ICCE-2014 Workshop on NLP Techniques for Educational Applications

ICCE-2014 Workshop on Natural Language Processing Techniques
for Educational Applications (NLP-TEA)

ICCE-2014, Nov. 30- Dec. 4, Nara, Japan

High quality papers would be selected to extend for publishing in
The Scientific World Journal (TSWJ) (SCI-indexed, 2012 IF: 1.730)
Special Issue on Human Language Technologies for Educational Applications


Research and development in the NLP (Natural Language Processing) community has advanced NLP techniques for educational applications. For example, the NLP community in north America organizes a series of workshops on Innovative Use of NLP for Building Educational Applications (BEA) to improve existing capabilities and to generate creative ways to use NLP in educational applications for writing, reading, assessment, and so on. The previous BEA workshops were in conjunction with promotive conferences in NLP area (either ACL or NAACL HLT). In addition to research papers in the above workshops, several shared tasks were also organized, e.g. Native Language Identification (NLI) competition at the BEA-2013 workshop, the CoNLL 2013/2014 shared task focusing on grammatical error correction for English as a foreign language learners, and the SIGHAN 2013/2014 Chinese Spelling Check Bakeoff. All of these competitions will increase the visibility of educational application research in the NLP community.
The ICCE 2014 in Japan will provide an ideal opportunity to bring together again influential as well as aspiring researchers in computer education area, to deliberate and interact on a range of research issues. We encourage submissions of papers on all topics in the general areas related to NLP techniques for educational applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

· Automated Evaluation for Learners' Responses
o Spelling Error Check
o Grammatical Error Detection / Identification / Correction
o Discourse Analysis
o Plagiarism Detection
o Automated Essay Scoring

· Learner Corpus Development
o Assessment of Learners' Language Proficiency
