Meeting Description:

The goal of the event is to inform researchers as to the current projects and
studies that identify, investigate, and (attempt to) resolve issues that relate
to morphological analysis and generation, as well as provide researchers the
opportunity to meet, interact and present their work among the broader community
of NLP researchers.

Call for Papers

The development of core technologies has an important role to play within the
context of Natural Language Processing (NLP). Morphological Analysis and
Generation are important components for building computational grammars. As
small parts of NLP, Analysis and Generation allow for greater efficiency and
accuracy in the development of various language applications.

Morphological Analyzer is a program for analyzing the morphology of an input
word; the analyzer reads the inflected surface form of each word in a text and
provides its lexical form. Generation is the inverse process. The Morphological
Generator takes a lemma/root and a morpho-lexical description of the intended
word-form as input and it generates a word-form.

Both Analysis and Generation make use of lexicon, thesaurus, stop lists, and
indexing engines. There are various approaches for morphological analysis and
generation, including rule based methods and machine learning statistical
methods. The processing methods of morphological analyzer and generator vary in
accordance with the characteristics of the target language.

Extensive work is being carried out in the area of NLP, both, in India and
abroad, towards building high quality analysers and generators for various
languages. Building analysers and generators demands the synergy of theoretical
analysis and processing of language; which poses a wide range of challenges both
linguistically as well as computationally.

The two day event aims to provide a platform for researchers in this area to
bring together diverse contributions from theoretical and computational
linguistics, which explore newer approaches to morphological analysis and
generation, and thereby share their experiences and learn from one another.

Abstracts of no more than 500 words (including references) mentioning the title
of the paper, author(s) name, institutional affiliation, and email address
should be submitted by the due date in *.rtf or *.pdf format to the following
email address: ldc-monaparakhciil.stpmy.soft.net.

Important Dates
Last date for submitting the Abstract: 1st November, 2009
Abstract acceptance notification: 10th November, 2009
Last date for submitting full length Papers: 25th December, 2009

Minimal financial support for travel shall be provided to the authors of a few
selected papers.
