* Apologies for multiple postings! * **************************** Second Call for Participation **************************** REGISTRATION NOW OPEN EUROLAN 2005 THE MULTILINGUAL WEB: RESOURCES, TECHNOLOGIES, AND PROSPECTS http://www.cs.ubbcluj.ro/eurolan2005/ SITE UPDATED July 25 - August 6, 2005 "Babes-Bolyai" University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania Organisers: "Al.I.Cuza" University of Iasi Romanian Academy, Bucharest "Babes-Bolyai" University of Cluj-Napoca A truly global society will rely heavily on access to information that can accommodate multiple cultures and languages. To enable this, researchers in language technology are developing resources and applications to support a multilingual web that will ensure the requisite trans-lingual capabilities. The EUROLAN 2005 summer school will provide two weeks of intensive study of the technologies and resources currently under development to support multilingual processing, as well as the applications that exploit them to enable multilingual access to information disseminated via the web. Internationally known scholars and researchers involved in leading-edge work in relevant areas will serve as professors at the school, giving half- and full-day seminars and hands-on labs to provide students with in-depth understanding and experience. Topics to be covered in the school include the following: - creation and exploitation of multilingual resources, including corpora, lexicons, wordnets, and ontologies; - multilingual alignment of syntax, semantics, discourse, and other language phenomena; - annotation of various phenomena in multiple languages, including word senses, time annotations, anaphora; - annotation transfer, enabling importing in new languages of knowledge encoded in the mark-up for English, etc.; - cross-lingual applications, including machine translation, information retrieval, extraction and summarization, document indexing, etc.; - the multilingual "knowledge web", its philosophy, state of the art, needs, and vision for the future.

Whatever the venue, the EUROLAN summer schools are well known for the degree of camaraderie that develops among students and professors alike - just ask any previous participant! Students in the school learn an enormous amount, but at the same time enjoy the warmth of new friendships with both fellow students and professors. Program Committee: Dan Cristea, "Al. I.
