AAAI-05 Workshop on Question Answering in Restricted Domains
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
http://www.clt.mq.edu.au/Events/Conferences/aaai05/

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

IMPORTANT DATES

    Submission:  April 20, 2005
    Notification:  May 11, 2005
    Camera ready:  May 18, 2005 
    Workshop:  July 9-10, 2005 (date TBA)

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

This one-day workshop will focus on the issues related to question
answering in restricted domains. Restricted domains provide an interesting
mix of challenges and opportunities that are yet to explore. For example,
the limited data available makes it difficult to apply conventional
question-answering techniques based on data redundancy and the specific
terminology of some domains typically is not available in generic lexical
resources. On the other hand, restricted domains enable the development of
specific ontologies or knowledge bases that can be used for high-precision
question answering tasks.

Note that there is an AAAI workshop on inference in textual question
answering. If you are wondering what workshop your research fits best,
please contact the organisers of any of these two workshops.

This workshop is a follow-up of the ACL 2005 workshop
http://www.clt.mq.edu.au/Events/Conferences/acl04qa/

TOPICS

    * Comparison between open-domain and restricted-domain QA

    * Characterisation of types of restricted domains and type of
      technology required for QA on those domains

    * Methodologies

    * Tools and resources

    * Description of specific restricted-domain QA systems

    * Development of modules (e.g. document preselection, NE
      extraction, terminology extraction) for use in restricted-domain
      QA systems

    * Portability of QA systems between different restricted domains

    * Evaluation

FORMAT OF WORKSHOP

The workshop includes an invited presentation, a set of full papers and
short papers, and a final discussion panel.

The invited presenter will address some of the questions posed above. The
emphasis is not so much about addressing the questions but about presenting
a challenging topic that encourages discussion.

There will be full papers and short papers. The full papers will focus on
the specific issues listed above, whereas the short papers can focus on
system descriptions or provide small contributions to the workshop goals.

The discussion panel includes 5-minute statements from leading researchers
in different related areas of expertise. The panel will be followed by a
discussion moderated by one of the workshop organisers.

ATTENDANCE 

We expect an attendance of 25-50 people from the areas of question
answering in open domains and restricted domains to allow for useful
comparison and generalisation. To encourage discussion and participation,
only invited people can attend. We therefore require potential participants
that do not wish to contribute with a paper to send an email to the
workshop organisers with a one-page description of their interest in the
topic and their position statements. The information will be used to
organise the final workshop discussion session.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Submitted papers should describe original work, completed or in progress,
rather than merely planned, and clearly indicate the current state of
advancement of the work.  No previously published papers should be submitted.

Authors should submit regular papers of maximum 10 pages or short papers of
maximum 5 pages, including references and figures, following the AAAI
technical reports guidelines. The review will not be blind.

Submissions must be in PS or PDF format only.
