			CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

		 THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON
	 CONTROLLED LANGUAGE APPLICATIONS (CLAW98)

			 May 21-22 1998

CONTEXT

The 2nd International Workshop on Controlled Language Applications
will be held May 21-22 at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA,
USA. Since the first CLAW workshop, held at University of Leuven in
1996, there has been continued strong interest in the research and
development of controlled language applications. Initial industrial
development and deployment of Controlled English systems (AECMA,
Caterpillar's CTE) are now being followed by developments in other
languages.

On the research front, we are grappling with issues like
standardization, design, and evaluation of controlled language
systems. We are particularly interested in studies regarding author
productivity and document usability. The workshop will give equal
emphasis to the academic and industrial perspectives, while bringing
together researchers, developers, users, and potential users of
controlled language systems from around the world.


WORKSHOP FORMAT

The Language Technologies Institute at CMU (home of the Center for
Machine Translation) is pleased to sponsor CLAW '98. The two-day
workshop will feature paper presentations, panel discussions, and a
poster/demonstration session. Evolving information regarding the
workshop format and content can be found at the workshop web site.

Message 2: Call for Papers: Transcription

Date: Thu, 09 Apr 1998 11:05:31 -0400
From: Transcription 1998 <trans98cs.concordia.ca>
Subject: Call for Papers: Transcription



 ACL/COLING-98

 Workshop on

 PARTIALLY AUTOMATED TECHNIQUES FOR TRANSCRIBING
 NATURALLY OCCURRING, CONTINUOUS SPEECH

 August 16, 1998 (following ACL/COLING-98)
 University of Montreal, Montreal (Quebec, Canada)


 CALL FOR PAPERS



DESCRIPTION
- ---------

The development of robust systems for speech analysis and synthesis
depends crucially on the availability of well-annotated corpora of
naturally occurring, continuous speech. Yet existing speech corpora
are rarely well-annotated. A key to proper annotation is the
availability of partially automated systems for linking selected
portions of a visual display of speech to the corresponding
transcriptions. To be of practical use, such systems must be able to
handle large files of digitized speech and they should permit
transcriptions at different levels of analysis.

 This workshop will be devoted to the presentation and discussion
of papers and software demonstrations which reflect the current state
of the art. We invite proposals of up to 800 words which address the
development, use, evaluation, or potential commercial application of
such systems.



SUBMISSIONS
- ---------

Only email submissions in LaTeX or Ascii will be accepted.
Authors should submit an abstract of no more than 800
words to:

 trans98cs.concordia.ca
