 Special Issue: "Information Retrieval on Oriental Languages"


 The International Journal on Computer Processing of Oriental Languages
(CPOL) is devoted to the publication of original theoretical and applied
research work in oriental language computing. In particular, this special
issue focuses on the field of "Information Retrieval on Oriental

 The increasing volume of information available globally through the
World-Wide-Web places high demands on the information search engines in
terms of both speed and effectiveness. As a result, much research interest
in Information Retrieval (IR) has been spurred in recent years in the
direction of performance and/or effectiveness enhancement, e.g. in the
areas of indexing, NLP, etc. Although the latest IR researches in English,
and in other Western languages, are widely and timely publicized, the same
for Oriental Languages (OL) is rare. For this reason, this special issue
is dedicated to reporting the state-of-the-art and/or state-of-the-
practice R&D efforts in IR technology for Oriental languages (IR-OL).
Original papers in all areas of research in this field, including, but not
limited to, the following are invited:

* Natural Language Processing for IR-OL

* Automatic Information Extraction

* Multilingual and Cross Language Text Retrieval

* Automatic Text Categorization

* Automatic Text Summarization (Abstraction)

* Structural and Conceptual Indexing

* Dictionary Management

* Query Interface

* Intelligent Agent Technology

* Information Filtering

* Resource Discovery

* Logic based IR Framework

* Applications in IR-OL

* Benchmarking


 Original papers which are not submitted to, under reviewed by and
published or to be published in other journals or conferences in any areas of
IR-OL are invited to this special issue for possible publication. The 
publication language is ENGLISH and electronic submission is welcome. Authors
should send FOUR copies of their paper to one of the following co-editors
by January 2, 1998:

 Call for Communications

The Journal "Traitement Automatique des Langues" will publish a
special issue on multilingual processing:

- ---

Multilingual processing presents special challenges for Natural
Language Processing. Most NLP research and applications concentrate on
one language only and rarely deal with either low-level problems
(multiple codesets, localization vs. internationalization, linguistic
variants) or higher-level problems (organization of multilingual
lexicons and grammars). This special issue will recognize the
importance of adequate low-level processing and multilingual software
organization, describe multilingual applications, and present
approaches to the structuration and development of multilingual
lexicons and grammars.

Topics (non limitative)
- ----

 - multilingual text processing
 - localization and internationalization
 - multilingual information retrieval and extraction
 - multilingual MT systems
 - multilingual text generation
 - multilingual WWW

 - multilingual dictionaries and terminological databases
 - multilingual ontologies and thesaurii
 - multilingual grammars and parsers

- ----

Papers (30 pages max in double space, Helvetica 12) are accepted in
RTF, Latex or MIF formats. Latex style is downloadable from Papers can
also be submitted in French.

Papers should be submitted to (e-mail preferred):
