 Sunday, October 27, 1991
 Washington Hilton & Towers

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are concerned
with the potentially significant role of sophisticated natural language
processing (NLP) in intelligent information retrieval (IR). The workshop will
focus on the progress that has been made to date on the application of NLP
methods to the IR problem and will provide a forum for discussing some promising
areas for future research. Topics to be presented include concept based
 retrieval
and indexing, processing information for speech synthesis, using specialized
dictionaries to improve retrieval, and integrating NLP and IR. The workshop
 will
conclude with a panel discussion on recent initiatives in natural language
processing and information retrieval.
A full proceedings of the workshop will be made available to those attend. The
workshop is open to all interested researchers. There will be a workshop
registration fee which will be used to cover the cost of preparing the
proceedings and providing refreshments. Lunch will not be provided.
