 Call for Participation

 2nd December 2002
 Canberra, Australia

Macquarie University's Centre for Language Technology cordially
invites you to this one-day workshop on Natural Language Processing to
be held in conjunction with the Australian AI conference (AI'02) in

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

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 following papers will be presented and discussed at the workshop:
