NAACL HLT 2007 Call for Papers
April 22-27, 2007, Rochester, New York
NAACL HLT 2007 continues the tradition of the combined Human Language Technology Conferences (HLT) and North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL) Annual Meetings begun in 2003. The conference covers a broad spectrum of disciplines working towards enabling intelligent systems to interact with humans using natural language, and towards enhancing human-human communication through services such as speech recognition, automatic translation, information retrieval, text summarization, and information extraction. NAACL HLT 2007 will feature full papers, late-breaking (short) papers, demonstrations, and a doctoral consortium, as well as pre- and post-conference tutorials and workshops. The conference is organized by the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL), who is advised by a board representing the IR and speech communities and North American HLT funding agencies.
Topics of Interest:The conference invites the submission of papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research in disciplines that could impact human language processing systems, with a special focus on theories and methods that enable compelling combinations of human language technologies (e.g., Speech with Information Retrieval, Machine Translation with Speech, Question Answering with Natural Language Processing, etc.). Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Full papers: Submissions must describe original, completed, unpublished work and should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding eight pages, including references. Each submission will be judged chiefly on the strength of the argument it provides in support of its contribution, through e.g. experimental evaluation, theoretical analysis, or critical engagement with HLT. Reviewing will be double-blind; each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members.
New: The deadline for full papers has been extended to October 18, 2006. Online submission is available at http://www.softconf.com/hlt/hlt-naacl07/submit.html
Late-breaking (short) papers: Submissions describing original, unpublished work can be submitted as short papers with a later deadline. The submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings without exceeding four pages, including references. Reviewing will be double-blind; each submission will be reviewed by at least two program committee members. Short paper submissions may be accepted for oral presentation in plenary OR for presentation in a poster session.
Format: Submissions must be electronic in PDF, should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings, and should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. Please see the conference website for detailed typesetting specifications. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word style files available on the conference website.
Demonstration, doctoral consortium, tutorial, and workshop proposals: See website.
Multiple-submission policy: Papers that have been or
will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this
information at submission time. If NAACL HLT accepts a paper, authors
must notify the program chairs by January 5, 2007 (main session
papers) or February 24 (short papers), indicating which meeting they
choose for presentation of their work. NAACL HLT 2007 cannot accept
for publication or presentation work that will be (or has been)
published elsewhere. For the short paper submissions to NAACL HLT, a
paper will be considered identical to a long paper (for example, an
eight-page paper submitted to ACL) if it does not differ in at least
two content pages from the long paper.
