Subject: Workshop on Multilingual Lexical Databases, Japan

 Workshop on Multilingual Lexical Databases PAPILLON-2003
		 Second announcement (February 2003)

Detailed announcement (in French, Japanese and English) at

 Venue: Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan
 Dates: 3-5 July 2003
 Language: English

 Submission deadline: 31 March 2003
 Notice of acceptance: 19 May 2003
 Final version due: 9 June 2003

Multilingual lexical databases are databases for structured lexical
data which can be used either by humans e.g. to define their own
dictionaries or by natural language processing (NLP) applications.

The 2003 Papillon workshop, the fourth in a series of workshops
organized every year by the Papillon members, will aim at identifying
problems relevant to the multilingual- lexical-database community.
The workshop aims to promote exchanges between practitioners from
several fields and is thus open to anybody working in a domain
pertaining to lexical databases such as: databases, man-machine
interface for dictionaries, data annotation, XML, standardization of
dictionaries or lexical data; lexicography, translation, computational
linguistics, etc.

Contributions are welcome on the following items:

 * databases
 * lexical data
 * human use and NLP use of multilingual lexical databases

Contributions are encouraged which focus more on the
Papillon project:

 * Meaning-text theory and lexicography
 * proposals for collaboration with the Papillon project
 * summary/state of collaboration with the Papillon project
