                        Coling-ACL '98 Workshop
 
                   MULTILINGUAL INFORMATION MANAGEMENT:
                   CURRENT LEVELS AND FUTURE ABILITIES
 
                           August 16, 1998
                       Universite de Montreal
                           Montreal/Canada
 
 
The Coling/ACL workshop on Multilingual Information Management is a
follow-on to an NSF-sponsored workshop held in conjunction with the
First International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation in
Granada, Spain (May 1998).  The goal of the workshop was to consider the
recent history and likely near-term future of a number of research areas
pertaining to language that are related (but still semi-independent at
present).  The conclusions have been gathered into a report, to be
submitted to the NSF, LE, and other funding agencies in Europe and North
America, for their consideration in setting funding policies and goals.
 
              THE DRAFT REPORT IS NOW AVAILABLE AT
 
                http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~ref/mlim/
 
At the Granada workshop, an international panel of invited experts
focused on a set of questions in an attempt to identify the most likely
and most effective future directions of computational linguistics
research --especially in the context of the need to handle multi-lingual
and multi- modal information.
 
The COLING workshop, a follow-on, has the aim of opening the discussion
to the computational linguistics community as a whole, to solicit the
comments, additions, feedback, and contributions of everyone.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
 
The development of natural language applications which handle multi-
lingual and multi-modal information is the next major challenge facing
the field of computational linguistics.  Over the past 50 years, a
variety of language-related capabilities has been developed in areas
such as machine translation, information retrieval, and speech
recognition, together with core capabilities such as information
extraction, summarization, parsing, generation, multimedia planning
and integration, statistics-based methods, ontologies, lexicon
construction and lexical representations, and grammar.  The next few
years will require the extension of these technologies to encompass
multi-lingual and multi-modal information.
 
Extending current technologies will require integration of the various
capabilities into multi-functional natural language systems.  However,
there is today no clear vision of how these technologies could or should
be assembled into a coherent framework.  What would be involved in
connecting a speech recognition system to an information retrieval
engine, and then using machine translation and summarization software to
process the retrieved text? How can traditional parsing and generation
be enhanced with statistical techniques?  What would be the effect of
carefully crafted lexicons on traditional information retrieval?
 
The workshop is organized as a series of discussion sessions, each one
devoted to one aspect of computational language, initiated by a report
of the discussions at the Granada workshop (a report summarizing the
discussions at Granada is available; see below).  Enough time for
discussion has been scheduled.  The discussion will focus on the
following fundamental questions:
 
   1. What is the current level of capability in each of the major
      areas of the field dealing with language and related media of
      human communication?
   2. How can (some of) these functions be integrated in the near
      future, and what kind of systems will result?
   3. What are the major considerations for extending these functions
      to handle multi-lingual and multi-modal information,
      particularly in integrated systems of the type envisioned in (2)?
 
In particular, we will consider these questions in relation to the
following areas:
 
 o multi-lingual resources (lexicons, ontologies, corpora, etc.)
 o information retrieval, especially cross-lingual and cross-modal
 o machine translation, of text and speech
 o automated (cross-lingual) information extraction and summarization
 o methods and techniques (both statistics-based and linguistics-based)
 o speech recognition and synthesis
 o multimedia communication, as well as language and speaker identification
 o evaluation and assessment techniques for each of these areas
 o Government policy for future funding
 
The initial findings of the report will form the basis of the
discussion.  The draft report is now available at
 
                http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~ref/mlim/
 
Major points raised in the discussions will be recorded and included in
the report.  We eagerly seek your feedback, comments, contributions, and
assistance, to make this report as comprehensive and as accurate as
possible!
