 Computational Linguistics for Speech and Handwriting Recognition


 A one-day workshop organised by L.J. Evett & T.G. Rose
 as part of the AISB 1994 Workshop Series

 12th April 1994
 Leeds University, England

Reliable speech and handwriting recognition cannot be achieved through
pattern recognition techniques alone. Natural language input is notoriously
ambiguous, and the application of higher level knowledge is necessary to
cope with this and other difficulties.

Previous attempts to implement linguistic knowledge have often employed a
logic based approach, drawing on a lexicon of symbolic information.
However, recent technological advances have allowed the development of large
text corpora from which probabilistic linguistic data may be derived.
Consequently, there has been a renewal of interest in techniques based upon
such statistical information.

This workshop aims to compare these two approaches, and evaluate their
present (and potential) contribution to speech and handwriting recognition.
The workshop will also consider related language processing problems, such as
parsing, word class formation, part of speech tagging, sense disambiguation,
 discourse analysis, and the development of on-line lexical resources.

Please submit an extended abstract (max. 500 words) to the address below.
Email submissions are strongly encouraged. Authors of accepted abstracts will
be invited to write a full paper for inclusion in the proceedings.

 4th Conference on Applied Natural Language Processing
 Stuttgart, Germany
 October 13-15, 1994

 sponsored by
 Association for Computational Linguistics

 This conference will follow the theme and style of previous
ACL Applied conferences. Specific areas of interest and other details
will be provided in subsequent announcements.

 Authors should submit, by 2 May 1994, a) six copies of a
 full-length paper (min 9, max 15 double-spaced pages, minimum font
 size 12, exclusive of references); and b) 16 copies of a 20-30 line
 abstract. A paper accepted for presentation at the meeting cannot
 be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly
 available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to
 other conferences must reflect this fact on the title page.
 Papers arriving after the deadline will be returned unopened. FAX
 papers will not be reviewed; however, electronic submissions will be
 allowed using the same guidelines as the 1994 ACL conference.

 Papers should be sent to the Program Chair:

 Paul Jacobs (ANLP-94) (215) 898-0332
 Institute for Research in Cognitive Science
 3401 Walnut St., Suite 400C, Rm. 420
 Philadelphia, PA 19104-6228

 Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by 5 July
 1994. Full-length versions of accepted papers, prepared according
 to instructions, must be received, along with a signed copyright
 release statement, by 22 August 1994.


 The conference will have facilities for a variety of special
 events, including tutorials and workshops before the conference.
