Call for Papers

First NLP4DL Workshop
Viareggio, Italy
15 June 2009

Digital libraries represent a crucial contact point among traditional
libraries, recent advances in Information Technology, and Natural
Language Processing technologies. In a sense, digital libraries
represent a *perfect* crossroads: they are mainly built out of text,
they are consulted by humans via natural language, and one of the
major tools for accessing the information they hold, metadata, is a
mix of structured and unstructured information. The First Natural
Language Processing for Digital Libraries (NLP4DL) workshop, organised
under the auspices of the CACAO project (eContentplus Programme of the
European Commission, ECP 2006 DILI 510035 CACAO), aims to collect all
fundamental and innovative research which is done in connection with
Natural Language Technologies applied to the digital libraries
universe. The workshop will host invited speakers together with
talks/papers concerning:

-free text access to full-text digital libraries;
-access to digital resources via metadata;
-NLP techniques for harmonizing metadata in digital library (DL)
-cross-language access to DLs;
-cross-language harmonization of metadata;
-discovery in DLs: hyperlinking, clustering, user-oriented
-management of digital collections via NLP-based algorithms;
-adaptation of linguistic resources to thematic DLs;
-fundamental issues: named entity extraction, word sense
 disambiguation, translation disambiguation.

All abstracts papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted contributions
will be distributed on a CD at the workshop.  A volume from the
conference will be published in Fall 2009. Depending on the number of
high quality submissions, a poster/demo session may also be held.

Practical Information
The conference will be held in Viareggio, Italy on 15 June 2009. More
details will be available soon at the conference website at
