 14TH TWENTE WORKSHOP ON LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY
 LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY IN MULTIMEDIA INFORMATION RETRIEVAL
 December 7-8 1998, University of Twente, The Netherlands
 PROGRAM AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

On 7 and 8 December 1998, the fourteenth international Twente Workshop on
Language Technology (TWLT14) will take place at the University of Twente,
Enschede, The Netherlands. The topic of this workshop will be

 "Language Technology in Multimedia Information Retrieval"

TWLT14 will focus on the increasingly important role of human language
technology in the indexing and accessing of written and spoken documents,
video material and/or images, and on the role of language technology for
cross-language retrieval and information extraction. The workshop will
address the role of language and speech processing both in terms of
existing approaches and implementations, in terms of theoretical
foundations, and/or emerging directions of research.
