                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                     IJCNLP-04 Thematic Session on

                Natural Language Technologies in Mobile
       Information Retrieval and Text Processing User Interfaces



    One of the strongest impacts in recent information technology is
    the way mobility has changed computer applications. The rapid
    rate of handphone adoption, the ubiquitous PDA, and the low cost
    of wireless adoption has created new problems, new challenges,
    and new opportunities to researchers in many disciplines. One
    common thread through all these applications is the necessity
    for information retrieval and mobile text processing in one form
    or another. Another characteristic is the limited size of mobile
    devices and the consequent need for sophisticated methods of
    text input and output. Other applications with a similar need of
    language technology support under challenging conditions include
    e.g. communication aids and authoring tools.

    The use of NLP plays an integral part in creating better user
    interfaces, more efficient text input technologies, authoring
    aids, summarization and analysis of output for precise display,
    and greater understanding in the interactive dialogue between
    user and applications working on text. We invite researchers
    focusing on

    - text input and output technologies,
    - language modeling,
    - summarization,
    - mobile database & information retrieval and management,
    - speech and dialogue IR applications on mobile devices,

    and HCI researchers on text retrieval and processing systems to
    explore user oriented and theoretical limits and characteristics
    of NLP for front-end and back-end solutions within the context
    of text retrieval and processing user interfaces.


    Papers should describe original work. Submissions will be judged
    on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance
    and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees.

    A paper accepted for presentation at the IJCNLP-04 cannot be
    presented or have been presented at any other meeting with
    publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being
    submitted to other conferences or workshops must indicate this
    on the title page, as must papers that contain significant
    overlap with previously published work.


    Submissions should follow a two-column format and should not
    exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly
    recommend the use of IJCNLP-04 LaTeX style files or Microsoft
    Word Style files tailored for IJCNLP-04. The files and a
    description of the format are available in the submission site.


    Note that full paper submissions are restricted to 8 pages.

    Note also that as reviewing will be blind, the paper should not
    include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore,
    self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We
    previously showed (Kim, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead,
    use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Kim, 1991)
    ...". Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are
    subject to be rejected without review.


    All papers must be submitted electronically according to the
    instructions in the submission site. The papers must be
    submitted no later than 12 p.m. Japan Standard Time November 15,
    2003. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed
    (Note that we no longer require early registration for papers.)

    Please consult the submission site in which instructions for
    electronic submission are provided. Questions regarding the
    submission process should be directed to
