Following the most recent NLDB conferences, the 16th International Conference on Applications of Natural Language to Information Systems (NLDB2011) is organizing a Doctoral Symposium. This is intended to encourage Ph.D. students who are carrying out research into aspects of Natural Language Processing and Management related to Information Systems.
The Doctoral Symposium will provide students in their early as well as advanced stages of their Ph.D. the opportunity to share and discuss their research proposals and direction under the guidance of a panel of leading academics in Computer Science and Information Systems, and to network with other doctoral students and researchers. Contributions are welcome in all topics covered by NLDB2011Submission Guidelines:
In order to attend the symposium, Ph.D. students should submit a paper describing their research proposal and direction of their on-going work. Submissions to this Doctoral Symposium should clearly address:
- The motivation behind the proposed research.
- A clear formulation of the research problem to be solved.
- An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, by briefly citing and describing any existing solutions.
- A proposed methodology and any preliminary ideas and results achieved so far.
- The contributions of the current proposal.
The paper should not exceed 6 pages in PDF or Postscript format (including references). The authors should follow the LNCS format and the manuscript should be submitted via the NLDB'11 web submission system. Accepted papers will be included in the NLDB 2011 proceedings, published in the LNCS-series at Springer Verlag.Important Dates:
