Workshop: The Automatic Treatment of Multilinguality in Retrieval, Search and Lexicography Place: University of Copenhagen, Njalsgade 128, 2300 Copenhagen S Room: 23.4.39 Date: Thursday 26 April, 2007 Multilingual information retrieval is currently a research topic attracting much international attention. In the Nordic countries where almost everybody has passive knowledge of their neighbours’ languages information retrieved in a language different from the query language is a particularly interesting phenomenon. Therefore, the Nordic Council of Ministers has initiated some research projects aiming at the development of automatic methods for developing bi- and multi-lingual dictionaries and terminologies to be used in cross-lingual search and retrieval. The aim of this workshop is to discuss the results of these research projects and other new and ongoing research in this area with external experts and other specialists with interest in dictionary and terminology construction and multilingual search and retrieval. Workshop fee Participation in the workshop and lunch are free of charge.
