First Call for Papers

Computational Approaches to Semitic Languages

University of Pennsylvania
Thursday 11 July, 2002

This workshop is a sequel to the workshop on Computational Approaches
to Semitic Languages that was held at COLING98 in Montreal. Since that
time, there have been various other workshops, but these have mostly
turned out to be either rather applications-oriented, or rather
language specific, or both. Whilst not neglecting applications, the
present workshop aims to attract submissions that contribute
significantly to theoretical insights concerning computational
frameworks underlying the processing of Semitic languages in
general. Morphology and/or phonology would seem to be promising areas
of investigation in this sense. An effort will also be made to
highlight submissions that concern a representative set of

Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

-  Orthographic Representation
-  Morphological/Phonological Models
-  Speech Applications
-  Syntax, Parsing and Generation
-  Semantics
-  Acquisition of Language Resources
-  Corpora
-  Use of Machine Learning Techniques
-  Multilingual / Mixed Language Applications
-  Information Retrieval and Extraction
