Second call for paper: "Natural Language Processing for Ancient Languages"

Guest editors: Joseph Denooz and Serge Rosmorduc

The TAL journal launches a call for papers for an special issue of the journal on NLP for Ancient Languages. « Ancient Languages » is here understood on a large basis: we consider both dead languages (Akkadian, Ancient Egyptian, Latin...) and old stages of modern languages (Old and Middle French...).

Proposals may deal with all aspect of computer storage and processing of ancient languages, as for instance: automated morphological or syntactic analysis of ancient languages; text corpora (creation of a corpus, searches systems, etc.); dictionaries; encoding of ancient languages (scripting system, text representation, unicode and ISO 10646, etc.); XML, TEI and ancient languages (use of XML to model ancient documents, corpus representation, DTD or schemas for dictionaries) ; text capture, OCR and ancient texts, links between pictures corpora and structured representations; NLP as a tool for the philologist (practical uses of NLP in the context of philological or grammatical research). uses of NLP in teaching ancient languages. diachronic studies (models for language change, diachronic databases, etc.)

The Journal TAL (Traitement Automatique des Langues / Natural Language Processing) is a forty year old international journal published by ATALA (French Association for Natural Language Processing) with the support of CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research).
