# Apologies for cross-postings Second and Final Call for Papers ACL 2007 Workshop on Deep Linguistic Processing Workshop to be held at ACL 2007 June 28th, 2007 Prague, Czech Republic http://www.csse.unimelb.edu.au/~tim/events/acl2007-deep/ Paper submission deadline: March 26th, 2007 Invited Speaker: ANETTE FRANK (DFKI) -------------- Background ---------- This workshop is aimed at bringing together the different computational linguistic sub-communities which model language predominantly by way of theoretical syntax, either in the form of a particular theory (e.g. CCG, HPSG, LFG, LTAG+, the Prague School) or a more general framework which draws on theoretical and descriptive linguistics. We characterise this style of computational linguistic research as "deep linguistic processing", due to it aspiring to model the complexity of natural language in rich linguistic representations. Deep linguistic processing has traditionally been concerned with grammar development. The linguistic precision and complexity of the grammars meant that they had to be manually developed and maintained, and were computationally expensive to run. With recent developments in computer hardware, parsing/generation algorithms and statistical learning theory, the way has been opened for deep linguistic processing to be successfully applied to an ever-growing range of languages, domains and applications. This workshop aims to foster existing and new relationships between groups working on deep linguistic processing, highlighting the considerable linguistic, developmental and algorithmic commonalities shared by the various approaches. In the spirit of cross-comparison and collaboration, we will focus on: - grammar engineering (e.g. frameworks for grammar evaluation, best practice in grammar engineering, cross-linguistic/formalism generalisations & comparisons, semantic representation) - treebanking (e.g. frameworks for treebank evaluation/normalisation, grammar extraction/induction, the interface between grammar engineering and treebanking, treebanking methodologies, cross-linguistic/formalism generalisations & comparisons) - system development (e.g. grammar profiling, system integration, preprocessing strategies, robustness enhancement) - parser/generator development (e.g. algorithm development, grammar reversibility, efficiency, evaluation) - machine learning for deep linguistic processing (e.g. parse selection/ranking, supertagging, deep lexical acquisition, grammar induction) - applications of deep linguistic processing (e.g. information extraction, question answering, machine translation, dialogue systems, CALL) Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research concerning deep linguistic processing. The submission deadline is March 26th, 2007. Submissions: ------------ Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word document template that will be made available on the conference Web site (http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/acl2007/). We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these styles, including font size restrictions. As reviewing will be blind, the paper 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) ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Submission will be electronic. The only accepted format for submitted papers is Adobe PDF. The papers must be submitted no later than March 26th, 2007. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed. All submissions should be made via the web form at: http://www.softconf.com/acl07/ACL07-WS7/ Questions regarding the submission procedure should be directed to the workshop organisers at acl2007-deep_(on)_unimelb.edu.au If a paper is being submitted to another conference or workshop, then the workshop organisers must be informed. The START submission page will contain the possibility to enter this information.
