The EACL 2006 Workshop on CROSS-LANGUAGE KNOWLEDGE
INDUCTION will be hosted in conjunction with the 11th Conference of
the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics
that will take place April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, Italy.


* TOPICS

Knowledge of the behavior of words and text in other languages has
recently been used to help solving tasks in a first language.
Knowledge transfer across languages has also taken advantage of
resources already built for resource-rich languages like English.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: applications that
exploit parallel corpora, the induction of knowledge for resource-poor
languages based on resource-rich languages, the use of other languages
to solve tasks in a first language, the use of MT techniques for
knowledge induction, identifying and using cognate words between
languages, building and enriching wordnets by knowledge transfer,
exploiting multi-language wordnets for NLP applications, etc.
Demos of systems are encouraged.
