Special Session on

Language Understanding and Communication


International Conference on Information Technology: Coding and
Computing ITCC 2004

The Orleans, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
April 5-7, 2004
Sponsored by IEEE computer Society


The huge tide of economic globalization provides to the Natural
Language Processing and Understanding Technology with great
opportunities as well as severe challenges. Since the first word was
uttered, people have searched for ways to communicate their ideas,
thoughts, and opinions to others.  Today, businesses are expanding
their borders, becoming more global, as they seek out new markets and
customer bases. With the pace of information transfer via fast PCs and
networks, this goal becomes quite a challenge.  Language Understanding
and Communication have become increasingly important in recent years
due to rapid advancements in the field of speech recognition, natural
language processing, Multi-lingual Multi-function Multi-media
intelligent systems, and knowledge engineering. This session serves as
an international forum for academic and industrial researchers and
practitioners to discuss the application of new computer technologies
to languages understanding and communication. The main objective of
this session is to bring together researchers to exchange ideas and
experience related to the fields. It will provide an international
forum for an overview of the most recent trends in the active research
fields and a common starting-point to tackle the most acute problems
of information processing and information technology.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Natural Language Understanding
Multi-lingual Multi-function Multi-media intelligent systems
Machine translation
Information retrieval
Spoken dialogue
Natural language interfaces
Information extraction
Text summarization
Adaptive interfaces
Terminology and ontologies
Lexical resources and corpora
Computer-assisted language learning
Speech modeling
Speech segmentation
Speech recognition
Text-to-speech synthesis
Document categorization
Natural language learning
WWW-based applications
E-commerce, education, entertainment
Knowledge representation
Text mining
Knowledge acquisition
Machine learning
Pattern recognition and automated scientific discovery
Soft computing and uncertainty management for data mining
Artificial intelligence



Authors are invited to submit papers describing in detail the original
contribution on the topics. Interested authors should send a draft
paper, formatted in the style ofIEEE Proceedings format, including
keywords, and a cover page listing the name, affiliation, complete
address, telephone, e-mail, and facsimile information for the
corresponding author, before October 30, 2003, to the Session
chair. Electronic submission (PostScript or PDF) is strongly

The Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society. A special
of an international journal of Information is being planned consisting
selected papers from the special session.
