First NLP4DL Workshop
Viareggio, Italy
15 June 2009

Digital libraries represent a crucial contact point among traditional
libraries, recent advances in Information Technology, and Natural Language
Processing technologies. In a sense, digital libraries represent a *perfect*
crossroads: they are mainly built out of text, they are consulted by humans
via natural language, and one of the major tools for accessing the
information they hold, metadata, is a mix of structured and unstructured
information. The First Natural Language Processing for Digital Libraries
(NLP4DL) workshop, organised under the auspices of the CACAO project
(eContentplus Programme of the European Commission, ECP 2006 DILI 510035
CACAO), aims to collect all fundamental and innovative research which is
done in connection with Natural Language Technologies applied to the digital
libraries universe. The workshop will host invited speakers together with
talks/papers concerning:

-free text access to full-text digital libraries;
-access to digital resources via metadata;
-NLP techniques for harmonizing metadata in digital library (DL)
-cross-language access to DLs;
-cross-language harmonization of metadata;
-discovery in DLs: hyperlinking, clustering, user-oriented categorization;
-management of digital collections via NLP-based algorithms;
-adaptation of linguistic resources to thematic DLs;
-fundamental issues: named entity extraction, word sense disambiguation,
translation disambiguation.

All abstracts papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted contributions will
be distributed on a CD at the workshop. A volume from the conference will
be published in Fall 2009. Depending on the number of high quality
submissions, a poster/demo session may also be held.

Practical Information
The conference will be held in Viareggio, Italy on 15 June 2009. More
details will be available soon at the conference website at
