[Workshop Theme and Topics]

A long-standing problem in Natural Language Processing has been a lack
of large-scale knowledge for computers. The emergence of the Web and
the rapid increase of information on the Web brought us to what could
be called the "information explosion era," and drastically changed the
environment of NLP. The Web is not only a marvelous target for NLP,
but also a valuable resource from which knowledge could be extracted
for computers. Motivated by the desire to have a very first
opportunity to discuss early approaches to those issues and to share
the state-of-the-art technologies at that time, the first
International Workshop on NLP Challenges in the Information Explosion
Era (NLPIX 2008) was successfully held in conjunction with WWW 2008 in
Beijing. The aim of the second workshop of the series of International
Workshop NLPIX is to bring researchers and practitioners together in
order to discuss large-scale and sharable NLP infrastructures, and
furthermore to discuss emerging NEW issues beyond them. Possible
topics of the paper submissions include, but are not limited to:

* Construction of large corpora (crawling, preprocessing)
* Sharable large resources (e.g., Google N-gram statistics, etc.)
* Standard for a linguistic annotation framework
* Knowledge acquisition from very large corpora
* Bootstrapping approach for knowledge acquisition
* Large scale text mining based on shallow/deep NLP
* Managing and sharing acquired knowledge
* Exploitation of acquired knowledge for real applications
* Knowledge-based information access, analysis, and organization
* High performance/parallel computing environment for NLP
* Cloud computing for NLP

In particular, we solicit the papers that aim at fulfilling a NOVEL
type of needs in Web access and that can provide a new insight into
future directions of Web access research.
