The theme of the conference is "Language Technology for Diversity Bridging".
The Symposium on Natural Language Processing (SNLP) is an international conference held biannually since 1993 with the cooperative effort of a number of universities in Thailand. The purpose of SNLP is to promote research in Natural Language Processing by bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field to exchange ideas and present results from research in Natural Language Processing and various related fields. Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not limited to:
- syntax, semantics, grammars, lexicon, morphology and phonology
- pragmatics and discourse
- parsing, generation and summarization
- machine translation and multilingual processing
- question answering, information extraction, information retrieval and text mining
- natural language applications, tools and resources, system evaluation
- natural language processing for web, knowledge-management systems
- language modeling, statistical methods in natural language processing
- machine learning for natural language
- natural language interfaces and dialogue systems
- lexical semantics and ontologies for NLP
- linguistic, psychological and mathematical models of language
- computational psycholinguistics
- phonetics, phonology and morphology
- interpreting and generating spoken and written language
- message and narrative understanding systems
- speech processing
- evaluation of speech understanding/dialogue systems
- multi-modal speech corpora
- speech corpus annotation tools
- spoken language processing
- the internet's effects on linguistic diversity
- modifying computers to meet minority language requirements
Papers should describe original work. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees. A paper accepted for presentation at the SNLP2007 cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that contain significant overlap with previously published work.
2. Submission Information
Submissions should follow a two-column format and should not exceed six (6) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use of SNLP2007 Style files tailored for SNLP2007. The files and a description of the format are available in the submission site.
Submission Site: http://naist.cpe.ku.ac.th/snlp2007
Note that full paper submissions are restricted to 6 pages.
Note also that as reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Kim, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Kim, 1991) ...". Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to be rejected without review.
