Meeting Description:

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and treebanks. The 13th edition of TLT will take place at the University of Tübingen, Germany on December 12-13, 2014.

For more than 10 years now, TLT has served as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related to syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks; with a focus on all the aspects of treebanking -- descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational -- but also going beyond treebanks, including other levels of annotation such as frame semantics, coreference, or events, to name only a few.

Invited Speakers:

Sandra Kübler (Indiana University, Indiana, USA)
Gertjan van Noord (University of Groningen, The Netherlands)

Workshop Motivation and Aims:

Treebanks have proved to be crucial resources for very important NLP applications, such as machine translation and information extraction, as well as supporting resources for various NLP tasks, such as high-quality parsing and POS tagging.

More recent trends in treebank related research have focused a variety of initiatives, such as annotating deep syntactic and syntactic-semantic interface information; (semi)-automatic conversion of existing treebanks into deeper linguistic formats; multilingual and crosslingual treebanking, including attempts for 'language universal' treebanking; enriching treebanks with additional layers of linguistic annotation as well as world knowledge layer; dynamic treebanking involving a close connection between parsing grammar and manual annotation; designing web services for observing and exploiting theoretically diverse treebanks; mapping syntactic and semantic knowledge to Linked Open Data information (LOD).

Program Committee:

Verena Henrich (University of Tübingen, Germany; co-chair)
Erhard Hinrichs (University of Tübingen, Germany; co-chair)
Petya Osenova (Sofia University, Bulgaria; co-chair)
Adam Przepiórkowski (Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland; co-chair)

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.

Workshop Topics:

The workshop invites the submission of papers, posters, and software demonstrations on original and unpublished research on the following topics, including, but not limited to:

- Design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks
- The use of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge
- The use of treebanks for NLP applications
- The role of linguistic theories in treebank development
- Treebanks as a knowledge source for linguistic research
- Treebank annotation beyond syntax: semantics, pragmatics, and discourse
- Evaluation and quality control of treebanks
- Tools for creation and management of treebanks
- Treebanks for lesser-resourced languages
- Theories, schemas, and applications for parallel treebanks
- Standards for treebanks
- (Semi-)automatic methods for creating large treebanks
- Mapping of treebanks to Linked Open Data resources
- Domain-specific treebanks
- The future of treebanks and treebanking
- Multi-word expressions in treebanks
