> Workshop on International Proofing Tools and Language Technologies > > Pre-final Call for Papers > > REMINDER > ***(extended deadline: 8 September, 2003)*** > > http://www.cti.gr/ru2/wo rkshop/index.htm > > > Workshop Motivation > > Recent years have seen major breakthroughs in natural language processing > (NLP) technology based on the development of powerful new techniques that > combine linguistic information and statistical methods. A critical element > that is still lacking, however, is the availability of NLP technology to > end users as a default service of any system independently of working > environments and application platforms. Despite the heavy usage of some > Proofing Tools in specific tasks and environments there are still areas of > computing systems that lack any service provided by such tools. In this > respect the workshop on Proofing Tools and Language Technologies aims at > sheding light on the availability and services of such tools as well as > setting the grounds for their extension to other areas of computer > technology. > > > Workshop Objectives > > The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers, engineers > and vendors interested in the advances and real-life applications of > various Proofing Tools incorporated in their information systems. The > workshop will cover different aspects of Information Systems Applications, > including Database Technology, Natural Language Processing Modules, > Systems Integration, Desktop Applications, Information Systems > Specification and Services Improvement for sustainable development. > > The workshop focuses on real world applications; therefore contributors > should highlight the benefits of Proofing Tools, Language Technologies and > NLP applications for industrial purposes, suggesting alternatives on how > to solve Informantion Systems' problems and improve their performance. > Papers describing advanced approaches towards Proofing Tools design and > implelementation and survey papers indicating future directions in the > area of Information Systems' Applications are strongly encouraged. Papers > describing original work or new approaches in any of the areas listed > below are encouraged. > > Accepted papers, presented at the event will be published in the > Proceedings of the Workshop, which will be published after the event and > made available via the workshop's web site. Both full research reports and > work-in-progress reports are welcome. A special session dedicated to > demonstrations as well as a turorial dedicated to technical and scientific > topics are also envisaged. Industrial and private sector vendors > interested in demonstrating their products as well as their methodologies > for Proofing Tools and applications development are invited to submit a > short paper indicating the main points of their demos. > > Topics of Interest > > We invite submission of papers on topics relevant to Information Systems' > Applications, Proofing Tools Development and Language Technologies, > including but not limited to: > > -Proofing Tools Specifications with emphasis on linguistic issues > > -Language Technologies and multilingualism > > -Bussines competitiveness and NLP services improvement for meeting end > users and developers requirements > > -Language-specific tools > > -Lexical resources and standardization patterns > > -Evaluation measures > > -Security mechanisms > > -Difficulties encountered while developing Proofing Tools > > -Databases and Information Systems Integration > > -Futute advances and perspectives in Poofing Tools development and how > these affect language processing modules > > -Proofing Tools integration platforms > > -Minority Languages > > -EU Contribution in Proofing Tools and NLP projects > > Papers may address one or more of the listed topics, although > contributions are not limited by them and can also discuss relevant topics > that fit in one or more of the main topic areas. > > > Important Dates > > Deadline for workshop abstract submission: 8 September 2003 > (extended) *********** > > Notification of acceptance: 30 September 2003 > > Final version of full/short papers and demos for workshop proceedings: 20 > October 2003 > > Submissions > > Papers should describe existing work and research connected to the topics > of the workshop. The presentation at the workshop will be 20 minutes long > (15 minutes presentation and 5 minutes discussion). Each submission > should include: tittle, author(s), affiliation, and contact author's > e-mail address, postal address, phone and fax numbers. Extended abstracts > (maximum 1,500 words), plain-text format should be sent to: > avri_(on)_cti.gr > > The final version of the accepted submissions should be no longer that 10 > A4 pages. Instructions on the format and presentation of the final version > will be sent to authors upon notification of acceptance. > > > Submissions of tutorials. > > Anyone interested in organizing a tutorial should submit a proposal to the > Wokshop secretary (avri_(on)_cti.gr) before 30 September 2003 by > -e-mail.
