Third International Workshop on Malay and Indonesian Language Engineering

Singapore, 2 August 2009


The Third International MALINDO Workshop (MALINDO2009)
2 August 2009

MALINDO is an offical ACL-IJCNLP 2009 co-located event


A considerable amount of research has been done on the processing of Indonesian and Malaysian languages offering a variety of Computational Linguistics (CL) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) resources (dictionaries, thesauri, monolingual/parallel corpora, etc.), tools (morphological analysers/generators, stemmers, spelling checkers, syntactic parsers, etc.) and applications (machine translation, information extraction, information retrieval systems, etc.). All these valuable language resources, tools, and services are most of the time ignored by the public and often not known by the researchers and students working on these languages. This third MALINDO Workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners, representing different perspectives, to share and to exchange their ideas on the processing of Indonesian and Malaysian languages. Thus, the organisers of the workshop wants to highlight the effort and promising works done on the processing of Indonesian and Malaysian languages in order to attract more students to the CL and NLP fields and also to let all the NLP communities in this World to be aware of their existence.

Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished papers on any topic that is of interest to the processing of Malaysian and Indonesian languages and its broad applications, for presentation at the workshop and publication in the proceedings.

The workshop will be of interest to anyone working on the processing - from the computational and theoretical point of view - of Indonesian and Malay languages.


The topics of the papers are requested to be in all areas related to the processing - computational and theoretical point of view - of Malaysian and Indonesian languages.
