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, etc.

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 construction.

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 NooJ.
-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

You are cordially invited to join us for NooJ 2011 Conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia from June 13 to June 15, 2011.
