****************************************************************
IWPT 2013, 13th International Conference on Parsing Technologies
****************************************************************

November 27-29, 2013
Nara, Japan

Sponsored by ACL/SIGPARSE
Organized by Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST)
http://acl.cs.qc.edu/iwpt2013/

ACL/SIGPARSE will host the 13th International Conference on Parsing Technologies
(IWPT 2013) on November 27-29, 2013, organized by the Nara Institute of Science
and Technology (NAIST) in Nara, Japan.

IWPT 2013 continues the tradition of biennial workshops/conferences on parsing
technology initiated by Masaru Tomita and organized by SIGPARSE, the Special
Interest Group on Natural Language Parsing of the Association for Computational
Linguistics (ACL). The first workshop in Pittsburgh and Hidden Valley has been
followed by conferences in Cancun (Mexico) in 1991; Tilburg (Netherlands) and
Durbuy (Belgium) in 1993; Prague and Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic) in 1995;
Boston/Cambridge (Massachusetts) in 1997; Trento (Italy) in 2000; Beijing (China)
in 2001; Nancy (France) in 2003; Vancouver (Canada) in 2005; Prague (Czech Republic)
in 2007; Paris (France) in 2009; and Dublin (Ireland) in 2011.


Topics of interest for IWPT 2013
-------------------------------------------
IWPT 2013 invites the submission of papers on original and unpublished research
relevant to natural language parsing, including but not limited to:

parsing of natural language (phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, discourse, etc.);

formal models and algorithms for recognition, parsing and transduction;

machine learning techniques for syntax and parsing

complexity of languages, models and algorithms;

learning of recursive structure (linguistic/latent);

parsing in machine translation (synchronous parsing; alignment by parsing; translation by parsing, etc.);

cognitive models of language processing;

multilingual and multimodal perspectives on syntax and parsing;

domain and genre adaptation, portability and robustness of parsing systems;

practical applications of parsing technology;

parser evaluation (across languages and frameworks)

Important Dates
----------------------
Deadline for paper submission: September 1, 2013
Notification of acceptance: October 15, 2013
Final papers due: November 1, 2013
Conference: November 27-29, 2013


Submission Information
--------------------------------
Two types of regular submissions are invited:

Long papers (up to 8 pages + references) are appropriate for completed work with a substantial research contribution.

Short papers (up to 6 pages + references) are appropriate for small, focused contributions, but also for work in progress, project notes, and position papers.

IWPT 2013 also invites submissions for:

Position papers (up to 8 pages + references) are appropriate for work that proposes or defends positions of general interest the SIGPARSE community. These papers will be judged upon scope of topic, novelty of ideas, thoroughness, quality of argumentation, timeliness of topic and expected impact on the IWPT research community.

IWPT 2013 will offer a Best Student Paper Award to papers of which the main author is a student.

Detailed formatting and submission instructions for authors will be published at
the conference website: http://acl.cs.qc.edu/iwpt2013/.
