------------------------------------------------------------------------ Call for Papers ICL: Workshop on Iberian Cross-Language NLP tasks September 7, 2011, Huelva, Spain in conjunction with the 27th Conference of the Spanish Society for Natural Language Processing - SEPLN 2011 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the Iberian Peninsula, five official languages co-exist: Basque, Catalan, Galician, Portuguese and Spanish. Fostering multi-linguality and establishing strong links among the linguistic resources developed for each language of the region is essential.

Additionally, a lack of published resources in some of these languages exists. Such lack propitiates a strong inter-relation between them and higher resourced languages, such as English and Spanish.

In order to favour the intra-relation among the peninsular languages as well as the inter-relation between them and foreign languages, different purpose multilingual NLP tools need to be developed.


Cross-language / multilingual:

- text categorisation - information retrieval - question answering - patent retrieval - word sense disambiguation - opinion mining - lexical substitution - text summarization - text re-use analysis - plagiarism detection - paraphrasing for MT - text similarity estimation - similarity of Wikipedia across languages

These tasks are often based on statistical, linguistic and hybrid approaches. Machine translation, cognates exploitation or semantic relatedness are examples of the multiple resources available for the development of such tools.

The workshop addresses researchers from different fields of natural language processing/computational linguistics: text mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, information retrieval and machine translation.
