Meeting Description:

The topic of the workshop addresses Natural Language Processing (NLP) for the
Balto-Slavonic languages. The NLP tasks include, but are not limited to,
morphological analysis and generation, tagging, named-entity recognition,
information extraction, co-reference resolution, question-answering, information
retrieval, text summarisation, machine translation. Research on these topics in
the context of Balto-Slavonic languages is still in its early stage and is
progressing relatively slowly. Due to specific linguistic phenomena, such as
rich inflection and relatively free word order, a construction of language
processing tools for these languages is an intriguing and challenging task.

Balto-Slavonic Natural Language Processing - BSNLP 2009
Second International Workshop
Cracow, Poland
15 June 2009

This year BSNLP is co-located with the IIS 2009 (Intelligent Information
Systems) conference.

Topic and Motivation
The recent political and economic changes in Central and Eastern Europe and the
related on-going enlargement of the European Union brings into focus new
cultures and languages. Among them, the languages from the Balto-Slavonic group
have an outstanding role because of their rich cultural heritage and the
widespread use: over 400 million speakers.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
working on NLP for Balto-Slavonic languages. The workshop will give an
opportunity to exchange ideas and experience, to discuss hard-to-tackle problems
in this field of research, and to make available resources more widely known.

This workshop is a follow-up to the successful first BSNLP 2007 workshop held in
conjunction with the ACL 2007 conference in Prague. In particular, we would
strongly encourage submissions describing systems, resources or solutions that
are made available to the wider public, as this would help to promote
computational linguistics applications for these languages.

Areas of Interest
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

A. Specific challenges for Balto-Slavonic NLP in the context of:
- text segmentation
- morphological analysis
- morphology models
- morpho-syntactic disambiguation
- named-entity recognition
- named-entity dissambiguation
- named-entity lemmatisation
- name variant recognition and merging
- term and keyword extraction
- syntactic parsing and chunking
- co-reference resolution
- word sense disambiguation
- corpus-based knowledge acquisition
- information extraction
- question answering
- machine translation
- text summarisation
- text classification
- information retrieval
- linguistic processing in search engines 

B. Multilingual frameworks applied to these languages
- tools and resources (freely available for research purposes will be preferred)
- experience with, and evaluation of, linguistic data and processing resources
-comparative evaluation between languages
- encoding standards and formats 

We expect two kinds of submissions: full papers and short papers

Long papers should describe original unpublished work and should indicate the
state of completion of the reported results. In particular, an overlap with
previously published work should be clearly mentioned. The authors should
indicate in the abstract of their submission if the paper has been submitted
Short papers should describe work in progress and/or interactive software demos.

All submissions, both of long and short papers, will be judged on correctness,
novelty, technical strength, clarity of presentation, usability, and
significance/relevance to the workshop. Submissions will be reviewed by at least
3 members of the Program Committee. The reviewing will be blind. Therefore, the
paper should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore,
self-citations and other references that could reveal the author's identity
should be avoided.

The final papers are to be prepared using LaTeX. Please download the zipped
archive with files needed to process your document: iis4authors.zip. Both class
files and an example of use are contained in the archive. Please follow all the
recommendations given in the example.

Submission will be electronic. The only accepted format for submitted papers is
Adobe PDF. Papers must be submitted no later than March 15, 2009 using the
submission webpage.

The page limit for long papers is 14 pages, whereas short papers / software demo
descriptions are limited to 7 pages.

Workshop proceedings in electronic form will be distributed at the workshop.
They will be available on-line after the workshop.
Additionnaly, the accepted long papers will be published along with the main IIS
2009 conference papers in a monograph form.

Important Dates
- Paper submissions due: 15.03.2009
- Notification of acceptance: 13.04.2009
- Camera-ready versions due: 4.05.2009

Kraków (Cracow) is one of the largest and the oldest cities in Poland. Nowadays

Meeting Description:

Specialtemaet for NORDTERM 2009 er udarbejdelse og anvendelse af ontologier og
taksonomier, især hos organisationer og offentlige myndigheder i de nordiske
lande. P.t. er der et stort behov for terminologer hos det offentlige, hvor
bl.a. terminologiske ontologier bliver brugt til optimering af
databasearkitektur, i digitale forvaltningssystemer, til afklaring af
virksomhedernes interne/eksterne terminologi og meget mere. 

Call for Papers

Arrangementet samler terminologer og terminologiinteresserede fra såvel
forskningsinstitutioner som erhvervsliv og offentlige institutioner i hele Norden. 

Der vil blive inviteret en række udenlandske undervisere og foredragsholdere til
hhv. kurset og konferencen. Herudover indkaldes indlæg fra forskere og udøvende
terminologer til konferencen. 

Vi modtager 

Indlæg om terminologiarbejde, især i de nordiske lande 
Teoretisk orienterede indlæg fra forsknings- og uddannelsesinstitutioner 
Praktisk orienterede indlæg fra virksomheder og organisationer 
Indlæg om ontologier, onotologiværktøjer og anvendelse af ontologier 

Konferencesprog: dansk, norsk, svensk og engelsk. Der søges midler til tolkning
mellem finsk, dansk og svensk, og hvis der opnås finansiering, vil også finsk
være konferencesprog. 

Der indsendes et kort abstract på højst 1 A4 side (ca. 2.250 tegn), inklusive
titel på foredraget, navn(e) på foredragsholder(e) og tilhørsforhold samt evt.
referencer. Abstractet skal skrives på dansk, norsk, svensk eller engelsk og
sendes pr. e-mail til nordterm.isv at cbs.dk. 

Alle abstracts vil blive offentliggjort på konferencens websted inden konferencen. 

Frist for indsendelse af abstracts er 30. marts 2009.
