Call Deadline: 06-Jan-2006

Meeting Description:

Knowledge of the behavior of words and text in other languages has recently been used to help solving tasks in a first language. Knowledge transfer across languages has also taken advantage of resources already built for resource-rich languages like English.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: applications that exploit parallel corpora, the induction of knowledge for resource-poor languages based on resource-rich languages, the use of other languages to solve taks in a first language, the use of MT techniques for knowledge induction, identifying and using cognate words between languages, building and enriching wordnets by knowledge transfer, exploiting multi-language wordnets for NLP applications, etc. Demos of systems are encouraged.
