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

linguists, computational linguists as well as all researchers who work with/on
Arabic corpora.

Call for Papers

NooJ is a freeware, linguistic engineering development environment used to
formalize various types of textual phenomena (orthography, lexical and
productive morphology, local, structural and transformational syntax) using a
large gamut of computational devices (from Finite-State Automata to Augmented
Recursive Transition Networks). NooJ includes tools to construct, test, debug,
maintain and
accumulate large sets of linguistic resources, and can apply them to large texts.

Modules for a dozen languages are already available for free download:
Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, English, French, Hebrew,
Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. A dozen of other modules are
under construction.

We invite the submission of papers until the March 29, 2009 either in English or
in French. The abstracts should contain the title of the article, the name, the
institution, the surface mail and the electronic address of each co-author. The
abstracts should not exceed one page, and should be submitted from the workshop
web site: www.miracl.rnu.tn/nooj.

All proposals will be reviewed by the scientific committee. You will be given
notice about the acceptance of the proposals no later than May 04, 2009.
