*********** CALL FOR PAPERS ***********


Workshop on Text Mining and Applications

TeMA-2007 will be held at the 13^th Portuguese Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (EPIA 2007), in Guimarães, Portugal, 3-7 December 2007.
This workshop is organized under the auspices of the Portuguese
Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA).

[1] Workshop Description:

Pure symbolic methods for Language Processing alone are unable to
address human languages complexity. Text Mining and Machine Learning
techniques applied to text, raw or annotated, brought up new insights
and completely shifted the approaches to Human Language Technologies.
Both approaches, when duly integrated, bridge the gap between language
theories and effective use of languages, and enable important
applications. Our aim, with this workshop, is to bring together
innovative contributions to fill in this gap.

Authors are invited to submit their papers on any of the issues
identified below. Papers will be blindly reviewed by three members of
the Programme Committee. Best papers will be published at Springer, in
LNAI series. If there are additional papers whose quality is
sufficiently high for deserving to be presented at TEMA’07, those other
accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.

[2] Topics of Interest

Text Mining from raw and/or annotated text:

- Pattern extraction methodologies.
- Document Clustering/Classification.
- Document Summarization.
- Topic segmentation of documents.
- Word and Multi-word Sense Disambiguation.
- Semantic Restrictions extraction.
- Word and multi-word translation extraction.
- Algorithms and Data Structures for Text Mining.


- Natural Language Processing.
- Example-Based/Statistical Machine Translation.
- Intelligent Information Retrieval.
- Multilingual access to multilingual information.
- Question-Answering Systems.
- E-training and E-learning.
