** SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENSION: 7 October 2007 ** Final Call for Paper Automated Syntactic Annotations for Interoperable Language Resources City University of Hong Kong 8 January 2008 http://icgl.ctl.cityu.edu.hk/2008/html/workshop.jsp The First Workshop on "Automated Syntactic Annotations for Interoperable Language Resources" will be held at the First International Conference on Interoperability for Language Resources, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 9-11 January 2008 (http://icgl.ctl.cityu.edu.hk/). This Workshop is organized under the auspices of ISO TC37/SC4. We are now able to parse huge amount of data (due to computer speed increase and parsing optimization) and yet we still do not have more information than before about the quality of the results. The task is not easy because the current amount of data does not allow manual check anymore. A primary aim of the workshop is to identify and evaluate natural language processing technologies that can be usefully applied to the creation and annotation of language resources to be used for practical tasks. Here, usefulness is defined according to, in addition to accuracy and efficiency, linguistic granularity that the tools apply and also the degree of compliance to ISO standards to ensure interoperability. A second aim of the workshop is to see how language resources can support the development of language processing applications that are increasingly important to the global society. Additionally, the situations for different languages are not the same. At least two important criteria need to be considered for the evaluation of parsing technologies: 1) the availability of large corpora for the language, and 2) current mainstream evaluation metrics may not be suited for that particular language. We invite papers that demonstrate how to inter-link the results of (multilingual or monolingual) parsers via the use of common categories/structures in the resulting annotation, or categories/structures that can be mapped to one another, and how these can contribute to the extension of (multilingual or monolingual) language resources. Pertinent side issues may include the evaluation of the parsers, the resulting language resources, and the detection/correction of residual errors. The commonality of categories can be ensured by a common annotation framework for syntactic phenomena, by interoperable annotation frameworks, or the mapping of the results of syntactic parsers into semantic representations that can be used for linking results of various parsers. Papers are also invited that discuss parsing requirements to produce application-specific language resources for tasks such as syntax-semantics mapping, text markup for the semantic web, terminology extraction, and ontology construction.
