    COLING has been the most important international conference on Computational
    Linguistics and Natural Language Processing for nearly 40 years.
    The 19th International Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING
    2002) will be held in the Howard International House and Academia Sinica,
    Taipei, Taiwan, from August 24 to September 1, 2002.

    The biennial conference COLING 2002 this year will provide both
    pre-conference tutorials and post-conference workshops, in addition to the
    main conference. There will be four major tutorial issues divided into
    six 3-hour units during COLING 2002.

    The first major issue will be Computational Linguistics and Chinese Language
    Processing. This tutorial will focus on Chinese language processing topics
    including Intelligent Character Encoding (Ching-Chun Hsieh, Academia Sinica),
    Treebanking and Parsing (Keh-jiann Chen, Academia Sinica), and Corpus-Based
    Methods in Chinese Morphology (Richard Sproat, AT&T Labs). The whole scope
    will cover most of the interesting and special characteristics that make
    Chinese language processing a different and difficult task. It will be
    co-sponsored with the ACL-SIGHAN. People interested in Chinese language
    processing issues should not miss the two tutorial units and the SigHan
    Workshop (http://www.sighan.org/swclp/).

    The second major issue focuses on NLP and Bio-Informatics. People
    nowadays are becoming more and more interested in knowing how the
    languages of humans differ from the languages of God. NLP researchers
    and biologists feel strongly that the two communities can work together
    to make things different. Our biologists, Toshihisa Takagi, Takako Takai
    (University of Tokyo), Ken-ichiro Fukuda (National Institute of
    Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, AIST, Tokyo, JAPAN) will
    discuss some theoretical issues in Bio-Informatics and how NLP techniques
    can help extracting and migrating biological data from the huge amount
    of historical archives and databases to speedup biology study. Our
    computational linguists, Jun-Ichi Tsujii (University of Tokyo and UMIST,
    ICCL permanent member), and Aravind Joshi (University of Pennsylvania,
    ICCL permanent member), on the other hand, will talk about the application
    of Information Extraction techniques in Bio-informatics and some applications
    of NLP Techniques for Modeling Biological Sequences in this tutorial.
    You could expect that such interaction between the biologists and
    computational linguists will bring to our communities many brand new ideas.

    While simple information retrieval and information extraction techniques
    are useful for many language processing tasks, including mining biological
    rules as discussed in the above major issue, such techniques combined
    in an intuitive way may not really provide us with good answers for
    many critical questions. In the third major tutorial issue, our QA experts,
    Professors Sanda M. Harabagiu (University of Texas) and Dan Moldovan
    (University of Texas) will tell us how an Open-Domain Textual Question
    Answering system could be constructed to serve well. Professor Harabagiu's
    systems had proved to be outstanding in the community. Therefore, you
    should really attend this course if you want more secrete behind the scenes.

    The forth major tutorial issue is Probabilistic Computational
    Psycholinguistics. This issue is important because every sentence that
    we processed has its psycholinguistics and cognitive process behind it.
    The more we know such psycholinguistic models the more we can process
    the sentences better. Professor Dan Jurafsky (University of Colorado)
    will lead you to the world of computational psycholinguistics and
    cognitive modeling in the sentence, lexical and discourse levels
    through this course.
