Call for Papers


12th International Conference on

Applications of Natural Language to Information Systems


June 27-29, 2007, CNAM, Paris, France


Since 1995, the NLDB conference has aimed at bringing together
researchers, industrials and potential users interested in various
applications of Natural Language in the Database and Information
System area. Natural Language Processing has become an important
factor in the field of Information and Communication systems in the
last years. It has contributed to both improving the development
process from the viewpoints of the developers (e.g. the process of
requirements engineering, conceptual modeling, validation etc.) and
the usability of applications (e.g. natural language query interfaces,
retrieval, semantic web etc.) To underline these inspiring
connections, NLDB 2007 will take place from June 27 to June 29 in
Paris (France).


Topics of Interest

NLDB 2007 invites researchers to submit papers on recent, unpublished
research on all aspects of Natural Language Processing related to
information systems. The Program Committee also encourages people from
the industry to submit papers reporting on industrial Natural Language
projects. Contributions are welcome in, 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 Modeling: Analysis of Natural
  Language Descriptions, Requirement Engineering, Terminological
  Ontologies, Paraphrasing, Dynamic Modeling, Verification,
  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
