2006-04-20 : Symposium on Modeling and Shallow Parsing of Indian Languages organized by CFILT jointly with CIIL Mysore and C-DAC India to be held in IIT Bombay.

The "First National Symposium on Modeling and Shallow Parsing of Indian Languages" will be held from 31st March to 4th April, 2006 at IIT Bombay. It is organized by CFILT jointly with CIIL Mysore and C-DAC India. The event is motivated by the international trend of going deeper and deeper in shallow processing of natural languages, and the fact that Indian languages show unique and richly complex behavior in morphology, word-order, compounding, etc.

Already, Eminent researchers have shown great interest in the event. They will deliver invited speeches, and are from both academia and industry (IITs, IISc, TIFR, IIIT, DIT, CIIL, JNU, DU, CIEFL, HCU, Google, Microsoft Research, IBM Research, etc.). Students and researchers from 40 institutes across the country including 5 universities from the neighboring countries will present focused papers and demos. As part of the Symposium, a panel discussion will be conducted to chart out the course of action in Indian Language Processing in the coming years.

The Symposium is sponsored by IBM Research India, Yahoo, C-DAC India and Department of Information Technology under Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (Govt. of India).
