ACM TALIP Special Issue on RITE: CFP
Dear NTCIR-9 RITE participants,
Thank you for your participation at NTCIR-9 RITE (Recognizing Inference in TExt) task.
ACM TALIP (Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing) is planning on a Special Issue on RITE for NTCIR-9.We would like to invite the RITE participants to submit a journal paper to Special Issue of ACM TALIP on the NTCIR-9 RITE by **substantially** expanding your work which you presented at the NTCIR-9 Workshop Meeting. For example, you may want to update/redo your systems, reevaluate them, compare with your previous results, and analyze them with scientific discussions. Your paper should not be just an explanation of your systems.
ACM regulation requires a submitted journal paper to have at least 25% new content when compared to a previously published version of the paper in a conference or workshop. So the papers appearing in NTCIR-9 workshop will need to be expanded by at least 25%. A good paper length to aim for is minimum of 20 pages per paper with the page length based on TALIP style.In addition, according to the ACM policy, the journal article must involve at least one Asian language. The language requirement is already met, since the RITE task involves Asian languages.
The papers submitted will undergo a standard reviewing process. For detail, please visit:
Please note that this invitation does not guarantee that your paper will eventually be accepted.
