Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 06-Feb-2014

Meeting Description:

VisLR aims at bringing together people from visual analytics and computational
linguistics to discuss the potentials and the challenges related to
visualizing language data and in particular language resources. Linguistics
has a long tradition of visually representing language patterns, from tree
representations in syntax to spectograms in phonetics. However, the large
amounts and ever-increasing complexity of today's resources call for new ways
of visually encoding a multitude of abstract information on language in order
to assure and enhance the quality and usability of these language resources.

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions on research demonstrating the development, use and evaluation of visualization techniques for language resources. This includes work applying existing visualization techniques to language resources as well as research on new visualization techniques that are specifically targeted to the needs of language resources. Particular concern is given to papers aiming at the interoperability of the described visualization techniques.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Innovative visualization techniques for language data, in particular language resources
- Challenges for visualizing different types of data, in particular spoken and signed language data
- Resource validation and enhancement using visualization
- Interactive visualizations as interfaces
- New infrastructures for language data visualization; visualization components
- Evaluation of visualization techniques
- Strategies and issues for open distribution
- Interactive visualizations for (facilitating) the understanding and tuning of algorithms operating on language resources

Papers must describe original (completed or in progress) and unpublished work. We invite short papers (4 pages) and long papers (8 pages). When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their reuse, replicability of experiments, including evaluation ones, etc.

Important Dates:

Paper submission deadline: 6 February 2014
Notification of acceptance: 10 March 2014
Camera-ready papers due: 28 March 2014
Workshop: 31 May 2014
