FOURTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON CROSS LINGUAL INFORMATION ACCESS

COLING 2010, Beijing 28th August, 2010

http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/UM/india/events/CLIA2010/page.htm

The fourth workshop on Cross Lingual Information Access aims to bring together researchers from a variety of fields and practitioners from government and industry to address the issue of information need of multi-lingual societies. This workshop will also highlight the contributions of NLP and computational linguistic aspects to CLIA, in addition to the previously better represented viewpoint from Information Retrieval.

IMPORTANT DATES

. 30th May, 2010 Paper submission due

. 30th June, 2010 Paper notification of acceptance

. 10th July, 2010 Paper Camera-ready due

. 28th August, 2010 CLIA 2010 Workshop

CALL FOR PAPERS

Cross-lingual information access (CLIA) is concerned with technologies and applications that enable people to freely access information that is expressed in any language that may differ from the query language. With the rapid development of globalization and digital online information in Internet, a growing demand for CLIA has emerged. Ordinary netizens who are surfing the Internet for special information and communicating in social networks, global companies which provide multilingual services to their multinational customers, governments who aim to lower the barriers to international commerce and collaboration and homeland security are in need of cross lingual access. This has triggered vigorous research and development in CLIA. This workshop is the fourth in a series of workshops and aims to address the need of cross-lingual information access. The previous three workshops were held during IJCAI 2007 in Hyderabad, IJCNLP 2008 in Hyderabad, and NAACL 2009 in Colorado.

In this workshop, in addition to Cross-lingual Information Retrieval (CLIR), the focus is on multi-lingual information extraction, information integration, summarization, and other key technologies that are useful for CLIA. The workshop aims to bring together researchers from a variety of fields such as information retrieval, computational linguistics, machine translation, and digital library, and practitioners from government and industry to address the issue of information need of multi-lingual societies. This workshop also aims to highlight and emphasize the contributions of NLP and computational linguistic aspects to CLIA, in addition to the previously better represented viewpoint from Information Retrieval. We thus solicit

submissions in the following and related topics:

MULTI-LINGUAL KNOWLEDGE ACQUISITION

. Acquisition of multi-lingual parallel/comparable/non-comparable corpora

. Multi-lingual document/sentence/word alignment

. Multi-lingual lexicon/term extraction

. Multi-lingual new words / named entity detection and translation MACHINE TRANSLATION IN CLIA

. Interaction between cross-lingual information retrieval and machine translation

. Query translation and document translation

. Developing statistical machine translation systems from multi-lingual corpora

. Domain adaptation in machine translation

. Multi-lingual / Cross-lingual named entity recognition

NLP/CL/IR FOR CLIA

. Multi-lingual summarization

. Multi-lingual information extraction

. Multi-lingual question answering

GENERAL CLIA

. Approaches to cross-lingual/multi-lingual information access

. Domain specific cross-lingual/multi-lingual information access

. Cross-lingual cross media search (speech, video, audio)

. Machine Learning for multi-lingual information access

. Scalability issues in cross-lingual/multi-lingual information access

. system evaluation
