Call for Papers

Call Deadline: 16-Mar-2009
Due Due to numerous requests, the paper submission deadline has been extended to
March 16, 2009.

The International Workshop on Intelligent Linguistic Technologies 2009
ILINTEC'09 will be held as part of the ICAI'09 Conference (International
Conference in Artificial Intelligence 2009).

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by CSREA
Press (Computer Science Research, Education and Advanced Technologies Association).

The core idea of ILINTEC'09 is to bring together researchers who explore
different paradigms of language and speech processing; special emphasis is laid
on interaction of stochastic techniques and logical methods. ILINTEC'09 is a
unique opportunity to discuss the problems of natural language processing in
immediate contact with the leading research and development teams from
universities and industry engaged in information technology projects and various
fields of Computer Science.

The Scope of the Workshop:
The workshop is centered around but not limited to the topics given below:
machine translation;
text retrieval;
information extraction;
applications of machine learning to speech and language processing;
neural networks for speech and language structures recognition;
algorithms of morphological and syntactic analysis of natural languages;
word class and part-of speech tagging for text corpora;
parsing with context-free grammars, unification grammars, etc.;
lexicalized and probabilistic parsing;
meaning representation, semantic analysis;
word sense disambiguation and information retrieval;
reference resolution;
natural language generation
