** Submission deadline extended to 15th July 2007 ** *********** CALL FOR PAPERS *********** TeMA-2007 Workshop on Text Mining and Applications TeMA-2007 will be held at the 13^th Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence (EPIA 2007), in Guimarães, Portugal, 3-7 December 2007. This workshop is organized under the auspices of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA). EPIA 2007 URL: http://epia2007.appia.pt/ This announcement contains: [1] Workshop description; [2] Topics of interest; [3] Important dates; [4] Paper submission; [5] Workshop fees; [6] Organizing Committee; [7] Program Committee and [8] Contacts. [1] Workshop Description: Pure symbolic methods for Language Processing alone are unable to address human languages complexity. Text Mining and Machine Learning techniques applied to text, raw or annotated, brought up new insights and completely shifted the approaches to Human Language Technologies. Both approaches, when duly integrated, bridge the gap between language theories and effective use of languages, and enable important applications. Our aim, with this workshop, is to bring together innovative contributions to fill in this gap. Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the issues identified below. Papers will be blindly reviewed by three members of the Programme Committee. Best papers will be published at Springer, in LNAI series. If there are additional papers whose quality is sufficiently high for deserving to be presented at TEMA’07, those other accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. [2] Topics of Interest Text Mining from raw and/or annotated text: - Pattern extraction methodologies. - Document Clustering/Classification. - Document Summarization. - Topic segmentation of documents. - Word and Multi-word Sense Disambiguation. - Semantic Restrictions extraction. - Word and multi-word translation extraction. - Algorithms and Data Structures for Text Mining. Applications: - Natural Language Processing. - Example-Based/Statistical Machine Translation. - Intelligent Information Retrieval. - Multilingual access to multilingual information. - Question-Answering Systems. - E-training and E-learning. [3] Important dates 15-July-07: Paper submission deadline 28-July-07: Author notification 01-Sept-07: Deadline for final camera-ready papers [4] Paper submission * Submissions must be full technical papers on substantial, original, and previously unpublished research. * Submissions must follow the guidelines specified in the conference site. Authors must remove their names from the submitted papers, and should take reasonable care not to indirectly disclose their identity. The Springer LNCS format must be used (instructions in _www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html <http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html>_). 12 pages is the maximum length of the papers accepted for this Workshop. Extra pages will be charged by the Conference Organization. * Paper submissions will be made in PDF format, through the submission page available in EPIA 2007 website http://epia2007.appia.pt/. [5] Workshop Fees: Workshop participants must register at the main EPIA 2007 conference. No extra fee shall be paid for attending this workshop.
