PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS

Updated information: http://nilc.icmc.sc.usp.br/propor/

I. WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Former workshops on Automatic Processing of Written and Spoken
Portuguese Language (PROPOR) have taken place yearly, either in
Portugal or in Brazil. The last one was held in Portugal, September
1999. In Brazil, PROPOR is usually held along with SBIA, the Brazilian
AI Symposium. 

This year, PROPOR'2000 will take place along with SBIA'2000 and
IBERAMIA'2000, aiming at both putting together researchers interested
in the automatic processing of Portuguese and boosting linguistic
resources that can bring about conditions to solve diverse NLP
problems, in special those related to the Portuguese
language. Theoretical, methodological or practical NLP contributions
addressing the automatic processing of the Portuguese language, as
well as more general and language-independent contributions in the
Computational Linguistics field are welcome.

II. TOPICS

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
 Mono or multilingual text processing
 Speech processing
 Linguistic tools and resources to process Portuguese
 Machine translation
 Text Summarization
 Statistical approaches to NLP
 Corpora development and analysis
 Multimedia environments for the NLP of Portuguese
 Evaluation of NLP systems
 Writing tools

III. SUBMISSION DETAILS

The workshop committee invites full-length papers for technical
presentations and proposals for demonstrations of products or
software. Technical articles may address research results or work in
progress and different timetables for the workshop will be set
according to such tracks. Submission of products/software must
address the automatic processing of Portuguese.
