***1st Call for Papers*** **The Fourth Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 2005)** Barcelona, 9-10 December 2005 URL: http://clic.fil.ub.es/personal/civit/tlt05cfp.html WORKSHOP MOTIVATION AND AIMS Treebanks are a language resource that provides annotations of natural languages at various levels of structure: at the word level, the phrase level, the sentence level, and sometimes also at the level of function-argument structure. 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. There are a number of on-going projects on compilation of representative treebanks for languages that still lack them (Bulgarian, Catalan, Danish, Portugese, Spanish, Turkish) and a number of on-going projects on compilation of treebanks for specific purposes for languages that already have them (English). In addition, there are projects that go beyond syntactic analysis to include different kinds of semantic and pragmatic annotation. The practices of building syntactically processed corpora have proved that aiming at more detailed description of the data becomes more and more theory-dependent (Prague Dependency Treebank and other dependency-based treebanks such as the Danish dependency treebank, the Italian treebank (TUT), and the Turkish treebank (METU); Verbmobil HPSG Treebanks, Polish HPSG Treebank, Bulgarian HPSG-based Treebank, etc.). Therefore the development of treebanks and formal linguistic theories need to be more tightly connected in order to ensure the necessary information flow between them. This series of workshops aims at being a forum for researchers and advanced students working in these areas. The fourth workshop will be held in Barcelona, Spain, 9-10 December 2005. (The first was held in Sozopol, Bulgaria in September 2002; see http://www.bultreebank.org/Proceedings.html), the second one in Växjö, Sweden in November 2003 (http://w3.msi.vxu.se/%7Erics/TLT2003/ and the third one in Tübingen, Germany in December 2004 (http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/tlt04/). TOPICS OF INTEREST We invite submission of papers on topics relevant to treebanks and linguistic theories, including but not limited to: design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks; applications of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge and NLP; the role of linguistic theories in treebank development; treebanks as a basis for linguistic research; semantically annotated treebanks; evaluation of treebanks; tools for creation and management of treebanks; standards for treebanks. IMPORTANT DATES Deadline for workshop abstract submission 11 July 2005 Notification of acceptance 7 September 2005 Final version of paper for workshop proceedings 7 October 2005 Workshop 9-10 December 2005 SUBMISSIONS We invite extended abstracts (maximum 1500 words) describing existing research connected to the topics of the workshop. Please note that as reviewing will be blind, the abstract should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991)...". Electronic submission (ps or pdf) is strongly encouraged. Each submission should additionally include in the accompanying email: title; author(s); affiliation(s); and contact author's e-mail address, postal address, telephone and fax numbers. Abstracts should be sent to: mcivit_(on)_ub.edu clearly indicating in the subject line: "TLT05 submission" The presentation at the workshop will be 25 minutes long (20 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion). The final version of the accepted papers may not exceed 12 A4 pages.
