The 8th Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution Colloquium

Faro, Portugal
hosted by the University of Lisbon
October 6-7, 2011

Anaphora is a central topic in the study of natural language and has long
been the object of research in a wide range of disciplines such as
theoretical, corpus and computational linguistics, philosophy of language,
cognitive science, psycholinguistics and cognitive psychology. On the other
hand, the correct interpretation of anaphora has played an increasingly
vital role in real-world natural language processing applications, including
machine translation, automatic abstracting, information extraction and
question answering. As a result, the processing of anaphora has become one
of the most productive topics of multi- and inter-disciplinary research, and
has enjoyed increased interest and attention in recent years.

In this context, the Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution Colloquia
(DAARC) have emerged as the major regular forum for presentation and
discussion of the best research results in this area. Initiated in 1996 at
Lancaster University and taken over in 2002 by the University of Lisbon, and
moving out of Europe for the first time in 2009, to Goa, India, the DAARC
series established itself as a specialised and competitive forum for the
presentation of the latest results on anaphora processing, ranging from
theoretical linguistic approaches through psycholinguistic and cognitive
work to corpus studies and computational modelling.

The eighth Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution Colloquium (DAARC2011)
will take place in Faro, Portugal, in October 6-7, 2011. We would like to
invite anyone currently researching in the areas of discourse anaphora and
anaphor resolution, from any methodological perspective or framework, to
submit a paper to DAARC2011, including submissions presenting a thorough
discussion of a system and results obtained in the context of competitive
evaluations, with general interest or impact for the progress of the area.

The closing date for submission is June 1, 2011. Notification of acceptance
will be sent by July 15, 2011. Final versions of selected papers to be
included in the proceedings are expected by September 15, 2011. In past
editions, volumes with a selection of best papers have been published in
Springer's LNAI series.

Submissions (extended abstracts) must be anonymous and at most 3 pages in
length. For further details on the submission procedure and other relevant
