Large linguistically interpreted (annotated) corpora are urgently
needed in an increasing number of projects in the field of
computational linguistics. Many groups are currently creating corpus
resources for a variety of languages. These corpora are used for a
broad range of different applications and theoretical
investigations. We aim to bring together these activities in order to
promote and facilitate first of all advanced and efficient
exploitation of annotated corpora.

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate research results
in the field of corpus annotation, taking into account different types
of information. The Workshop on Linguistically Interpreted Corpora
focuses on

- exploitation of annotated corpora
- tools & techniques for syntactic annotation and browsing in corpora
- tagging and parsing methods that aim at semi-automatic annotation,
- error detection and correction,
- inter-annotator-agreement,
- representation formats and standards,

Message 2: Cognitive Modeling in Linguistics

Date: Mon, 14 May 2001 00:06:52 +0400
From: solovyev <>
Subject: Cognitive Modeling in Linguistics

International Conference "Cognitive Modeling in 

September, 4-5, 2001. 
Divnomorsk (on the shore of Black Sea), Russia

The conference is organized by Russian Association of Artificial
Intelligence, Computing Center of Russian Academy of Science, and <Web
Journal of Formal, Computational and Cognitive Linguistics>. It will
be fourth conference in the series.

The aim of the conference is joining efforts in research of cognitive
processes of researchers in the fields of cognitive linguistics,
learning theory, neural networks, cognitive psychology, knowledge

The reports on the following themes (but not only listed) are welcome:
formal models in linguistics, psycholinguistics, language and thought,
language processing in neural networks, cognitive models of thought
and memory, cognitive models of language acquisition, semantic and
pragmatic, language and culture, child speech, psychosemantics.

The size of a paper is not limited. The papers could be presented in
English (preferable) or Russian, in the later case an abstract in
English is required. Please, send your papers by e-mail. Next formats
are acceptable: MS_Word, RTF, plain text.
