FLAIRS 2011 Special Track on Applied Natural Language Processing

Held in conjunction with the
24th International FLAIRS Conference

Palm Beach, Florida, USA, May 18-20, 2011

Contact Email:

The track on Applied Natural Language Processing (ANLP), within FLAIRS, is a
forum for researchers working in natural language
processing(NLP)/computational linguistics(CL) and related areas. The rapid
pace of development of online materials, most of them in textual form or
text combined with other media (visual, audio), has led to a revived
interest for tools capable to understand, organize and mine those
materials. Novel human-computer interfaces, for instance talking heads, can
benefit from language understanding and generation techniques with big
impact on user satisfaction. Moreover, language can facilitate
human-computer interaction for the handicapped (no typing needed) and
elderly, leading to an ever increasing user base for computer systems.

The goal of ANLP is to inform researchers as to current project and studies
that identify, investigate, and (begin to) resolve issues that relate to
human/computer language interaction.

We invite highly original papers that describe work in, but not limited to,
the following areas:

* NL-based representations and knowledge systems
* Syntax and Semantics (similarity metrics, lexical semantics)
* Coreference Resolution
* Word Sense Disambiguation
* Text Cohesion and Coherence
* Dialogue Management and NL-based Human-Computer Interraction
* Language Generation (answer and question generation)
* Language Models
* NL in Learning Environments
* Machine Learning applied to NL problems
* Multilingual Processing
* BioNLP
* Standardization, Language Resources, Corpora Building and Annotation
* Semantic Web, Ontologies, Reasoning
* Applications: Machine Translation, Information Retrieval,
Summarization, Intelligent Tutoring, Question Answering, Information
Extraction and others
* Other related topics

Paper submission
Submitted papers must be original, and not submitted concurrently to a
journal or another conference. Full papers may be up to 6 pages, and poster
papers up to 2 pages. Papers must be in AAAI format, and submitted as PDF
through the EasyChair conference system
( by selecting "Applied
Natural Language Processing (ANLP)" under the "New Submission"
menu. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of FLAIRS-24 which
will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required
to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. An
author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend, and present
the paper at FLAIRS. It is the requirement of FLAIRS that there will be at
least one full author registration per paper.
