Meeting Description:

Third Workshop on Building and Using Comparable Corpora
Applications of Parallel and Comparable Corpora in Natural Language Engineering
and the Humanities

We are inviting submissions for the third edition of the Workshop on Building
and Using Comparable Corpora. Comparable corpora are collections of documents
that are comparable in content and form in various degrees and dimensions. This
definition includes many types of parallel and non-parallel multilingual
corpora, but also sets of monolingual corpora that are used for comparative
purposes.

By bringing together researchers from several disciplines, including natural
language engineering and the humanities, the workshop aims at showing the full
breadth of research on comparable corpora.

1st Call for Papers

LREC 2010 post-conference workshop, 22 May 2010
Mediterranean Conference Centre, La Valletta, Malta
Deadline for submissions: February 19, 2010
http://www.fb06.uni-mainz.de/lk/bucc2010

We are inviting submissions for the third edition of the Workshop on Building
and Using Comparable Corpora. Comparable corpora are collections of documents
that are comparable in content and form in various degrees and dimensions. This
definition includes many types of parallel and non-parallel multilingual
corpora, but also sets of monolingual corpora that are used for comparative
purposes.

By bringing together researchers from several disciplines, including natural
language engineering and the humanities, the workshop aims at showing the full
breadth of research on comparable corpora.

We solicit contributions on a range of topics, including but not limited to:

Building Comparable Corpora
- Automatic and semi-automatic methods
- Methods to mine parallel and non-parallel corpora from the Web
- Tools and criteria to evaluate the comparability of corpora
- Parallel vs non-parallel corpora, monolingual corpora
- Rare and minority languages
- Comparisons across language families
- Multi-media/multi-modal comparable corpora

Applications of Comparable Corpora
- Human translations
- Language learning
- Cross-language information retrieval & document categorization
- Bilingual projections
- (Statistical) machine translation
- Writing assistance

Mining from Comparable Corpora
- Extraction of parallel segments or paraphrases from comparable corpora
- Extraction of bilingual and multilingual translations of single words and
multi-word expressions, proper names, named entities, etc.

Submissions
Papers of no more than 10 pages and following the LREC conference formatting
details should be submitted as a PDF file via the START conference manager at
https://www.softconf.com/lrec2010/BUCC2010/
Papers will be blind reviewed by at least two members of the Programme
Committee. Therefore, authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the
paper. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.

This year, when submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to
participate in a survey on the use of language resources by providing essential
information about the resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies,
standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in
the paper or are a new result of the research.
For further information on this new iniative, please refer to
http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2010/?LREC2010-Map-of-Language-Resources.
