               2nd Workshop on NLP and XML

                    Taipei, September 1, 2002


                      Final Call for Papers

    *** Paper submission deadline: May 5, 2002 ***

    The 2nd Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2002) will be held at
    COLING-2002 in Taipei on September 1, 2002. This workshop follows on
    from the 1st NLP and XML Workshop at NLPRS-2001 in Tokyo.

    The goal of the workshop is two-fold: (1) to provide a forum for
    presentation and discussion of XML use in natural language processing
    (including resource and software development, applications, tools,
    etc.); and (2) to clarify the "big picture" for natural language
    applications and resources vis a vis the XML framework and development
    of the Semantic Web. As such, the workshop is intended not only for
    those already using XML, but also for members of the NLP community who
    seek a fuller understanding of the motivations and implications of XML
    and related standards for the field.

    Workshop Topics

    Topics to be addressed include:

      - Position statements concerning the implications of XML, RDF, and
        the Semantic Web for NLP resources and applications, together with

      - XML use for linguistic annotation, including overall data
        architecture, implications for editorial practices, linkage
        mechanisms and issues for NLP data, etc.

      - Definition of data models and data categories for NLP using XML,
        RDF, etc.

      - XML standards for NLP;

      - XML-based generation (text, web pages, dialogue responses, etc.);

      - Use of XML mechanisms (schemas, XSL, XSLT, links, etc.) in
        specific applications/resources;

      - XML aware NLP tools.

    The program committee welcomes the submission of original, unpublished
    papers on any of the workshop topics and related issues.


    Papers must not exceed 8 pages, including references. The title page
    should include the title, authors' names, affiliations and email
    addresses, and a short abstract of no more than 10 lines.

    Please use the COLING-2002 style sheets available from

    All papers should be submitted in electronic form as PDF (preferred),
    PostScript, or MS Word files. Please convert PostScript or MS Word
    files to PDF if at all possible. Send your papers by email to
