Special Issue: "Information Retrieval on Oriental Languages"


The International Journal on Computer Processing of Oriental Languages
(CPOL) is devoted to the publication of original theoretical and applied
research work in oriental language computing. In particular, this special
issue focuses on the field of "Information Retrieval on Oriental

The increasing volume of information available globally through the
World-Wide-Web places high demands on the information search engines in
terms of both speed and effectiveness. As a result, much research interest
in Information Retrieval (IR) has been spurred in recent years in the
direction of performance and/or effectiveness enhancement, e.g. in the
areas of indexing, NLP, etc. Although the latest IR researches in English,
and in other Western languages, are widely and timely publicized, the same
for Oriental Languages (OL) is rare. For this reason, this special issue
is dedicated to reporting the state-of-the-art and/or state-of-the-
practice R&D efforts in IR technology for Oriental languages (IR-OL). Ori-
ginal papers in all areas of research in this field, including, but not
limited to, the following are invited:

* Natural Language Processing for IR-OL

* Automatic Information Extraction

* Multilingual and Cross Language Text Retrieval

* Automatic Text Categorization

* Automatic Text Summarization (Abstraction)

* Structural and Conceptual Indexing

* Dictionary Management

* Query Interface

* Intelligent Agent Technology

* Information Filtering

* Resource Discovery

* Logic based IR Framework

* Applications in IR-OL

* Benchmarking


Original papers which are not submitted to, under reviewed by and pub-
lished or to be published in other journals or conferences in any areas of
IR-OL are invited to this special issue for possible publication. The pub-
lication language is ENGLISH and electronic submission is welcome. Authors
should send FOUR copies of their paper to one of the following co-editors
by January 2, 1998:

With apologies for duplication and cross-posting, may I ask sister and fellow humanists to distribute the following as appropriate...

Call for Papers

Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Research Conference // Faculty Conference on Interdisciplinary Research in Teaching Drury College (Springfield, Missouri) - Feb. 6-7, 1998

Deadline for submissions: Nov. 14, 1997 Deadline for hotel reservations at reduced conference rate: January 21, 1998

** Undergraduate conference ** Submissions from all disciplines and programs are welcome. We seek papers which make a claim regarding an important issues (ethical, political, religious, etc.), and support that claim through argument and research drawn from more than one discipline. The undergraduate conference seeks to evoke a broad conversation among generally-educated undergraduates - by requiring that the central claims in each paper engage a topic which does not require specialized and/or disciplinary expertise (though supporting research may be specialized, i.e., undertaken within the student's major and/or minor areas of study). In this way, the conference will highlight the value of liberal arts education as a general education, one that prepares students for life-long challenges and learning, in conjunction with their professional preparation and careers. We thereby hope to encourage a generally-shared, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary conversation among conference participants regarding important topics and questions, and thereby to encourage further interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in the liberal arts and pre/professional programs at the undergraduate level.

** faculty conference ** Submissions from all disciplines and programs are welcome. We seek papers which describe and critique faculty efforts to incorporate research in the undergraduate humanities - especially as those efforts focus on the intersection between liberal arts and pre/professional education. The goal of this parallel conference is to encourage faculty to develop and implement new approaches to incorporating interdisciplinary research in their teaching.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by a team of students and faculty from Drury and participating institutions. Submissions accepted for presentation will be available on the Conference Web site at least three weeks in advance of the conference, in order to allow all participants time to review Conference presentations well in advance of the actual conference itself:

Multi-media presentations are encouraged. Papers will also be reproduced in a Conference Proceedings

Our web site provides additional information on the conference: example submissions and presentations, requests for peer- reviewers, submission guidelines and deadlines, and hospitality arrangements:

Call for Communications

The Journal "Traitement Automatique des Langues" will publish a special issue on multilingual processing:

Theme -----

Multilingual processing presents special challenges for Natural Language Processing. Most NLP research and applications concentrate on one language only and rarely deal with either low-level problems (multiple codesets, localization vs. internationalization, linguistic variants) or higher-level problems (organization of multilingual lexicons and grammars). This special issue will recognize the importance of adequate low-level processing and multilingual software organization, describe multilingual applications, and present approaches to the structuration and development of multilingual lexicons and grammars.

