 Last Call for Papers

 Workshop: 2nd December 2002
 Submissions due: 31st July 2002
 Canberra, Australia


A one-day workshop on Natural Language Processing will be held in
conjunction with the Australian AI conference (AI'02) in Canberra:

The goals of the workshop are:

 * to bring together the growing NLP community in Australia and
		 New Zealand;
 * to provide an opportunity for the broader artificial
 intelligence community to become aware of local NLP research;
 * to provide a forum for discussion of new research;
 * to foster interaction between academic and industrial research.

Our hope is to get as many Australasian NLPers together as possible to
encourage dialogue between those working on similar topics and between
areas with a - perhaps as yet untapped - potential to interact.

The workshop proceedings will be published with an ISBN number.


We invite the submission of papers on substantial, original, and
unpublished research on all aspects of natural language processing,
including, but not limited to:

 * speech understanding and generation;
 * phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and
 * interpreting and generating spoken and written language;
 * linguistic, mathematical, and psychological models of language;
 * language-oriented information extraction and retrieval;
 * corpus-based and statistical language modeling;
 * machine translation and translation aids;
 * natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
 * message and narrative understanding systems;
 * computational lexicography.

We welcome submissions on any topic that is of interest to the NLP
community, but we particularly encourage submissions that broaden the
scope of our community through the consideration of practical NLP
applications. We especially invite people from industry working on NLP
to send us their submissions and offer an opportunity to discuss and
demonstrate their latest applications in front of an informed
