Workshop: What can Natural Language Processing and Semantic Web  
technologies do for eLearning?
									June 24th, 2007

Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in  
Prague, Czech Republic. Address: Malostranske square 25 (Malostranske  
namesti 25)

								In conjunction with ACL 2007


The European project Language Technology for eLearning (LT4eL)  
exploits NLP techniques, language resources as well as Semantic Web  
technologies to improve the retrieval and the accessibility of  
learning material within a Learning Management System. More  
generally, we believe that eLearning can benefit enormously from the  
results achieved in these areas and it is for this reason that we  
think that it would be useful to bring together researchers from  
these various disciplines to exchange results, ideas and plans.

The workshop will provide a forum for interaction among members of  
these different research communities, and a means for attendees to  
increase their knowledge and understanding of the potential of  
Natural Language Processing, Language technology and the Semantic Web  
in eLearning.

The workshop will have the following goals:

    1. identify what Natural Language Processing, Language Technology  
and the Semantic Web vision can do for eLearning and what eLearning  
expects from results in these areas.
    2. identify strong and weak points of the technologies developed  
within Natural Language Processing, Language Technology and the  
Semantic Web (on the basis of the applications/projects discussed in  
the presentations) in order to assess to which extent they can be  
employed within eLearning and eventually come up with new solutions  
and ideas.

Presentations will be limited to the invited speakers but  
participation will be open to the public. Attendance is free, but  
registration is needed. Information on registration can be found on  
the webpage of the workshop, as well as the full programme:

Workshop Organization: Paola Monachesi (Utrecht University)
Local Organization: Vladisvlav Kubon (Charles University Prague)
