Meeting Description:

The aim of this conference is to provide an overview of the state of the
art in research on lesser used languages, with special reference to their
computational support. 

Central to the conference are methodological issues such as:

* strategies for an efficient support of lesser used languages,
* problems with theoretical approaches developed for major languages when
applied to lesser used languages and
* the cultural, economical and political specificity of a user group for
which computational resources are created.

Furthermore, the conference intends to promote the networking among
participants in order to enhance the exchange of information, experience
and resources. 

Themes of conference:
We are soliciting original research papers on the following topics 

 * Lexicography for lesser used languages
 * Terminology for lesser used languages
 * Computer linguistic applications for lesser used languages
 * Corpora for lesser used languages
 * Translation Memory Systems for lesser used languages
 * On-line dictionaries for lesser used languages
 * Internet and lesser used languages
 * Computer Assisted Language Learning and lesser used languages
 * Lesser used languages and LSP
 * Linguistic tools (spelling-checker, syntax-checker etc.) for lesser used

Final Call for Abstracts

Members and non-members wishing to present a paper at ALT VI are asked to
e-mail a one-page abstract to the chair of the program committee, Lindsay
Whaley, to reach him no later than January 1, 2005. A second page may be
included with the abstract listing data.  The abstract itself should
contain no identification of the author.  A separate page should indicate
the title of the abstract, the name(s) of the author(s), and one mailing
address, with telephone, fax, and e-mail address as available.

The committee strongly encourages submissions by e-mail (preferably with
the abstract in pdf format and author information as part of the e-mail
text), but abstracts may also be sent by fax.  Authors are asked to check
their pdf files carefully to ensure that special characters are embedded

Submissions should be sent to:
lindsay.whaley at dartmouth.edu
(fax number: 1-603-646-9288)

The time allotted for presentation and discussion is 30 minutes. Members
may also submit abstracts for symposia, including the names of participants
and the amount of time requested. Participants may not be involved in more
than two abstracts, of which at most one may be single-authored. English is
the preferred language at the conference. Talks in other languages will be
accepted only at the discretion of the program committee.

By February 1, 2005 the program committee will convey its decision on
acceptance of papers to those submitting abstracts. The committee
consists of Balthasar Bickel, David Gil, Aditi Lahiri, Brian Migliazza, Uri
Tadmor and Lindsay Whaley (chair).


The ALT has a limited amount of funds to provide partial support for a
small number of participants attending the ALT VI meeting.

Financial support for ALT VI will be awarded on the basis of the following
two factors: (a) high quality of abstract; and (b) financial need of applicant.

Persons wishing to apply for financial support should include an
application for financial support when submitting their abstract. The
application should consist of a brief (one paragraph) statement explaining
why the applicant considers himself/herself to be in need of financial
assistance. No applications for financial support will be considered after
the January 1 deadline.

The ALT funds are intended for scholars from developing countries and for
students anywhere. Currently-employed professional linguists from affluent
developed countries should not apply.
