    Ruhr-Universität Bochum

    Call for Papers

We welcome original, unpublished contributions on research, development, 
applications and evaluation, covering all areas of natural language 
processing, ranging from basic questions to practical implementations of 
natural language resources, components and systems.

The special theme of the 13th KONVENS is:

/Processing non-standard data — commonalities and differences/

A wide range of data can be considered “non-standard” because it 
deviates in one way or the other from standard written data such as 
newspaper texts. Examples include:

  * data produced by language learners
  * historical data
  * data from social media
  * (transcriptions of) spoken data

We especially encourage the submission of contributions comparing 
different types of non-standard data and their properties, focussing on 
their impact for natural language processing. For example, a feature 
common to many types of non-standard data is the use of non-standard 
spelling. However, spelling variation in learner data as compared to 
historical data is due to very different reasons and, most likely, 
resulting in very different types of non-standard spellings.

Topics that we would like to see addressed include:

  * Common properties of (many) non-standard data, e.g. non-standard
    spelling, data sparseness, features of orality
  * Impact of the commonalities and differences of non-standard data on
    the methods and tools that are applied to the data, e.g.
    normalization vs. tool adaptation, evaluation without gold standard,

      Important Dates

*May 30, 2016* 	Paper submissions due
*July 15, 2016* 	Notification of acceptance
*August 15, 2016* 	Camera-ready copy due

Short papers/posters can be combined with a system demonstration. 
Reviews will be anonymous. Accepted full and short papers will be 
published in the conference proceedings.
