CONSTRAINT GRAMMAR WORKSHOP - CALL FOR PAPERS
CG workshop: New developments in Constraint Grammar in
conjunction with NoDaLiDa 2007, Tartu, Estonia, May
Within full-scale parsing applications, constraint grammar is the
dominant framework for parsing Nordic languages. It is used in
the industry (e.g. Microsoft/Lingsoft, Connexor), and it also
constitutes the fundament for several academic projects aiming at
corpus tagging, treebanks and pedagogical programs (e.g. Odense,
The workshop is part of The 16th Nordic Conference of
Computational Linguistics, May 24-26 2007 in Tartu, Estonia.
All topics related to constraint grammar are of interest. We will
especially be interested in the following themes:
* Rule evaluation
* Technical performance
* Linguistic performance (precision, recall) and evaluation
* CG and corpus annotation
* CGs for "new" (i.e. not previously CG-treated) languages
* Semantic layers in CG
* CG-based applications
FORMAT OF THE WORKSHOP
The workshop will consist of three parts.
- a tutorial on open-source constraint grammar formalisms.
- a main section with ordinary talks, resulting from an open
- an open roundtable discussion A preliminary conference program
will be published at the workshop www pages.
