Special Session on Arabic Information Processing


Farid Meziane, University of Salford, UK

Session Description

The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is spreading across the world. For many years, the English Language was dominating all aspects of ICT systems that span from their development to their use. However, in the last few years many nations have felt the need to use their own language to spread the use of ICT among their populations and communities and also in some situations to protect their language and culture. This is certainly true for the Arab world where there are many initiatives to advance research, development and arabisation of ICT systems. This sessions aims at bringing together researchers and developers interested in topics that include but not limited to:
  • Developing culturally and linguistically aware Information Systems for tha Arab world.
  • Choice of information systems development methodologies for the Arab world.
  • Standardising Arabic Information Processing Vocabulary
  • Building of Arabic Ontologies, taxonomies and dictionaries.
  • Arabic Information extraction systems
  • Arabic Web-development
  • Machine translation systems for the Arabic Language
  • Arabic natural language processing
