(Submission deadline = September 12) The Ninth International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT9) will be held in Tartu, Estonia on 3-4 December 2010 at the University of Tartu (http://math.ut.ee/tlt9). This year, TLT will be accompanied by a workshop on the Annotation and Exploitation of Parallel Corpora (AEPC), on 2 December. More detailed information is available at: http://math.ut.ee/tlt9/aepc/ 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. Workshop Motivation and Aims 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. Workshop Topics 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 topics: * 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 Invited Speakers * Anke Lüdeling, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin * Joakim Nivre, Uppsala University Important Dates * Deadline for paper submission: 12 September 2010 * Notification of acceptance: 10 October 2010 * Final version of paper for workshop proceedings: 1 November 2010 * Workshop: 3-4 December 2010 Instructions for submission are available at: http://math.ut.ee/tlt9/submissions.html Program Committee * Markus Dickinson, USA (co-chair) * Kaili Müürisep, Estonia (co-chair) * Marco Passarotti, Italy (co-chair) * Anne Abeillé, France * David Bamman, USA * Eckhard Bick, Denmark * Ann Bies, USA * Igor Boguslavsky, Russia * Dan Flickinger, USA * Anette Frank, Germany * Eva Hajičová, Czech Republic * Dag Haug, Norway * Erhard Hinrichs, Germany * Sandra Kübler, USA * Jonas Kuhn, Germany * Anna Kupść, France * Anke Lüdeling, Germany * Simonetta Montemagni, Italy * Petya Osenova, Bulgaria * Kiril Simov, Bulgaria * Marco Tadić, Croatia * Martin Volk, Switzerland Local Organization Committee * Kadri Muischnek * Mare Koit * Krista Liin * Kaili Müürisep * Urve Talvik For more information, contact tlt9.program_(at)_gmail.com or see the website: http://math.ut.ee/tlt9 _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_mailman.let.uu.nl http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
