================== About the Workshop ==================

The hybrid approach term covers a large set of situations in which different approaches are combined in order to better process textual data and to attempt a better achievement of the dedicated task. Among the hybridizations the possible combinations are unlimited. The most frequent combination, as stressed during The Balancing Act in 1994, addressed machine learning and rule-based systems. Beyond this, the hybridization can be augmented with distributionnal approaches, syntactic and morphological analyses, semantic distances and similarities, graph theory models, cooccurrences of linguistic units (e.g., word and their dependencies, word senses and pos-tag, NEs and semantic roles,...), knowledge-based approaches (terminologies and ontologies), etc. As a matter of fact, the hybridization implies to define a strategy to efficiently combine several approaches: cooperation between approaches, filtering, voting or ranking of the multiple system outputs, etc. Indeed, the combination of these different methods and approaches appears to provide more complete and performant results. The reason is that each method is sensitive and efficient with given data and within given contexts. Hence, their combination may improve both precision and recall. The coverage is indeed improved, while the exploitation of different methods may also lead to the improvement of the precision since their use within filtering, voting etc. modes becomes possible. In this workshop, we favour the extended meaning of the hybridization of methods, applied to various application areas, such as:

automatic creation of linguistic resources

POS tagging

building and structuring of terminologies

information retrieval and filtering

information extraction

linguistic annotation

semantic labeling

sign language recognition and transcription

oral data transcription

filtering and validation of lexical resources

text summarization

question/answering system

natural language generation
