 WORKSHOP
 ON
 MULTI-LAYER CORPUS-BASED ANALYSIS
 

 July 30 - August 1, 2001
 Iasi, Romania
 

 ORGANIZERS

 Nancy Ide, Vassar College, USA
 Daniel Marcu, ISI, University of Southern California
 Massimo Poesio, University of Edinburgh


 Corpora annotated for a variety of linguistic features are
 becoming increasingly available. Part of speech annotated
 corpora are commonplace; treebanks in a variety of
 languages are available or under development; and corpora
 annotated for various features of discourse, including
 co-reference and discourse structure, are also available
 (e.g., the MUC corpora). In addition, large speech corpora
 annotated with phonetic transcriptions and prosodic
 analysis and various multi-lingual aligned corpora are
 available from centers such as the Linguistic Data
 Consortium and the European Language Resources
 Association.

 This workshop will address issues of using corpora
 annotated for multiple layers (e.g., syntax and discourse,
 prosody and part of speech, etc.) or combining multiple
 layers of annotation in natural language analysis. We
 invite submissions on the following topics:

 o Research that exploits information on different
 linguistic levels;

 o Consideration and demonstration of the ways in which
 information from different layers can be used in
 automatic language processing;

 o Compatibility of corpora annotated for different
 linguistic layers, including means to harmonize
 different annotation types and levels;

 o Tools for exploiting different levels of annotation. 

 The workshop will be held in conjunction with the EUROLAN
 2001 Summer School on Creation and Exploitation of
 Annotated Language Resources, to be held in Iasi, Romania
 from 30 July - August 11, 2001. Because EUROLAN 2001 is
 concerned with a wide variety of types of linguistic
 annotation, the workshop will serve to complement the
 content of lectures and tutorials that are part of the
 School's main program. Registration for the workshop is
 included in the Summer School registration fee.

 SUBMISSION INFORMATION:

 Papers should report on original work not previously
 presented elsewhere. The workshop is intended to provide a
 forum for discussion and a means to receive feedback for
 future development; therefore, papers describing both
 completed work and work-in-progress are acceptable.

 Submissions of 3500-5000 words should be sent via email to
 idecs.vassar.edu with the subject line "EUROLAN 2001
 WORKSHOP SUBMISSION". Submissions in Postscript, PDF, or
 plain ASCII text formats are acceptable.
