Concept: Research in Natural Language Processing and Computational
Linguistics began over 50 years ago. Research in the 3 disciplines of
controlled languages, machine translation and data and sense mining has
however been done separately for the most part, and it would be useful
to combine these three disciplines. The primary objective of this
conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners in
controlled languages, machine translation and sense mining. 

Papers are invited from researchers, practitioners, end-users and
students in the following areas:
        Controlled Languages
        Machine Translation 
        Data and Sense Mining 
        Speech Recognition
        Speech Synthesis
        Natural Language Generation
        Anaphora Resolution
        Word Sense Disambiguation
        Text and Speech Interfaces 
        Information Extraction 
        Information Retrieval 
        Corpus Analysis 
        Need for standardisation and standards 
        Medical needs and applications 
        Aeronautic needs and applications 
        Civil security needs and applications 
        General security needs and applications 

There will be three categories of presentation of accepted papers:
        · orally 
        · poster 
        · by means of a demonstration 
There will be a special oral session reserved for students.
