 CALL FOR PAPERS
FROM TEXTS TO TAGS: ISSUES IN MULTILINGUAL LANGUAGE ANALYSIS

 EACL SIGDAT WORKSHOP
 Dublin, Ireland - March 27, 1995

 Third Announcement

Workshop organized by the ACL special interest group SIGDAT
to be held in conjunction with the meeting of the European Chapter
of the Association of Computational Linguistics. The meeting will be
co-chaired by Susan Armstrong, ISSCO and Evelyne Tzoukerman, AT&T Bell
Laboratories.

 Submission deadline: Jan 23
 Notice of acceptance/rejection: February 10
 Camera ready copy due: March 1

With the growing amount of multilingual corpus data becoming
available, there is a pressing need to explore issues in
representation and analysis of these texts. Although extensive and
leading work has been accomplished for languages such as English, for
the most part many theoretical and concrete issues need to be resolved
in the representation and tagging of other languages.

The focus of this workshop is on multilingual text analysis, from the
level of text itself, e.g. tokenization, sentence separation, etc, to
morphosyntactic analysis, specifically tagging. We intend to focus on
tagging since it appears to be the case that, from a computational
point of view, part of speech tagging is often an important
prerequisite to further structural analysis. Additionally, many NLP
systems can make use of tagged corpora for various applications.
However, tasks such as tokenization and tagging continue to raise
serious challenges in multilingual text analysis, due to differing
types of morphological characteristics across languages.

 Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to):

 - tokenization and segmentation
 - interfaces between morphological analysis and part-of-speech tagging
 - size and choice of tagset
 - defining and refining new tag sets
 - mapping between tag sets
 - universal vs. language specific tags
 - multilingual approaches to tagging

We invite submissions on topics that in general reflect an awareness
of differences and similarities in working on multilingual text.
We also welcome substantive descriptions of newly started and ongoing
projects.
