Linguistic Sub-field: Computational Linguistics 
Call Deadline: 29-Feb-2004 

Meeting Description:

Since 1995, the NLDB conference aims at bringing together researcher,
industrials and potential users interested in various application of
Natural Language in the Database and Information Systems field. The
integration of databases and natural language has been an utopia for
many years. However, progress has been made and this is now an
established field thanks to developments in Natural Language and
technologies that made the storage and manipulation of large
electronic dictionaries possible. As Information Systems are now
evolving into the communication area, the term databases should be
considered in the broader sense of information and communication
systems. The use of Natural Language in Software Engineering has
contributed to both improving the development process from the
viewpoints of developers (improve the process of conceptual modelling,
validation, etc) and the usability of applications by users (natural
language query interfaces, semantic webs, etc). 

Topics:

Natural Language for Web Services
(Semantic information retrieval, Semantic Web, Semi-structured models
and associated languages, Web usage, content and structure mining for
discovering semantics, Concept taxonomies and web mining, Learning
taxonomies and ontologies from the web, Information extraction with
machine learning, Document classification and indexation)

Natural Language in Conceptual Modelling 
(Analysis of natural language descriptions, Requirement engineering,
Terminological ontologies, Paraphrasing, Dynamic modelling,
Verification, consistency checking, Metadata harvesting)

Natural Language Interfaces for Data Base Querying/Retrieval
(Natural languages interfaces for database querying, Verification of
database queries by paraphrasing, Semantic analysis for information
retrieval, NL interaction with databases)

Natural Language-Based Integration of Systems
(Linguistic aspects of view integration, Linguistic aspects of data
warehouses, Natural language queries to multi-databases systems, Data
integration and data cleansing, Ontology driven integration, Ontology
management)

Large Scale on-line Resources
(Electronic dictionaries, Question-answer corpora, Informal
ontologies, Linguistic databases, Digital libraries)

Application of Computational Linguistics in Information Systems
(Multilingual information systems, NLP in requirements engineering,
NLP in knowledge management, Ontology-driven NLP, Semiotics and
fundamentals)

Management of Textual Databases
(Text classification, Information extraction and detection, Text
mining for creating metadata, Document management, Hypertext and
Hyperbases)
