 JOURNAL OF NATURAL LANGUAGE ENGINEERING


"Natural Language Engineering" is a new journal, to be launched by Cambridge
University Press in 1995. It is an international forum for the dissemination
of results concerning the theory and practice of applied natural language
processing. The focus is on publications addressing research and development
issues fundamental to engineering of natural language technologies. A principal
concern will be systems which can operate in realistic application
environments, in terms of their scale, robustness, feasibility, maintenability,
usability and system integration.

The editors are particularly anxious to respond to identified needs in the
research community. The field currently lacks an outlet dedicated to
communicating technology-oriented work. There is also a lack of easily
accessible reference materials discussing the impact of research in
computational linguistics, computer science, artificial intelligence, and
cognitive psychology on the task of engineering for practical natural language
processing applications.

Original articles are sought, addressing issues in all areas of linguistic
engineering; these include, but are not limited, to: adaptive systems; corpus
processing; delivery of assistance (e.g. help systems, explanation); dialogue
management; front ends to computational systems, both single modality and
multimodal; grammar and style checking; information management and access;
language teaching aids; lexicon acquisition and implementation; linguistic
knowledge bases (e.g. lexica, grammars, term banks); localising for
multilingual systems; machine translation; multimedia authoring and delivery
environments; performance evaluation; speech and natural language integration;
text analysis and content extraction; text generation; tools for natural
language processing. Articles may discuss separate technologies, complete
applications, system evaluations, and limitations of particular designs.

The review process is specifically designed for speedy publication.
