=================================================================
                FINAL Call for Paper Submissions

              ***Submission deadline extended!***

                 Jun 06, 2010 at 23:59 (GMT-7)


                          COLING 2010
               Workshop on Multiword Expressions:
             from Theory to Applications (MWE 2010)

                http://multiword.sf.net/mwe2010

  endorsed by the Special Interest Group on the Lexicon of the
       Association for Computational Linguistics (SIGLEX)

                          Beijing, China

 

=================================================================

Multiword Expressions (MWEs) are a ubiquitous component of natural
languages and appear steadily on a daily basis, both in specialized
and in general-purpose communication. While easily mastered by
native speakers, their interpretation poses a major challenge for
automated analysis due to their flexible and heterogeneous nature.
Therefore, the automated processing of MWEs is desirable for any
natural language application that involves some degree of semantic
interpretation, e.g., Machine Translation, Information Extraction,
and Question Answering.

In spite of the recent advances in the field, there is a wide range
of open problems that prevent MWE treatment techniques from full
integration in current NLP systems. In MWE'2010, we will be 
interested in major challenges in the overall process of MWE
treatment, asking for original research related but not limited to
the following topics:

* MWE resources: Although underused in most current state-of-the-art
    approaches, resources are key for developing real-world
    applications capable of interpreting MWEs. We call for papers
    describing the process of building MWE resources, constructed
    both manually and automatically from text corpora; we are also
    interested in assessing the usability of such resources in
    various MWE tasks.

* Hybrid approaches: We invite research on integrating heterogeneous
    MWE treatment techniques and resources in NLP applications. Such
    hybrid approaches can aim, for example, at the combination of
    results from symbolic and statistical approaches, at the fusion
    of manually built and automatically extracted resources, or at
    the design of language learning techniques.

* Domain adaptation: Real-world NLP applications need to be robust
    to deal with texts coming from different domains. We thus call
    for papers assessing the performance of MWE methods across
    domains or describing domain adaptation techniques for MWEs.

* Multilingualism: Parallel and comparable corpora are gaining
    popularity as a resource for automatic MWE discovery and
    treatment. We are also interested in the integration of MWE
    processing in multilingual applications such as machine
    translation and multilingual information retrieval, as well as
    in porting existing monolingual MWE approaches to new languages.


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

We invite submissions of original and unpublished work as full
papers. All submissions must follow the format of COLING 2010 
proceedings, available at http://www.coling-2010.org/SubmissionGuideline.htm
We strongly advise the use of the provided Word or LaTeX template 
files. Full papers should not exceed eight (8) pages for the 
content, with one (1) extra page for references, thus the total 
lenght should not exceed nine pages (9) inclusive of references. 
Reviewing will be double-blind, and thus no author information
should be included in the papers; self-reference should be avoided
as well. 

Submission will be electronic in PDF format through the workshop
START system, available soon at https://www.softconf.com/coling2010/mwe2010/
The papers must be submitted no later than May 30, 2010 
at 23:59 PDT (GMT-7). No deadline extensions will be granted.


Submitted papers that do not conform to these requirements will be
rejected without review. Accepted papers will appear in the workshop
proceedings and will be presented orally.
