The inaugural meeting of the Workshop on Computational Linguistics held in Split, Croatia,
focusing on the topic of 'Computational Modeling of Lexical Acquisition'.
The Croatian Language Technologies Society (CLTS) and the University of Split are pleased
to sponsor the inaugural meeting of the Workshop on Computational Linguistics held in Split,
Croatia, focusing on the topic of ''Computational Modeling of Lexical Acquisition''. We will
build on the topics in formal-theoretical and computational linguistics, in particular on issues
in learnability, complexity and modeling of lexical knowledge.
This workshop is especially intended to provide a forum for the presentation of unique and
original research on computational linguistic topics in the domain of learning of lexical
properties, i.e. lexical acquisition, including but not limited to the following topics:
a. machine learning methods for lexical acquisition
- speech and language segmentation into lexical units
- induction and learning of phonological and morphological structure
- inducing formal grammars from discovered structural properties
- learning lexical semantic properties and lexical disambiguation
- computational models of psycholinguistic aspects of lexical acquisition
b. corpora, evaluation and applications
- induction of part-of-speech information for tagging and automatic annotation (via e.g.
clustering and classification, using Vector Space Modeling or other strategies)
- corpora for learning phonological and morphological regularities and a
common gold standard
- applications using machine learning and automatic lexical acquisition
(e.g. tagger, ontologies, textmining)
- evaluation strategies and methods for learning approaches.
This workshop will expand into a fixed annual event organized by the Croatian Language
Technologies Society (CLTS) to be hosted, in turn, and shared among all interested and
committed Croatian Universities.
Time: 25.-28. July 2005
Location: University of Split, Croatia
Abstract Deadline: 15th of March, 2005
Acceptance Information: 1st of April, 2005
