Call For Papers

Integration of multilingual resources and tools in Web applications

Modern Web applications are not only simple upload/download-repositories for documents but they are required to manage, intelligently retrieve, classify and summarize available information. Therefore there is an increased need of Web content management systems (WCMS) which implement techniques as text mining, information retrieval or automatic summarization.
Managing information on and for the Web means also that an additional dimension has to be considered: multilinguality.

A multilingual WCMS must not only be able to process content in different languages, but should provide mechanisms for cross-lingual retrieval and (semi-) automatic translation. It should be able to integrate and pipeline heterogeneous components for all involved languages and ensure robustness independent of particular domain of the documents.

These are challenging tasks, as usually language technology components are designed for a particular domain, have different input and output formats, require external resources and have varying execution times.

Recent European activities propose different solutions raising from implementation of Web services up to fully integrated language processing tools.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and users working on and with such types of systems and discuss approaches to:

− pro's and con's of using Web services within content management systems
− monolingual language processing chains integrating heterogeneous components
− minimal linguistic framework for assembling multilingual linguistic processing chains
− reusability of language processing chains
− frameworks for building language processing chains (UIMA, GATE etc.)
− performance versus quality in WCMS systems
− domain adaptability of language processing chains
The workshop is co-organised by ATLAS a Project funded by the European Commission under the CIP ICT Policy Support Programme. aiming at facilitating the multilingual Web content development and management, in particular the authoring, versioning and maintenance of multilingual Web sites.(
