SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

The Third International MALINDO Workshop (MALINDO2009)

2 August 2009

Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Singapore

http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~malindo/

(AN OFFICIAL ACL-IJCNLP 2009 CO-LOCATED EVENT,

http://www.acl-ijcnlp-2009.org/)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

A considerable amount of research has been done on the processing of Malaysian

and Indonesian languages offering a variety of Computational Linguistics (CL)

and Natural Language Processing (NLP) resources (dictionaries, thesauri,

monolingual/parallel corpora etc.), tools (morphological analysers/generators,

stemmers, spelling checkers, syntactic parsers, etc.) and applications (machine

translation, information extraction, information retrieval, etc.). All these

valuable language resources, tools, and services are most of the time ignored

by the public and often not known by the researchers and students working on

these languages.

This third MALINDO Workshop aims to bring together researchers and

practitioners, representing different perspectives, to share and to exchange

their ideas on the processing of Indonesian and Malaysian languages.

Thus, the organisers of the workshop want to highlight the effort and promising

works done on the processing of Malaysian and Indonesian languages in order to

attract more students to the CL and NLP fields and also to let all the NLP

communities in this World be aware of their existence. The MALINDO workshop

is organized by the National

University of Singapore (NUS, Republic of Singapore), Universitas

Indonesia (UI, Jakarta, Indonesia), and Multimedia University

(MMU, Cyberjaya-Malacca, Malaysia).

Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished papers on any

topic that is of interest to the processing of Malaysian and

Indonesian languages and its broad applications, for presentation at

the workshop and publication in the proceedings.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

The topics of the papers are requested to be in all areas related to

the processing - computational and theoretical point of view - of

Malaysian and Indonesian languages.

* Language resources development, acquisition, annotation,

and representation: dictionaries, thesauri, terminology, lexicons,

written and spoken corpora, grammars, ontology

* CL and NLP tools and techniques: spelling/grammatical/style checkers,

chunker, syntactic parser, word sense disambiguator, discourse

processing, text and speech alignment, text and speech segmentation,

term extraction and recognition, named entity extraction,

* CL and NLP applications: machine translation and translation aids,

information retrieval, information extraction, text summarisation,

term extraction, natural language generation, question translation

aids, information retrieval, information extraction, text

summarization, term extraction, natural language generation, question

answering, document categorization, language identification, speech

recognition, speech synthesis, character recognition, e-learning,
