Education, E-commerce and Entertainment in Chinese and Oriental languages for the new Millennium


The International Conference on Chinese Language Computing serves as a forum for academic and industrial researchers and practitioners to discuss the application of new computer technologies to Chinese and Oriental languages computing. The issues considered include all aspects of computer processing of Chinese and Oriental languages: input, character recognition, speech recognition, automatic translation, teaching and retrieval from archives and web. Of special interests are web-based applications, e-commerce, multilingual distance learning and the use of XML in multilingual applications.

Following a one-day technical program on July 8, Saturday, ICCLC2000 will feature tutorials and workshops on e-commerce, e-toys and virtual universities on July 9 Sunday at the Knowledge Systems Institute, so that more people can attend. Paper presentations will be approximately 25 minutes each with 5-10 minutes for questions and discussion. Submissions of proposals to organize a session, a panel or a tutorial are also being solicited.

The conference will be a milestone event. There will be a dinner boat tour. A special rate of $119 per night (single or double) has been negotiated with the hotel. If you can visit Chicago a few days earlier, the July 4th fireworks will be the most spectacular! If you are interested, you can participate in the 2000 International Conference of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering to be held from July 6 to July 8 at the same hotel.
