Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora
Workshop to be held on July 14th
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:
Deadline for workshop abstract submission: 3rd June 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:
