CLAW 2006: 5th International Workshop on Controlled Language Applications

Location: Boston Marriott, Cambridge, MA, USA
Sponsor:  2006 Conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas (AMTA 2006)
Website: AMTA2006 website:
Dates: Saturday, August 12, 2006, (day after AMTA2006 main conference)


The 5th International Workshop on Controlled Language Applications (CLAW) is planned to be held August 12, 2006 as a 1-day post-conference Workshop in conjunction with the AMTA2006 (Association for Machine Translation in the
Americas) conference in Cambridge, MA, USA at the Boston Marriott.

For information on the past four CLAWs:



Of interest are submissions on all topics relating to the design, implementation and application of controlled languages, including but not limited to: human communication protocols; controlled text authoring; conformance checking systems; controlled language authoring aids; memory-based authoring; (re-)authoring combined with translation; issues in Controlled Language design; industrial experience and evolving requirements; quality and usability evaluations of controlled language.

On the research front, we are grappling with issues like standardization, design, and evaluation of controlled language systems. On implementation issues, we are particularly interested in studies regarding author productivity and document usability. The workshop will give equal emphasis to the academic, corporate and industrial perspectives, while bringing together researchers, developers, users, and potential users of controlled language systems from around the world.


The one-day workshop will feature paper presentations.
