MOTIVATION

==========

Partial parsing has become a standard means of integrating syntactic

knowledge into high level applications such as information retrieval,

machine translation, or question answering, for which efficiency and

robustness is of importance. In comparison with chunking and deep

parsing, partial parsing consists in finding structure that is richer

than chunks but less exhaustive than full syntactico-semantic parses:

partial parsing may involve constructing nested structures (unlike

simple chunking) without creating the full parse of a

sentence. However, partial parsing is not a single concept but rather

an area ranging from chunking to almost full parsing.  This workshop

will bring together researcher who work on partial parsing in its

different interpretations.

SCOPE:

=====

The main areas of interest of the workshop include (but are not

restricted to):

. linguistic richness of partial parsers for various applications:

  syntactic and semantic headedness, the degree of hierarchical 

  structure, semantic information (anaphora, disambiguation);

. development methodologies for partial parsers: manual,

  machine learning, hybrid;

. the usability of language resources for the development of

  partial parsers;

. multi-lingual development of partial parsers, etc.;

. experience and utilization of existing tools for building

  partial parsers for new languages;

. technical aspects of partial parsers:

  . robustness, scalability;

  . time and space complexity;

  . expressiveness of partial parsing formalisms (regular vs.

    context-free rules; unification; type hierarchies; etc.);

. applications of partial parsers: information extraction,

  question answering, machine translation, web text mining,

  acquisition of lexical information, etc.;

. evaluation methodologies for partial parsers: gold standards,

  application-specific, reusability of evaluation resources for

  different partial parsing tasks, etc.;

. ways of combining multiple partial parsers;

. comparsion (classification) of partial parsers.

SUBMISSIONS:

===========

Authors are invited to submit original research papers.  Papers

should indicate the state of completion of the reported results. In

particular, any overlap with previously published work should be

clearly mentioned. Submissions will be judged on correctness,

novelty, technical strength, clarity of presentation, and

significance/relevance to the workshop.

Submissions should be no longer than 8 pages and they should follow

the detailed guidelines at the LREC 2008 web page:

http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2008/-Submissions-.html. Submission is

via the START system, a link to the submission page can be found at

the workshop page.

The publication of selected papers in a special issue of a journal is

planned.
