Call For Papers

SIGHAN-6 Call for Papers

Background and Goals
Growing interest in Chinese language processing is leading to the development of resources such as annotated corpora, word segmenters, part-of-speech taggers, and parsers. As more resources have become available recently, it is crucial to create a platform that allows easy exchange of information and data and the comparison of different approaches to various NLP tasks. The SIGHAN workshops provide a forum where the latest research in these areas can be shared.

This series of workshop is organized under the auspices of the Special Interest Group on Chinese Language Processing (SIGHAN) under the Association for Computational Linguistics. SIGHAN was established in 2001 to realize and promote the widespread interest in Chinese language processing.

Following the success of previous SIGHAN workshops, IJCNLP-08 in Hyderabad will provide yet another ideal opportunity to bring together again influential as well as aspiring researchers from Asia Pacific, and those from many others from Europe and USA, to deliberate and interact on a range of research issues.

Papers are invited on substantial, original and unpublished research on all aspects of Chinese language processing, including but not limited to:

* word segmentation
* part-of-speech tagging
* parsing
* lexical semantics
* word sense disambiguation
* lexicon acquisition
* corpus development
* discourse processing
* generation
* cross-lingual information retrieval
* machine translation

SIGHAN has also featured its International Chinese Language Processing Bakeoffs, which attracted many research teams from all over the world to submit their word segmentation systems and named entity recognition systems for evaluation in the shared tasks, thus benchmarking for the two areas in the Chinese language processing community. The 4th bakeoff will be co-organised by SIGHAN, the Verifying Center on Chinese Language and Character Standards of the State Language Commission of PRC, and the ChineseLDC. Results from the bakeoff will be presented on the second half-day of the SIGHAN-6 Workshop. More information will follow in due course.

Submission Method

Papers should be written in English and may not exceed 8 pages (including all illustrations, references and appendices, and using 11pt for the main text). We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or MS Word document template provided by IJCNLP 2008, available at http://www.ijcnlp2008.org/callforpapers.htm. Since reviewing
will be blind, manuscripts should not include authors' names and affiliations. Papers should be submitted via our SIGHAN-6 electronic submission site.
