CONTEXT

The 3rd International Workshop on Controlled Language Applications (CLAW)

in conjunction with the ANLP (Applied Natural Language Processing)/NACLA
(North American Computational Linguistics Association) in Seattle,

CLAW98 http://www.lti.cs.cmu.edu/CLAW98/


TOPICS OF INTEREST

Of interest are submissions on all topics relating to the design,
implementation and application of controlled languages, including but not
limited to: human communication protocols; controlled text authoring;
conformance checking systems; controlled language authoring aids; machine
translation; memory-based translation authoring and translation; issues in
Controlled Language design; industrial experience and evolving
requirements; quality and usability evaluations of controlled language.

On the research front, we are grappling with issues like standardization,
design, and evaluation of controlled language systems. On implementation
issues, we are particularly interested in studies regarding author
productivity and document usability. The workshop will give equal emphasis
to the academic, corporate and industrial perspectives, while bringing
together researchers, developers, users, and potential users of controlled
language systems from around the world.


WORKSHOP FORMAT

The two-day workshop will feature invited speakers, paper presentations,
poster sessions, panel discussions, and system demonstrations. More
