* Apologies for multiple postings! * *** EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE 27 JULY 2005 *** CALL FOR PAPERS http://lml.bas.bg/ranlp2005/LSI_balkan.htm Workshop to be held in conjunction with RANLP 2005 http://www.lml.bas.bg/ranlp2005 25 September 2005 Borovets, Bulgaria OVERVIEW The emerging convergence of internet and media technologies, the abundance of interesting and useful archived and contemporary content and the ever increasing need for access to this content has set new challenges and opportunities for human language technologies (HLT). Useful results from the application of HLT for information access in a number of widely used languages already exist, while only some first attempts have been made in lesser used languages. At the same time, the enlargement process of the European Union and the forthcoming accession of a number of Balkan countries set new requirements for technologically enhanced access to information generated and consumed in the Balkan Peninsula. The current workshop aims at bringing together researchers working in a broad range of human language technologies for processing single- and/or multimedia content. The focus of the workshop is on issues relevant to the respective linguistic infrastructure in the Balkan countries. Submissions should be related to language and speech resources, tools and applications developed for the languages of the Balkans. More specifically, topics include but are not limited to: · grammars, lexicons and wordnets · information retrieval & extraction · text summarization · question answering · natural language generation · machine translation and computer-aided translation tools · speech synthesis and recognition · dialogue systems · multimedia information processing · computer-assisted language learning · architectures and development environments · evaluation of resources and language processing components and systems LANGUAGE The official language of the workshop is English. SUBMISSIONS Submissions should be A4, two-column format and should not exceed seven pages, including cover page, figures, tables and references. Times New Roman 12 pt font is preferred. The first page should state the title of the paper, the author's name(s), affiliation(s), postal and email address(es), a list of keywords and an abstract. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format to Stelios Piperidis, spip_(on)_ilsp.gr Each paper will be reviewed by up to three members of the programme committee. Authors of accepted papers will receive guidelines regarding how to produce camera-ready version of their papers for inclusion in the proceedings. Parallel submissions to the main conference and the workshop are allowed but the review process will be coordinated.
