- Itahashi introduced a rough
sketch of COCOSDA and Oriental COCOSDA and then he showed the list of
representatives of Oriental COCOSDA.
- New regional representatives:
We usually have two representatives from each region. Itahashi proposed
two candidates from Malaysia and one from Viet Num. Unfortunately, none
of them were present at the meeting. Some participants from Malaysia
showed an interest in the activities of Oriental COCOSDA. So, it was
agreed that we should wait for a while and we ask Malaysian colleagues
to discuss this matter so that they come to an agreement who will join
the ??6Oriental COCOSDA Committee Meeting.
was suggested that the name “representative” is too formal; steering
committee member or something similar would be preferable.
- Next meting in 2006: The
hosts to-be from Malaysia did not come to Jakarta, but Itahashi presented
a promotion power-point slides which were sent to him from Prof. Pandian
via Dr. Ariff. They proposed to host the next meeting in Penag,
Malaysia. The venue will be Hotel Equatorial Penang.
- Meetings after 2005: Vietnam,
Xinjang Uygur Autonomous Region of China and Ulan Bator were suggested
as the candidates for the venue of the meeting. Dr. Erdenebat said that
there are some active researchers in Xinjang and Ulan Bator working
on Mongolian speech and language and he will contact them.
- Cooperation with NLP community:
There are several conferences related to NLP such as ALR, ICCPOL, ICSP,
ISCSLP, PACLIC, PACLING, etc. The ALR seems to be a NLP counterpart
of Oriental COCOSDA. It was suggested that we continue considering the
cooperation with them.
