Association for Computational Linguistics, which will take
place April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, italy. This workshop is
also the fifth in the NLPXML series, following workshops
at NLPRS 2001 in Tokyo, COLING 2002 in Taipei, EACL 2003
in Budapest, and ACL 2004 in Barcelona.
EACL 2006 Workshop on
Multi-dimensional Markup in Natural Language Processing:
5th Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2006)
April 4, 2006, Trento, Italy
The EACL 2006 Workshop on Multi-dimensional Markup in Natural Language Processing will be hosted in conjunction with the 11th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics, which will take place April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, italy.
This workshop is also the fifth in the NLPXML series, following workshops at NLPRS 2001 in Tokyo, COLING 2002 in Taipei, EACL 2003 in Budapest, and ACL 2004 in Barcelona.
The widespread adoption of XML within the NLP community as the
main standard for both data and meta-data representation has led to research in a number of issues relating to XML and NLP. One particularly interesting challenge arises from the difficulty in combining annotations resulting from disparate NLP systems in a single hierarchical structure. For downstream applications that rely on a range of linguistic annotations, problems such as crossing boundaries and overlapping elements from different sources make it difficult to query data with multiple dimensions of annotation.
As in previous NLPXML workshops, we invite papers addressing the full range of topics relating NLP and XML. The special focus of this workshop is multi-dimensional markup. Our goal is to bring together researchers from several different fields --- natural language processing, corpus linguistics, markup languages, and information retrieval --- to discuss theoretical and practical issues related to the integration of different layers of text annotation. Thus, we particularly welcome papers that discuss the problems associated with such integration as well as those that provide solutions, whether proposed or implemented, within any of the four fields. We are especially interested in the effects that chosen solutions have on the type of queries that can be made, both from a theoretical and a practical point of view.
Authors are invited to submit full papers on original, unpublished work in the topic area of this workshop. Submissions should be formatted using the EACL 2006 stylefiles with overt author and affiliation information and not exceeding 8 pages. The EACL 2006 stylefiles are available at
Please send your PDF file no later than January 6, 2006, to ahn (at) science.uva.nl
Each submission will be reviewed at least by two members of the programme committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Dual submissions to the main EACL 2006 conference and this workshop are allowed; if you submit to the main session, do indicate this when you submit to the workshop. If your paper is accepted for the main session, you should withdraw your paper from the workshop upon notification by the main session.
Information on registration and registration fees will be provided at the conference web page.
