Meeting Description:

The Second Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology
(sfcm 2011)
http://sfcm2011.org/
Workshop date: Friday, August 26, 2011
Location: University of Zurich, Switzerland

Updates:

- EasyChair is now open for submissions
- The proceedings of sfcm 2011 will be published by Springer-Verlag

The Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology (sfcm) aims to bring together researchers and developers in the area of computational morphology. The focus of sfcm are actual, working systems and frameworks based on linguistic principles and providing linguistically motivated analyses and/or generation on the basis of linguistic categories.

In 2011, sfcm will take place for the second time. The proceedings of sfcm 2009 were published by Springer-Verlag under the title 'State of the Art in Computational Morphology.' The proceedings of sfcm 2011 will again be published by Springer-Verlag.

From the point of view of computational linguistics, morphological resources form the basis for all higher-level applications. This is especially true for languages with a rich morphology like German, Finnish, or Polish. A morphology component should thus be capable of analyzing single wordforms as well as whole corpora. For many practical applications, not only morphological analysis, but also generation is required, i.e., the production of surfaces corresponding to specific categories.

Apart from uses in computational linguistics, there are numerous practical applications that can benefit from morphological analysis and/or generation or even require it, for example in text processing, user interfaces, or information retrieval. These applications have specific requirements for morphological components, including requirements from software engineering, such as programming interfaces or robustness.

The workshop has three main goals:

-To stimulate discussion among researchers and developers and to offer an up-to-date overview of available morphological systems for specific purposes.
-To stimulate discussion among developers of general frameworks that can be used to implement morphological components for several languages.
-To discuss aspects of evaluation of morphology systems and possible future competitions or tasks.


Call for Participation:

The Second Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology (SFCM 2011)

Registration and program: http://sfcm2011.org/

Workshop date: Friday, August 26, 2011

Location: University of Zurich, Switzerland

Deadline for registration: June 26, 2011

The Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology (SFCM) aims to bring together researchers and developers in the area of computational morphology. The focus of SFCM are actual, working systems and frameworks based on linguistic principles and providing linguistically motivated analyses and/or generation on the basis of linguistic categories.

In 2011, SFCM will take place for the second time. We are happy to announce that SFCM 2011 will feature an invited talk by

Lauri Karttunen (Stanford University): Beyond Morphology - Pattern Matching with FST

SFCM 2011 is thus not only an excellent opportunity for meeting other researchers and for learning about current work and recent developments in systems and frameworks for computational morphology, but you will also get to see and hear one of the most influential researchers in this field in person.

You are cordially invited to attend SFCM 2011, listen to the talks, watch the demos, and participate in the discussions--and join us for a nice dinner after the workshop. Please register online at http://sfcm2011.org/ before June 26, 2011.
