GSCL 2013: International Conference of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology
GSCL 2013 – First Call for Papers
Apologies for multiple postings. Please distribute widely. Thanks!
The bi-annual meeting of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology (GSCL) in 2013 will take place from 25th to 27th September at Technische Universität Darmstadt organized by the UKP Lab, Department of Computer Science. See also http://gscl2013.ukp.informatik.tu-darmstadt.de/ for details.
This time, the conference will especially try to attract international researchers, both in terms of the conference language, conference topics and a variety of specialized paper tracks, attracting different types of papers. The conference proceedings will appear as part of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.
The main conference theme is “Language Processing and Knowledge in the Web”. This has been an area of great and steadily increasing interest within the language processing and related communities over the past years. Both in terms of academic research and commercial applications, the Web stimulated and influenced the research directions yielding results with impact beyond the Web itself. Thus, it will be highly useful to highlight the most recent advances within this domain and consolidate the individual research outcomes in a major language processing conference.
Contributions to any topic related to Computational Linguistics and Language Technology are invited, but we especially encourage submissions that are related to the main theme.
* NLP for the Web: How language processing enhances the use of the Web
- Document Summarization
- Question Answering
- Information Extraction from the Web
- Multilingual Processing
- Semantic Web applications empowered by NLP
- Semantic Information Retrieval
- Social Media Analysis
- Text and Web mining
- Topic Detection and Tracking in the Web
