      Vancouver, BC, Canada


      ACL/SIGPARSE will host the 9th International Workshop on Parsing
      Technologies (IWPT'03) on October 9 and 10, 2005 in conjunction with the
      2005 Human Language Technology Conference and Conference on Empirical
      Methods in Natural Language Processing (HLT/EMNLP; see

      IWPT'05 continues the tradition of biennial workshops on parsing
      technology organized by SIGPARSE, the Special Interest Group on Parsing
      of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). This workshop
      series was initiated by Masaru Tomita in 1989. The first workshop, in
      Pittsburgh and Hidden Valley, was followed by workshops in Cancun
      (Mexico) in 1991; Tilburg (Netherlands) and Durbuy (Belgium) in 1993;
      Prague and Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic) in 1995; Boston/Cambridge
      (Massachusetts) in 1997; Trento (Italy) in 2000; Beijing (China) in
      2001; and Nancy (France) in 2003.

      Topics of interest for IWPT'05

      Topics of interest for IWPT'05 include, but are not limited to:
      theoretical and practical studies of parsing algorithms for natural
      language sentences, texts, fragments, dialogues, ill-formed sentences,
      speech input, multi-dimensional (pictorial) or signed languages,
      multimedia (web) documents, and parsing issues arising or viewed in a
      multimodal context. Both knowledge-based and statistical approaches are
