*****************FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS*********************


A Workshop held in Conjunction with the 2001 Joint Conference on Digital
June 28, 2001
Roanoke, Virginia

Phrase browsing applications provide information seekers with access to
text content via structured lists of index terms. These lists provide a
preview of the content of a collection. The index terms, which may be
identified by a variety of techniques, are phrases that represent
important concepts referred to in a document or collection of documents.
The browsing system supports interactive navigation and organization of
the phrases.

Browsing systems are distinct from systems based on ontologies because
phrases are drawn automatically from the text of the collection itself,
and do not necessarily correspond to taxonomies of the collection content.
For this reason, phrase-browsing systems can be easily integrated with
full-text search.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in
any aspect of phrase browsing technology, including, but not limited to,
identification of index terms, techniques for hierarchical organization of
the terms, implementation of efficient systems, usability of browsing
applications, and techniques for evaluating this technology.

Paper submission:
Long papers of up to 6 pages and short papers of up to 2
pages are solicited. An extended abstract (3 pages for long papers, 1 page
for short papers)  should be submitted to one of the Co-chairs by April 1,
2001.  Notification of acceptance will be made by April 20, 2001. Final
papers must be submitted by May 31, 2001. Papers should be in the ACM
