 Research in the areasof Artificial Intelligence, Computational Linguistics and LanguageProcessing faces a number of significant challenges, especially in thedevelopment of tools, resources and systems for languages other than Englishsuch as Tamil.  Most of the research in the areas of ComputationalLinguistics and Artificial Intelligence is predominantly for English.

In this context Tamil InternetConference (TIC) has emerged as the major regular forum for presentation anddiscussion of the best research results for the work on Tamil Language in theareas of Tamil Computing and Computational Linguistics. Initiated in 1997 atSingapore, the TIC series established itself as a specialised and competitiveforum for the presentation of the works on Tamil Computing ranging fromtheoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, corpus studies,computational modelling and high end applications. The series is unique in thatit covers Tamil Computing from such a variety of multidisciplinaryperspectives.

In this edition of TICwe have chosen "Tamil Robotics and Language Processing” as the specialfocus theme.

 The topics of interestfor the Conference include, but are not limited to:

 Natural Language Processing in Tamil (morphology, syntax, semantics, POS taggers, parsing, phonology, corpuslinguistics,)
