Meeting Description:

DAARC 2011 The 8th Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution Colloquium

Faro, Portugal
Hosted by the University of Lisbon
October 6-7, 2011

Anaphora is a central topic in the study of natural language and has long been the object of research in a wide range of disciplines such as theoretical, corpus and computational linguistics, philosophy of language, cognitive science, psycholinguistics and cognitive psychology. On the other hand, the correct interpretation of anaphora has played an increasingly vital role in real-world natural language processing applications, including machine translation, automatic abstracting, information extraction and question answering. As a result, the processing of anaphora has become one of the most productive topics of multi- and inter-disciplinary research, and has enjoyed increased interest and attention in recent years.

In this context, the Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution Colloquia (DAARC) have emerged as the major regular forum for presentation and discussion of the best research results in this area. Initiated in 1996 at Lancaster University and taken over in 2002 by the University of Lisbon, and moving out of Europe for the first time in 2009, to Goa, India, the DAARC series established itself as a specialised and competitive forum for the presentation of the latest results on anaphora processing, ranging from theoretical linguistic approaches through psycholinguistic and cognitive work to corpus studies and computational modelling.

Call for Papers:

We would like to invite anyone currently researching in the areas of discourse anaphora and anaphor resolution, from any methodological perspective or framework, to submit a paper to DAARC2011, including submissions presenting a thorough discussion of a system and results obtained in the context of competitive evaluations, with general interest or impact for the progress of the area.

The closing date for submission is June 1, 2011. Notification of acceptance will be sent by July 15, 2011. Final versions of selected papers to be included in the proceedings are expected by September 15, 2011. In past editions, volumes with a selection of best papers have been published in Springer's LNAI series.

Submissions (extended abstracts) must be anonymous and at most 3 pages in length. For further details on the submission procedure and other relevant info on the colloquium visit its website at:
