    • eLearning for Computational Linguistics and Computational Linguistics for eLearning International Workshop to be held in conjunction with COLING 2004 Geneva, August 28th, 2004 This workshop focuses on the relation between Computational Linguistics and eLearning within two sessions. 1. eLearning for Computational Linguistics With the SOCRATES thematic network project "Advanced computing in the Humanities" the need for information technologies, and, in particular, eLearning in the humanities, including CL, has been identified. The survey which has been launched revealed the interest in high-quality teaching material and (distance) courses. On the occasion of a conference and a workshop, both held 1998 and 1999 resp., first results were presented in the form of project notes. Furthermore, didactic issues which concern (distance) teaching and learning of computational linguistics and language technology were raised. In the meanwhile, various projects have provided high-quality teaching material and (distance) courses for various disciplines of Computational Linguistics, like ELSNET and MiLCA. This part of the workshop should give practioners in the field the opportunity * to share didactic experience of eTeaching CL, * to identify and to disseminate good practice models and resources, * to share novel approaches to eLearning in CL, and * to discuss curricular issues. 2. Computational Linguistics for eLearning In the context of computer-mediated distance learning, language technology can help to enhance the accessibility of online teaching material and the adaptivity of learning management systems. * In the context of computer mediated communication, language technology can be applied for, e.g, summarization of discussion threads and support of discourse coherence in synchronous CMC * In the context of accessibility and usability of online teaching material, language technology can be applied for, e.g., - matching of semantic representations of learning modules on the one hand and the prospective user's knowledge of the topic on the other hand; - facilitation of access to learning material by more flexible and sophisticated search methods; - improvement of retrieval by supplying metadata for learning objects on a (semi)-automatic basis; - adaptive components which adjust the system to particular users, e.g adaptation of learning management systems for disabled persons, taking into account their special needs. With this part of the workshop, we want to further address the role which language technology plays in the development of intelligent platforms for eLearning. We want to particularly encourage submissions by scholars and software developers who present implemented and working eLearning systems in which language technology supplies a crucial part of the implemented solution. The entire workshop constitutes an informal forum for researchers and teachers to discuss the various issues, to create networks of common interests and to launch new initiatives in the area of eLearning, check or the COLING homepage for details.

Inspired by a recent thread on the LLTI on lab curriculum ideas, we have chosen as this year's theme "Technology and the Foreign Language Curriculum: A Constantly Developing Relationship." We welcome proposals for panels and presentations on all topics, but particularly encourage presentations of specific activities, ideas, and approaches to the use of technology in the FL curriculum. We would like to explore different ways in which technology and the curriculum influence one another as both technology and the L2 curriculum continue to evolve. We encourage participation from lab directors and faculty in order to ensure a variety of perspectives. Please consider sharing an activity that has worked well in your lab or an idea that you are developing. The new URLs for NEALLT are: and The old domain names will still work until December 2004: and

    • New Research for New Media: Innovative Research Methods September 4-6,2003 University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN. The Institute for New Media Studies at the University of Minnesota, in collaboration with the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Department of Rhetoric, invites you to apply for participation in an upcoming symposium: New Research for New Media: Innovative Research Methods Symposium. The Internet and evolving new media and communication technologies offer researchers two sets of opportunities: the development of new research techniques and a new, wide-open communication arena to be studied. New techniques such as email surveying, chat space interviewing, electronic brainstorming, user session statistics analysis, and eye-tracking are joining tried and true research methods. New communication phenomena and emerging media usage scenarios are calling for analysis. Studies using the results of these new techniques and on the new media arena are well into the mainstream of research agendas in universities, but the focus of the papers tend to be on the findings, not the determination and effectiveness of the methods used to get those findings. This is what the New Research for New Media: Innovative Research Methods Symposium intends to do. This will be a working symposium in which participants will contribute as much to the conference proceedings as the presenters of papers. Researchers have been selected to present papers that represent a variety of disciplines and research methods. Now we need the participants who will, after presentation of the papers, discuss in small groups the implications of using new research methods and traditional methods in new ways. The discussions and recommendations of the symposium participants will be the core of the conference proceedings with the intention of setting an agenda of examination of new research methods and to identify research implications that require further attention. We are looking for participants who would like to engage in a three days of deep thought about research methods. As a participant you will part of a task force, not just an audience. If you would like to help take the thinking about research methods to the next level, we hope you will apply to attend. Attendance will be limited to 50 participants.

Regional networking and the sharing of expertise and best practice will form the backbone of the event. Hornby Regional School, Pakistan takes as its theme ELT Resources: Innovation and Change. Language Teaching has developed fast in recent years and there is now a wealth of new resources available in software packages, CD ROMs and via the Internet. However, in low resource environments like Pakistan, progress is often much slower, and teachers have very limited access to new ideas and materials. This course will therefore seek to review recent developments in language teaching, familiarise participants with new resources available through the new technologies, and develop plans for the introduction of new materials to their teaching environments. We hope the course will lead to a number of successful bids for funding from ELTeCS, the English Language Teaching Contacts Scheme. The School will be organised by the British Council Pakistan in collaboration with Hornby Educational Trust, Beaconhouse School System, Aga Khan University Centre of English Language, and Society of Pakistan English Language Teachers. Anyone interested in taking part in the event as a participant or as a tutor, should or write to: Hornby Regional School, Pakistan Secretariat Director ELT British Council 65 Mozang Road, Lahore.

    • The 11th ELSNET Summer School on Language and Speech Communication Topic: Language and Speech Technology in Language Learning Lille (France), Monday July 7 - Friday July 18, 2003 Organized by the University of Lille. For this school we have chosen a topic of great relevance to researchers and developers in Europe and in other multilingual environments: the use of language and speech technology in language learning, both of spoken and of written language. The goal of this workshop is to get young researchers on a track that will eventually contribute to an important application area. The underlying vision (or dream) is The automatic animated language tutor. Audience and aims: We see the school as mainly research and development oriented, and hence the primary audience are researchers, developers and integrators who will make our vision happen (rather than teachers who would use it). Both technological and pedagogical aspects will be taken into consideration The aims are: * to make the students familiar with the main principles and problems of language learning/teaching * to make them familiar with current best practice in computer assisted language learning * to make them familiar with the main challenges in computer assisted language learning Participants are expected to have a general computational background and some familiarity with language or speech research and/or processing. After completion of the summer school participants should be able to function in teams aimed at designing or implementing tools, environments or courses for Computer Assisted Language Learning (abbreviated CALL). Course programme: The provisonal programme is available at

Translation is taught as part of language skills programmes and translation training programmes, at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Teaching translation involves assessing the quality of the translations produced by students and giving a mark for the achievement of the intended goal, whether for language assessment or translation skills. The workshop will focus on the aspect of assessment and marking. The following issues will be addressed: … What is the relationship between assessment strategies and theoretical frameworks for teaching translation? … Which criteria are used for assessing and marking translations in a university programme? … Do these vary according to the purpose of the assessment? … How do these criteria compare to translation quality assurance in the real world? The workshop will bring together academic staff from UK universities involved in teaching translation, representatives from language departments in colleges and schools, professional organisations, and professional translators. We plan to have 4-6 presentations to be followed by general discussions. If you are interested in attending the workshop, please contact us by phone (0121 359 3611 Ext. 4224), fax (0121 359 6153), or email: or The fee, which includes a buffet lunch and refreshments, will be £10.00.
