Call for Papers

The Conference of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology (GSCL) in 2011 will take place from 28th to 30th September 2011 at the University of Hamburg. The main conference theme is Multilingual Resources and Multilingual Applications.

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. The topic “Multilingual Resources and Multilingual Applications” comprises all aspects of compu-tational linguistics and speech and language technology in which issues of multilingualism, of language contrasts or of language independent representations play a major role. This in-cludes, for instance:

  • representation and analysis of parallel corpora and comparable corpora
  • multilingual lexical resources
  • machine translation
  • annotation and analysis of learner corpora
  • linguistic variation in linguistic data and applications
  • localisation and internationalisation

Conference languages are English and German; contributions are welcome in both languages. Three types of submission are invited:

  • Regular talk – Submission of an extended abstract
  • Poster – Submission of an abstract
  • System presentation – Submission of an abstract

Only contributions in electronic form will be accepted. We do not provide style sheets for submissions at this stage; constraints on length are given below. Submissions must be submitted via the electronic conference system. Accepted abstracts will be published as a book of abstracts on the occasion of the conference. Extended versions of the papers will be published as a special issue of the Journal for Language Technology and Computational Linguistics after the conference.
