                                  ACL/EACL 2001 Workshop


                                     6-7 July 2001
                                    Toulouse, France


    Natural language generation (NLG) constitutes the production of meaningful
    texts in natural languages from some underlying non-linguistic
    representation of information. Accomplishing this goal may be envisioned
    for a number of different purposes, including standardized and/or
    multi-lingual reports, summaries, machine translation, dialog applications,
    and embedding in multi-media and hypertext environments. Consequently, the
    automated production of language is associated with a large number of
    highly diverse tasks whose appropriate orchestration in high quality poses
    a variety of theoretical and practical problems. Relevant issues include
    content selection, text organization, the production of referring
    expressions, aggregation, lexicalization, and surface realization, as well
    as coordination with other media.

    This workshop is part of a bi-annual series of workshops about natural
    language generation that runs since 1987. Previous European workshops have
    been held at Royaumont, Edinburgh, Judenstein, Pisa, Leiden, Duisburg, and
    Toulouse. The goal of the workshop is to be an informal meeting which
    facilitates the dissemination of knowledge and expertise in the field. The
    workshop will focus on the following topics:

         * Search methods for NLG (in content planning and realization)

           There seems to be a substantial discrepancy between
           application-oriented systems and principled approaches to NLG.
           Accomodating a standard pipeline architecture with suitable heuristic
           preferences to the intended functionality of a system stands in
           contrast to several principled approaches to searching which have been
           tried out so far. These include blackboard architectures, constraint
           propagation and, more recently genetic algorithms and statistical
           techniques. A comparison of these methods in terms of their potential
           and limitations is likely to improve understanding about this issue.
           Gained insights could prove fruitful for building applications in a
           more general and, thus, better reusable way, especially in large-scale
           applications such as summarization and machine translation.

         * Differences in information organization between source and
           presentation specifications (and methods to bridge between these)

           Whether the generation task is to verbally express contents of some
           knowledge base or to produce multi-lingual presentations from
           language-neutral or similar representations, there are strong
           similarities in building the target representations: In the
           overwhelming number of cases, the ordering and embedding of elements
           in the source representation is reflected by the ordering and
           embedding of their corresponding realizations at the surface. Often,
           this reflection is systematic, many times even simple. But a few cases
           prove complex and involve a major restructuring of the surface
           structure when compared to the source structure. A major emphasis of
           this topic is on collecting such complex cases, identifying
           commonalities between them and discussing restructuring techniques.

    Workshop on 'Modular Programming applied to Natural Language Processing'

    The effectiveness of modular programming in designing software has long
    been acknowledged by the computer science community. However, the
    computational linguistics community preferred to develop components in
    isolation, without integrating existing modules into proposed systems.
    There are several reasons for this. Firstly, integration of different
    modules is not a trivial task, requiring a lot of time. Usually the
    major problem is the loss of information caused when the output of one
    module has to be converted to the input of another. Most research
    projects do not have the time or resources to concentrate on a real
    modular architecture, using trade offs (such as manually created inputs)
    instead. Secondly, most of the work in the research community is
    directed towards proposing and demonstrating new hypotheses, and not
    building robust and fully automatic applications. In many cases
    preprocessing steps, which produce the input data for the tested method,
    are considered trivial and accurate, and as a result replaced with hand
    produced data. Therefore, when a researcher needs a certain module for a
    method, s/he prefers to produce the output of that program manually,
    either because s/he is not aware of an existing implementation which
    performs the required task, or because the work involved in setting it
    up is greater than that involved in manually producing the output
    (usually because the implementation was developed and tested on a
    different platform).

    However, this situation has started to change rapidly. More and more
    researchers have appreciated the complexity of NLP tasks and the need to
    use modular programming. A quick look at the systems presented at the
    latest MUC indicated that they are complex systems which reuse previous
    research. Systems like GATE have been designed in order to help with the
    integration of different modules in a system. In addition, the research
    community is increasingly requiring the development of fully automatic

    This workshop will provide a forum for discussion between researchers
    involved in the development of automatic NLP systems and leading names
    in the field. We would like to invite all researchers to submit their
    original and unpublished work to the workshop. Topics of interest
    include but are not limited to:
    - modular architectures for NLP
    - black/glass box evaluation measures
    - research on the influence of substitution and alternate combinations
    of modules on overall system performance
    - reusability
    - integration of resources (including conversion formats between
    - platforms for developing modular applications
    - repositories

    Workshop on Evaluation for Language and Dialogue Systems
    ACL/EACL 2001
    Toulouse, France
    July 6-7, 2001


    The aim of this two day workshop is to identify and to synthesize current
    needs for language-technology evaluation.

