Workshop on “Language Resources and Tools with Industrial Applications”

Conjoint with EUROLAN 2011 Summer School

August 30 – 31, 2011

Cluj-Napoca, Romania

The new information and communication technologies have changed the business management climate. Organizations use everyday technological innovations to become more competitive. With the rapid development of natural language processing techniques, as well as their use in ever more industrial applications, the link between companies and academia is more necessary than ever.

In this context, we invite researchers working in the field of NLP to submit papers for one of the following (and related) topics:

  • exploitation of multilingual resources, including corpora, lexicons, wordnets, and ontologies, in industrial environments;
  • development of natural language processing tools suited for the economic environment;
  • adaptation of natural language technologies for industrial applications;
  • advanced industrial applications based on cross-lingual applications, including machine;
  • translation, information retrieval, extraction and summarization, document indexing, natural language search engines, etc.;
  • technologies for chaining NLP components;
  • success stories of NLP-based industrial applications.

The Workshop on “Language Resources and Tools in Industrial Applications” will be held jointly with EUROLAN 2011. We expect to have two oral sessions for 1.5 hours each, in the first two days of EUROLAN 2011 summer school, namely August 30-31, 2011. The accepted papers will be presented in these oral sessions; each accepted paper will be given 15 minutes for presentation.

Submissions must describe substantial, original, and unpublished work, completed or work in progress. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, relevance to the school topics, and interest to the attendees.

Papers must be written in good English, having a maximum of 8 pages, including references. All papers must be formatted respecting the Springer LNCS guidelines. Please refer to Springer’s LNCS webpage www.springer.com/lncs under the Information for Authors.
