Linguistic Sub-field: Computational Linguistics 
Call Deadline: 31-Jul-2003

Meeting Description:

Gesellschaft fuer Sprachwissenschaft (DGfS, the German Linguistic
Society). The theme of the Meeting is ''Linguistics in Classroom''.

			 February 25-27, 2004
			 Mainz, Germany

			First Call for Papers

	 Computational Linguistics and E-learning:
	 How much linguistics is required for CALL?

The significant increase of computers in schools calls for an
increased development and integration of NLP-based educational
applications. While basic spell checking is now available for most
word processing programs and basic speech processing and recognition
techniques are almost standardly available as part of educational
applications (e.g., accent training, conversational practice), other
areas of computational linguistic competence have not as yet been
integrated as part of the toolkit.

This workshop focuses on the possible integration of state-of-the-art
methods in computational linguistics, comprising among other topics:

o use of statistical natural language processing and corpora

o state-of-the-art speech technology

o integration of large scale grammars for error detection and grammar
 checking

o adaptation of machine translation techniques (e.g., translation
 memory, partial translation, formulation of an interlingua)

o information retrieval methods for a tailoring of user-specific
 vocabulary acquisition needs

o reuse of NLP-based generators for the automatic generation of
 exercise paradigms and self-checking

The workshop is part of the 26th Annual Meeting of the Deutsche
Gesellschaft f�r Sprachwissenschaft (DGfS, the German Linguistic
Society). The theme of the Meeting is ''Linguistics in Classroom''.

Abstracts are solicited for 30 minute talks (25 minutes talk, 5
minutes discussion).

Format: 1 page (A4) in pdf or ps (pdf is strongly encouraged, 11 pt
	 minimum). The abstract should be anonymous (for review
	purposes).

	 As part of your e-mail submission you should also include the
	 following in your accompanying message:

	 Name of Author(s)
	 E-mail Address(es)
	 Organizational Affiliation
	 Title of Abstract

Address for submission:
	 tiborlinguistics.ruhr-uni-bochum.de (Tibor Kiss, Organizer)

Deadline: July 31, 2003

Note that the DGfS Conference also includes a forum for demos. If you
would like to schedule a demo in addition to your talk, please submit
a demo proposal to Miriam Butt (muttccl.umist.ac.uk) by the 15th of
November, 2003.
