Call for Papers

Special Issue on Text Processing for Information Access

The IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems announces a
forthcoming Special Issue on Text Processing for Information
Access to be published in September 2003.

Technologies for accessing information appropriately and efficiently
are extending their fields in various directions.  Information retrieval
technologies have expanded their objects to Web and patent
information from traditional newspaper articles and technical papers,
and have been trying to cross language boundaries.  Such technologies
are not limited to information retrieval, but include various text
processing technologies such as automatic text summarization that
condenses fat documents to a compact form and question answering
that identifies concise answers to given questions reflecting users'
interests and perspectives.  Several attempts such as NTCIR and TREC
for evaluating those technologies and accumulating the research
resources have been conducted and have had a lot of eager participants.
Considering these circumstances, this special issue aims to introduce
and demonstrate research activities on Text Processing for Information
Access, and to disseminate research in those areas.

Possible topics include, but not limited to:
Automatic Text Summarization, Question-Answering, Information Retrieval,
Cross-Language Information Retrieval, Patent Retrieval, Web Retrieval,
Information Extraction, Named Entity Extraction, Text Processing,
Test/Data Collection, Common Evaluation Infrastructure

Prospective authors are requested to send four copies of manuscripts
 (the length is recommended within 8 printedpages) to the following
address by November 29, 2002.
The top of a first page should be marked with "Special Section on Text
Processing for Information Access" in red ink.
