Call for Papers

Die 9. Konvens 2008 wird von der Gesellschaft für linguistische
Datenverarbeitung (GLDV) in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Zentrum Sprache der
Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften veranstaltet.

The 9th Konferenz zur Verarbeitung natürlicher Sprache (''conference on natural
language processing'', KONVENS) will take place at the Berlin-Brandenburg
Academy of Sciences (Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, BBAW)
from September 30th through October 2nd, 2008.

The central theme of the Konvens 2008 will be text resources and lexical
knowledge. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Techniques, tools, and models from the field of computational linguistics
dealing with digitization, linguistic annotation (based on standard annotation
schemas) and computer-based processing of digital speech data.
- Methods for the acquisition of lexical knowledge from digitized and
linguistically annotated text resources of various text genres and period of
origin (for example statistical and rule-based approaches, machine learning
approaches, computer-aided lexicography).
- Approaches to modeling of lexical knowledge in digital media for various
purposes (for example in the context of lexicography, the use of digital lexical
resources for research and teaching, design of ontologies for automatic
information retrieval, or the development of computer-readable lexicons for
automated natural language processing).

Submissions of completed and previously unpublished work in research,
development, application, and evaluation relevant to the aforementioned topics
are welcome. Also welcome are submissions to the poster and demonstration
session, in which resources, tools, and ongoing projects may be presented.

Talks, posters, and demonstrations should explore the potential and perspectives
of speech and text technology for the development of lexical knowledge. Also of
interest are works focusing on the comparative evaluation of diverse resources,
techniques, and tools.

The official conference languages are German and English. All accepted
submissions (full papers and short paper versions of posters and software
demonstrations) will be published in the conference proceedings available at the
conference.

Call Deadline: 02-Apr-2008

Meeting Description:

Un livre retrouvé de F. de Saussure, De l'essence double du langage (dans Ecrits
de linguistique générale, P., Gallimard, 2002) confirme que la pensée du
linguiste genevois a été depuis un siècle l'objet de profonds malentendus. En
particulier, le programme saussurien d'une linguistique des valeurs pures -
conçue comme une écriture algébrique - est resté peu documenté jusqu'à la
publication des manuscrits nouvellement découverts.
Faire le point sur ce programme énoncé avec netteté dans ces textes, et sur sa
portée, tel est le propos du colloque.
Organisé par l'université de Namur, où se tient depuis plusieurs années un
séminaire de recherches néo-saussuriennes, et par l'Institut Ferdinand de
Saussure, le colloque, première rencontre internationale consacrée à cette
question, comprendra trois volets: le programme des valeurs pures, des valeurs
en général, développements d'une linguistique néo-saussurienne.

Communications : de 30 à 40 minutes. Les résumés seront disponibles en .doc et
PDF pour les figures. On peut se référer à la feuille de style du site Texto !
(Espace éditorial).

Titres et résumés à adresser pour le 2 avril 2008 à Jacques Coursil
jacquescoursil.com, à François Rastier lpe2ext.jussieu.fr, à Simon Bouquet
bouquetext.jussieu.fr, à Jean Giot jean.giotfundp.ac.be .

Posters : A adresser aux mêmes pour le 2 avril 2008.

Les communications seront suivies d'un débat et les posters seront discutés.

L'évaluation des propositions sera close le 2 mai. Le programme sera diffusé
immédiatement avec les bulletins d'inscription et avec les informations pratiques.
