Call for Papers

The 19th Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation (PACLIC19) will be held in Academia Sinica on December 1-3, 2005. Following the long tradition of PACLIC conferences, PACLIC19 emphasizes the synergy of linguistic analysis and language processing  - from theoretical frameworks to cognitive accounts, from information processing to language understanding, and from computational modelling to multi-lingual application. PACLIC19 will be hosted by the Institute of Linguistics, Academia Sinica, and Taiwan's academic association for computational linguistics, the Association for Computational Linguistics and Chinese Language Processing (ACLCLP). The PACLIC19 website can be found at

We invite submissions of extended abstracts of unpublished research on all aspects of theoretical and computational linguistics with special focus on language spoken in the Pacific Asia region. Possible topics include but are not limited to: (1) morphology, (2) phonology, (3) syntax, (4) semantics, (5) pragmatics, (6) discourse analysis, (7) typology, (8) corpus linguistics, (9) formal grammar theory, (10) natural language processing, (11) natural language systems and (12) related computer applications.

Abstracts should not be longer than six (6) A4 pages (about 1,500 words). They should use 11pt fonts and double line spacing throughout. Author information should appear in a separate page containing the following information: (1) title of the paper, (2) name(s) of the author(s), (3) affiliation(s), (4) postal address, (5) e-mail address for correspondence, (6) the preference for oral or poster presentation, and (7) the intention to be considered for young scholar award.
