CALL FOR PARTICIPATION Workshop: What can Natural Language Processing and Semantic Web technologies do for eLearning? June 24th, 2007 http://www.lt4el.eu/ws_prague.php Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. Address: Malostranske square 25 (Malostranske namesti 25) In conjunction with ACL 2007 Introduction The European project Language Technology for eLearning (LT4eL) exploits NLP techniques, language resources as well as Semantic Web technologies to improve the retrieval and the accessibility of learning material within a Learning Management System. More generally, we believe that eLearning can benefit enormously from the results achieved in these areas and it is for this reason that we think that it would be useful to bring together researchers from these various disciplines to exchange results, ideas and plans. The workshop will provide a forum for interaction among members of these different research communities, and a means for attendees to increase their knowledge and understanding of the potential of Natural Language Processing, Language technology and the Semantic Web in eLearning. The workshop will have the following goals: 1. identify what Natural Language Processing, Language Technology and the Semantic Web vision can do for eLearning and what eLearning expects from results in these areas. 2. identify strong and weak points of the technologies developed within Natural Language Processing, Language Technology and the Semantic Web (on the basis of the applications/projects discussed in the presentations) in order to assess to which extent they can be employed within eLearning and eventually come up with new solutions and ideas. Presentations will be limited to the invited speakers but participation will be open to the public. Attendance is free, but registration is needed. Information on registration can be found on the webpage of the workshop, as well as the full programme: http://www.lt4el.eu/ws_prague.php Workshop Organization: Paola Monachesi (Utrecht University) Local Organization: Vladisvlav Kubon (Charles University Prague) _______________________________________________
