Call for Papers

The Third International MALINDO Workshop (MALINDO2009)
2 August 2009
Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Singapore
(An official ACL-IJCNLP 2009 co-located event, http://www.acl-ijcnlp-2009.org/)

A considerable amount of research has been done on the processing of Malaysian
and Indonesian languages offering a variety of Computational Linguistics (CL)
and Natural Language Processing (NLP) resources (dictionaries, thesauri,
monolingual/parallel corpora etc.), tools (morphological analysers/generators,
stemmers, spelling checkers, syntactic parsers, etc.) and applications (machine
translation, information extraction, information retrieval, etc.). All these
valuable language resources, tools, and services are most of the time ignored by
the public and often not known by the researchers and students working on these

Thus, the organisers of the workshop want to highlight the effort and promising
works done on the processing of Malaysian and Indonesian languages in order to
attract more students to the CL and NLP fields and also to let all the NLP
communities in this World be aware of their existence. The MALINDO workshop is
organized by the National University of Singapore (NUS, Republic of Singapore),
Universitas Indonesia (UI, Jakarta, Indonesia), and Multimedia University (MMU,
Cyberjaya-Malacca, Malaysia).

Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished papers on any topic that
is of interest to the processing of Malaysian and Indonesian languages and its
broad applications, for presentation at the workshop and publication in the

Topics of Interest

processing - computational and theoretical point of view - of Malaysian and
Indonesian languages.

dictionaries, thesauri, terminology, lexicons, written and spoken corpora,

retrieval, information extraction, text summarisation, term extraction, natural
language generation, question translation aids, information retrieval,
