|Meeting Description:||ESSLLI-13 Workshop on Extrinsic Parse Improvement (EPI)
12-16 August 2013
The workshop on Extrinsic Parse Improvement (EPI) will provide a forum for researchers who work on improving parsing as pre- or post-processing steps, that is, for adapting and improving parses without modifying the parser itself. The focus of the workshop is on methods for modifying treebank representations, which can then be used to train parsers; on methods for automatically extending the training set with new examples; and on methods for improving parser output by post-corrections, or even on detecting reliable or deviant parses.
All these methods are used regularly for adapting parsers to new types of text, with different goals: either to adapt the syntactic annotation scheme to improve parsing performance (Manning and Klein 2003), to improve parser output (Hall and Novak 2011), to adapt a parser to new domains (Candito et al. 2011), to parse the web (Le Roux et al. 2012), to find errors in treebanks or parses (Dickinson and Smith 2011), or to discover reliable parses (Kawahara and Uchimoto 2008). However, many of these methods are used only in specific contexts. This workshop will bring together researchers from different areas to foster cross-fertilization between different areas of parsing correction and adaptation. We are especially encouraging young researchers to submit completed work as well as work in progress, which may profit from discussions with other researchers.
The workshop will be held as part of ESSLLI in August 2013 in Duesseldorf, Germany. More information about ESSLLI can be found at the ESSLLI web pages at http://esslli2013.de/.
