The Conference will be held in the excellent meeting facilities of the British Computer Society in central London. If you would like to present a paper please could you submit a 200-400 word abstract of your proposed paper by 15 July.

We will accept or reject the abstract by the 15 August. After acceptance we would require your paper to be supplied in hardcopy and electronic form (MS Word only with Arabic capability) by 15 September for inclusion in the Proceedings which will be published under the auspices of the British Computer Society. We are looking for papers to be delivered in 30 to 40 minutes with each being followed immediately by 5 to 10 minutes of question and answer time. Facilities are available for the display of computer information for illustration purposes during the presentation. We will also be able to provide separate facilities for the demonstration of software without the presentation of a paper. We have tentatively divided up the day under the following headings, but this is flexible, Morning (i) Introduction: talks on the Arabic language (ii) The challenges of Arabic for language processing Afternoon (iii) Concrete applications I: NLP tasks and applications for Arabic (iv) Concrete applications II: MT between English and Arabic in focus With reference to expenses for attending and presenting your paper at the Conference I regret we are not in a position to pay for any expenses outside this country. Within the UK we may be able to pay some expenses on an individual basis. As soon as you like, please let me know what you need, if anything. We may be able to arrange reasonably priced (for London) hotel accommodation for you if you need it. Please let me know by 15 July as well.

Finally, I would be grateful if you could let me know as soon as possible of any e-mail lists which you think we should address in order to advertise this Conference more widely.
