The International Committee on Computational Linguistics invites the
submission of papers for COLING 94, the 15th International Conference
on Computational Linguistics, in Kyoto, Japan.


Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research
on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not
limited to, the followings.

- syntax - parsing
- semantics - generation
- phonetics - language understanding
- phonology - speech analysis/synthesis
- morphology - computational lexicons
- discourse - electronic dictionaries
- pragmatics - terminology
- quantitative/qualitative linguistics - text database and retrieval
- mathematical linguistics - documentation
- contrastive linguistics - machine translation
- cognitive linguistics - machine aids for translation
- large text corpora - natural language interface
- text processing - dialogue systems
- hardware/software for NLP - multimedia systems


Papers should be either topical papers (maximum six pages in final
format) or project notes with demonstration (maximum four pages),
preferably in English. Both should describe original work. The
project note should specify the computer platform that will be used.
They should emphasize completed work rather than intended work, and
they should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported
results. A paper accepted for presentation at the COLING Conference
cannot be presented at another conference.


Authors should submit four copies of preliminary versions of their
papers with the page limits above, on A4 paper with the title,
author(s), addresses (including email if possible), affiliation across
the page top, a short (five line) summary, the words: topical paper or
project note, and a specification of the topic area preferably drawn
from the list above. As well, authors are strongly urged to email the
title page information by the deadline date. Send the papers and
emails to:

Department of Computer Science
University of Sheffield
Sheffield S10 2UH, England
Email: coling@dcs.sheffield.ac.uk
