Abstract In this paper we present the Collaborative Arabic Morphologic Service (CAMS). The main theme of this project is to provide the research community of Arabic morphology with a web based service that enables them to run various algorithms of without the need to program them on their own or migrate to different platforms. This has stemmed from the fact that, even though many algorithms in the field of Arabic natural language processing were presented, the majority of them do not provide the actual implementation for future use. Moreover, in the cases when such implementations are present, the users face the restriction of the lack of portability between different platforms. We present in this paper an intended architecture of this web service. Moreover, we discuss the internal specifics of communication between the users' end-systems and the server that hosts the service. In addition, we present a novel approach of merging the results of various algorithms instead of just resorting to one algorithm at a time. This, as a result, is expected to enhance the overall accuracy of the system. Finally, a logging and feedback unit will be incorporated such that the results of previous queries may be used in later similar queries.
