Meeting Description:

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb
(FFZG), Croatian Language Technologies Society (HDJT) the Laboratoire
de Sémio-Linguistique et Didactique (LASELDI) of the University Franche-
Comté and the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme et de l'Environnement
Ledoux organize the 2011 NooJ Conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia from 13-
15 June, 2011.

NooJ is both a corpus processing tool and a linguistic development
environment: it allows linguists to formalize several levels of linguistic
phenomena: orthography and spelling; lexicons of simple words; multiword
units and frozen expressions; inflectional, derivational and productive
morphology; local, structural syntax and transformational syntax. For each
of these levels NooJ provides linguists with one or more formal tools
specifically designed to facilitate the description of each phenomenon, as
well as parsing tools designed to be as computationally efficient as possible.
This approach distinguishes NooJ from most computational linguistic tools,
which provide a single formalism that could describe every linguistic
phenomena. As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows users to apply
sophisticated linguistic queries to large corpora in order to build indices and
concordances, annotate texts automatically, perform statistical analyses,

NooJ is freely available and linguistic modules can already be freely
downloaded for Acadian, Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese,
Croatian, French, English, German, Hebrew, Greek, Hungarian, Italian,
Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish. A dozen other modules are under

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 developments;
-offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one
advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using
-provide the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of
NooJ itself (v3.0).

Topics of interest:

-Semantic analysis
-Syntactic analysis
-Lexical analysis
-Linguistic resources
