2003 Australasian Language Technology Workshop (ALTW2003)
Melbourne, Australia

Call for Papers

Workshop: 10th December 2003
Submissions due: 30th August 2003

NEW: The workshop programme is now available.

NEW: Register for ALTW2003.

Note: ALTW registration is coordinated with registration for the Australasian Language Technology Summer School (ALTSS), to make it easy for delegates to attend both events.


A one-day workshop on Natural Language Technology will be organised by the Australasian Language Technology Association (ALTA). The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Australasian Language Technology Summer School in Melbourne: http://www.conferences.unimelb.edu.au/alta/index.html/

The goals of the workshop are:

Our hope is to get as many Australasian LTers together as possible to encourage dialogue between those working on similar topics and between areas with a - perhaps as yet untapped - potential to interact.

We would also like to encourage non-Australasian LTers to submit papers, and to participate in the workshop.

Papers submitted to the workshop will be reviewed by an international programme committee, and the workshop proceedings will be published with an ISBN number.


We invite the submission of papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research on all aspects of natural language processing, including, but not limited to:

We welcome submissions on any topic that is of interest to the LT community, but we particularly encourage submissions that broaden the scope of our community through the consideration of practical LT applications. We especially invite people from industry working on LT to send us their submissions and offer an opportunity to discuss and demonstrate their latest applications in front of an informed audience.
