Call for Papers for NAACL HLT 2009
May 31 – June 5, 2009, Boulder, Colorado

Deadline for full paper submission – Monday, December 1, 2008
Deadline for short paper submission – Monday, February 9, 2009
NAACL HLT 2009 combines the Annual Meeting of the North American Association for
Computational Linguistics (NAACL) with the Human Language Technology Conference
(HLT) of NAACL. 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 2009 will feature full papers, short papers, posters,
demonstrations, and a doctoral consortium, as well as pre- and post-conference tutorials
and workshops.
The conference invites the submission of papers on substantial, original, and unpublished
research in disciplines that could impact human language processing systems.  We
encourage the submission of short papers that can be characterized as a small, focused
contribution, a work in progress, a negative result, an opinion piece or an interesting
application note. A separate review form for short papers will be introduced this year.
NAACL HLT 2009 aims to hold two special sessions, Large Scale Language Processing
and Speech Indexing and Retrieval.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas, and are understood to be
applied to speech and/or text:

-    Large scale language processing
-    Speech indexing and retrieval
-    Information retrieval (including monolingual and CLIR)
-    Information extraction
-    Speech-centered applications (e.g., human-computer, human-robot interaction,
education and learning systems, assistive technologies, digital entertainment)
-    Machine translation
-    Summarization
-    Question answering
-    Topic classification and information filtering
-    Non-topical classification (e.g., sentiment/attribution/genre analysis)
-    Topic clustering
-    Text and speech mining
-    Statistical and machine learning techniques for language processing
-    Spoken term detection and spoken document indexing
-    Language generation
-    Speech synthesis
-    Speech understanding
-    Speech analysis and recognition
-    Multilingual processing
-    Phonology
-    Morphology (including word segmentation)
-    Part of speech tagging
-    Syntax and parsing (e.g., grammar induction, formal grammar, algorithms)
-    Word sense disambiguation
-    Lexical semantics
-    Formal semantics and logic
-    Textual entailment and paraphrasing
-    Discourse and pragmatics
-    Dialog systems
-    Knowledge acquisition and representation
-    Evaluation (e.g., intrinsic, extrinsic, user studies)
-    Development of language resources (e.g., lexicons, ontologies, annotated corpora)
-    Rich transcription (automatic annotation of information structure and sources in
-    Multimodal representations and processing, including speech and gesture
