2003 Australasian Language Technology Workshop (ALTW2003)
Workshop: 10th December 2003
Submissions due: **30TH AUGUST 2003**
Workshop website: http://www.cs.otago.ac.nz/research/ai/ALTW2003/
A one-day workshop on Natural Language Technology will be organised by the
Australasian Language Technology Association (ALTA).
The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Australasian Language
Technology Summer School in Melbourne:
The goals of the workshop are:
* to bring together the growing Language Technology (LT) community in
Australia and New Zealand;
* to encourage interactions between this community and the
international LT community;
* to provide an opportunity for the broader artificial intelligence
community to become aware of local LT research;
* to provide a forum for discussion of new research;
* to foster interaction between academic and industrial research.
Our hope is to get as many Australasian LTers together as possible to
encourage dialogue between those working on similar topics and between
areas with a - perhaps as yet untapped - potential to interact.
We would also like to encourage non-Australasian LTers to submit papers,
and to participate in the workshop.
Papers submitted to the workshop will be reviewed by an international
programme committee, and the workshop proceedings will be published with
an ISBN number.
We invite the submission of papers on substantial, original, and
unpublished research on all aspects of natural language processing,
including, but not limited to:
* speech understanding and generation;
* phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse;
* interpreting and generating spoken and written language;
* linguistic, mathematical, and psychological models of language;
* language-oriented information extraction and retrieval;
* corpus-based and statistical language modeling;
* machine translation and translation aids;
* natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
* message and narrative understanding systems;
* computational lexicography.
We welcome submissions on any topic that is of interest to the LT
community, but we particularly encourage submissions that broaden the
scope of our community through the consideration of practical LT
applications. We especially invite people from industry working on LT to
send us their submissions and offer an opportunity to discuss and
demonstrate their latest applications in front of an informed audience.
