Third International Workshop on Cross Lingual Information Access: Addressing the Information Need of  Multilingual Societies (CLIAWS3)

Boulder, Colorado; June 04,2009 


Submission Deadline: March 06, 2009 


Cross-Language Information Access is concerned with any/all technologies that let users express their query in  their native language, and irrespective of the language in which the information is available, present the  information in the user-preferred language or set of languages, in a manner that satisfies the user's information  needs. The additional processing may take the form of machine translation of snippets, summarization and  subsequent translation of summaries and/or information extraction.

This workshop aims to bring together various trends in multi-source, cross and multilingual information retrieval  and access, and provide a venue for researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to  interact and share a broad spectrum of ideas, views and applications. The workshop will consist of a set of  invited talks and presentations of technical papers that will be selected after peer review from the submissions  received.

We solicit submissions describing research on all aspects of "Cross Lingual Information Access and Retrieval".  Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Semantic approaches to cross lingual information access * Cross-language cross media search (speech, video, audio) * Uses of (statistical) Machine Translation and Transliteration in multilingual information access * Search based on language independent forms * Cross-language text categorization * Multilingual / Cross-lingual named entity recognition * Cross-document and crosslingual entity and event coreference * Multilingual digital libraries * Scalability issues in multilingual information access/ system evaluation * Cross Lingual/ Multilingual question answering * Appropriate methods to detect similar/complementary/contradictory information across multiple languages * Multilingual Summarization * Multilingual Opinion Mining and Sentiment Analysis * Multilingual Information Extraction * Practical systems on various domains * Acquisition of parallel and comparable corpora in multiple languages * Morphology and Shallow Parsing for CLIR * Query Translation, Query Expansion, Multiword handling and Lightweight WSD for CLIR * Other CLIR research issues, user studies / interactive CLIA 


Authors are invited to submit a full paper of up to 8 pages in electronic, PDF format (with up to 1 additional  page for references). Previously published papers cannot be accepted. The submissions will be reviewed by the  program committee. As reviewing will be blind, please ensure that papers are anonymous. Self-references that  reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use  citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...".

Papers will be accepted on or before 6 March 2009 in PDF format via the START system at https://www.softconf.com/  naacl-hlt09/CLIAWS2009/. Submissions should follow the NAACL HLT 2009 length and formatting requirements for full  papers , found at http://clear.colorado.edu/NAACLHLT2009/stylefiles.html.
