About these proceedings


CICLing 2006 ( was the 7th Annual Conference on Intelligent Text Processing and Computational Linguistics. The CICLing conferences are intended to provide a wide-scope forum for discussion of the internal art and craft of natural language processing research and the best practices in its applications. This volume contains the papers included in the main conference program (full papers) and selected papers from the poster session (short papers). Other poster session papers were included in a special issue of the journal Research on Computing Science; see informationonthisissue onthe website. Theprevious CICLing conferences since 2001 were also published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, vol. 2004, 2276, 2588, 2945, and 3406. The number of submissions to CICLing 2006 was higher than that of the previous conferences: 141 full papers and 35 short papers by 480 authors from 37 countries were submitted for evaluation, see Tables 1 and 2. Each submission was reviewed by at least two independent Program Committee members. This book contains revised versions of 43 full papers (presented orally at the conference) and 16 short papers (presented as posters) by 177 authors from 24 countries selected for inclusion in the conference program. The acceptance rate was 30.4% for full papers and 45.7% for short papers.
