 Finite-State Language Resources and Language Processing

GUEST EDITORS: Ken Beesley, XRCE, France,
Lauri Karttunen, Parc Inc., USA, Eric
Laporte, University of Marne-la-Vallee, France, Kemal Oflazer, Sabanci University, Turkey,

The recent availability of sophisticated toolkits for developing
large-scale finite state systems has fostered the development of
manually-constructed finite-state language resources and applications
for many languages. As a follow-up to the recent Workshop on
Finite-State Methods in Natural Language Processing, FSMNLP 2003, held
during EACL 2003 in Budapest, we would like to solicit from the
workshop participants, as well as other researchers, full length
papers on the use of finite-state techniques for the development of
language processing resources and applications. We would especially
encourage submissions addressing novel issues and aspects of
lesser-studied languages.

Call for papers issued: 2 June 2003
Papers due: 3 October 2003
Notification to authors: 2 Feb 2004

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE For initial submissions only, authors should send
electronic copies (postscript, pdf, rtf, or doc) to the Guest Editors:
