Call for Papers

PACLIC 24, organized under the auspices of PACLIC Steering Committee, will
be the latest installment of our long standing collaborative efforts among
theoretical and computational linguists in the Pacific-Asia region for
providing an opportunity to share their findings and interests in the
formal and empirical study of languages. Paper submissions of original and
unpublished research are invited on all aspects of both theoretical
and computational linguistics.

Topics include but are not limited to:
morphology, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis,
typology, corpus linguistics, formal grammar theory, language acquisition
and language learning, human and machine language processing, language
resources and language technology and possible applications of those
research areas.

Papers exemplifying synergy of multi-disciplinary approaches on the
construction of language resources and system development that would assist
language learning are particularly encouraged.

Invited Speakers:
Stanley Peters (Stanford University)
Julia Hockenmaier (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

This year, we highlight Student Session, in which each student speaker will
make a short oral presentation. The speakers also give poster presentations
to explain the details of the research. The focus of the session is placed
more on uniqueness, innovativeness, and interdisciplinarity than on
completeness of the research. Bursaries covering partial travel expenses
are available for excellent speakers. The best speaker of the session will
be awarded a prize at the end of the conference. A submission to Student
Session must be specified by choosing the submission category 'Student

Paper Submission:

at the conference web site.

The deadline for paper submissions is 23:59 June 14th, 2010 JST (GMT+9).
Submissions should be made via Easychair at:

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings volume,
which will subsequently be digitally archived at Waseda University Library
Institutional Repository and also sent to ISI for indexing. PACLIC
conference proceedings are indexed in the ISI Web of Science since 2002 and
authors are encouraged to cite previous PACLIC papers in their work. See
PACLIC Steering Committee web site
(http://www.decode.waseda.ac.jp/PACLIC-STEERING/) for details.

Inquiries about abstract submission should be sent to:
