The Third Midwest Computational Linguistics Colloquium

Call for Papers

The Language and Speech Program at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is pleased to announce the third meeting of the Midwest Computational Linguistics Colloquium (MCLC). This colloquium offers a less formal forum for computational linguistics researchers to get together and present ideas and work. It is intended to be primarily for researchers from the Midwest region, but applications from all regions are welcome.

The MCLC meeting is hosted by the Departments of Computer Science and Linguistics at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign at its home, the Siebel Center for Computer Science.

Submission Guidelines

  • Interested researchers should submit a 2-page extended abstract (including references) using the ACL style files.
  • The abstract should be anonymous.
  • Abstracts should be submitted using the online upload form no later than April 14, 2006. The abstract should be attached as a .pdf file.


Each abstract will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The major criteria of evaluation will be the originality, soundness, and clarity of the research idea presented and the relevance of the topic to the colloquium.


Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited (but not required) to submit a 4-8 page full paper using the ACL style files for the proceedings, which will be distributed in a CD. Copyright of a submitted paper remains with the author(s).


Registration will be free, but there will be a small fee for the CD proceedings.
