VisLR: Visualization as added value in the development, use and evaluation of LRs
Saturday, 31st of May 2014 (morning session)
Call for papers
VisLR aims at bringing together people from visual analytics and computational linguistics to discuss the potentials and the challenges related to visualizing language data and in particular language resources. Linguistics has a long tradition of visually representing language patterns, from tree representations in syntax to spectograms in phonetics. However, the large amounts and ever-increasing complexity of today's resources call for new ways of visually encoding a multitude of abstract information on language in order to assure and enhance the quality and usability of these language resources.
We invite submissions on research demonstrating the development, use and evaluation of visualization techniqes for language resources. This includes work applying existing visualization techniques to language resources as well as research on new visualization techniques that are specifically targeted to the needs of language resources. Particular concern is given to papers aiming at the interoperability of the described visualization techniques.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Papers must describe original (completed or in progress) and unpublished work. We invite short papers (4 pages) and long papers (8 pages). When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their reuse, replicability of experiments, including evaluation ones, etc.
We use a blind reviewing process, in which the author names are not revealed to the committee of reviewers. Authors are requested to prepare their manuscripts in a manner which disguises their identities, affiliation status, etc. This means (1) omitting names and affiliations from the title page; (2) refraining from excessive self-citation in the bibliography; and (3) omitting explicit references the authors' previous work in the text body.
Please indicate possible conflicts of interest on the submission page. Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author's institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties).
Papers should be submitted in PDF format via the workshop START page: https://www.softconf.com/lrec2014/VisLR/
