   First Call for Participation


Seventh Biennial Summer School




July 25 - August 6, 2005

"Babes-Bolyai" University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

    A truly global society will rely heavily on access to information
that can accommodate multiple cultures and languages. To enable this,
researchers in language technology are developing resources and
applications to support a multilingual web that will ensure the
requisite trans-lingual capabilities.

    The EUROLAN 2005 summer school will provide two weeks of intensive
study of the technologies and resources currently under development to
support multilingual processing, as well as the applications that
exploit them to enable multilingual access to information disseminated
via the web.  Internationally known scholars and researchers involved
in leading-edge work in relevant areas will serve as professors at the
school, giving half- and full-day seminars and hands-on labs to
provide students with in-depth understanding and experience. Topics to
be covered in the school include the following:

- creation and exploitation of multilingual resources, including
corpora, lexicons, wordnets, and ontologies;

- multilingual alignment of syntax, semantics, discourse, and other
language phenomena;

- annotation of various phenomena in multiple languages, including
word senses, time annotations, anaphora;

- annotation transfer, enabling importing in new languages of
knowledge encoded in the mark-up for English, etc.;

- cross-lingual applications, including machine translation,
information retrieval, extraction and summarization, document
indexing, etc.;

- the multilingual "knowledge web", its philosophy, state of the art,
needs, and vision for the future.
