            -|-------------------------------------|-

NLPRS has contributed to the promotion and circulation of research
efforts in Computational Linguistics and related subjects, primarily
among scholars in the Pacific Rim area.  As the NLPRS culminating
a millennium, NLPRS-99 would like to invite more scholars than ever
before, including those beyond the Pacific boundaries, covering
topics of all related areas, in order to create a memorable occasion
before the next century. The papers must be original and address
unpublished work on all aspects of Computational Linguistics.


TOPICS

The conference papers may represent technical works in all areas of
computational linguistics. The following categories are illustrative only.
Do not hesitate to send your papers even if you think that the area of your
paper is not exactly covered by the categories below.

    General Categories
        morphology
        syntax
        discourse
        generation
        anaphora resolution
        lexical semantics
        machine translation
        dialogue
        bilingual alignment
        statistical parsing

    Linguistic Data
        lexical acquisition
        corpus analysis

    Applications

        parallel implementations

    Thematic topics
        millennium view/experiences from large projects
        internet

THEMATIC SESSION and PANEL DISCUSSION :
THE MILLENNIUM: FIFTY YEARS OF COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS

NLPRS is considering organizing a millennium session and a panel
discussion on the issues and thoughts of what we have achieved and
what we may achieve over the fifty years of Computational Linguistics.
For instance, historical landmarks with positive influence on the
solutions of linguistic issues may need to be reinterpreted.  What
would be the implication of achievements so far?  On this topic,
NLPRS would like to encourage the submission of related papers.
In particular, government officials and scholars who created,
funded, and managed large-scale NLP projects are strongly urged
to join this panel discussion. The panel meeting will provide a
timely occasion to discuss successes and failures of large projects.

Those who wish to join the panel discussion on the topics stated
above are kindly requested to compile an email application with
a brief note of the opinion statement to the following address.

THEMATIC SESSION :
LANGUAGE PROCESSING AND THE INTERNET

One of the key terms opening the next century will be the Internet.
Linguistic ideas may need to be recast into internet primitives.
NLPRS99 plans to organize a session devoted to related themes;
papers addressing the following themes are welcome:

    - internet applications of NLP systems:
      computational models as well as case studies
    - general topics on group works:
      linguistic or non linguistic algorithms that foster group
      communications
