Subject: Registry of Linguistic Data Categories within an Integrated Language Resources Repository Area

Registry of Linguistic Data Categories within an Integrated Language
Resources Repository Area

Date: 29-May-2004 - 29-May-2004
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Contact: Thierry Declerck

Meeting URL: http://www.dfki.de/~declerck/repository_lrec04.htm 

Linguistic Sub-field: Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 31-Mar-2020 


Meeting Description:

The motivation for the workshop is provided by the European project
INTERA and ISO committee TC37/SC4, both of which are working to
develop a centralized, universally accessible standardized Data
Category Registry for linguistic resources and their
annotations. Papers presented at the workshop and the discussions
surrounding them will address issues of standardized metadata for
accessing language resources on the web, and appropriate
representations (including suitable levels of abstraction) for, and
access methods to, linguistic annotations to be included in the Data
Category Registry. The registry will include annotation ''fragments''
that can be used as is, combined with other fragments, or modified or
extended for specific uses in annotation documents associated with
language resources of all kinds.


SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
(Extended Dealines: 31st March) 

Workshop on

A Registry of Linguistic Data Categories within an Integrated Language
Resources Repository Area
(endorsed by the project EU project INTERA and by ISO/TC 37/SC 4)


http://www.dfki.de/~declerck/repository_lrec04.htm 
Centro Cultural de Belem, Lisbon, Portugal
29th May 2004


Workshop to be held in conjunction with the 4th International
Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC 2004)
Main conference: 26-27-28 May 2004
http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2004/


Aim

The goal of this workshop is to contribute to the development of an
integrated language resources repository and web services to support
it. The workshop will bring together researchers, developers and
commercial providers who are interested in the development of an
infrastructure to support distributed access to language resources,
exchange and interoperability.

Background and motivation

The motivation for the workshop is provided by the European project
INTERA and ISO committee TC37/SC4, both of which are working to
develop a centralized, universally accessible standardized Data
Category Registry for linguistic resources and their
annotations. Papers presented at the workshop and the discussions
surrounding them will address issues of standardized metadata for
accessing language resources on the web, and appropriate
representations (including suitable levels of abstraction) for, and
access methods to, linguistic annotations to be included in the Data
Category Registry. The registry will include annotation ''fragments''
that can be used as is, combined with other fragments, or modified or
extended for specific uses in annotation documents associated with
language resources of all kinds.


Workshop topics

-Description of Metadata for language resources (written or spoken,
but also multimodal resources)
-Description of existing category schemes for specific types of
annotation that could be incorporated into the linguistic Data
Category Registry, either ''as is'' or with modification
-Detailed proposals for the format, organization, domain coverage
(e.g., syntax, morphology, co-reference, etc.), and level of
abstraction for linguistic data included in the Registry
Considerations for representation of categories for different
languages (e.g., how to relate English morpho-syntactic categories to
those for Japanese or Estonian?)
-The role of ontological information to support categories in the
Registry, and/or suggestions for implementation
-Procedures for management and access to the Registry
-The role of Data Categories for the interoperability of resources
and/or tools-
-Web access to language resources and data in the Registry
-Web services for language resources and the Data Category Registry

Format of the Workshop
The workshop will comprise of oral presentations of previously
submitted papers that went through a double peer review process. The
proceedings of the workshop will be published by the local organising
committee.


Important dates
31st March 2004 Deadline for submission of (full) papers
12th April 2004 Notification of acceptance and preliminary programme
