Message 2: Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora
Date: 30-Apr-2005

Subject: Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora

Full Title: Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora

Date: 14-Jul-2005 - 14-Jul-2005
Location: Birmingham, United Kingdom
Contact Person: Petya Osenova
Meeting Email: petyabultreebank.org

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 29-May-2005

Meeting Description:

Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora
Workshop to be held on July 14th
University of Birmingham, 14-17 July

Workshop motivation and aims

A lot of syntactically annotated corpora have been created recently for various
languages. Therefore, the question of applicability and usefulness of such
resources seems to have become of big importance. Syntactically annotated
corpora can be viewed in two ways: 1) as a reliable base for resource creation:
further annotation (for example, semantic and discourse annotation); automatic
extraction of linguistic knowledge (grammar and lexicon extraction; creation of
automatic parsing tools etc.) and environment for testing tools.; 2) as a base
for navigation and search: query languages and support engines.

We envisage a one-day workshop and 10-12 presentations.

Topics of interest:

- creation of resources on top of syntactic corpora;
- various kinds of knowledge extraction;
- creation and testing of parsing tools;
- search languages;
- symbolic and subsymbolic methods for syntactic corpora exploration;
- software systems for management and accessibility to syntactically annotated
- various applications of syntactic corpora.

Important dates

Deadline for workshop abstract submission: 29th May 2005

Notification of acceptance: 15th June 2005

Final version of paper: 30th June 2005


Papers should describe existing research connected to the topics of the
workshop. The presentation at the workshop will be 30 minutes long (25 minutes
for presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion). Each submission
should show: title; author(s); affiliation(s); and contact author's e-mail
address, postal address, telephone and fax numbers. Abstracts (maximum 500
words, plain-text format) should be sent to:
