Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2021

Meeting Description:

NooJ is a linguistic development environment that allows linguists to formalize a wide range of linguistic phenomena, and then test, adapt, share and accumulate each elementary description so as to build linguistic “modules”, that is, structured libraries of linguistic resources. NooJ is also used as a corpus processor that can launch sophisticated queries over large corpora of texts, in order to produce various results, including concordances, statistical analyses, information extraction, and automatic translation.

NooJ is used in many research centers all over the world, and linguistic modules are available for more than 20 languages. NooJ is also used by a growing number of software companies to develop various Natural Language Processing applications.

Conference goals:
- Give NooJ users and researchers in Linguistics and in Computational Linguistics the opportunity to meet and share their experience as developers, researchers and teachers.
- Present to NooJ users the latest linguistic resources and NLP applications developed for/with NooJ, its latest functionalities, as well as its future developments.
- Offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using NooJ.
- Provide the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ itself (v7).

Call for Papers:

Topics of interest may include (but are in no way limited to):
- Digital Humanities: Corpus Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Literature Studies, Second-Language Teaching, Narrative content analysis, Corpus processing for the Social Sciences.
- Linguistic Resources: Typography, Spelling, Syllabification, Phonemic and Prosodic transcription, Morphology, Lexical Analysis, Local Syntax, Structural Syntax, Transformational Analysis, Paraphrase Generation, Semantic annotations, Semantic analysis.
