The 9th Konferenz zur Verarbeitung natürlicher Sprache ("conference on natural language processing", KONVENS) will take place at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, BBAW) from September 30th through October 2nd, 2008. The central theme of the Konvens 2008 will be text resources and lexical knowledge. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Techniques, tools, and models from the field of computational linguistics dealing with digitization, linguistic annotation (based on standard annotation schemas) and computer-based processing of digital speech data. * Methods for the acquisition of lexical knowledge from digitized and linguistically annotated text resources of various text genres and period of origin (for example statistical and rule-based approaches, machine learning approaches, computer-aided lexicography). * Approaches to modeling of lexical knowledge in digital media for various purposes (for example in the context of lexicography, the use of digital lexical resources for research and teaching, design of ontologies for automatic information retrieval, or the development of computer-readable lexicons for automated natural language processing). Submissions of completed and previously unpublished work in research, development, application, and evaluation relevant to the aforementioned topics are welcome. Also welcome are submissions to the poster and demonstration session, in which resources, tools, and ongoing projects may be presented. Talks, posters, and demonstrations should explore the potential and perspectives of speech and text technology for the development of lexical knowledge. Also of interest are works focusing on the comparative evaluation of diverse resources, techniques, and tools. The official conference languages are German and English. All accepted submissions (full papers and short paper versions of posters and software demonstrations) will be published in the conference proceedings available at the conference.
