The editorial committee will make all efforts to include every worthwhile paper in this publication, which will have benefited from revision following discussions and comments at the conference. 2. The proceedings of IJCNLP-2004 will be archived in the ACL anthology site for future reference. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ [2] LATEST DONATION TO AFNLP FOR ITS INAUGURAL CONFERENCE IN HAINAN We are very grateful to our colleagues from the Association for Computational Linguistics and Chinese Langauge Processing in Taipei for joining the ranks of others in their generous support of the inaugaural conference of AFNLP in Hainan next march in spirit and in monetary terms. The contributions we will receive will go a long way towards helping promoting better cross-fertilization among NLP efforts in asia beyond the conference, especially with respect to colleagues working on languages not yet on centre stage. Thus far we have support pledged from the following organizations: Association for Natural Language Processing of Japan (ANLP), Tokyo Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), Philadelphia Association for Computational Linguistics and Chinese Language Processing (ACLCLP), Taipei Korea NLP society, Seoul Chinese Information Processing Society of China (CLISC), Beijing We would very much welcome similar reponse from other like minded organizations, which are in a position to add to the material support as well. Professors Kam-Fai Wong and Tom Lai are the chair and vice chair of the Finance committee for IJCNLP-04 and will be happy to follow up on any specific queries. We thank our colleagues in Taipei again and with all best wishes, Benjamin Tsou General Co-chair ------------------------------------------------------------------------ [3] Merger of two thematic sessions Following two original Thematic Sessions have been merged into a new one: [Original TS-2] Natural Language Technology in the Text Processing User Interface (organized by Michael Kuehn and Kumiko TANAKA-Ishii) [Original TS-3] Mobile Information Retrieval (organized by Mun-Kew Leong) New Thematic Sessions after merge: [TS-1] Natural Language Learning using Both Labeled and Unlabeled Data (organized by: Hang Li) [New TS-2] Natural Language Technologies in Mobile Information Retrieval and Text Processing User Interfaces (organized by: Michael Kuehn, Mun-Kew Leong, and Kumiko Tanaka-Ishii) [New TS-3] Text mining in Biomedicine (organized by: Sophia Ananiadou and Jong C.
