    in Natural Language Processing

    Call for paper:


                 IEEE Intelligent Systems:
                 Special Issue on Advances in Natural Language Processing



         Fabio Ciravegna University of Sheffield, UK
         Sanda Harabagiu , University of Texas at Dallas, USA

    The inherent complexity of processing human language imposes several
    challenging difficulties for the integration of the Natural Language
    Processing (NLP) technology in current systems.
    This special issue intends to present the state-of-the-art in
    Natural Language Technology when applied to either text or speech
    processing. We invite original and high quality submission reporting on
    NLP applications or describing implemented NLP systems either in
    isolation or as part of broader systems.

    Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

         Question answering
         Information Extraction
         Summarization and generation
         Machine translation

    In particular we welcome papers focusing on:
          Applications involving the use of NLP;
          Opportunities for the use of NLP;
          Challenges and requirements of current state-of-the-art Natural
          Language Processing techniques (e.g. portability, robustness,
                                     efficiency and effectiveness
    issues); Novel applications of NLP techniques.

    September 15, 2002: Deadline for submission.
    October 15, 2002: Notification of acceptance
    November 7, 2002: Deadline final versions.

    Format of Submission
