FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS Workshop on Tagging and Shallow Processing of Portuguese (TASHA'2003) University of Lisbon, October 3, 2003 http://tasha2003.di.fc.ul.pt A workshop associated with the XIX Annual Meeting of the Portuguese Linguistics Society http://www.apl.org.pt/xix.htm Scope ----- Recent advances on tagging and other shallow processing tools have confirmed the key importance of these applications to enable subsequent stages of efficient deep linguistic processing, and to improve the quality of information retrieval services and support the semantic web. The goal of this workshop will be to provide a forum to discuss experiences and exchange results between people working in this area, and to review the current state of the art in this diverse field in what concerns the Portuguese language. We would like to invite presentations reporting on recent advances on all aspects of the shallow processing of Portuguese. We encourage the representation of a large, multidisciplinary range of aspects including but not limited to issues related to the entire production cycle of POS taggers and other shallow processing tools such as tokenizers, stemmers, MWU detectors, named entity recognizers, NP chunkers, WSD tools, PP attachment resolvers, terminology extractors, etc., ranging from the collection of stop lists to the integration of these tools into broader systems and applications, and including a.o. methodologies for accurate hand tagging, linguistic resources for training and evaluation, learning algorithms and their eventual tuning to Portuguese, finite-state solutions, evaluation metrics and results, selected linguistic generalizations and specifications, etc. We invite presentations about relevant solutions and approaches to the above issues as well as descriptions or demos of tools, resources, systems or projects.
