                           CALL FOR PAPERS

       The Second International MALINDO Workshop (MALINDO2008)

                           12-13 June 2008

      Multimedia University (MMU), Cyberjaya, Selangor, Malaysia




A considerable amount of research has been done on the processing of
Indonesian and Malaysian languages offering a variety of Computational
Linguistics (CL) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) resources
(dictionaries, thesauri, monolingual/parallel corpora, etc.), tools
(morphological analysers/generators, stemmers, spelling checkers,
syntactic parsers, etc.) and applications (machine translation,
information extraction, information retrieval systems,etc.). All these
valuable language resources, tools, and services are most of the time
ignored by the public and often not known by the researchers and
students working on these languages. This second MALINDO Workshop aims
to bring together researchers and practitioners, representing
different perspectives, to share and to exchange their ideas on the
processing of Indonesian and Malaysian languages. Thus, the organisers
of the workshop wants to highlight the effort and promising works done
on the processing of Indonesian and Malaysian languages in order to
attract more students to the CL and NLP fields and also to let all the
NLP communities in this World to be aware of their existence.

Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished papers on any
topic that is of interest to the processing of Malaysian and
Indonesian languages and its broad applications, for presentation at
the workshop and publication in the proceedings.

The workshop will be of interest to anyone working on the processing -
computational and theoretical point of view - of Indonesian and
Malaysian languages.

The MALINDO Workshop is organised by the Universiti Sains Malaysia
(USM, Penang, Malaysia), Universitas Indonesia (UI, Jakarta,
Indonesia), and National University of Singapore (NUS, Singapore).
The workshop is hosted by the Multimedia University (MMU, Cyberjaya,
Selangor, Malaysia).


The topics of the papers are requested to be in all areas related to
the processing - computational and theoretical point of view - of
Malaysian and Indonesian languages.

* Language resources development, acquisition, annotation, and
  representation: dictionaries, thesauri, terminology, lexicons,
  written and spoken corpora, grammars, ontology

* CL and NLP tools and techniques: spelling/grammatical/style
  checkers, morphological analyser, stemmer, lemmatiser, part of
  speech tagger, chunker, syntactic parser, word sense disambiguator,
  discourse processing, text and speech alignment, text and speech
  segmentation, term extraction and recognition, named entity

* CL and NLP applications: machine translation and translation aids,
  information retrieval, information extraction, text summarisation,
  term extraction, natural language generation, question translation
  aids, information retrieval, information extraction, text
  summarization, term extraction, natural language generation,
  question answering, document categorization, language
  identification, speech recognition, speech synthesis, character
  recognition, e-learning,
