Meeting Description: 

A workshop to be held at EACL-03 the 11th Conference of the European
Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics 


Anne Abeill� (Paris 7 & LLF, Paris)
Silvia Hansen (Saarland University, Saarbr�cken)
Hans Uszkoreit (Saarland University & DFKI, Saarbr�cken)


Large linguistically interpreted corpora play an increasingly
important role for machine learning, evaluation, psycholinguistics as
well as theoretical linguistics. Many groups have started to create
corpus resources annotated with morphological, syntactic, semantic and
discourse information for a variety of languages. Linguistic
annotation may consist of morphological analyses, trees, dependencies,
grammatical relations, word senses, (co)references, information
structure, semantic representations, discourse relations and other
types of linguistic information.

We aim to bring together these activities in order to facilitate
advanced and efficient corpus annotations which will provide re-usable

The workshop will also provide a forum for reports on the scientific
and technological exploitation of interpreted corpora in general,
computational or psycholinguistics. Such reports on exploitation
results are valuable for the comparison of alternative approaches and
will thus serve as feedback to ongoing and new corpus annotation

We invite submissions of papers constituting substantial, original,
and unpublished work on all aspects of linguistically interpreted
corpora, including, but not limited to:

- creation of practical annotation schemes
- efficient annotation techniques including automation
- tools supporting corpus conversions
- consistency checking and validation
- tools and methods for searching and browsing
- qualitative and quantitative studies based on
 linguistically interpreted corpora
- technological advances achieved by the 
 exploitation of interpreted corpora

Meeting Description: 

The annual conference promotes interdisciplinary research and
discussion of the analysis of naturally occurring human interaction.
Submissions from national, international, and University of California
scholars are encouraged. Research papers should address topics of
language, interaction, and culture, and should employ naturally
occurring data. Potential methods include, but are not limited to,
