AUSTRALASIAN LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOP (ALTA 2010)
Call for Papers
9th and 10th December 2010, Melbourne, Australia
Submissions deadline: Monday 20th September 2010
This year, the Australasian Language Technology Workshop (ALTA) will be held at the University of Melbourne in Melbourne on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th of December 2010. This event will be the eighth 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We invite the submission of papers on original and unpublished research on all aspects of natural language processing, including, but not limited to: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.
This year, reviewing of papers will be double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith (1991) previously showed ...".
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. Detailed directions for submission will be made available at the workshop website. Contact the organisers for any questions regarding this process.
The full proceedings volume will have an ISSN and will be published online on the ACL anthology website as well as the website of the Australasian Language Technology Association (ALTA).
