Title: State of the Art in Computational Morphology
Subtitle: Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology, SFCM 2009, Zurich, Switzerland, September 4, 2009, Proceedings
Edited By: Cerstin Mahlow
Michael Piotrowski
URL: http://www.springer.com/computer/artificial/book/978-3-642-04130-3
Series Title: CCIS
Description:

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Workshop on Systems
and Frameworks for Computational Morphology, SFCM 2009, held in Z├╝rich,
Switzerland, in September 2009.

The workshop had three main goals: to stimulate discussion among reseachers
and developers and to offer an up-to-date overview of available systems for
German morphology which provide deep analyses and are suitable for
generating specific word forms; to stimulate discussion among developers of
general frameworks that can be used to implement morphological components
for several languages; to discuss aspects of evaluation of morphology
systems and possible future competitions or tasks, such as a new edition of
the Morpholympics.
