Call for Papers

We cordially invite you to participate in the 6th PROPOR - Workshop on
Computational Processing of the Portuguese Language - Written and
Spoken, to be held in the University of the Algarve, Faro, Portugal,
June 26-27, 2003.

This PROPOR Workshop follows previous workshops held in 1993 (Evora,
Portugal), 1996 (Curitiba, Brazil), 1998 (Porto Alegre, Brazil), 1999
(Evora, Portugal) and 2000 (Atibaia-SP, Brazil).

This edition will have as satellite-workshop the AVALON ' 2003 -
Workshop for Evaluation Campaigns for Portuguese, also to be held in
the University of the Algarve, Faro, Portugal, June 28, 2003.

Scope of the Workshop

We invite the scientific community to submit original and unpublished
research on aspects of Computational Processing of Portuguese,
including, but not limited to:

 Linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language
 Pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax and the lexicon
 Phonetics, phonology and morphology
 Terminology
 Understanding and generating spoken and written language
 Summarization and information extraction
 Natural language interfaces and dialogue systems
 Machine learning for natural language
 Speech production and perception
 Speech analysis, processing and feature estimation
 Speaker authentication
 Speech coding and transmission
 Multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids
 Tools and resources
 Evaluation
 Applications
 Education


We invite the scientific community to submit papers reporting original
and completed, rather than intended work on all fields of
Computational Processing of Portuguese. Wherever appropriate,
concrete evaluation results should be included. Preference will be
given to papers that may contribute in a significant way to the
development of the domain. Further details can be found on the
Workshop web-site.

We also invite people and institutions of NLP industries to
participate in the Workshop and to benefit from this forum where the
most recent applications can be presented.
