Meeting Description:

Workshop on Asian Language Resources. Post-Conference Workshop to be
held after The 1st International Joint Conference on Natural Language
Processing (IJCNLP-04) March 22-24, 2004 

First Call for Paper:

The 4th Workshop on Asian Language Resources (ALR-04) is a workshop
affiliated to IJC-NLP-04, the 1st International Joint Conference on
Natural Language Processing organized by Asia Federation of Natural
Language Processing (AFNLP)

Main Conference: The 1st International Joint Conference on Natural
Language Processing (IJCNLP-04) March 22-24, 2004 Main Conference Web
site: http://www.cipsc.org.cn/IJCNLP-04/

Post Conference Workshop: Asian Language Resources (ALR-04), March 25,
2004 Venue: Sanya City, Hainan Island, CHINA

Purpose and Topics:
Language resources play an important role as corpus-based, stochastic,
and learning approaches are introduced to natural language processing
research. Many research units put great efforts on developing corpora
for their particular purpose, and some even focus on compiling various
kinds of language resources.

Asia, the land of language variation, are suffering from the shortage
of sharing the resource and cross language problem solving
experience. There are several reports referring to the success of
constructing and using corpora in many dimensions. But however, there
are few efforts in establishing common formats or frameworks for
handling these languages. The re-organizing the existing resources and
finding for the guideline in corpus development become significant
issue in the current research.

The 4th workshop on Asian Language Resources will be held with the
following purposes:
- To investigate and discuss the problems related to the construction,
dissemination and NLP research based on Asian Language Resources
- To establish the collaborative effort on Asian language resources
construction, management, accessibility, distribution, and sharing
- To launch the Asian Language Resources roadmap
- To introduce the status of Asian language resources to researchers
in other regions

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Text corpora
* Machine-readable dictionaries
* Lexicons
* Ontology
* Grammars
* Exchange and annotation schemata
* Infrastructure for constructing and sharing language resources
* Exchange formats
* Best practices for creating and disseminating language resources
* Metadata for resource classification and discovery
* Strategies and priorities for EU-US and Asian cooperation
* Standards for language resources (lexicons, corpora, ontologies,
etc.)
* Lexical standards and multi-linguality
* Standards for content management
* Standards and applications
* Standards and evaluation

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: December 12, 2003
Notification of acceptance: January 10, 2004
Camera ready papers due: January 24, 2004
Workshop date: March 25, 2004 (Thursday)
