*** Apologies for multiple copies *** **************************************************************************** ************* SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS Workshop on NLP for Educational Resources In conjunction with RANLP-2007 September 26, 2007 Borovetz, Bulgaria The submission system is available at the Workshop site http://ixa.si.ehu.es/NLP_ER2007 RANLP 2007 site http://lml.bas.bg/ranlp2007/ In this workshop we will discuss how using NLP techniques in the automatic treatment of texts can support pedagogic goals. There are well over 100 documented projects at the use of NLP in Intelligent Computer-Assisted Language Learning (ICALL) (Heift & Schulze,2007); however, there are significantly fewer publications about the use of NLP techniques in educational areas other than language learning. This workshop will bring together NLP and ICALL researchers with colleagues who are investigating NLP treatment for other educational purposes. Our main aim is to discuss how we can use NLP in the automatic treatment of corpora for pedagogical purposes as well as in the analysis of learner corpora (students free responses). The contributions of this workshop will share at least two keywords: NLP and Education. We especially seek contributions about the adaptation and integration of NLP techniques in the following areas: * Automatic exercise and task generation * Controlled language * Error diagnosis and remediation * Essay assessment * Fostering language awareness * Automatic generation of didactic resources * Analysis of learners? interlanguage * NLP for processing texts in ICALL environments * Learner corpora * Learning of textual analysis (in linguistics, literature, anthropology, ?) * Student modelling * Text production tools (e.g. grammar and spell checkers) * Translator training Heift, Trude, & Schulze, Mathias.
