Subject: One-day Workshop/Interactive Searching in Foreign-Language Collections

Call for Participation

One-day Workshop on Interactive Searching in Foreign-Language Collections 
Human-Computer Interaction Lab, University of Maryland, College Park

The workshop will explore technology to allow users that know one
language to interactively search large collections of text (or speech)
that is expressed in another language. The workshop is open, and the
content will depend in part on the interests of the participants. We
are presently planning three sessions:

o State of the Art Presentations - what we know how to build, with demos.
o User Needs panel - what should we be building?
o Evaluation panel - how will we know if we did it right?

Presenters and panelists will be selected on the basis of 1-2 page
statements of interest submitted to the email address below by May 1,
2000. Registration will be limited to 25 participants, so interested
parties are encouraged to submit a statement of interest in advance
even if they don't desire to present.

Further details can be found at:

Organized by:
Douglas Oard (University of Maryland)
Alexander Hauptmann (Carnegie Mellon University) 
Chin-Yew Lin (USC Information Sciences Institute)
William Ogden (New Mexico State University)
