Meeting URL: http://www.spmrl.org/tag/spmrl2013.html

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Morphology; Syntax

Meeting Description:

The SPMRL series of workshop provides a forum for research in parsing morphologically-rich languages, with the goal of identifying cross-cutting issues in the annotation and parsing methodology for such languages, which typically have more flexible word order and/or higher word-form variation than English.
