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.

Our goal for this workshop 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. In
addition to full paper presentations, the workshop will also have two sessions
devoted to system demonstrations.
