[InetBib] Beitragsersuch: First NLP4DL Workshop

Beitragsersuch: Call for Papers

First NLP4DL Workshop
Viareggio, Italy
15 June 2009

Digital libraries represent a crucial contact point among traditional  
libraries, recent
advances in Information Technology, and Natural Language Processing 
technologies. In a
sense, digital libraries represent a *perfect* crossroads: they are mainly  
built out of
text, they are consulted by humans via natural language, and one of the major 
tools  for
accessing the information they hold, metadata, is a mix of structured and 
information. The First Natural Language Processing for Digital Libraries 
workshop, organised under the auspices of the CACAO project (eContentplus 
Programme of the
European Commission, ECP 2006 DILI 510035 CACAO), aims to collect all 
fundamental and
innovative research which is done in connection with Natural Language 
Technologies applied
to the digital libraries universe. The workshop will host invited speakers 
together with
talks/papers concerning:

-free text access to full-text digital libraries;
-access to digital resources via metadata;
-NLP techniques for harmonizing metadata in digital library (DL) federations;
-cross-language access to DLs;
-cross-language harmonization of metadata;
-discovery in DLs: hyperlinking, clustering, user-oriented categorization;
-management of digital collections via NLP-based algorithms;
-adaptation of linguistic resources to thematic DLs;
-fundamental issues: named entity extraction, word sense disambiguation, 

All abstracts papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted contributions will be 
on a CD at the workshop.  A volume from the conference will be published in 
Fall 2009.
Depending on the number of high quality submissions, a poster/demo session may 
also be held.
