Meeting Description:

A workshop to be held at COLING-04 the 20th International Conference
on Computational Linguistics ORGANIZED BY:

Silvia Hansen-Schirra (Saarland University, Saarbrucken)
Stephan Oepen (University of Oslo & CSLI, Stanford University)
Hans Uszkoreit (Saarland University & DFKI, Saarbrucken)


TOPIC AND MOTIVATION:

Large linguistically interpreted corpora play an increasingly
important role for machine learning, evaluation, psycholinguistics as
well as theoretical linguistics. Many research groups are engaged in
the creation of corpus resources annotated with morphological,
syntactic, semantic and discourse information for a variety of
languages. We aim to bring together these activities in order to
identify and disseminate best practice in the development and
utilization of linguistically interpreted corpora.

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate research results
with resprect to the annotation, conversion and exploitation of
corpora taking into account different applications and theoretical
investigations in the field of language technology and research. 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unpublished work on all aspects of linguistically interpreted corpora,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 - automation of corpus
annotation - tools supporting corpus conversions - validation
including consistency checking of corpora - browsing corpora and
searching for instances of linguistic phenomena - relating actual
annotation to contemporary linguistic theory - interpretation of
quantitative results - use of annotated corpora in the automated
induction of linguistic knowledge

Rob Malouf, Assistant Professor at the Department of Linguistics and
Oriental Languages at San Diego State University, will be our keynote
speaker.
