Scope and Main Theme
The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners to share ideas and experience in the generation of research products, design, and application development with reference to the theme ‘Towards Global Information Seeking and Knowledge Success’. The theme of CAMP’12 is centered within the range of areas chosen to give broad coverage of topic areas such as Information Retrieval, Computational Linguistic, and Knowledge Management. Advances in the field of the IR and KM has enabled useful information to be retrieved swiftly and efficiently from within massive data stores as well as ranking the results according to their significance.
However, there still exist challenges in global information access where natural and efficient communication with an automated system that influences World-Wide structured and unstructured data in any language is needed in order to satisfy human information needs. The rapid growth of the Internet and the surfacing of the information society, new challenges in language technology have also been triggered. The global web can be dominated with the support of multilingual tools for the purpose of indexing and navigating and the obstacles of language in systems for education, e-Commerce, and International Cooperation will be able to be overcome with the development of systems with crosslingual information and knowledge management.
