the Committee cannot replace it with that of another colleague. Your
absence from the conference program has effectively prevented another
colleague from making a presentation.

were a proposal for a paper. The form is available here:

        for Spanish and Portuguese

Workshop web site: http://ccc.inaoep.mx/~hrl_04/
IBERAMIA web site: http://www.inaoep.mx/iberamia2004/

The organizing committee of the Workshop on Linguistic Tools and Resources
for Spanish and Portuguese (http://ccc.inaoep.mx/~hrl_04/) invites
researchers and students related to this research area to participate with
proposals and works in this event.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum in order to improve the
cooperation between the iberoamerican groups interested in linguistic
technology, particularly for Spanish and Portuguese languages. Within the
goals of the event are the creation of joint protocols for development,
evaluation, comparison and interchange of linguistic tools and resources
for these languages.
Interest subjects turn around the design, building and use of linguistic
resources (LR) for Spanish and Portuguese, as well as tools for their
recollection and analysis. Following is a brief and not restricted list of
the related topics:

* Guidelines, standards, specifications, models and best practices for LR
* Methods, tools, procedures for the acquisition, creation, management,
access, distribution, use of LR
* Monolingual and multilingual LR for Spanish and Portuguese
* Multimodal and multimedia LR. Integration of various modalities in LR
(speech, vision, language)
* Exploitation of LR in different types of applications (information
extraction, information retrieval, vocal and multisensorial interfaces,
translation, summarisation, www services, etc.)
