Call For Papers
2nd Argentinian Workshop on Natural Language Processing
August 5-6, 2011
Submissions are invited for papers, posters and demonstrations presenting high quality, previously unpublished research on all areas of computational linguistics and natural language processing. Contributions may present results from completed as well as ongoing research, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives. Submissions concerning languages in the Americas (including Portuguese and Spanish) are particularly welcome.
WORKSHOP MOTIVATION AND AIMS
The workshop aims at offering an insight into current research and developments within the interdisciplinary field of natural language processing, including those topics where Computational Linguistics and Web-based technologies intersect. Both areas are inherently multidisciplinary and working on related problems. The workshop is intended to foster collaboration in information and language technologies.
This workshop is also conceived to provide a forum for researchers at all levels and from heterogeneous backgrounds to present their work within this field of research. Moreover, it is intended to promote the area of Computational Linguistics in Argentina in particular and in Latin America in general, and to establish and consolidate connections between communities in the Iberoamerican area.
Submissions should describe original and unpublished research or innovative industrial applications. Topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:
* Spoken Language
* Language Generation
* Phonetics and Phonology
* Syntax and Morphology
* Lexicology and Lexicography
* Formal and Computational Semantics
* Pragmatics and Discourse
* Corpus Linguistics
* Linguistic Theories applied to NLP
* Statistical and Corpus-Based NLP
* Text Mining
* Machine Translation and Summarization
* Information Extraction
* Information Retrieval
* Classification and Clustering
* Question Answering
* Opinion Mining
* Human-Computer Interaction
* Systems Construction and Evaluation
* Clustering the blogosphere
* Blog summarization
* Subjectivity in texts
* Sentiment analysis
* Automatic humour recognition
* Folksonomies and social tagging
* Clustering and visualization of tag clouds
* Plagiarism detection of ideas
* Opinion analysis
* Sources of opinions and authorship attribution
* Product analysis and text-based market analysis
* Enterprise 2.0 search
* Web advisors
We welcome three types of contributions:
* Full papers for oral presentation (10 pages), presenting substantial, original and completed research work.
* Short papers for presentation as posters (6 pages), with a small, focused contribution, work in progress, a negative result or an opinion piece.
* Student research papers for presentation at the Student Session (10 pages), authored exclusively by students.
Short papers/posters can be combined with a system demonstration.
The only accepted format for submitting papers is Adobe PDF. The format should follow the easychair instructions available at
As the review process will be double-blind, your submission must not include the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s). Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Pérez, 2003) ...", must be avoided. Instead, citations such as "Pérez (2003) previously showed ...", must be used.
The proceedings of the workshop will be published as Technical Reports and as CEUR workshop proceedings (CEUR-WS.org, ISSN 1613-0073).
