Meeting Description: 

INTEX is a linguistic development environment that includes
large-coverage dictionaries and grammars, and parses texts of several
million words in real time.

As in the previous workshops, (1996, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2003), this
meeting will be the opportunity for INTEX users to meet and to
exchange their experience of development, research or teaching. It
will also be the occasion to present the recent developments of INTEX
and NOOJ. 

Call for papers - Deadline: March 15th

Organizer: 
Bulgarian Association for Computational Linguistics - BACL

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming sixth INTEX
workshop, to be held in Sofia from 28-30 May 2003.

INTEX is a linguistic development environment that includes
large-coverage dictionaries and grammars, and parses texts of several
million words in real time. INTEX includes tools to create and
maintain large-coverage lexical resources, as well as morphological
and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts
in order to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns,
remove ambiguities, and tag simple and compound words. INTEX is used
by several research centers to rapidly construct extractors to
identify semantic units in large texts, such as Proper names of
persons, locations, technical expressions of finance, etc. INTEX can
build lemmatized concordances and indices of large texts with respect
to all types of Finite State patterns.

One interesting characteristic of INTEX is that the system is open:
users can add their own resources use the INTEX programs to build new
applications, and add their own programs to modify INTEX. INTEX is now
used in over 200 research centers as a linguistic platform, an
information retrieval system, to teach second languages, as a
terminological extractor, as well as to teach computational
linguistics to students.

As in the previous workshops, (1996, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2003), this
meeting will be the opportunity for INTEX users to meet and to
exchange their experience of development, research or teaching. It
will also be the occasion to present the recent developments of INTEX
and NOOJ.