Topics (non limitative) ------

- multilingual text processing - localization and internationalization - multilingual information retrieval and extraction - multilingual MT systems - multilingual text generation - multilingual WWW

- multilingual dictionaries and terminological databases - multilingual ontologies and thesaurii - multilingual grammars and parsers

Format ------

Papers (30 pages max in double space, Helvetica 12) are accepted in RTF, Latex or MIF formats. Latex style is downloadable from http://ticotico.linguist.jussieu.fr/~atala/tal/normes.html. Papers can also be submitted in French.

Papers should be submitted to (e-mail preferred):

CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS http://www.cogs.susx.ac.uk/ecai98/workshopscall.html

The ECAI-98 Programme Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The workshops will be held on 24-25 August 1998, immediately prior to the start of the main conference.

IMPORTANT DATES ------------------------------------------- 1 Nov 1997 Deadline for proposals 1 Dec 1997 Notification of acceptance 15 Dec 1997 Deadline for workshop summaries 5 Jan 1998 Publication of ECAI-98 workshop programme 15 Jun 1998 Camera-ready workshop notes and other information 24-25 Aug 1998 Workshops at ECAI-98

ECAI workshops

Gathered in an informal atmosphere, workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss selected technical topics, fostering the active exchange of ideas among researchers and practitioners. Members from all segments of the AI community are invited to submit their proposals for review.

To encourage interaction, the workshops will be kept small, preferably under 30 participants and certainly under 40. Attendance should be limited to active participants only. Workshops are intended to be genuinely interactive events and not mini-conferences. Thus, although the format of workshop presentations are to be determined by their organizers, ample time should be allotted for general discussion. Workshops can vary in length, but most will last a full day. Attendees at workshops must also register for the main ECAI-98 conference.

As a new feature in ECAI-98, a special series of sessions will be reserved in the main ECAI-98 conference programme for 15 minute presentations of the main workshop issues by each workshop chair. A booklet summarising the main features of each workshop is also planned.

How to propose a workshop

Proposals for workshops should be two to three pages in length and should contain:

+ A brief technical description of the specific technical issues that the workshop will address + The reasons why the workshop is of interest this time. + The names, postal address, phone and fax numbers and email addresses of the Workshop Organising Committee, which should consist of at least three people knowledgeable in the field but not all at the same institution. + The name of one member of the Workshop Organising Committee who is designated the contact person. + A list of previously-organized related workshops by any of the Workshop Organising Committee, although previous experience with similar workshops is not required. This is to help the Workshop Coordinator putting the workshop in context. + If possible, a list of potential attendees in case the proposal of the workshop being accepted. + A schedule for organising the workshop and a preliminary agenda + A summary of the intended workshop Call for Participation, showing how the organisers will encourage a workshop, rather than a mini-conference, atmosphere. + A list of audio-visual or technical requirements and any special room requirements.

Proposers are encouraged to send their draft proposal to the potential participants for comments before submission.

Submission procedure

Proposals should be submitted electronically (in ascii, UNIX compatible postscript or rtf) to the ECAI-98 Workshop Coordinator, Lluis Godo, at the following address:

The ECAI-98 Organising Committeee will be responsible for:

+ Providing publicity for the workshop series as a whole. + Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop. + In conjunction with the workshop organisers, determining the workshop date and time. + Setting the rate for participation and dealing with registration of participants. + Duplicating working notes and distributing them to the participants.

ECCAI encourages the production of publications based on the workshops, but the ECCAI and ECAI-98 names cannot be used on such publications without prior permission being given.

In case of any disagreement over procedures or arrangements, the ECAI-98 Organising Committee Chair will have final authority. The ECAI-98 Organising Committee reserves the right to cancel any workshop if deadlines are missed, or if the number of registered attendees is too low to support the costs related to organising and running the workshop.
