Word Alignment for Languages with Scarce Resources

Description: This paper presents the task definition, resources, participating systems, and comparative results for the shared task on word alignment which was organized as part of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) 2005 Workshop on Building and Using Parallel Texts. The shared task included English-Inuktitut, Romanian-English, and English-Hindi sub-tasks, and drew the participation of ten teams from around the world with a total of 50 systems.

Text Semantic Similarity, with Applications

Description: In this paper, the authors present a knowledge-based method for measuring the semantic-similarity of texts. Through experiments performed on two different applications: (1) paraphrase and entailment identification, and (2) word sense similarity, the authors show that this method outperforms the traditional text similarity metrics based on lexical matching.

Unsupervised Large-Vocabulary Word Sense Disambiguation with Graph-based Algorithms for Sequence Data Labeling

Description: This paper introduces a graph-based algorithm for sequence data labeling, using random walks on graphs encoding label dependencies. The algorithm is illustrated and tested in the context of an unsupervised word sense disambiguation problem, and shown to significantly outperform the accuracy achieved through individual label assignment, as measured on standard sense-annotated data sets.

Throughput Optimization in Multi-Cell CDMA Networks

Description: In this paper, the authors investigate the performance of a multi-cell CDMA network by determining the maximum throughput that the network can archive for a given grade-of-service requirement, quality-of-service requirement, network topology and call arrival rate profile.
