21st gathering.

The conference serves as an international forum for linguists, computer
scientists, information engineers and system users with interests in the
computer processing and understanding of Oriental languages. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to

- Cross- and multilingual information processing
- Text input methods
- Document analysis and character recognition
- Natural language processing
- Machine translation
- Information retrieval and extraction
- Question Answering
- Text Summarization
- Multilingual computing
- Speech recognition and synthesis
- Language resources and evaluation
- Web-based applications
- E-commerce, education and entertainment

High quality papers presenting innovative ideas, design principles, theoretical
analysis, implementation techniques, programming concepts, and experimental
results are solicited.
