FLAIRS 2011 Special Track on Applied Natural Language Processing

Held in conjunction with the
24th International FLAIRS Conference

Palm Beach, Florida, USA, May 18-20, 2011

The track on Applied Natural Language Processing (ANLP), within FLAIRS, is a forum for researchers working in natural language processing(NLP)/computational linguistics(CL) and related areas. The rapid pace of development of online materials, most of them in textual form or text combined with other media (visual, audio), has led to a revived interest for tools capable to understand, organize and mine those materials.

Theme of the Symposium

This event will focus on using web collaboration and pedagogic applications
of corpora in order to strengthen authentication in language learning and
teaching. Emphasis is thus on both content and communication-based learning
activities and on how computer mediated communication (CMC) and corpus
methodologies can be pedagogically integrated.

Our aim is to take stock of the current state of affairs in corpus and
CMC-based language learning and teaching. Special attention will be given to
the needs of 'young' researchers in the field. The language of the symposium
is English, but we welcome contributions for all languages.

Pathway lectures will be offered by Ana Frankenberg, Steven Thorn and Bernd
