2nd Call for Papers

NooJ is a freeware, linguistic engineering development environment used to
formalize various types of textual phenomena (orthography, lexical and
productive morphology, local, structural and transformational syntax) using a
large gamut of computational devices (from Finite-State Automata to Augmented
Recursive Transition Networks). NooJ includes tools to construct, test, debug,
maintain and accumulate large sets linguistic resources, and can apply them to
large texts.

Modules for a dozen languages are already available for free download: Arabic,
Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, English, French, Hebrew, Hungarian,
Italian, Polish, Portuguese Greek and Spanish. A dozen other modules are under
construction.The conference intends to

- give NooJ users and researchers in Linguistics and in Computational
Linguistics the opportunity to meet and share their experience as developers,
researchers and teachers;
- present to NooJ users the latest linguistic resources and NLP applications
developed for/with NooJ, its latest functionalities, as well as its future
- offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one
advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using NooJ.
- be the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ itself
