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

This year, TLT will be accompanied by a workshop on the Annotation and
Exploitation of Parallel Corpora (AEPC), on 2 December. More detailed
information is available at: http://math.ut.ee/tlt9/aepc/

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
