31st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

22-26 June 1993
Ohio State University
Columbus, Ohio, USA

TOPICS OF INTEREST: Papers are invited on substantial, original,
and unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics,
including, but not limited to, pragmatics, discourse, semantics,
syntax, and the lexicon; phonetics, phonology, and morphology;
interpreting and generating spoken and written language; linguistic,
mathematical, and psychological models of language; language-oriented
information retrieval; corpus-based language modelling; machine
translation and translation aids; natural language interfaces and
dialogue systems; message and narrative understanding systems; and
theoretical and applications papers of every kind.

REQUIREMENTS: Papers should describe unique work; they should
emphasize completed work rather than intended work; and they should
indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results.
A paper accepted for presentation at the ACL Meeting cannot be
presented at another conference. Self-references which reveal the
authors' identity (e.g., ``We previously showed [Smith, 1991] . . .'')
should be avoided as far as possible, since reviewing will be

FORMAT FOR SUBMISSION: Authors should submit four copies of
preliminary versions of their papers, not to exceed 3200 words
(exclusive of references). To facilitate blind reviewing, two title
pages are required. The first (one copy only, unattached) should
include the title, the name(s) of the author(s), complete addresses,
a short (5 line) summary, and a specification of the topic area.
The second (4 copies, heading the copies of the paper) should omit
author names and addresses. Submissions that do not conform to this
format will not be reviewed. As well, authors are strongly urged
to email the title page (in directly readable ASCII form, with
author information). Send to:

STUDENT SESSIONS: Following the ACL-91/92 successes, there will again
be special Student Sessions organized by a committee of ACL graduate
student members. ACL student members are invited to submit short
papers describing innovative work in progress in any of the topics
