TOPICS OF INTEREST

Of interest are submissions on all topics relating to the design,
implementation
and application of controlled languages, including but not limited to:
human
communication protocols; controlled text authoring; conformance
checking
systems; controlled language authoring aids; memory-based authoring;
(re-)authoring combined with translation; issues in Controlled
Language design;
industrial experience and evolving requirements; quality and usability
evaluations of controlled language.

On the research front, we are grappling with issues like
standardization,
design, and evaluation of controlled language systems. On
implementation
issues, we are particularly interested in studies regarding author
productivity
and document usability. The workshop will give equal emphasis to the
academic,
corporate and industrial perspectives, while bringing together
researchers,
developers, users, and potential users of controlled language systems
from
around the world.

The one-day workshop will feature paper presentations.
