    First Call for Papers

    Computational Approaches to Semitic Languages

    University of Pennsylvania
    Thursday 11 July, 2002

    This workshop is a sequel to the workshop on Computational Approaches
    to Semitic Languages that was held at COLING98 in Montreal. Since that
    time, there have been various other workshops, but these have mostly
    turned out to be either rather applications-oriented, or rather
    language specific, or both. Whilst not neglecting applications, the
    present workshop aims to attract submissions that contribute
    significantly to theoretical insights concerning computational
    frameworks underlying the processing of Semitic languages in
    general. Morphology and/or phonology would seem to be promising areas
    of investigation in this sense. An effort will also be made to
    highlight submissions that concern a representative set of

    Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

    - Orthographic Representation
    - Morphological/Phonological Models
    - Speech Applications
    - Syntax, Parsing and Generation
    - Semantics
    - Acquisition of Language Resources
    - Corpora
    - Use of Machine Learning Techniques
    - Multilingual / Mixed Language Applications
    - Information Retrieval and Extraction
