It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep. The University of Cape Town and my new colleagues welcomed my efforts to establish the Centre for African Language Diversity-- CALDi as well as The African Language Archive-- TALA and I was recently appointed the Mellon Research Chair: African Language Diversity this initiative. The main aim of CALDi is to train young African scholars in descriptive linguistics and open up space for research into African languages at UCT with the hopes of countering the dominance of African linguistics outside the continent.

> Recent advances in Text Categorization and Clustering
Automatic Text Categorization and Clustering are becoming more and more
important as the amount of text in electronic format grows and the access
to it becomes more necessary and widespread. Well known applications are
spam filtering and web search, but a large number of everyday uses exist
(intelligent web search, data mining, law enforcement, etc.) Currently,
researchers are employing many intelligent techniques for text
categorization and clustering, ranging from support vector machines and
neural networks to Bayesian inference and algebraic methods, such as Latent
This volume offers a wide spectrum of research work developed for
intelligent text categorization and clustering. In the following, we give a
brief introduction of the chapters that are included in this book.
