INTRODUCTION
The International Conference on the Computer Processing of Oriental 
Languages (ICCPOL) series is a regular international conference supported by 
the Chinese and Oriental Languages Society (COLCS), an international society

Tokushima, Japan (1999), Seoul, Korea (2001), Shenyang, China (2003), and 
Singapore (2006). This conference will be the 22nd gathering.

The conference serves as an international forum for linguists, computer 
scientists, information engineers and system users with interests in the 
computer processing and understanding of Oriental languages. Topics of 
interest include, but are not limited to:

? Cross- and multilingual information processing
? Text input methods
? Document analysis and character recognition
? Natural language processing
? Machine translation
? Information retrieval and extraction
? Question-answering
? Text Summarization
? Multilingual computing
? Speech recognition and synthesis
? Language resources and evaluation
? Text mining and knowledge discovery
? Web-based applications
? E-commerce, education and entertainment

Original papers presenting innovative ideas, design principles, theoretical 
analysis, implementation techniques, programming concepts, and experimental 
results are solicited.