    The first day of the workshop will focus on one of the most challenging
    current issues in language engineering: the evaluation of dialogue systems
    and models. The second day will extend the discussion to address the problem
    of evaluation in language engineering more broadly and on more theoretical

    The space of possible dialogues is enormous, even for limited domains like
    travel information servers. The generalization of evaluation methodologies
    across different application domains and languages is an open problem.
    Review of published evaluations of dialogue models and systems suggests that
    usability techniques are the standard method. Dialogue-based system are
    often evaluated in terms of standard, objective usability metrics, such as
    task-completion time and number of user actions. In the past, researchers
    have proposed and debated theory-based methods for modifying and testing the
    underlying dialogue model, but the most widely used method of evaluation is
    usability testing, although more precise and empirical methods for
    evaluating the effectiveness of dialogue models have been proposed. For
    task-based interaction, typical measures of effectiveness are
    time-to-completion and task outcome, but the evaluation should focus on user
    satisfaction rather than on arbitrary effectiveness measurements.Indeed, the
    problems faced in current approaches to measurement of effectiveness
    dialogue models and systems include:

    Direct measures are unhelpful because efficient performance on the nominal
    task may not represent the most effective interaction
    Indirect measures usually rely on judgment and are vulnerable to weak
    relationships between the inputs and outputs
    Subjective measures are unreliable and domain-specific
    For its first day, the workshop organizers solicit papers on these issues,
    with particular emphasis on methods that go beyond usability testing to
    address the underlying dialogue model. Representative questions to be
    addressed include:

        o How do we deal with the combinatorial explosion
          of dialogue states?
        o How can satisfaction be measured with respect to
          underlying dialogue models?
        o Are there useful direct measures of dialogue properties
          that do not depend on task efficiency?
        o What is the role of agent-based simulation in
          evaluation of dialogue models?

    Of course, the problems faced in evaluating dialogue and system models are
    found in other domains of language engineering, even for non-interactive
    processes such as part-of-speech tagging, parsing, semantic disambiguation,
    information extration, speech transcription, and audio document indexing. So
    the issue of evaluation can be viewed at a more generic level, raising
    fundamental, theoretical questions such as:

        o What are the interest and benefits of evaluation
          for language engineering?
        o Do we really need these specific methodologies,
          since a form of evaluation sould always be present
          in any scientific investigation?
        o If evaluation is needed in language engineering, is
          it the case for all domains?
        o What form should it take? Technology evaluation
          (task-oriented in laboratory environment) or
          field/user Evaluation (complete systems in real-life

    We have seen before that the the evaluation of dialogue models is still
    unsolved, but for domains where metrics already exists, are they
    satisfactory and sufficient? How can we take into account or abstract from
    the subjective factor introduced by human operators in the process?
    Do similarity measures and standards offer appropriate answers to this
    problem? Most of the efforts focus on evaluating process, but what about the
    issue of language resources evaluation?

    For its second day of work, the workshop organizers solicit papers on these
    issues, with the intent to address the problem of evaluation both from a
    broader perspective (including novel applications domains for evaluation,
    new metrics for known tasks and resource evaluation) and a more theoretical
    point of view (including formal theory of evaluation and infrastructural
    needs of language engineering).

    We invite you to participate in the cast01 symposium on intersections of
    artistic, cultural, technological and scientific issues of:

    Living in Mixed Realities

    What does it mean to live, play and work in a world shaped and perceived

    The development of complex communication spaces, life environments and
    economic models is an interplay of technical, social, and artistic
    forces - Mixed Realities of Art, Science and Technology.

    The design of a Mixed Reality Architecture, which connects processes in
    virtual space to the social environments and cultural practices of real
    places, presents challenges to technologists, scientists and artists
    alike. In such an architecture the basic design elements are networked
    structures for new forms of collaborative work and knowledge discovery,

                      Siena, Italy, June 18-20, 2001
                    (Submission deadline: March 15, 2001)


    Traditional inference tools (such as theorem provers and model
    builders) are reaching new levels of sophistication and are now widely
    and easily available. A wide variety of new tools (statistical and
    probabilistic methods, ideas from the machine learning community) are
    likely to be increasingly applied in computational semantics. Most
    importantly of all, computational semantics seems to have reached the
    stage where the exploration and development of inference is one of its
    most pressing tasks - and there's a lot of interesting new work which
    takes inferential issues seriously.

    The Workshop on Inference in Computational Semantics (ICoS) intends to
    bring researchers from areas such as Computational Linguistics,
    Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, and Logic together, in
    order to discuss approaches and applications of Inference in natural
    language semantics.

                                    Co-organized by:

                                     ELSNET NAPLUS


         The objective of the workshop is threefold.
           * First of all we want to bring together people who are actively
             involved in Arabic language and/or speech processing in a mono- or
             multilingual context, and give them an opportunity to report on
             completed and ongoing work as well as on the availability of
             products and core technologies. This should enable the
             participants to develop a common view on where we stand with
             respect to Arabic language processing.
           * Secondly, we want to identify problems of common interest, and
             possible mechanisms to move towards solutions, such as sharing of
             tools and resources, moving towards standards, sharing and
             dissemination of information and expertise, adoption of current
             best practices, setting up joint projects and technology transfer
             mechanisms, etc.
           * Third, we would like to enhance collaboration between the Arabic
             NLP community and the NLP community at large.

