Call for paper: 'Natural Language Processing for Ancient Languages'

Guest editors: Joseph Denooz and Serge Rosmorduc

The TAL journal launches a call for papers for an special issue of the
journal on NLP for Ancient Languages.
« Ancient Languages » is here understood on a large basis: we consider both
dead languages (Akkadian, Ancient Egyptian, Latin...) and old stages of
modern languages (Old and Middle French...).

Proposals may deal with all aspect of computer storage and processing of
ancient languages, as for instance:
-automated morphological or syntactic analysis of ancient languages;
-text corpora (creation of a corpus, searches systems, etc.);
-encoding of ancient languages (scripting system, text representation,
unicode and ISO 10646, etc.);
-XML, TEI and ancient languages (use of XML to model ancient documents,
corpus representation, DTD or schemas for dictionaries) ;
-text capture, OCR and ancient texts, links between pictures corpora and
structured representations;
-NLP as a tool for the philologist (practical uses of NLP in the context of
philological or grammatical research).
-uses of NLP in teaching ancient languages.
-diachronic studies (models for language change, diachronic databases, etc.)

The Journal
TAL (Traitement Automatique des Langues / Natural Language Processing) is a
forty year old international journal published by ATALA (French Association
for Natural Language Processing) with the support of CNRS (National Centre
for Scientific Research). It has moved to an electronic mode of

This affects in no way its reviewing and selection process.
