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:

Call for Communications: Special Issue on Multilingual Processing

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

Deadline for reception of submissions: January 27, 1998. --------

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 Articles (revised)

A Special Issue of Information Processing & Management on Information Retrieval with Asian Languages

Interest is growing in effective and efficient retrieval of relevant information from large unstructured databases. Research in information retrieval (IR) has expanded its scope widely with advances in related areas such as natural language processing, machine learning, and human-computer interactions. Especially with the explosion of information in the World Wide Web, the need for information retrieval and related functions has become ubiquitos regardless of languages and cultures. This special issue of Information Processing & Management, an international journal with a strong emphasis on information retrieval, will be devoted to research and development in information retrieval with Asian languages. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

- retrieval or routing of texts at variouls levels of granularity - cross-language text retrieval - automated text categorization - infomation extraction and filtering - automatic text summarization (including automatic abstracting) - use of machine readable dictionaries and/or thesauri - language- or task-specific user interfaces for IR-related systems - various natural language processing techqniques for IR-related tasks

Interested authors should submit five copies of their articles by January 31, 1998, to:

Prof. Sung H. Myaeng Dept. of Computer Science Chungnam National University Yusong-ku, Taejon 305-764 Korea

Phone: +82-42-821-5446 Fax: +82-42-822-9959 E-mail: shmyaeng@cs.chungnam.ac.kr http://irsun.chungnam.ac.kr

- The tentative publication date is October, 1998. - Only papers not publiched elsewhere will be considered for publication. However papers already presented at a conference or workshop are acceptable only if they are additionally updated, revised, or enlarged. - Length: The final article should be about 8-10 typeset pages (approximately 20-25 typed, double-spaced, pages). - Format: Double-spaced pages preferred, but the typeset style is acceptable.
