Call Deadline: 15-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 
 Computational Linguistics for eLearning''

 International Workshop in conjunction with 

 the 20th International Conference on Computational Linguistics
 COLING 2004

 Geneva, August 28th, 2004

The workshop presents and dicusses papers which are in the
intersection of Computational Linguistics / NLP and eLearning

eLearning for Computational Linguistics

This topic should be viewed as a follow-up of the 1999 EACL workshop
Computer and Internet Supported Education in Language and Speech
Technology}, the 2002 ACL workshop on Effective Tools and
Methodologies for Teaching NLP, and the LREC 2004 Workshop on Language
Resources: Integration and Development in eLearning and in Teaching
Computational Linguistics. It will give practioners in the field the
opportunity to share didactic experience of eTeaching CL, to identify
and to disseminate good practice models and resources and to share
novel approaches to eLearning in CL.

Computational Linguistics for eLearning

In this part of the workshop, we will address the role which language
technology plays in the development of intelligent platforms for
eLearning. One focus of this part of the Workshop will be the
contribution of NLP to the building of intelligent computer-aided
language learning (I-CALL) systems. This workshop, however will also
show that NLP can improve the performance of eLearning environments in
