Call For Papers

EACL 2009: First Call for Papers
March 30 - April 3, 2009
Athens, Greece

Submission deadline: October 10, 2008

EACL 2009 is the 12th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association
for Computational Linguistics. The conference invites the submission of
papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research on all aspects of
computational linguistics, including, but not limited to:

- phonetics, phonology, and morphology;
- spoken language processing and language modeling;
- word segmentation, tagging, and chunking;
- syntax, parsing, and grammar formalisms;
- lexical semantics and word sense disambiguation;
- compositional semantics and textual entailment;
- pragmatics, discourse, and dialogue;
- lexicon, lexical databases, and ontologies;
- generation and summarization;
- information retrieval, question answering, and information extraction;
- machine translation and multilingual systems;
- dialogue systems and multimodal systems;
- language resources and tools, and resources for lesser studied languages;
- linguistic, psychological, and mathematical models of language;
- machine learning and algorithms for natural language;
- evaluation methodology.


Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed work
rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of
completion of the reported results. A paper accepted for presentation at
EACL 2009 cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting
with publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being
submitted to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the
submission page.

Review and Selection

Reviewing of papers will be double-blind, and all submissions will receive
three independent reviews. Final decisions on the program will be made by
the Program Committee, consisting of the Program Co-Chairs and Area Chairs.
Submissions will be assessed with respect to appropriateness, clarity,
soundness/correctness, meaningful comparison, originality/innovativeness,
and impact of ideas or results. For more information about the review
criteria, see the review form appended below.

Publication and Presentation

All papers that are accepted will be published in the proceedings of the
conference, and will be presented as a poster or an oral presentation.
Authors will be asked on submission to state their preferred mode of
presentation, and the program committee will attempt to fulfill as many
of these preferences as possible, organizational factors permitting.
EACL 2009 will additionally aim to give poster presentations higher
status than usual (by scheduling, physical arrangement, combination with
refreshments). The proceedings will not distinguish long papers by
presentation format.

Submission Information

All submissions must be electronic in PDF and must follow the two-column
format of EACL proceedings. Authors are strongly recommended to use the
style files available on the conference web site. The maximum length of
a manuscript is eight (8) pages of content and one (1) additional page
of references. The page limits have to be strictly observed.

As reviewing will be double-blind, the paper should not include the
authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal
the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...",
should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously
showed (Smith, 1991) ...". (Do not use anonymous citations.) Do not
include acknowledgments. Papers that do not conform to these requirements
will be rejected without review.

The deadline for submission is 23:59 CET on October 10, 2008. Additional
instructions for electronic submission will be posted on the conference
website at
