Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: The 1st International Workshop on Advances in Multilingual Coreference Resolution (AMCR 2013) will be held on 12/13 September 2013 at the International Conference on Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing (RANLP 2013), Hissar, Bulgaria.

The workshop’s website is available under: http://cl.indiana.edu/~zhekova/amcr13

In the last couple of years, the interest in the area of Multilingual Coreference Resolution (MCR) has increased immensely. Two shared tasks (SemEval-2 Shared Task 1: Coreference Resolution in Multiple Languages in 2010 and the CoNLL Shared Task: Modeling Multilingual Unrestricted Coreference in OntoNotes in 2012) have set an excellent benchmark by releasing datasets for 8 different languages (SemEval: Catalan, Dutch, English, German, Italian and Spanish; CoNLL: Arabic, Chinese and English). Moreover, a wide range of multilingual systems have been developed within the framework of the tasks. We see a necessity for future research on the topic of MCR. The lack of existing workshops on the topic motivates our attempt to provide a possibility for the researchers interested specifically on multilinguality with respect to Coreference Resolution to present their work and results.