         The workshop program will include the following components:
           * Introduction
           * Overview talks
           * Scientific papers
           * Short presentations of projects, core technologies and products
           * A panel session and/or a round table discussion
           * Conclusions

                                 ACL/EACL Workshop on
                 Sharing Tools and Resources for Research and Education

                                Co-organised by ELSNET
                           Toulouse, Saturday 7th July 2001


         At a workshop at ACL 2000 in Hong Kong dedicated to Infrastructures
         for Global Collaboration there was an agreement between the main
         professional organisations in NLP and Speech (ACL and ISCA), and
         ELSNET, and the other meeting participants, that it would be useful to
         aim at a broadly supported, joint repository or catalogue for tools
         and materials for the language and speech communities.

         An ELSNET-sponsored workshop on educational issues held at EACL99
         concluded that certain non-transient infrastructures needed to be
         instigated to raise the public perception of educational issues in
         NLP. It also concluded that a repository of shared materials,
         appropriately indexed for educational usage, would be a useful point
         of departure.

         This workshop will build on the consensus reached at these previous
         workshops. There will be two clear foci: one upon instruments for
         sharing tools and resources in general that addresses practical
         problems, and the other upon the technological and infrastructural
         issues surrounding the educational uses of repositories.

    ACL/EACL 2001 Conference
    Toulouse, France
    July 6-7, 2001

    Human language technologies promise solutions to challenges in human
    computer interaction, information access, and knowledge management.
    Advances in technology areas such as indexing, retrieval, transcription,
    extraction, translation, and summarization offer new capabilities for
    learning, playing and conducting business. This includes enhanced
    awareness, creation and dissemination of enterprise expertise and know-how.

    This workshop aims to bring together the community of computational
    linguists working in a range of areas (e.g., speech and language
    processing, translation, summarization, multimedia presentation, content
    extraction, dialog tracking) both to report advances in human language
    technology, their application to knowledge management and to establish a
    road map for the Human Language Technologies for the next decade. The road
    map will comprise an analysis of the present situation, a vision of where
    we want to be in ten years from now, and a number of intermediate
    milestones that would help in setting intermediate goals and in measuring
    our progress towards our goals.

                         CALL FOR PAPERS

          Fifth Computational Natural Language Learning Workshop
                    Toulouse, France, July 6-7, 2001



    CoNLL is the yearly workshop organized by SIGNLL, the Association for
    Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Natural Language
    Learning (http://www.aclweb.org/signll/). Previous CoNLL meetings were
    held in Madrid (1997), Sydney (1998), Bergen (1999) and Lisbon
    (2000). The 2001 event will be held as a two-days workshop at the 39th
    Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL),
    July 6-11, 2001 in Toulouse, France.

    This year, a special theme will be the focus of the workshop:

          Interaction and Automation in Language Learning Resources

    Apart from this special theme, the workshop will accept contributions
    about language learning topics, including, but not limited to:

       - Computational models of human language acquisition
       - Computational models of the origins and evolution of language
       - Machine learning methods applied to natural language processing
         tasks (speech processing, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics,
         discourse processing, language engineering applications)
       - Symbolic learning methods (Rule Induction and Decision Tree
         Learning, Lazy Learning, Inductive Logic Programming, Analytical
         Learning, Transformation-based Error-driven Learning)
       - Biologically-inspired methods (Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computing)
       - Statistical methods (Bayesian Learning, HMM, maximum entropy, SNoW,
         Support Vector Machines)
       - Reinforcement Learning
       - Active learning, ensemble methods, meta-learning
       - Computational Learning Theory analyses of language learning
       - Empirical and theoretical comparisons of language learning methods
       - Models of induction and analogy in Linguistics

    Call For Papers WITH SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO March 23, 2001:

                              3rd International Workshop on:


                at the 10th IEEE WETICE Workshops on Enabling Technologies:
                     Infrastructures for Collaborative Enterprises

                                      June 20-22
             Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts


    The workshop addresses the question of how Web techniques can be used
    to achieve or to improve collaboration within or between organizations,
    and which coordination mechanisms could be used in such an architecture.

    This problem area addresses both technical and organizational issues.
    The involved organizations are typically enterprises in different
    spheres of power such that it is not reasonable to require a common
    structure, or to align the structure for a certain collaboration purpose.
    But how can a system enable the participants for flexible and effective

    Papers up to six pages (including figures, tables and references) can be
    submitted. Papers should follow the IEEE format, which is single spaced,
    two columns, 10 pt Times/Roman font. Detailed format instructions
    can be found at http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm
