                             CALL FOR PAPERS

             The second Chinese Language Processing Workshop

             Sponsored by SIGLEX, SIGDAT and SIGPARSE.

                             October 2000

             Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

                         In conjunction with ACL-2000

    Growing interest in Chinese Language Processing is leading to the development
    of resources such as annotated corpora and automatic segmenters, part-of-speech
    taggers and parsers. The first Asia ACL provides an ideal opportunity to bring
    together influential researchers from Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and
    Beijing, as well as Chinese language researchers in the rest of the world, to
    discuss issues that are specific to the processing of Chinese. A critical tool
    for developing Chinese language processing tools is the availability of
    annotated corpora. The greater the consensus we have around guidelines for
    corpus annotation of part-of-speech tags, syntactic bracketing and other areas,
    the more useful this corpora will be.

    We welcome submissions that address the following topics on Chinese
    language processing:
         . word segmentation
         . POS tagging
         . phrase identification
         . parsing
         . grammar development
         . lexicon acquisition
         . corpus development

    We invite workshop participants to take advantage of two bracketed corpora:

        . The first one, Chinese Penn Treebank, was developed at University of
          Pennsylvania, USA. It includes 100-thousand words from Xinhua News.
          The corpus will be released via LDC at UPenn in one or two weeks.
          For more information and announcement of the release, please check the
          website "http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/ctb/" after June 4th, 2000.

        . The second one, developed by CKIP, Academia Sinica in Taiwan, contains
          more than 30,000 sentences. A trial version of 1,000 sentences is now
          available for download by the public at
          The release of the complete treebank is being reviewed by Academia
          Preliminary arrangements have been made for the treebank to be licensed
          through ROCLING. Please check their website
          (http://rocling.iis.sinica.edu.tw/ROCLING) for announcement.

       The workshop will be held either on Oct 1 or Oct 2. For latest update
    of the workshop (including the instruction for paper registration)
    and the release of the Chinese Penn Treebank, please
    check "http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/ctb/". If you have any questions concerning
    the workshop or the Treebank, please email us at chinese@linc.cis.upenn.edu.

    To all future members and friends of the Association for Southeast European
    Anthropology (InASEA)
            Invitation and Call for Papers

    Dear colleagues,

    On December 10 - 12, 1999, an initiative group consisting of Milena
    Benovska, Glenn Bowman, Christian Giordano, Deema Kaneff, Karl Kaser,
    Vintila Mihailescu, Karin Norman, and Klaus Roth convened in Bucharest and
    founded the International Association for Southeast European Anthropology
    (InASEA). It succeeds the Association for Balkan Anthropology (ABA).

    The founding committee kindly invites you to participate in the first
    general assembly and conference of InASEA in Sofia and to present a paper.
    The broad topic of the conference is

            The Anthropology of Southeast Europe - Ten Years After.
            Socio-Cultural Aspects of Transformation

    The conference will be held on Sept. 14-17, 2000, at the Bulgarian Academy
    of Sciences in Sofia. The organs of the association will be elected at the
    general assembly of members. The language of the general assembly of
    members will be English, while the languages of the conference are English,
    French, and German.

    The conference shall focus (1) on the cultural changes themselves and (2)
    on the disciplines studying them. It will therefore discuss the following
    general topics:
    - the study of the socio-cultural consequences of the transformation
    processes in SEE, particularly the transformation of (socialist) everyday
    - phenomena of contemporary (post-socialist) everyday culture and popular
    culture, etc.
    - the change of paradigm in the study of ethnicity and ethnic groups, as
    well as
    - the status and the role of the cultural sciences (ethnology, cultural and
    social anthropology, folklore, ethnography, historical anthropology) in
    Southeast Europe,
    - the process of transformation (in subject matter, methods, theories,
    approaches) which these disciplines are undergoing in research and teaching
    in order to overcome the legacy of the past and to develop into a modern
    ethnology and/or social anthropology.

    The S=FCdosteuropa-Gesellschaft has granted financial support; further
    applications for funds are pending. Accommodation and travel expenses
    (train, bus) of participants from AL, BiH, BG, HR, MK, RO and YU can
    probably be paid for.=20
