The FSMNLP 2005 workshop is a follow-up for some earlier workshops, but
also continues their dynamic, changing tradition. FSMNLP workshops
have traditionally had tutorial lessons and/or invited
speakers. These workshops are under different names and
|1st FSMNLP||1996||ECAI Workshop||Extended Finite-State Models of Language||Budapest|
|2nd FSMNLP||1998||International Workshop||Finite-State Methods in Natural Language Processing||Ankara|
|3rd FSMNLP||2001||ESSLLI Workshop||Finite-State Methods in Natural Language Processing||Helsinki|
|4th FSMNLP||2003||EACL Workshop||Finite-State Methods in Natural Language Processing||Budapest|
|5th FSMNLP||2005||International Workshop||Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing||Helsinki|
There is no official organization behind FSMNLP. The success in having a series of FSMNLP workshop has been based on international co-operation and steadily growing interest in the FSMNLP theme. Earlier organizers are willingly sharing their experience with the subsequent organizers.
Planning the FSMNLP 2006 or FSMNLP 2007 workshop starts already before FSMNLP 2005. The event would probably be in association with such a conference as EACL, ACL, COLING, ECAI, ICAP, or CIAA. If you have a good idea, we encourage you to take an initiative and contact some of the earlier FSMNLP organizers.
During FSMNLP 2005, the plans will be discussed informally.
