Meeting Description:

6th International MALINDO Workshop (MALINDO2012)
21 June 2012
Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS)
Kota Samarahan, Sarawak, Malaysia

A considerable amount of research has been done on the processing of South East Asian languages offering a variety of Computational Linguistics (CL) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) resources, tools and applications. All these valuable language resources are most of the time ignored by the public and often not known by the researchers and students working on these languages. MALINDO, as an annual international workshop, aims to bring together researchers and practitioners, representing different perspectives, to share and to exchange their ideas on the processing of South East Asian languages. Because of the venue of the 2012 Workshop, the Organisers of MALINDO will anticipate papers related to the processing of the varieties of Borneo languages. MALINDO's objective is to highlight the effort and promising works done on the processing of the South East Asian languages, thus attracting more students to the CL and NLP fields.

The MALINDO workshops are co-organized by three South East Asian universities: Universitas Indonesia (Depok, Indonesia), the National University of Singapore (NUS, Singapore), and Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS, Malaysia).
