 NLPRS'99 Workshop 


Multi-lingual Information Processing and Asian Language processing 

 Beijing, China, November 5, 1999


 -- Call for Papers --

 Summary submission due : October 12

The recent information society has been evolved into the state of
multi-lingual communication and broadcasting. However, the theoretical
and empirical research and development has not been fully flourished
toward the customer-oriented product. The knowledge about
multi-lingual communication has not yet been fully discovered and
furthermore, the knowledge about Asian language processing is too weak
to understand the neighboring countries' languages even inside of the
Asian countries. Here, the each country's language processing has to
be introduced to other language users for their language resources,
experiences and theoretical achievements. Although the characteristics
among Asian languages are more similar than those of European
languages, the chance of this discussion has been very few.

This workshop will solicit papers from the academic sectors as well as
from the commercial sectors, in order to know what are achievements of
researchers and what are problems of information industry. Standardization 
efforts of markup languages are one of important issues for the
advanced intelligent language processing. Moreover, the test suites
for each language and information processing areas are invited to be

All submissions are welcomed in all area of NLP topics and 
the partial lists of topics are as follows but not limited to: 

 - characteristics of each language processing
 - standards of tag set for language resources and application
 - test suite of language processing, e.g., IR, MT, summarization

The workshop review and acceptance will be based on a two-page
