Call Deadline: 15-Mar-2006

Meeting Description:

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming ninth INTEX/NooJ workshop, to be held in Belgrade, Serbia, June 1 - June 3, 2006 at the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade.

INTEX/NooJ is a linguistic development environment that includes tools to construct and maintain large-coverage lexical resources, morphological and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts in order to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns, remove ambiguities, tag words and extract semantic entities.


We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming ninth INTEX/NooJ workshop, to be held in Belgrade, Serbia, June 1 - June 3, 2006 at the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade.

INTEX/NooJ is a linguistic development environment that includes tools to construct and maintain large-coverage lexical resources, morphological and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts in order to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns, remove ambiguities, tag words and extract semantic entities.

INTEX/NooJ can build lemmatized concordances of large texts from Finite-State Automata and Transducers, Context-Free grammars and Recursive Transition Networks, and can accordingly perform transformation operations on texts in cascade to recusively annotate texts, which gives it the power of a Turing machine. INTEX/NooJ is used as a linguistic development platform, an information retrieval system, a terminological extractor, as well as to teach linguistics and computational linguistics to students.

NooJ is the latest version of INTEX, now completely redesigned and built in the Object Oriented ''Component Programming'' .NET framework. NooJ's main improvements over INTEX are:

- its new dictionary architecture: all previous DELA-type dictionaries and lexicon-grammars are now unified,
- NooJ linguistic parsers are non destructive: NooJ uses an annotation system synchronized to the text, that allows transducers to be applied to texts in cascade without ever destroying the original text,
- its integration of its inflection & derivation engine into its syntactic engine that allows linguists to program Harris-type transformations,
- its addition of a number of tools inspired by Software Engineering techniques, that make the development of large linguistic resources more robust over time.

Finally, NooJ includes a number of technical improvements: NooJ processes texts and corpora in over 100+ file formats, including all variants of UNICODE, ASCII, HTML, MS-WORD, etc. ; NooJ's linguistic engine is multilingual ; NooJ can import information from, and export its annotations back to XML documents ; NooJ command-line programs and direct Object Oriented API makes it much easier to integrate any of its functionalities into other applications, etc. To learn more about NooJ:

As in the previous workshops, 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, including computational morphology, lexicon and quantitative linguistics. It will also be the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ.

Send before March 15, 2006 a one-page abstract to nooj_at_matf.bg.ac.yu.

The abstract, in French or in English, should contain the title of the article, the name, affiliation, surface mail and electronic address of each co-author.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Authors will be notified whether their papers are accepted or rejected by April 8th, 2006. The timeslot is 30 minutes for presentations (including 5 minutes for discussions). After the conference, authors selected for publishing by the program committee will be invited to send a definitive version of their papers for publication.
