   Workshop on Linguistic Tools and Resources
        for Spanish and Portuguese
               IBERAMIA 2004

Puebla, México
Noviembre 22-23, 2004

Web Site: http://ccc.inaoep.mx/~hrl_04/

The organizing committee of the Workshop on Linguistic Tools and Resources
for Spanish and Portuguese (http://ccc.inaoep.mx/~hrl_04/) invites
researchers and students related to this research area to participate with
proposals and works in this event.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum in order to improve the
cooperation between the iberoamerican groups interested in linguistic
technology, particularly for Spanish and Portuguese languages. Within the
goals of the event are the creation of joint protocols for development,
evaluation, comparison and interchange of linguistic tools and resources
for these languages.
Interest subjects turn around the design, building and use of linguistic
resources (LR) for Spanish and Portuguese, as well as tools for their
recollection and analysis. Following is a brief and not restricted list of
the related topics:

* Guidelines, standards, specifications, models and best practices for LR
* Methods, tools, procedures for the acquisition, creation, management,
access, distribution, use of LR
* Monolingual and multilingual LR for Spanish and Portuguese
* Multimodal and multimedia LR. Integration of various modalities in LR
(speech, vision, language)
* Exploitation of LR in different types of applications (information
extraction, information retrieval, vocal and multisensorial interfaces,
translation, summarisation, www services, etc.)

Deadline for paper submission: september 13, 2004
Notification of acceptance: september 27, 2004
Deadline for camera-ready papers: october 11, 2004

Submission Guidelines
Authors should format their papers according to the LNCS guidelines. Papers
may be written in Portuguese, Spanish or English, with a length between
four and eight pages. Paper submission will be done by e-mail to the
workshop e-mail address hrl_04_at_inaoep.mx
All papers received will be cross-reviewed by at least two referees in the
topical area. Accepted papers will be published in a local edition.
