TICAM 2012 : The 5th International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies for Amazigh
Call For Papers
TICAM, the international conference on Amazigh along with information and communication technologies, is a biannual event held at the Royal Institute of the Amazigh Culture (IRCAM) by Computer Science Studies, Information Systems and Communications Center (CEISIC).
Since 2004, TICAM became the meeting place for scientists, researchers and professionals interested on information and communication technologies applied to natural languages, and particularly to the Amazigh language. This conference aims to highlight national and international research, to promote young researchers’ works, as well as to provide a representative overview of the state of the art in order to offer promising prospects for the development of this domain.
The fifth edition of this conference will be an opportunity to hear from keynote speakers about theoretical, experimental and applicative advances in their fields of research. Furthermore, this event will be an occasion to organize demonstration workshops to bring to light the challenges of natural language processing and to discuss the new trends of information and communication technologies applied to the Amazigh language during the oral sessions and posters’ presentations.

- Languages’ Data-processing standards
