                        Call for Participation

The 3rd International Conference on Large-scale Knowledge Resources
    Conference Hall, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo Japan
                          3-5 March, 2008

              http://www.coe21-lkr.titech.ac.jp/lkr2008

Registration is now open: https://act.jtbgmt.com/gmt/ssl/LKR2008.asp

In the 21st century, we are now on the way to the knowledge-intensive
society in which knowledge plays ever more important roles. Research
interest should inevitably shift from information to knowledge, namely
how to build, organize, maintain and utilize knowledge are the central
issues in a wide variety of fields. The 21st Century COE program,
"Framework for Systematization and Application of Large-scale
Knowledge Resources (COE-LKR)" conducted by Tokyo Institute of
Technology is one of the attempts to challenge these important
issues. Inspired by this project, LKR2008 aims at bringing together
diverse contribution in cognitive science, computer science, education
and linguistics to explore design, construction, extension,
maintenance, validation, and application of knowledge.

Invited Talks:
    Nicoletta Calzolari (Director, ILC-CNR, Itary)
      "A European Research Infrastructure of Language Resources and
       Language Technologies"
    Donna Harman (Guest Researcher, NIST, USA)
      "Towards Better Evaluation Methodologies"
    Biing-Hwang Juang (Professor, Georgia Tech. USA)
