	title        = {Developing an Open-Source Web-Based Exercise Generator for Swedish},
	abstract     = {This paper reports on the ongoing international project System architecture for
ICALL and the progress made by the Swedish partner. The Swedish team is developing a
web-based exercise generator reusing available annotated corpora and lexical resources.
Apart from the technical issues like implementation of the user interface and the
underlying processing machinery, a number of interesting pedagogical questions need
to be solved, e.g., adapting learner-oriented exercises to proficiency levels; selecting authentic examples of an appropriate difficulty level; automatically ranking corpus examples by their quality; providing feedback to the learner, and selecting vocabulary for training domain-specific, academic or general-purpose vocabulary. In this paper we describe what has been done so far, mention the exercise types that can be generated at
the moment as well as describe the tasks left for the future.

	abstract     = {In this paper, we present an on-going project whose overall aim is to develop open-source system architecture for supporting ICALL systems that will facilitate re-use of existing NLP tools and resources on a plug-and-play basis. We introduce the project, describe the approaches adopted by the two language teams, and present two applications being developed using the proposed architecture.},
