First Call for Papers

Following the highly successful workshops on the Controlled Natural Language simplifying language use at LREC2014, we are pleased to announce the 6th CLAW workshop, embracing an open range both of applications to standardizations, in conjunction with the 10th edition of the Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC2016), 23-28 May 2016, Grand Hotel Bernardin Conference Center, Portorož (Slovenia)

This workshop will focus more on the issues like standardization toward the Controlled Language Applications and their related supporting research and implementation issues in cooperation with the controlled language application, ISO/TC37 standardization, and semantic web communities.

models, processing algorithm, terminology aspects, R&D projects, use case, related topics on summarization, question and answering, machine translation, quality and usability evaluations of controlled language.

The workshop will give equal emphasis to the academic, corporate and industrial perspectives, while bringing together researchers, developers, users, and potential users of controlled language systems from around the world. The goal of this workshop will be to bridge the gap between the theory, practice, applications of controlled language and to identify the existing and possible future controlled language applications, and what should be kept in a standard for controlled language application.
