NATURAL LANGUAGE SOFTWARE REGISTRY
There are now many natural language software projects, both commercial
and noncommercial. In order to facilitate the exchange and evaluation
of software, the University of Chicago's Center for Information and
Language Studies is undertaking to catalog projects for the community.
If you have developed a piece of software for natural language
processing that other researchers might find useful, you can help
us by describing it below. An electronic version of the form is preferred;
it is available by anonymous ftp to tira.uchicago.edu. Feel free to
write up software that is useful to you, even if you are not the
originator. Although the registry will be an ongoing project, we ask
that you please return the form by July 30 for existing software.
Results will be made available in this forum.
