The Conference on Natural Language Processing ("Konferenz zur Verarbeitung
NatürlicherSprache", KONVENS) aims at offering a broad perspective on current
research and developments within the interdisciplinary field of natural language
processing. It provides a forum for researchers from all disciplines relevant to
this field of research to present their work.

The central theme of the 10th KONVENS is
"Semantic approaches in Natural Language Processing".

We especially encourage the submission of contributions addressing linguistic
aspects of meaning. Topics of interest include deep as well as shallow
approaches, and knowledge-based as well as data-driven methods for modelling and
acquiring semantic information. We equally encourage submissions on the use of
semantic information in applications of language technology. Submissions should
describe original and unpublished research or innovative industrial applications.

Young researchers in particular are encouraged to present their completed work
for discussion.

Invited Speakers
Anette Frank (Universität Heidelberg)
Ed Hovy (ISI, University of Southern California)
Gerhard Weikum (Max-Plack-Institut für Informatik, Saarbrücken)

We welcome two types of contributions:

Full papers for oral presentation (8 pages)
Short papers for presentation as posters (4 pages)

Short papers/posters can be combined with a system demonstration. All
submissions must be made electronically through the conference website. Reviews
will be anonymous. Accepted full and short papers will be published in the
conference proceedings.

The conference languages are English and German. We encourage the submission of
contributions in English.

Submissions should not exceed 8 pages for full papers or 4 pages for short
papers/posters. Submission will be electronic, managed by the EasyChair system,
which will be made available soon. The only accepted format for submitting
papers is Adobe PDF. For more information and formatting guidelines please see
the full Call for Papers at http://www.konvens2010.de/cfp.html.

As the review process will be anonymous, your submission must not include the
author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), or other indications of the author(s)
identity. If you encounter a submission problem or in case you have any
questions, please contact the program committee (programkonvens2010.de).
