Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Syntax

Call Deadline: 12-Sep-2010

Meeting Description:

TLT has served as an ideal venue for new and ongoing high-quality work
related to syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks, encompassing
descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational aspects of treebanks.
Submissions are invited for papers, posters, and demonstrations which
present research on treebanks and their intersection with linguistics, natural
language processing, and other related fields.

Call For Papers

Workshop Motivation and Aims

Treebanks are language resources that provide annotations at various
levels of linguistic structure beyond the word level. They typically
provide syntactic constituent or dependency structures for sentences
and sometimes functional and predicate-argument structures. Treebanks
have become crucially important for the development of data-driven
approaches to natural language processing, human language
technologies, grammar extraction and linguistic research in general.
Additionally, there are projects that explore annotation beyond
syntactic structure (including, for instance, semantic, pragmatic and
rhetorical annotation) and beyond a single language (for instance,
parallel treebanks).

Experiences in building syntactically processed corpora have shown
that there is a relation between formal linguistic theory and the
practice of syntactic annotation. Since the practices of building
syntactically-processed corpora have proved that aiming at more
detailed description of the data becomes more and more
theory-dependent, the connections between treebank development and
linguistic theories need to be tightly connected in order to ensure
the necessary information flow between them. This series of workshops
aims to provide a forum for researchers and advanced students working
in these areas.

Workshop Topics

The workshop invites submissions that discuss relevant innovative work
in treebanking, including the relations and links between various
aspects of morphological, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic
annotation; furthermore, submissions describing work on parallel
treebanks and/or cross-language annotation schemas, on the relation
between linguistic theory and the practice of annotation, and on
applications of information in treebanks are encouraged as well.

We invite submission of papers and posters on the following topics:

- design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks
- applications of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge and in NLP
- the role of linguistic theories in treebank development
- treebanks as a basis for linguistic research
- semantically and pragmatically annotated treebanks
- evaluation and quality control of treebanks
- tools for creation and management of treebanks
- treebanks of less-resourced languages
- theories, schemas, and applications for parallel treebanks
- standards for treebanks
