14th International Conference on Parsing Technologies (IWPT 2015)
Wednesday, July 22, to Friday, July 24, 2015
University of the Basque Country (Bilbao, Spain)
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
The ACL Special Interest Group on Natural Language Parsing (SIGPARSE)
invites submissions to its biennual conference on parsing technologies.
IWPT 2015 will be the 14th conference in a series that started in 1989.
The conference will be held between July 22 and July 24, 2015, in the
city center of Bilbao (Spain), hosted by the University of the Basque
Country. Please mark your calendars!
IWPT addresses all aspects of structural analysis of natural language,
including methods, evaluation, and applications. Please see the IWPT
2015 web site for a non-exhaustive list of example topics of interest.
We invite paper submissions in two distinct tracks:
+ regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research,
including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate; and
+ short papers on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress,
negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces.
Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in
the IWPT 2015 proceedings, which will be published by the ACL. After
the conference, we anticipate publication of a selection of papers in
extended and revised form as a journal special issue.
+ Friday, May 8, 2015: Submission of Papers
+ Friday, June 12, 2015: Notification of Acceptance
+ Friday, June 26, 2015: Camera-Ready Manuscripts
+ Wednesday to Friday, July 22 to 24, 2015: Conference
IWPT 2015 will provide style files for manuscript preparation in LaTeX
(preferred), Libre Office, or MS Word; templates will be available for
download from the conference web site (see above) by mid-February. All
submissions must follow these styles, which adopt the ACL tradition of
two-column layout (using A4-sized paper).
Submissions must be anonymous, i.e. not reveal author(s) on the title
page or through self-references. Papers must be submitted digitally,
in PDF, and uploaded through the on-line conference system, which will
open in early April. Paper submissions that violate either of these
requirements will be returned without review.
The page limits for submissions are: up to nine pages of content for
regular papers, and up to four pages of content for short papers; any
additional number of pages can be used for bibliographic references.
