The 26th Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and
Computation (PACLIC 26) will be held in Bali on November 8-10, 2012,
organized by the Faculty of Computer Science, Universitas Indonesia.
The PACLIC series of conferences emphasize the synergy of
theoretical analysis and processing of language, and provides a
forum for researchers in different fields of language study in the
Pacific-Asia region to share their findings and interests in the
formal and empirical study of languages. Organized under the
auspices of the PACLIC Steering Committee, PACLIC 26 will be the
latest instalment of our long standing collaborative efforts among
theoretical and computational linguists in the Pacific-Asia region.
The conference this year marks a special moment as it will be the
25th anniversary of the PACLIC conference series, and a special
commemorative event is being planned and organized.
Paper submissions of original and unpublished research are invited
on all aspects of both theoretical and computational linguistics.
Topics include but are not limited to: morphology, phonology,
syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, typology, corpus
linguistics, formal grammar theory, language acquisition and
language learning, human and machine language processing, language
resources and language technology and possible applications of those
research areas. Papers exemplifying synergy of multi-disciplinary
approaches on the construction of language resources and system
development that would assist language learning are particularly
encouraged. Among the various research topics that may be addressed,
one or more of the following issues may be included, to further
mutual advancement among studies on language, information and
* How formal linguistic analyses can and has informed language
technology in advancing the development of language processing
* What light theoretical linguistics has shed on the information
demand of natural language processing, and how it has led to
large-scale machine-usable language resources.
* How collections of learner language resources may improve learning,
teaching and testing of native and non-native languages.
* What insights cognitive science, psycholinguistic research and brain
imaging technology have brought about regarding the nature of
language and language learning / acquisition.
* What is the limit of pure computational methods like machine
learning in language processing? What roles do related disciplines
such as cognitive science and psycholinguistics have to play in
bridging the gap between human and computer language processing?
* How multilingual data and multilingual speakers can inform our
analysis of language, from both the theoretical and practical points
Submissions should describe substantial, original, and unpublished
work. Papers should be written in readable and plain English and may
not exceed ten (10) pages, including references. Submissions
will be judged based on reviewer scores for relevance to the
conference, clarity and readability, originality of approach
proposed, technical and theoretical soundness, adequacy of reference
and discussion of previous study, and interest to the attendees.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee
members and/or additional reviewers. As the reviewing process will
be anonymous, manuscripts must not include the authors' names and
affiliations and authors should be careful not to reveal their
identities in the paper. Papers that do not conform to these
requirements may be rejected without review.
Accepted papers will be presented in one of the regular sessions or
interactive & poster sessions as determined by the program
committee. Such decisions will be based on the nature rather than on
the quality of the work submitted. Accepted papers will be published
in the conference proceedings volume, which will subsequently be
digitally archived and also sent to ISI/Thomson Reuters for
indexing. Please refer to the PACLIC Steering Committee web site for
Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair at
The deadline for paper submissions has been extended to July 9, 2012.
instructions for authors and manuscript templates are available from
the conference website.
