CALL FOR PAPERS
       ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing
                        Special Issue on
               Machine Translation of Asian Languages

    In the field of Asian language processing, translation is a
particularly pressing challenge owing to the diversity among the
languages of Asia as well as between Asian and Western languages. Yet
this challenge also affords the opportunity for new breakthroughs in the
search for automatic translation methods that can bridge every language
gap. We invite papers on recent advances in machine translation from and
into Asian languages. Submissions must not have been previously
published, with the exception that substantial extensions of conference
papers will be considered. Topics of interest include:

    * solutions to translation issues particular to Asian languages
    * new translation models, or improvements to translation models,
      motivated by Asian languages
    * general machine translation research applied to Asian languages
    * translation and transliteration of named entities
    * interactions between translation and word-segmentation or
      morphological processing
    * impact of novel resources (parallel corpora, treebanks, linguistic
      tools) on machine translation
    * spoken language translation for Asian languages
    * error analysis and linguistic analysis of problems in Asian
      language machine translation
