Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora
Workshop to be held on July 14th
University of Birmingham, 14-17 July

Workshop motivation and aims

A lot of syntactically annotated corpora have been created
recently for various languages. Therefore, the question of
applicability and usefulness of such resources seems to have
become of big importance. Syntactically annotated corpora can be
viewed in two ways: 1) as a reliable base for resource creation:
further annotation (for example, semantic and discourse
annotation); automatic extraction of linguistic knowledge
(grammar and lexicon extraction; creation of automatic parsing
tools etc.) and environment for testing tools.; 2) as a base for
navigation and search: query languages and support engines.

We envisage a one-day workshop and 10-12 presentations.

Topics of interest:

- creation of resources on top of syntactic corpora;
- various kinds of knowledge extraction;
- creation and testing of parsing tools;
- search languages;
- symbolic and subsymbolic methods for syntactic corpora
- software systems for management and accessibility to
syntactically annotated corpora;
- various applications of syntactic corpora.

Important dates

Deadline for workshop abstract submission: 29th May 2005

Notification of acceptance: 15th June 2005

Final version of paper: 30th June 2005


Papers should describe existing research connected to the topics
of the workshop. The presentation at the workshop will be 30
