*** 10th International Conference on applications of Natural Language
    to Information Systems  ***
*** NLDB 2005, 15-17 June 2005, Alicante (SPAIN) ****



Paper Submission: 22 January 2005
Notification:     16 February 2005
Camera-ready:     25 February 2005
Conference:       15-17 June 2005


Since 1995, the NLDB conference aims at bringing together researcher,
industrials and potential users interested in various application of
Natural Language in the Database and Information Systems field.

The integration of databases and natural language has been an utopia
for many years. However, progress has been made and this is now an
established field thanks to developments in Natural Language and
technologies that made the storage and manipulation of large
electronic dictionaries possible. As Information Systems are now
evolving into the communication area, the term databases should be
considered in the broader sense of information and communication

The use of Natural Language in Software Engineering has contributed to
both improving the development process from the viewpoints of
developers  (improve the process of conceptual modeling, validation,
etc) and the usability of applications


Authors should submit original manuscripts via the NLDB2005 Web site,
as  PostScript or PDF files.  The conference proceedings will be
published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series. Springer-Verlag publishes a full-text electronic
version of LNCS in  parallel with the printed version, so the
electronic source of accepted  papers will be required (LaTeX 2e
format is preferred). In addition a selection of the best papers will
be submitted to review and publications in a special edition of the
Journal of Data and Knowledge Engineering.


Papers are invited on recent, substantial, original, and unpublished
research on all aspects of Natural Language Processing related areas,
including, but not limited to the following topics:

* Natural Language for Web Information-Intensive Services (Semantic
  information retrieval, Semantic Web, Semi-structured models and
  associated languages, Web usage, content and structure mining for
  discovering semantics, Concept taxonomies and web mining,Learning
  taxonomies and ontologies from the web,Information extraction with
  machine learning, Document classification and indexation)

* Natural Language in Conceptual Modelling ( Analysis of natural
  language descriptions, Requirement engineering, Terminological
  ontologies, Dynamic modelling,Verification and consistency checking,
  Metadata harvesting)

* Natural Language Interfaces for Data Base Querying/Retrieval
  (Natural languages interfaces for database querying, Verification of
  database queries by paraphrasing, Semantic analysis for information
  retrieval, NL interaction with databases)

* Natural-Language-Based Integration of Systems (Linguistic aspects of
  view integration, Linguistic aspects of data warehouses, Natural
  language queries to multi-databases systems, Data integration and
  data cleansing, Ontology driven integration, Ontology management)

* Large-Scale Online Linguistic Resources (Electronic dictionaries,
  Question-answer corpora, Informal ontologies, Linguistic databases,
  Digital libraries)

* Applications of Computational Linguistics in Information Systems
  (Multilingual information systems,NLP in requirements engineering,
  NLP in knowledge management, Ontology-driven NLP, Semiotics and

* Management of Textual Databases (Text classification, Information
  extraction and detection, Text mining for creating metadata,
  Document management, Hypertext and Hyperbases)

* Natural language on data warehouses (DW) and data mining (DM)
  (Ontologies and conceptual modeling of DW's, Natural language
  interfaces for modeling and/or querying DW's,    XML,
  Semistructured, document data warehouses,Intelligent data
  warehouses, Natural language for text mining)

We welcome submissions on any topic that is of interest to the NLP
community, but we particularly encourage submissions that broaden the
scope of our community through the consideration of practical NLP
applications. We also invite people from industry working on NLP to
send us their submissions and offer an opportunity to discuss and
demonstrate their latest applications.

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. Simultaneous  submission to
other conferences is allowed provided it is  explicitly indicated on
the identification page.
