Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing - FSMNLP 2012
10th International Workshop
University of the Basque Country, Donostia - San Sebastián
July 23-25, 2012
The International Workshop Series of Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing (FSMNLP) is the premier forum of the ACL Special Interest Group on Finite-State Methods (SIGFSM). It serves researchers and practitioners working on
- natural language processing (NLP) applications or language resources
- theoretical and implementation aspects, or
- their combinations
that have obvious relevance or an explicitly discussed relation to Finite-State Methods in NLP. This year, the Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing (FSMNLP) workshop is part of the Alan Turing Year on the occasion of the Centenary Celebration of his life and work.
Kimmo Koskenniemi (University of Helsinki)
We have planned a series of short tutorials (30-60 min. each) addressing some specific application or topic in a concise manner. So far, the following tutorials are planned:
- Spelling and grammar correction with FSTs (Iñaki Alegria, Mans Hulden)
- Probabilistic parsing with weighted FSTs (Miikka Silfverberg, University of Helsinki)
- Machine learning of automata and transducers
Nine FSMNLP workshops have been organized in the past in: Blois (2011), Pretoria (2009), Ispra (2008), Potsdam (2007), Helsinki (2005), Budapest (2003), Helsinki (2001), Ankara (1998), Budapest (1996).
FSMNLP 2012 will be organized shortly before CIAA. The 17th International Conference on Implementation and Application of Automata (CIAA) will take place in Porto, Portugal on July 17-20, 2012 (800 km from Donostia-San Sebastián).
These consecutive periods as well as the European locations facilitate the attendance at both conferences.
