Call for Papers

The 33rd Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation (PACLIC 33) will be held in Hakodate, Japan on 13–15 September, 2019. The PACLIC 33 will be the latest installment of our long standing collaborative efforts among theoretical and computational linguists in the Pacific-Asia region for providing an opportunity to share their findings and interests in the formal and empirical study of languages. Paper submissions of original and unpublished research are invited on all aspects of both theoretical and computational linguistics. Papers exemplifying synergy of multi-disciplinary approaches on the construction of language resources and system development that would assist language learning are particularly encouraged. Topics include but are not limited to the following areas:

Information for authors

Submissions should describe substantial, original, and unpublished work written in readable and plain English and may not exceed 8 pages, excluding references and appendices. The authors’ names, affiliations and addresses must be anonymous for the initial submission. Accepted papers will be presented in either regular sessions or poster sessions as determined by the program committee.
