Final Call for Papers

We are happy to announce that the third GLOW in Asia will be hosted
by National Tsing Hua University at Hsinchu, Taiwan. We will follow the
tradition of Hyderabad (India) and Nanzan (Japan), seeking to promote
generative linguistics in Asia, and to facilitate the interaction between
European, American and Asian linguists. The colloquium will consist of
approximately 20 talks of 45 minutes each, followed by 15 minutes of
discussion. Abstracts in all areas of theoretical linguistics are welcome.
Students will be partially subsidized for their travel expenses, and we also
have a plan to publish the proceedings as a special issue of Language &
Linguistics, Academia Sinica, Taiwan.

Abstract Submission

Please send

(a) 10 copies of an anonymous two-page abstract, 1-inch margins on
 all four sides, 12pt font,
(b) a camera-ready original of the abstract with the author's name and
 affiliation, and

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,
