discourse, semantics, syntax, and the lexicon; phonetics, phonology,
and morphology; mathematical models and complexity; text understanding
and generation; multilingual NLP; machine translation, statistical
machine translation, machine-aided translation, translation memory
systems, translation aids and tools; text data mining; corpus-based
language processing; POS tagging; phrase identification; finite state
methods; efficiency of processing; parsing; grammatical frameworks;
electronic dictionaries; knowledge acquisition; terminology; term
recognition; term extraction; word-sense disambiguation; information
retrieval; cross-language information retrieval; information
extraction; named entity and mention detection; anaphora resolution;
coreference; relation extraction; unsupervised methods; text

The picturesque resort of Borovets is located in the Rila mountains
and is one of the best known winter resorts in South-East Europe, a
frequent meeting place for the elite in world skiing. The resort is

conference location at an inexpensive rate. A taxi from Sofia to
Borovets is relatively cheap; it is also possible to take a taxi from
the international airport in Sofia to the conference venue.


The main local organizer is the Linguistic Modelling Department,
Institute for Parallel Processing, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
( The conference is partially supported by the
European Commission via the project BIS-21++ "Bulgarian IST Centre of
Competence in 21 Century", INCO grant
