Meeting Description:

TLT10 - The 10th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories
Heidelberg University, Germany
6-7 January 2012

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related to treebanking, encompassing descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational aspects of treebanks. The next edition will take place in Heidelberg, Germany, on 6-7 January 2012, and is hosted by the Institute for Computational Linguistics at Heidelberg University.

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 often extend to functional and predicate-argument structure. 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. A growing number of projects 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 treebanks have shown that there is a relation between formal linguistic theory and the practice of annotation. Since the practices of building treebanks have proved that aiming at more detailed descriptions 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.

Invited Speakers:

- Eduard Hovy, University of Southern California
- Victoria Rosén, University of Bergen

Call for Papers:

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.

The workshop invites submissions presenting unpublished research on relevant innovative work in treebanking, including the relations and links between various aspects of morphological, syntactic, semantic, and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 long and short papers including, but not limited to the following topics:

- Design principles and annotation schemas for treebanks
- Applications of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge and in NLP
- 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

Important Dates:

Deadline for paper submission: 22 September 2011
Notification of acceptance: 28 October 2011
