 MAL'99

Multi-lingual Information Processing and Asian Language processing 

 Beijing, China, November 5, 1999

 -- 2nd 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 presented.

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
 - industrial application of Asian language processing and 
 multi-lingual information handling
 - multi-lingual indexing and keyword extraction
 - data and information structure of Asian languages
 - multi-lingualism in broadcasting and public affairs
 - computer-based language teaching
 - localization of language products
 - machine translation 
 - cross-lingual information retrieval

The workshop review and acceptance will be based on a two-page
extended summary (2000 words or less). The summary must be accompanied
by its title and author information including full names, affiliations
of all authors and the postal mailing address and email of the
corresponding author. "Software demonstration" is also very much
encouraged.

** The format of the camera ready paper is just like a format of
NLPRS99 regular papers in http://korterm.kaist.ac.kr/nlprs99 and we
also accept the presentation material (just like powerpoint file)
because of the short period of paper writing. **

Submit by email to 'mal99korterm.kaist.ac.kr'
