2005 AUSTRALASIAN LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOP (ALTW2005)

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia

10 - 11 December 2005
Submissions due: 15 September 2005

http://www.alta.asn.au/events/altw2005

Workshop contact email: workshop AT alta.asn.au

PURPOSE:

A two-day workshop on Natural Language Technology will be organised by the
Australasian Language Technology Association (ALTA). This event will be the
third annual installment of the workshop in its most-recent incarnation, and the
continuation of an annual workshop series that has existed under various guises
since the early 90s.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with a day of tutorials, also at the
University of Sydney, on 9 December, 2005.

The goals of the workshop are:

- to bring together the growing Language Technology (LT) community in Australia
and New Zealand and encourage interactions;
- to encourage interactions between this community and the international LT
community;
- to foster interaction between academic and industrial research;
- to encourage dissemination of research results;
- to provide a forum for the discussion of new and ongoing research and projects;
- to provide an opportunity for the broader artificial intelligence community to
become aware of local LT research; and, finally,
- to increase visibility of LT research in Australia, New Zealand and overseas.

An innovation in this year's Australasian Language Technology Workshop will be
the introduction of poster presentations in addition to the regular talks, in
order to encourage more interactive discussion of research-in-progress. In this
vein, we encourage submissions from students describing their thesis work and
any preliminary results. Note that both publication types will have the same
status in the proceedings.
