 Call for Papers

	Workshop on Morphological and Phonological Learning
 
	 Philadelphia, PA

 Sixth Meeting of the
 ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Phonology
 in cooperation with
 ACL Special Interest Group in Natural Language Learning



The Workshop on Morphological and Phonological Learning will be held
July 11 2002, immediately after the ACL-02 meetings at the University
of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, USA.

The workshop web site, with further information, is
http://morph.ldc.upenn.edu/maxwell/MorphologyLearning.html.

Topics
- ----

* Tools to help a native speaker or linguist visualize and
 describe the morphology and/or phonology of a language

* Tools for (semi-)automated discovery of morphology and/or
 phonology

* Databases and annotation tools designed for morphological
 or phonological information, particularly as these relate
 to learning

* Resources for learning (taggers, seed grammars and
 lexicons, partially annotated text, bilingual text, etc.)

* Linguistic (knowledge-based) approaches vs. empirical
 approaches; hybrid methodologies

* Evaluation/comparison of morphology learning technologies

* Adapting and reusing grammars and lexicons among related
 languages

* Application of learned morphologies and phonologies
 (proofreading, machine translation, linguistic research,
 documentation of endangered languages, speech recognition)

* Theoretical results on learnability or representation


Schedule
- ------

* Submission Deadline: 5 April 2002

* Notification: 25 April 2002

* Camera-ready Copy Due: 21 May 2002

* Workshop: 11 July 2002

Message 2: extended deadline Semitic Languages W/S

WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT
FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
**DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 28th February**

Computational Approaches to Semitic Languages

ACL-2002
University of Pennsylvania
Thursday 11 July, 2002

This workshop is a sequel to the workshop on Computational Approaches
to Semitic Languages that was held at COLING98 in Montreal. Since that
time, there have been various other workshops, but these have mostly
turned out to be either rather applications-oriented, or rather
language specific, or both. Whilst not neglecting applications, the
present workshop aims to attract submissions that contribute
significantly to theoretical insights concerning computational
frameworks underlying the processing of Semitic languages in
general. Morphology and/or phonology would seem to be promising areas
of investigation in this sense. An effort will also be made to
highlight submissions that concern a representative set of languages.

Areas of interest include (but are not limited to): 

- Orthographic Representation 
- Morphological/Phonological Models 
- Speech Applications 
- Syntax, Parsing and Generation 
- Semantics 
- Acquisition of Language Resources 
- Corpora 
- Use of Machine Learning Techniques 
- Multilingual/Mixed Language Applications 
- Information Retrieval and Extraction
