The International Conference on the Computer Processing of Oriental Languages (ICCPOL) series is a regular international conference supported by the Chinese and Oriental Languages Society (COLCS), an international society founded in 1975. Recent ICCPOLs have been held in Hong Kong (1997), Tokushima, Japan (1999), Seoul, Korea (2001), Shenyang, China (2003), and Singapore (2006). This conference will be the 22nd gathering.
The conference serves as an international forum for linguists, computer scientists, information engineers and system users with interests in the computer processing and understanding of Oriental languages. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
1. Cross- and multilingual information processing
2. Text input methods
3. Document analysis and character recognition
4. Natural language processing
5. Machine translation
6. Information retrieval and extraction
8. Text Summarization
9. Multilingual computing
10. Speech recognition and synthesis
11. Language resources and evaluation
12. Text mining and knowledge discovery
13. Web-based applications
14. E-commerce, education and entertainment
Original papers presenting innovative ideas, design principles, theoretical analysis, implementation techniques, programming concepts, and experimental results are solicited.
The proceedings of the conference are planned to be published as a volume in the Springer LNCS/LNAI series. All submissions must therefore be formatted in accordance with the standard Springer style sheets ([LaTeX] [Microsoft Word]) and should be no more than 12 pages in length. Submissions should be in PDF format. Papers should be submitted electronically via: http://iccpol09.comp.polyu.edu.hk/myreview.
Selected best papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of the International Journal in Computer Processing of Languages (IJCPOL).
