                   CALL FOR PAPERS

            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Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished papers on any topic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

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,
