MALINDO 2008 Workshop

Submission Deadline Extended to April 7, 2008.

The Second International MALINDO Workshop (MALINDO2008)
12-13 June 2008
Multimedia University (MMU), Cyberjaya, Selangor, Malaysia



A considerable amount of research has been done on the processing of
Indonesian and Malaysian languages offering a variety of Computational
Linguistics (CL) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) resources
(dictionaries, thesauri, monolingual/parallel corpora, etc.), tools
(morphological analysers/generators, stemmers, spelling checkers,
syntactic parsers, etc.) and applications (machine translation,
information extraction, information retrieval systems,etc.). All these
valuable language resources, tools, and services are most of the time
ignored by the public and often not known by the researchers and students
working on these languages. This second MALINDO Workshop aims to bring
together researchers and practitioners, representing different
perspectives, to share and to exchange their ideas on the processing
of Indonesian and Malaysian languages. Thus, the organisers of the
workshop wants to highlight the effort and promising works done on the
processing of Indonesian and Malaysian languages in order to attract
more students to the CL and NLP fields and also to let all the NLP
communities in this World to be aware of their existence.

Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished papers on any
topic that is of interest to the processing of Malaysian and
Indonesian languages and its broad applications, for presentation at
the workshop and publication in the proceedings.

The workshop will be of interest to anyone working on the processing
– computational and theoretical point of view – of Indonesian and
Malaysian languages.

The MALINDO Workshop is organised by the Universiti Sains Malaysia
(USM, Penang, Malaysia), Universitas Indonesia (UI, Jakarta,
Indonesia), and National University of Singapore (NUS, Singapore).
The workshop is hosted by the Multimedia University (MMU, Cyberjaya,
Selangor, Malaysia).


The topics of the papers are requested to be in all areas related to
the processing – computational and theoretical point of view – of
Malaysian and Indonesian languages.

* Language resources development, acquisition, annotation,
and representation: dictionaries, thesauri, terminology, lexicons,
written and spoken corpora, grammars, ontology

* CL and NLP tools and techniques: spelling/grammatical/style checkers,
morphological analyser, stemmer, lemmatiser, part of speech tagger,
chunker, syntactic parser, word sense disambiguator, discourse
processing, text and speech alignment, text and speech segmentation,
term extraction and recognition, named entity extraction,

* CL and NLP applications: machine translation and translation aids,
information retrieval, information extraction, text summarisation,
term extraction, natural language generation, question translation
aids, information retrieval, information extraction, text
summarization, term extraction, natural language generation, question
answering, document categorization, language identification, speech
recognition, speech synthesis, character recognition, e-learning,


Paper submission due: 7 April, 2008
