3-3-7 (2012-11-13) International Conference on Asian Language Processing 2012 (IALP 2012),Hanoi, Vietnam


International Conference on Asian Language Processing 2012 (IALP 2012)
Hanoi, Vietnam, Nov 13-15, 2012
Paper Submission deadline: Jul 1,2012

The International Conference on Asian Language Processing (IALP) is a series
of conferences with unique focus on Asian Language Processing. The
conference aims to advance the science and technology of all the aspects of
Asian Language Processing by providing a forum for researchers in the
different fields of language study all over the world to meet. The first
meeting of the series was held in Singapore in 1986 and was called the
'International Conference on Chinese Computing (ICCC)' then. This meeting
initiated the study of Chinese and oriental languages processing in
Singapore and resulted in the formation of COLIPS in Singapore in 1988, as
well as the publication of the journal 'Communications of COLIPS' in 1991,
which is known as 'International Journal on Asian Language Processing'

Over the years, IALP has developed into one of important anaual events on
nature language processing in Asia. IALP 2008 was held in Chiang Mai
University, Thailand and the proceedings were indexed by ISTP/ISI. IALP 2009
was held in Singapore and was co-organized by COLIPS and IEEE Singapore
Computer Chapter. IALP 2010 was held in Harbin and was co-organized by
COLIPS and IEEE Singapore Computer Chapter, Chinese Information Processing
Society of China and Heilongjiang Institute of Technology (HIT). IALP 2011
was held in Penang, Malaisia and jointly organized by Chinese and Oriental
Languages Information Processing Society (COLIPS) of Singapore, IEEE
Singapore Computer Chapter, and Universiti Sains Malaysia. The proceedings
of IALP 2009,2010 and 2011 were published by CPS (Conference Publication
Services) and submitted for indexing in EI, ISTP/ISI and Current Contents on

This year, the International Conference on Asian Language Processing 2012
(IALP 2012) will be jointly organized by Chinese and Oriental Languages
Information Processing Society (COLIPS) of Singapore, IEEE Vietnam Computer
Chapter, and Hanoi University of Science and Technology (and MICA
Institute). The conference will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam on Nov 13-15,
2012. The 2012 edition (IALP 2012) will focus on under-resourced languages
studies. We will continue to work with CPS to publish the conference
proceesings. They will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library and
submitted for indexing in INSPEC, EI, ISTP/ISI and Current Contents on

Hanoi (Vietnamese: Hà Noi, 'River Interior') is the capital and
second-largest city of Vietnam. As the capital of Vietnam for almost a
thousand years. Hanoi hosts more cultural sites than any city in Vietnam,
including over 600 pagodas and temples.Hanoi is is the social, cultural and
economic center of the country.The Old Quarter, near Hoan Kiem lake, has the
original street layout and architecture of old Hanoi. At the beginning of
the 20th century the city consisted of only about 36 streets, most of which
are now part of the old quarter. Each street then had merchants and
households specialized in a particular trade, such as silk traders,
jewellery, etc. The street names nowadays still reflect these
specializations, although few of them remain exclusively in their original
commerce. The area is famous for its small artisans and merchants, including
many silk shops. Local cuisine specialties as well as several clubs and bars
can be found here also. A night market (near Ðong Xuân market) in the heart
of the district opens for business every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
evening with a variety of clothing, souvenirs and food.

We welcome you to Vietnam to experience the nature, history, and cultural in
one of best countries in South-East Asia.

Submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished
work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be
included. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical
strength, significance, relevance to the conference, and interest to the
attendees. Each submission will be reviewed by three program committee
members. Accepted papers will be presented in one of the oral sessions or
poster sessions as determined by the program committee.
As the reviewing will be blind, manuscripts must not include the authors'
names and affiliations. Authors should ensure that their identities are not
revealed in any way in the paper. Self-references that reveal the author's
identity, e.g., 'We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...', must be avoided.
Instead, use citations such as 'Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...'.
Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without

All submissions must be electronic and in Portable Document Format (PDF)
only. Paper submissions should follow the IEEE Proceedings' two-column
format without exceeding four (4) pages including references. We strongly
recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files
according to IEEE Proceedings' format. Submissions must conform to the
official style guidelines.

The official language of the conference is English. Papers submitted should
be written in English.

Papers may be submitted until July 1, 2012, in PDF format via the START
