	The purpose of the IRAL workshop is to bring together researchers and
	developers who are interested in exchanging new ideas and presenting
	results in the field of information retrieval (IR), with an emphasis
	on the issues related to Asian languages and multilingual applications.

	The first International Workshop was held in 1996 in Taejon, Korea,
	with the name "Information Retrieval with Oriental Languages". The
	second and the third workshops were held in Japan and Singapore in
	1997 and 1998 respectively. To further facilitate interchange between
	the information retrieval and digital library communities, the fourth
	workshop will be held in Academia Sinica Taipei on November 11-12,
        1999, directly before the Second Asian Digital Libraries Conference
	IRAL'99 welcomes submissions of original papers in the broad field of
	information storage and retrieval, but topics contributed to Asian
	languages are strongly encouraged. The technical issues to be addressed
	include, but are not limited to:
	 . IR Theory including statistical and logical IR models, data fusion.
	 . Experimentation: test collections, evaluation measures, experimental
	   design, testing methodology, scalability.
	 . Systems and Implementation Issues: integration with database systems,
	   networked systems and the internet, compression, query evaluation.
	 . Natural Language Processing: word sense disambiguation, discourse
	   analysis, and summarization for the purposes of IR; cross-lingual
	   IR systems, dialog management, use of linguistic resources for IR.
	 . Filtering, Routing, and Text Classification.
	 . Applications: task-embedded IR, electronic publishing, digital
	   libraries, text data mining.
	Papers (4 hardcopies) should be submitted in English only to the
	Program Chair of the Fourth International Workshop as follows:
	    Dr. Lee-Feng Chien
