    We are pleased to announce


    to 8th March for submissions to the

    International Workshop on "Computational Approaches to Collocations"

       22., 23. July 2002 Vienna, Austria

         Ulrich Heid (IMS Stuttgart, Germany)

    Workshop description:

    "Computational Approaches to Collocations" will be a two day workshop with paper presentations and special topic sessions. The scope of the workshop will cover computational models and strategies for collocation identification and their use in computational linguistic applications. For more information see

    The workshop is intended to complement the EURALEX Workshop on "Lexicographic applications of computational approaches to collocations: Restricted collocations in dictionaries" chaired by Geoffrey Williams and Ulrich Heid (see

    Papers are invited on all computational aspects of identifying and processing lexical collocations, including, but not limited to:
    statistics-based and hybrid methods on collocation identification, the development and testing of association measures, the discussion of significance versus relevance of identification results, the application of collocations in information extraction, in machine translation, in the development of lexical resources, in the evaluation of smoothing methods, etc.
