Meeting Description: TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and treebanks. The 13th edition of TLT will take place at the University of Tübingen, Germany on December 12-13, 2014.

For more than 10 years now, TLT has served as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related to syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks; with a focus on all the aspects of treebanking -- descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational -- but also going beyond treebanks, including other levels of annotation such as frame semantics, coreference, or events, to name only a few.

Invited Speakers:

Sandra Kübler (Indiana University, Indiana, USA)
Gertjan van Noord (University of Groningen, The Netherlands)

Workshop Motivation and Aims:

Treebanks have proved to be crucial resources for very important NLP applications, such as machine translation and information extraction, as well as supporting resources for various NLP tasks, such as high-quality parsing and POS tagging.

More recent trends in treebank related research have focused a variety of initiatives, such as annotating deep syntactic and syntactic-semantic interface information; (semi)-automatic conversion of existing treebanks into deeper linguistic formats; multilingual and crosslingual treebanking, including attempts for 'language universal' treebanking; enriching treebanks with additional layers of linguistic annotation as well as world knowledge layer; dynamic treebanking involving a close connection between parsing grammar and manual annotation; designing web services for observing and exploiting theoretically diverse treebanks; mapping syntactic and semantic knowledge to Linked Open Data information (LOD).
