to be held as part of HCSNet SummerFest 2009
Submissions deadline: Monday 28th September 2009
This year, the Australasian Language Technology Workshop (ALTA) will be held as part of the HCSNet Summerfest at the University of New South Wales in Sydney on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th of December 2009. This event will be the seventh annual installment of the ALTA Workshop in its most-recent incarnation, and the continuation of an annual workshop series that has existed under various guises since the early 90s.
The goals of the ALTA workshop are:
We invite the submission of papers on original and unpublished research on all aspects of natural language processing, including, but not limited to:
We welcome submissions on any topic that is of interest to the LT community, and particularly encourage submissions that broaden the scope of our community through the consideration of practical LT applications and through multi-disciplinary research. We also specifically encourage submissions from industry.
All submissions should follow the ACL style guidelines and must be in PDF format.
Full paper submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding eight (8) pages of content plus one extra page for references. Accepted full papers will be presented orally at the workshop.
Short paper submissions should also follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding four (4) pages of content plus one extra page for references. Accepted short papers will be presented as posters at the workshop.
Note that full papers can be accepted as short papers as determined by the program committee. Full papers will be distinguished from short papers in the proceedings.
We strongly recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style files tailored for this year's conference. The style files and example documents are available from the workshop website.We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles including font and page size restrictions.
If we cannot print your PDF file by the submission date it will be rejected without being reviewed. Therefore you are encouraged to send an early version with the typographical complexity of your final intended version so that we can check it is printable. All papers should include the full authors' names and affiliations. (Note that this diverges from the "blind" submission guidelines adopted for ACL conferences.) Detailed directions for submission will be made available at the workshop website. Contact the organisers for any questions regarding this process.
A proceedings containing all papers (full paper and short paper submissions) will be produced and published by HCSNet in CD-ROM format. The full proceedings volume will also be published online on the website of the Australasian Language Technology Association (ALTA).
