Call Deadline: 30-Apr-2004 

This is a session of the following conference: 20th International
Conference on Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:


This workshop focuses on the relation between Computational
Linguistics and eLearning. In two sessions, the role of eLearning in
the field of Computational Linguistics and the contribution of
language technology to the further development of eLearning
environments shall be discussed. 

eLearning for Computational Linguistics and Computational Linguistics

 International Workshop to be held in conjunction with COLING 2004

 Geneva, August 28th, 2004

 ************************************
 Extended Deadline: 30th of April
 ************************************

This workshop focuses on the relation between Computational
Linguistics and eLearning within two sessions.

1. eLearning for Computational Linguistics

With the SOCRATES thematic network project ''Advanced computing in the
Humanities'' the need for information technologies, and, in
particular, eLearning in the humanities, including CL, has been
identified. The survey which has been launched revealed the interest
in high-quality teaching material and (distance) courses. On the
occasion of a conference and a workshop, both held 1998 and 1999
resp., first results were presented in the form of project
notes. Furthermore, didactic issues which concern (distance) teaching
and learning of computational linguistics and language technology were
raised.

In the meanwhile, various projects have provided high-quality teaching
material and (distance) courses for various disciplines of
Computational Linguistics, like ELSNET and MiLCA.

This part of the workshop should give practioners in the field the
opportunity
* to share didactic experience of eTeaching CL,
* to identify and to disseminate good practice models and resources,
* to share novel approaches to eLearning in CL, and
* to discuss curricular issues.

2. Computational Linguistics for eLearning

In the context of computer-mediated distance learning, language
technology can help to enhance the accessibility of online teaching
material and the adaptivity of learning management systems.
* In the context of computer mediated communication, language
technology can be applied for, e.g, summarization of discussion
threads and support of discourse coherence in synchronous CMC
* In the context of accessibility and usability of online teaching
material, language technology can be applied for, e.g.,
- matching of semantic representations of learning modules on the one
hand and the prospective user's knowledge of the topic on the other
hand;
- facilitation of access to learning material by more flexible and
sophisticated search methods;
- improvement of retrieval by supplying metadata for learning objects
on a (semi)-automatic basis;
- adaptive components which adjust the system to particular users, e.g
adaptation of learning management systems for disabled persons, taking
into account their special needs.

With this part of the workshop, we want to further address the role
which language technology plays in the development of intelligent
platforms for eLearning. We want to particularly encourage submissions
by scholars and software developers who present implemented and
working eLearning systems in which language technology supplies a
crucial part of the implemented solution.

The entire workshop constitutes an informal forum for researchers and
teachers to discuss the various issues, to create networks of common
interests and to launch new initiatives in the area of eLearning.

We invite papers and project notes on the various topics concerned
with eLearning for CL and CL for eLearning.

Important Dates
Deadline for papers and project notes: 30 April 2004
Notification of acceptance: 15 May 2004
Deadline for a camera-ready copy of the paper: 15 June 2004
Workshop: 28 August 2004

Format for submission of papers
The length for full papers must be at most 8 pages including abstract,
references and notes. The length for project notes must be at most 4
pages maximum. We also inform potential authors that their
contributions will be published in the workshop proceedings within
COLING'04 and, therefore, the papers selected for publication will
have to adhere to COLING edition rules. More details about this will
be made available by COLING in due course, check
http://www.issco.unige.ch/coling2004/coling2004downloads.html or the
COLING homepage for details.

Submission procedure
Anonymous papers should be sent to: lotharsfs.uni-tuebingen.de. The
papershould be attached in PDF format accompanied by separate authors'
information. The heading on the email should read ''Coling Workshop
paper submission''. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be
sent to the originating email address.

Language
All papers must be written and presented in English

Workshop organization
For the workshop to take place, the COLING 2004 organizers require at
least 20 participants to register for the workshop. Speakers and
participants are therefore asked to register via the official COLING
2004 site as soon as possible.
