Meeting Description:

3rd International Workshop on Information Technologies: Status and
Opportunities for the Amazigh

This Workshop aims to be an occasion to gather researchers and
specialists to present work in relation to natural languages in
particular the Amazighe language. Let us find there an occasion to identify,
problems to be surmounted so that a language and a particular culture is
supported in the NTIC, and possible and standardized mechanisms to find solutions.

One of the main aims of this workshop is to discuss steps and
means which would allow a harmonious integration of the natural language in
computer tools, in particular the Amazigh language. It also aims to
increase interest of specialists and researchers to the field of human
linguistic technologies (TLH) applied to Amazigh. To privilege a profitable
exchange, we propose to debate the following axes which integrate
theoretical, methodological aspects and practices of :

1. Cultural diversity and NTIC.
2. Data-processing management of the multilingualism
3. Feasibility of the data-processing localization
4. Data-processing standards of treatment of the languages.
5. The data-processing coding of languages
6. Translation tools and techniques applied to the NTIC.
7. Linguistic engineering.
8. Collect and numerical stock management
9. Electronic dictionaries

The workshop wants to be also an opportunity for experts, researchers
and various actors to discuss relative questions with the blooming of
the natural language and its integration in the NTIC. The workshop will be as
well an occasion to pay a particular homage to the eminent professor Lahbib
Zenkouar for his important contribution to Amazigh culture.
