Meeting Description:

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and treebanks. The 14th edition of TLT will take place at the Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, on 11–12 December 2015.

For almost 15 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.

​TLT14 – the 14th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories ( – will take place in Warsaw, Poland, on 11–12 December 2015.
