|The First International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (IJCNLP-04)|
The workshop is organized by JST CREST (Japan)
Corpus-based methods both in linguistics and NLP need breakthroughs for further development. Applications such as machine translation, Q/A with deductive inference ability, intelligent dialogue systems, etc. require deeper representation of meanings than surface constituent structures. Machine learning techniques also have to exploit more linguistically motivated features. Combining corpus-based methods with linguistic formalisms may give rise to a new type of linguistics.
This workshop addresses issues such as
We welcome papers expressing original and interesting ideas concerning the above issues, even though empirical evaluation through large experiments remains to be provided.
Submission deadline: January 31, 2004
(This WS will not prepare a printed version of the proceedings. Participants are expected to download papers to be presented and bring them to the site. However, we plan to publish a post-workshop proceedings as a book.)
Submissions should follow the format of the IJCNLP-04 main conference and should not exceed four (4) pages including references. We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Word style files provided by IJCNLP-04. The files and the detailed description of the format are available at the following site.
Since the reviewing process will be blind, the papers should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Further more, self-references that reveal the author's identity should be avoided.
All papers must be submitted electronically via e-mail to Yusuke Miyao (email@example.com) by January 31, 2004. PDF and PostScript files are acceptable. In the body of the submission e-mail, please include the following information: title, name(s) of author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address of the contact person.
