FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS ACL/EACL 2001 Workshop ARABIC Language Processing: Status and Prospects Toulouse, France, Friday 6 July 2001 Co-organized by: ELSNET/NAPLUS WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES AND DESCRIPTION: The objective of the workshop is threefold. * First of all we want to bring together people who are actively involved in Arabic language and/or speech processing in a mono- or multilingual context, and give them an opportunity to report on completed and ongoing work as well as on the availability of products and core technologies. This should enable the participants to develop a common view on where we stand with respect to Arabic language processing. * Secondly, we want to identify problems of common interest, and possible mechanisms to move towards solutions, such as sharing of tools and resources, moving towards standards, sharing and dissemination of information and expertise, adoption of current best practices, setting up joint projects and technology transfer mechanisms, etc. * Third, we would like to enhance collaboration between the Arabic NLP community and the NLP community at large. The workshop program will include the following components: * Introduction * Overview talks * Scientific papers * Short presentations of projects, core technologies and products * A panel session and/or a round table discussion * Conclusions SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR SCIENTIFIC PAPERS: Papers are solicited that address all aspects of Arabic language processing in a mono- or multilingual context, including tools, resources and standards. Papers will have to be original and report on completed research. Submissions of scientific papers should not exceed eight (8) pages. Please provide a list of keywords in the separate header page. Further submission details below. SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR SHORT PRESENTATIONS OF PROJECTS, CORE TECHNOLOGIES AND PRODUCTS: Short presentations serve to give the audience an impression of ongoing activities and projects, and of existing core technologies and products, with a view to possible collaboration and synergies (i.e. NO commercial product presentations). Submissions of short presentations should not exceed two (2) pages. Short presentations will be reviewed on the basis of relevance and clarity of presentation. REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS: Electronic submissions only (PostScript, Word, or PDF), following the appropriate ACL latex style or Microsoft Word style.
