Call for Papers International Conference on Machine Intelligence (ICMI’05), Tozeur, Tunisia http://www.acidca-icmi2005.org <http://www.acidca-icmi2005.org/> Special Session on Linguistic Information Integration in Arabic Character and Text Recognition The International Conference on Machine Intelligence 2005 (ICMI’05) will be held in Tozeur, Tunisia, November 5-7, 2005. A special session on Linguistic Information Integration in Arabic Character and Text Recognition is planned. The session, which is due to last one full day, aims at bringing together specialists in Arabic OCR and Text recognition and specialists in Natural language processing (NLP), with special reference to Arabic, in either monolingual or multilingual perspective. The idea is to discuss the integration of linguistic information in linguistic-based and statistic-based approaches of Arabic printed and handwritten documents recognition, with special reference to various types of languages resources (LR-s), and to LR based analyzers. The idea is to develop robust systems for the recognition, indexing and thematic classification of printed or handwritten Arabic texts. The building of such systems is of momentous interest for Arabic countries and organizations, considering the significant production of printed and handwritten documents in Arabic witnessed daily in the whole world. Robust OCR systems should also be of great help in the indexing of Arabic historical documents and manuscripts in the context of the conservation and protection of the Arabic culture and civilisation inheritance. Papers of current interest are invited to any of the areas listed below: - Arabic character, word and text recognition - Analysis of vowel-free Arabic texts - Arabic language resources (electronic dictionaries, tree-banks, contextual analysis resources, etc.) - Robust OCR techniques (printed and handwritten documents) - Word and text images digitalization, compression and indexation techniques Submission procedure Papers should conform to the guidelines of the ACIDCA-ICMI’05 conference. Guidelines for formatting papers can be found in the ACIDCA-ICMI’05 web site ( <http://www.acidca-icmi2005.org/> www.acidca-icmi2005.org).
