Information Retrieval with Asian Languages

Interest is growing in effective and efficient retrieval of relevant
information from large unstructured databases. Research in information
retrieval (IR) has expanded its scope widely with advances in related

retrieval with Asian languages. Suggested topics include, but are not
limited to:
- retrieval or routing of texts at variouls levels of granularity
- cross-language text retrieval
- automated text categorization
- infomation extraction
- automatic text summarization (including automatic abstracting)
- use of machine readable dictionaries and/or thesauri
- language- or task-specific user interfaces for IR-related
- various natural language processing techqniques for IR-related
