The Organizing Committee of the Fifth International Workshop on Natural
Language Processing and Logic Programming invites the
submission of papers for NLULP5, in Lisbon, Portugal.
TOPICS OF INTEREST:
Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research
on all aspects of Logic Programming applications to computational
linguistics, including, but not limited to, the followings.
- syntax - parsing
- semantics - generation
- phonetics - language understanding
- phonology - speech analysis/synthesis
- morphology - computational lexicons
- discourse - electronic dictionaries
- pragmatics - terminology
- quantitative/qualitative linguistics - text database and retrieval
- mathematical linguistics - documentation
- contrastive linguistics - machine translation
- cognitive linguistics - machine aids for translation
- large text corpora - natural language interface
- text processing - dialogue systems
- hardware/software for NLP - multimedia systems
It will be nice to have in Lisbon Practical Applications of PROLOG in the
area of NLU, for demonstrating Prolog's attractiveness for this area.
REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSION:
Papers should have a maximum fifteen pages in final format, should be
written in English, and describe original work.
