Call for Papers


Computational Linguistics in Human-Computer Interaction (CL-HCI2007)

Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences,
Beijing, China, May 27-30, 2007

 All accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Selected papers will also be published as special issues of appropriate journals. ==================================================================================================

 CL-HCI2007 in conjunction with and as a part of International Conference on Computational Science 2007

 Processing natural language -- arguably the most complex and higher level human-specific aspect -- is a very challenging topic in Computational Science. For a more advanced and evolved next-generation human-computer interaction (HCI) system, it is indispensable to integrate with it natural language processing (NLP) interface. To interpret and understand a user's intended command from his/her speech signal, series of processes such as speech recognition, parsing, semantic analysis, word sense disambiguation, etc. need to be performed. The proposed workshop focuses on such research topics common in Computational Linguistics and HCI. The workshop will provide also an opportunity for discussing and sharing participants' research experiences and outcomes.
