Meeting Description:

QueryVis - Workshop on Innovative Corpus Query and Visualization Tools
at Nodalida 2015, Vilnius (Lithuania), May 11, 2015

Recent years have seen an increased interest in and availability of many different kinds of corpora. These range from small, but carefully annotated treebanks to large parallel corpora and very large monolingual corpora for big data research. It remains a challenge to query the multilayer annotations of small corpora, to efficiently access large corpora as well as to visualize the query results.

When dealing with large corpora, query tools need to scale in terms of processing speed and reporting through statistical information and visualization options. This becomes evident, for example, when dealing with very large corpora (such as complete Wikipedia corpora) or multi-parallel corpora (such as Europarl or JRC Acquis). The goal of the workshop is to gather researchers who develop or evaluate new corpus query and visualization tools for linguistics, language technology or related disciplines.

Workshop Format:

We are planning for a half-day workshop with paper presentations, demos and an invited talk.

Call for Papers:

Topics to be Covered:

Querying corpora with multiple levels of annotation
Querying parallel and multi-parallel corpora
Visualization of annotation and alignment
Visualization of query results over very large corpora
Querying by example
Querying multimodal corpora

We are seeking short papers (4 pages) or long papers (8 pages) on the topics specified above. Papers should be formated according to the Nodalida guidelines. Submission will be through EasyChair.

Important Dates:

Paper submission: 16 March 2015
Information to authors: 17 April 2015
Final papers due: 1 May 2015
