 ***CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT***


Dates: May 18th - 19th, 1994

Location: Chauncey Conference Center
 Educational Testing Service

Conference Purpose:


 Natural Language Processing Techniques have been found to be
 increasingly useful in the domains of assessment and education.
 The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers from
 both the NLP, and assessment and education communities and to
 share ideas about how NLP techniques can be implemented
 to aid in tasks for assessment and education. Speakers are being
 invited from industry and academia to discuss their research and
 applications
 of NLP in assessment and education. We anticipate that the conference
 will encourage on-going discussion between the NLP, and assessment and
 education communities.

 Topics:

 * NLP Techniques for Assessment of Natural Language Responses to Test Items
 * Computer-Aided Design in Education
 * Automatic Spelling Correction for Automated Scoring of Natural Language
 Responses
 * Intelligent Tutors

 The conference will be held at the Chauncey Conference Center on ETS'
