SCALING OF NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING:
COMPLEXITY, ALGORITHMS AND ARCHITECTURES

SPECIAL ISSUE OF THE TAL JOURNAL 2005

Submission Deadline: 09/05/2005

DESCRIPTION:
------------

Current
considerations of how NLP systems will be applied suggest new challenges
that require both theoretical innovations as well as systems that can be
put to real use. The advent of the Web and its huge resources requires
that the field of NLP be increasingly sensitive to the importance of
scalability.
Unfortunately, there are but few algorithmic solutions that are
sufficiently efficient in both space and time to be able to handle
problems that arise from the explosion of the gigabyte-sized data now
available on the Web.
Today, as NLP moves more and more towards Natural Language Engineering,
it is appropriate to determine the theoretical limits of the problems
which this new discipline raises, as well as the factors that relate to
system effectiveness, namely complexity and algorithms.

LIST OF POSSIBLE SUBJECTS:
--------------------------

The following list is non-exhaustive:

- Advanced data structures (suffix trees, suffix arrays, etc).
- Advanced algorithms (search, sorting algorithms, dynamic programming,
etc).
- Sequence Algorithms (search, short patterns, repetitions, etc).
- Indexing (search, repetitions, hashing, etc).
- Alignment (linear space, sub-quadratic, etc).
- Automata (finite-state machines, suffix automata, transducers, etc).
- Compression (information theory, fast decompression, compression
transducers, etc).
- Graphs (large graph algorithms, Web graphs, etc).
- Dynamic programming.
- Tabulation.
- Distributed and Parallel systems.
- Grid Computing.
- Complexity (space/time, complexity of parallel algorithms, etc.).
- Theoretical Foundations.

We intend to receive submissions including these techniques:

- Linguistic Resources Processing (Corpora, Non-linearly Structured
Corpora),
- Lexicon/Thesaurus/Ontology-based NLP,
- Information Retrieval,
- Question-Answering Systems,
- Topic Tracking,
- Information Extraction,
- Text Mining,
- Integrated Systems,
- Collaborative Systems.

FORMAT:
-------

Submitted papers must be no longer than 25 pages, and must be in PDF
format. Style sheets are available online at
http://tal.e-revues.com/appel.jsp

LANGUAGE:

Papers may be written in French or English. English submissions are
accepted only for non French-speaking authors.
