Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 09-Mar-2007

Meeting Description:

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,
extract semantic entities, perform Automatic Machine Translation, etc.

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 recursively annotate texts, which gives it the power of a Turing machine.

NooJ is based on the Object Oriented 'Component Programming' NET
framework. Its most exclusive characteristics are:

NooJ's linguistic engine uses an annotation system synchronized to the text,
that allows morphological, syntactic and semantic grammars to be applied to
texts without modifying the original text; this allows linguists to describe
various phenomena independently, and apply the corresponding grammars in cascade.

Its integration of its inflection and derivation engine into its syntactic
engine allows linguists to program Harris-type transformations.

NooJ includes processes texts and corpora in over 100+ file formats,
including all variants of UNICODE, ASCII, HTML, MS-OFFICE, etc.; its
linguistic engine is multilingual; it can import information from, and export
its annotations back to XML documents; NooJ command-line program and direct
Object Oriented API make it much easier to integrate any of its functionalities
into other applications, etc.

NooJ is used as a linguistic development platform, an information retrieval
system or a terminological extractor. It is also used to teach linguistics and
computational linguistics.

To learn more about NooJ: www.nooj4nlp.net.

As in previous INTEX/NooJ conferences, this meeting will be the opportunity
for 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
