focus will be on interface phenomena in this domain. Comparative aspects across
Romance varieties will be addressed. We welcome papers from different
theoretical perspectives.

Abstracts should be anonymous and no longer than two pages, including references
and examples, with margins of at least 1 inch, font size 12, single-spaced.
Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint abstract

Message 2: Workshop on Text Mining and Applications
Date: 18-May-2007
From: José Lopes <gpldi.fct.unl.pt>
Subject: Workshop on Text Mining and Applications

Full Title: Workshop on Text Mining and Applications
Short Title: TeMA-2007

Date: 03-Dec-2007 - 07-Dec-2007
Location: Guimarães, Portugal
Contact Person: Joaquim Silva
Meeting Email: jfsdi.fct.unl.pt
Web Site: http://epia2007.appia.pt/

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 30-Jun-2007

Meeting Description:
TeMA-2007 will be held at the 13th Portuguese Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (EPIA 2007), in Guimarães, Portugal, 3-7 December 2007.

Pure symbolic methods for Language Processing alone are unable to address
human languages complexity. Text Mining and Machine Learning techniques
applied to text, raw or annotated, brought up new insights and completely
shifted the approaches to Human Language Technologies. Both approaches,
when duly integrated, bridge the gap between language theories and
effective use of languages, and enable important applications. Our aim,
with this workshop, is to bring together innovative contributions to fill
in this gap.
Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the issues identified
below. Papers will be blindly reviewed by three members of the Programme
Committee. Best papers will be published at Springer, in LNAI series. If
there are additional papers whose quality is sufficiently high for deserving to
be presented at TEMA'07, those other accepted papers will be published in the
workshop proceedings. More information is available at http://epia2007.appia.pt
