1ST CALL FOR PAPERS (9 January, 2006)
Resource-Scarce Language Engineering
31 July - 4 August, 2006
organized as part of the
European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information
ESSLLI 2006 http://esslli2006.lcc.uma.es/
31 July - 11 August, 2006 in Málaga
Workshop Organizer:
   Edward Garrett <egarrett_at_emich.edu>
Workshop Purpose:
   This workshop will bring together scientists from academia and
   industry, as well as advanced PhD students, to present and discuss
   research on the theoretical and practical challenges of engineering
   resource-scarce languages. We intend to provide an inclusive forum
   for exchanging ideas on a broad range of topics in areas represented
   by ESSLLI, including basic text processing, speech analysis, and
   machine translation.
Workshop Topics:
   Seen through one lens, "resource-scarce languages" are languages
   for which few digital resources exist; and thus, languages whose
   computerization poses unique challenges. Through another lens,
   "resource-scarce languages" are languages with limited financial,
   political, and legal resources, languages that lack the clout or
   global importance of the world's major languages.
   In spite of these challenges, resource-scarce languages and
   their speakers are not being ignored. Individuals, governments,
   and companies alike are busy developing technologies and tools
   to support such languages. They are driven by a variety of
   motivations - from the desire among academics and community
   activists to preserve or revitalize endangered or threatened
   languages - to the desire by governments to promote minority
   languages - to the need by other governments to detect hostile
   chatter in diverse tongues - to the strategy of some companies to
   enhance their stature in emerging markets such as China and
   South America.
   Recognizing the above trend, this workshop will serve as a forum
   for the discussion of academic and industrial research on resource-
   scarce language engineering. Possible topics include but are not
   limited to:
     - multilingual text processing and the Unicode Standard
     - machine translation and speech recognition with minimal
       training data
     - rapid portability of existing language technologies to new languages
     - the use of multilingual resources for monolingual annotation
     - the annotation of new language data on the basis of knowledge
       of related languages
     - coping with data of inconsistent or uneven quality or coverage
   In addition, there will be a shared task on a specific resource-
   scarce language - Tibetan (details to be announced separately).

Formal Ontologies for Communicating Agents (FOCA)
July 31 - August 4, 2006
organized as part of the European Summer School on Logic, Language and
ESSLLI 2006 http://esslli2006.lcc.uma.es/
July 31 - August 11, 2006 in Malaga

In recent years lots of efforts have been devoted to formal studies of
human and artificial agent communication. Research advancements have
been achieved along three main lines: (i) agent's internal states and
dynamics, (ii) social interaction and conventional communicative
patterns, (iii) semantics-pragmatics interface - especially  in the
dialogue context (i.e. the interplay between the semantic content of
messages and the communicative acts themselves). There is a recent
trend of studies trying to integrate these approaches in many ways. On
the other hand, formal ontology has been consecrated as a good solution
for comparing and integrating information and thus its application to
this specific domain is very promising . More precisely, an ontological
analysis of the fundamental ingredients of interaction and
communication will make explicit the hidden ontological assumptions
underlying all these proposals.
Ontology has also proven to be a very powerful means to address issues
related to the exchange of meaningful communication across autonomous
entities, which can organize and use information heterogeneously.
The purpose of the workshop is therefore to gather contributions that
(i) take seriously into account the ontological aspects of
communication and interaction and (ii) use formal ontologies for
achieving a better semantic coordination between interacting and
communicating agents.
We encourage contributions concerning the two main areas listed below
with a particular attention to  explore the interplay between
ontological analysis and its applications in practical cases.
* Ontological aspects of interaction and communication
          - Ontological analysis of interaction and communication
          - Studies on the structure and coherence of interaction
          - Logical models for communicative acts
          - Primitives of interaction and communication
          - Formal semantics of dialogue
*Semantic coordination through formal ontologies
          - Dialogue semantics and formal ontology
          - Dynamic ontology sharing
          - Ontological primitives for meaning negotiation, ontological
alignment and semantic interoperability
          - Ontology evolution through communication
          - Concrete problems and experiences in terminological
disambiguation and integration

Bringing Text Alive:
The Future of Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Electronic Publication
The Text Creation Partnership (TCP) project was founded at the University of
Michigan in 1999 to reinvent scholarship by creating fully searchable texts
of thousands of titles printed across three hundred years and two continents
of English and American history.
TCP includes texts selected from three commercially produced page image
collections, Early English Books Online (EEBO), available from ProQuest
Information and Learning, Evans Early American Imprints (Evans), available
from Newsbank-Readex and Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO),
available from Thompson-Gale.  Additionally, TCP's production has expanded
to include centers at Oxford University, the University of Toronto, and the
National Library of Wales.  TCP cooperates directly with over a dozen
international scholarly projects devoted to subjects as wide ranging as
historical linguistics, literary studies, bibliographic studies, and
metadata integration.  Scholars and students alike, in these disciplines and
many others have found often make the claim that resources like EEBO, Evans,
ECCO, and the TCP have revolutionized their work and by making primary
sources widely available, will "bring literature alive" (Thomas Pack,
E-Content, Dec. 1999).  As the TCP project reaches the halfway mark of its
original goals, it seems a good time to investigate how it brings literature
in all disciplines to life in this exciting conference.
The conference invites papers from scholars, students (graduate and
undergraduate), librarians, publishers, or other interested people in all
disciplines to investigate topics such as (but not limited to):
.       Changes in the landscape of scholarship and pedagogy introduced by
electronic resources like EEBO, Evans, ECCO, and the TCP
.       Examples of teaching with such resources
.       Examples of doing research with such resources
.       Use of related resources like ESTC or Early American Newspapers
.       The changing nature of scholarly communication
.       Electronic publication
.       Digital library development.
The conference will be held September 14 - 17, 2006 in Ann Arbor, MI
Deadline for paper submissions is May 15, 2006
