Summary/Abstract: The article attempts at framing directions for future work on computational processing of Polish in theface of recent intensive development of electronic tools and resources and close co-operation between Polish research centres involved in computational linguistics. The author regards renewing the work on the National Corpus of Polish as the most important topic, naming it the basic resource for Polish linguisticsand listing the most urgent objectives: extension of the sources and linguistic representation as well as inclusionof diachronic, dialectical and parallel corpora. With respect to language technology, the author calls forenrichment of formal description of Polish with syntactic, semantic and discourse-feature representationand constant improvement of quality of tools and resources by means of co-operation between linguists andcomputer scientists.
