SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS (Extended Dealines: 31st March) Workshop on A Registry of Linguistic Data Categories within an Integrated Language Resources Repository Area (endorsed by the project EU project INTERA and by ISO/TC 37/SC 4) http://www.dfki.de/%7Edeclerck/reposi tory_lrec04.htm Centro Cultural de Belem, Lisbon, Portugal 29th May 2004 Workshop to be held in conjunction with the 4th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC 2004) Main conference: 26-27-28 May 2004 http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2 004/ Aim The goal of this workshop is to contribute to the development of an integrated language resources repository and web services to support it. The workshop will bring together researchers, developers and commercial providers who are interested in the development of an infrastructure to support distributed access to language resources, exchange and interoperability. Background and motivation The motivation for the workshop is provided by the European project INTERA and ISO committee TC37/SC4, both of which are working to develop a centralized, universally accessible standardized Data Category Registry for linguistic resources and their annotations. Papers presented at the workshop and the discussions surrounding them will address issues of standardized metadata for accessing language resources on the web, and appropriate representations (including suitable levels of abstraction) for, and access methods to, linguistic annotations to be included in the Data Category Registry. The registry will include annotation “fragments” that can be used as is, combined with other fragments, or modified or extended for specific uses in annotation documents associated with language resources of all kinds. Workshop topics · Description of Metadata for language resources (written or spoken, but also multimodal resources) · Description of existing category schemes for specific types of annotation that could be incorporated into the linguistic Data Category Registry, either “as is” or with modification · Detailed proposals for the format, organization, domain coverage (e.g., syntax, morphology, co-reference, etc.), and level of abstraction for linguistic data included in the Registry Considerations for representation of categories for different languages (e.g., how to relate English morpho-syntactic categories to those for Japanese or Estonian?) · The role of ontological information to support categories in the Registry, and/or suggestions for implementation · Procedures for management and access to the Registry · The role of Data Categories for the interoperability of resources and/or tools- · Web access to language resources and data in the Registry · Web services for language resources and the Data Category Registry Format of the Workshop The workshop will comprise of oral presentations of previously submitted papers that went through a double peer review process. The proceedings of the workshop will be published by the local organising committee.
