Meeting URL: http://hcs.harvard.edu/~ling/ 

Linguistic Sub-field: General Linguistics 
Call Deadline: 12-Mar-2004 

Meeting Description:

The colloquium has been initiated with the goal of developing an
intercollegiate community of linguistics enthusiasts at the
undergraduate level. In keeping with this aim, the conference is open
to all students regardless of area of interest or level of training;
in the past, the conference has attracted presenters from five
countries on three continents. This year's keynote speaker is
Professor Norbert Hornstein of the University of Maryland; all other
presentations will be made by undergraduates. We look forward to
seeing you in April! Undergraduates (pursuing a B.A., B.S., or
equivalent degree) of all levels of expertise are invited to submit
1-page abstracts proposing a roundtable discussion or a talk of not
more than twenty minutes. Submissions are encouraged in all
linguistic disciplines, including, but not limited to, syntax,
phonology, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, and
psycholinguistics.

occasion to present the recent developments of NooJ.

7th INTEX/NooJ Workshop
Tours, June 7-9 2004

Call for papers - Deadline: March 31, 2004

ORGANIZERS

Laboratoire d'Informatique de l'Université de Tours (E.A. 2101)

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming seventh
INTEX/NooJ workshop, to be held in Tours, June 7-9 2004.

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 can build
lemmatized concordances of large texts from Finite-State or
Context-Free grammars, and can accordingly perform transformation
operations on texts in cascade, in order to annotate the text, or to
generate paraphrases; these features, when applied in cascade, give
INTEX the power of a Turing Machine. INTEX is used 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.

NooJ, which uses a new technology, a new linguistic engine and a new
interface, is meant to replace INTEX. NooJ's architecture was
presented in the 5th INTEX Workshop (Marseille, June 2002) and its
first alpha version was demoed at the 6th INTEX Workshop (Sofia, May
27-29 2003).

As in the previous workshops (1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003),
this meeting will be the opportunity for INTEX and NooJ users, as well
as other researchers interested in NLP, to meet and to exchange their
experience of development, research or teaching. It will also be the
occasion to present the recent developments of NooJ.

Please, send before March 31st 2004 a one-page abstract to Denis
Maurel by email. The abstract, in French or English, should contain
the title of the article, name, author affiliations, surface mail and
electronic address of each author.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Authors will be
notified whether their papers are accepted or rejected by April 15th
2004. The timeslot is 30 minutes for presentations (including 5
minutes for discussions).

After the conference, authors will be invited to send a definitive
version of their papers for publishing. We are planning to combine a
subset of the proceedings of the 6th and the 7th INTEX Workshops in a
published volume.

Details concerning the workshop organization will soon be given on the
conferences website:
