Call For Papers: info-plosion Event: Natural Language Processing Challenges in the Information Explosion Era

A New info-plosion Event
info-plosion (info-plosion began in 2005 and runs through March 2011).

Conference Call For Papers: NLP Challenges in the Information Explosion Era (NLPIX 2008)
Under the umbrella of Workshops on Language-centric Web Applications, Beijing, China, April 22, 2008

The amount of information available on the Web has increased rapidly, reaching levels that few would ever have imagined possible. We live in what could be called the "information-explosion era," and this situation poses new problems for computer scientists. Users demand useful and reliable information from the Web in the shortest time possible, but the obstacles to fulfilling this demand are many including language barriers and the so-called "long tail." Even worse, users may provide only vague specifications of the information that they actually want, so that a more concrete specification must somehow be inferred by Web access tools.

Natural language processing (NLP) is one of the key technologies for solving the above Web usability problems. Almost all information on the Web is provided in the form of natural language texts, and so in order to offer solutions to these problems we must perform searching and extracting information from the Web texts using NLP technologies. The aim of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners together in order to discuss our most pressing needs with respect to accessing information on the Web, and to discuss new ideas in NLP technologies that might offer viable solutions for those issues.
