Call For Papers

Final CFP: 2nd International Workshop on Natural Language Visualisation

CALL FOR PAPERS

To be held in conjunction with KES2011: 15th International Conference on
Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems
Co-Chairs:
Dr. Minhua Ma, The Glasgow School of Art, UK
Bob Coyne, Columbia University, USA

Aims and Scope
Natural language understanding usually involves transforming language from
one representation into another, for example, from one language into another
language in machine translation, or from language to action in natural
language interfaces where natural language commands are performed by a
machine, or from language to visual representations in natural language
visualisation. A language visualisation system understands natural language
by transforming it from a linguistic form into a visual medium, such as a 3D
scene or animation. The vital issues of natural language visualisation
include representation of common sense knowledge, disambiguation, lexicons
and ontology, spatial reasoning, animation generation, just to name a few.
Currently, it is a quite new interdisciplinary subject emerging from the
areas of natural language processing and computer graphics.

The 2nd International Workshop on Natural Language Visualisation aims to
provide a platform for researchers from around the globe to share their
ideas, experience and research outcomes in natural language processing and 3D
visualisation and to nurture interdisciplinary research on the new subject of
language visualisation. Authors are invited to submit papers based upon
academically rigorous research in both theoretical development and applied
research. Papers should present original work that has not been published.
Papers with real-world applications are especially welcome.

Subject Coverage

The main topic of the workshop is 3D visualisation of natural language.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1. 3D visualisation
* Computer animation
* Physically-based simulation
* Automatic 3D scene and animation generation
* Embodied Agents, Virtual Humans

2. Natural Language Processing, computational linguistics
* Natural language understanding
* Computational semantics
* Word sense disambiguation
* Knowledge representation, common sense knowledge representation
* Lexical semantics
* Ontology, lexicons
Instructions for Prospective Authors

The published papers are expected to present high quality material that
illustrates the broad range of exciting work being carried out across the
work in natural language visualisation. Accepted papers in the workshop will
be included in the main conference proceedings, which will be published by
Springer LNAI and indexed in ISI as a conference publication, in EI,
Springerlink, Inspec and a number of other places.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in
the KES Journal (International Journal of Knowledge-Based and Intelligent
Engineering Systems) published by IOS Press,
http://www.kesinternational.org/journal

All papers must be original and of approximately 6-8 pages in length at the
publication stage. All papers will be peer-reviewed by the international
program committee, and may be accepted for oral presentation. A guide for
authors, templates, and other relevant information for submitting papers are
available on the Springer Information for LNCS Authors webpage
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0).
Papers should be submitted online through the PROSE system. Detailed
instructions on paper submission are provided at
http://kes2011.kesinternational.org/prose.php

Important Dates

Manuscript due: 1 April 2011
Final paper due: 1 May 2011
Registration deadline for presenting authors: 1 May 2011
At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the main
conference KES2011. If the registration fees are not received by 1 May 2011
the paper will not be included in the Springer LNAI conference proceedings.
