TLT11 The 11th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic
Theories Lisbon, Portugal November 30 - December 1, 2012


TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic
of linguistics and tree banks. The 11th edition of TLT will take
place in Lisbon, Portugal on November 30 - December 1, 2012, and
is hosted by CLUL at the university of Lisbon.

This year, TLT will be accompanied by the second Workshop on
Annotation of Corpora for Research in the Humanities ( ACRH-2)
that takes place on Nov 29, 2012. More information is available
at the ACRH-2 website
http://alfclul.clul.ul.pt/crpc/acrh2/index.html .

TLT has served as an ideal venue for new and ongoing high-quality
work related to syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks,
encompassing descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational
aspects of treebanks. Submissions are invited for papers,
posters, and demonstrations which present research on treebanks
and their intersection with linguistics, natural language
processing, and other related fields.


Treebanks are language resources that provide annotations at
various levels of linguistic structure beyond the word level.
They typically provide syntactic constituent or dependency
structures for sentences and sometimes functional and
predicate-argument structures. Treebanks have become crucially
important for the development of data-driven approaches to
natural language processing, human language technologies, grammar
extraction and linguistic research in general. Additionally,
there are projects that explore annotation beyond syntactic
structure (including, for instance, semantic, pragmatic and
rhetorical annotation) and beyond a single language (for
instance, parallel treebanks).

Experiences in building syntactically processed corpora have
shown that there is a relation between formal linguistic theory
and the practice of syntactic annotation. Since the practices of
building syntactically-processed corpora have proved that aiming
at more detailed description of the data becomes more and more
theory-dependent, the connections between treebank development
and linguistic theories need to be tightly connected in order to
ensure the necessary information flow between them. This series
of workshops aims to provide a forum for researchers and advanced
students working in these areas.


The workshop invites submissions that discuss relevant innovative
work in treebanking, including the relations and links between
various aspects of morphological, syntactic, semantic, and
pragmatic annotation; furthermore, submissions describing work on
parallel treebanks and/or cross-language annotation schemas, on
the relation between linguistic theory and the practice of
annotation, and on applications of information in treebanks are
encouraged as well.

We invite submission of papers and posters on the following

* design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks
* applications of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge and
  in NLP
* the role of linguistic theories in treebank development
* treebanks as a basis for linguistic research
* semantically and pragmatically annotated treebanks
* evaluation and quality control of treebanks
* tools for creation and management of treebanks
* treebanks of less-resourced languages
* theories, schemas, and applications for parallel treebanks
* standards for treebanks
