Applications of Parallel and Comparable Corpora in
Natural Language Engineering and the Humanities

LREC 2010 post-conference workshop, 22 May 2010

Mediterranean Conference Centre, La Valletta, Malta

Deadline for submissions: February 19, 2010


We are inviting submissions for the third edition of the Workshop
on Building and Using Comparable Corpora. Comparable corpora are
collections of documents that are comparable in content and form
in various degrees and dimensions. This definition includes many
types of parallel and non-parallel multilingual corpora, but also
sets of monolingual corpora that are used for comparative purposes.

By bringing together researchers from several disciplines, including
natural language engineering and the humanities, the workshop
aims at showing the full breadth of research on comparable corpora.

We solicit contributions on a range of topics, including but not
limited to:

* Building Comparable Corpora

- Automatic and semi-automatic methods
- Methods to mine parallel and non-parallel corpora from the Web
- Tools and criteria to evaluate the comparability of corpora
- Parallel vs non-parallel corpora, monolingual corpora
- Rare and minority languages
- Comparisons across language families
- Multi-media/multi-modal comparable corpora

* Applications of Comparable Corpora

- Human translations
- Language learning
- Cross-language information retrieval & document categorization
- Bilingual projections
- (Statistical) machine translation
- Writing assistance

* Mining from Comparable Corpora

- Extraction of parallel segments or paraphrases from
comparable corpora
- Extraction of bilingual and multilingual translations of
single words and multi-word expressions, proper names,
named entities, etc.

Papers of no more than 10 pages and following the
LREC conference formatting details should be submitted
as a PDF file via the START conference manager at
Papers will be blind reviewed by at least two members
of the Programme Committee. Therefore, authors' names
and affiliations should not appear in the paper.
Accepted papers will be published in the workshop

This year, when submitting a paper from the START page,
authors will be asked to participate in a survey on the
use of language resources by providing essential information
about the resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies,
standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the
work described in the paper or are a new result of the research.
For further information on this new iniative, please refer to
