LREC Workshop (W2) for Controlled Natural Language Simplifying Language Use
May 27 (Tue) AM, 2014, Harpa Conference Centre, Reykjavik, Iceland
Workshop website: https://sites.google.com/site/lreccnl2014/
Call for Papers -
This workshop is a half-day forum for the collaboration and current
progress in the field of controlled natural language (CNL) and related
fields. The simplification of text for the sake of effective communication
can be applied for various purposes like the machine
translation, information management, knowledge acquisition from web data,
linked data fusion, language and content integrated learning (CLIL), etc.
It is also intended to discuss future shared tasks.
CNL has a long history due to its commercial impact as well as for its
effectiveness in applications like machine translation, librarianship,
information management, terminology management, mobile communication, legal
documents, etc. On the other hand, "text simplification" is also beneficial
for the efficient communication with respect to all kinds of language use
in the Web, e.g. simplified English Wikipedia. The current progress of
linked data also assumes a great potential for knowledge acquisition from
text and web data, for example, NLP2RDF and its NIF format. There is also a
working item on this topic in ISO/TC37 "Terminology and other language and
The workshop on CNL simplifying language use invites papers for the
current progress and results in the field of CNL and related fields on the
following topics but not limited to: models, processing algorithm,
terminology aspects, standardization, R&D projects, use cases, related
aspects in summarization, question and answering, machine translation, etc.
Particularly, this workshop intends to discuss about the standardization
issues and shared tasks in the topic of Controlled Natural Language
Simplifying Language Use.

When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to
provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also
technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the
work described in the paper or are a new result of your research.
Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs
(data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their reuse, replicability of
experiments, including evaluation ones, etc.
