Dear Irina, I answer quite late but, you may try the openFST, made by former creators of the AT&T's FSM. http://www.openfst.org It is open source and written in C++

CADS International Conference Corpus-assisted Discourse Studies:More than the sum of Discourse Analysis and computing?

University of Bologna,13-14 September 2012 Conference website: http://www3.lingue.unibo.it/blog/clb/?p=287

Featured speakers include: Michael Hoey (Liverpool), Paul Baker (Lancaster), Tony McEnery (Lancaster), Ramesh Krishnamurthy (Aston), Costas Gabrielatos (Lancaster), Alan Partington (Bologna)

The term corpus-assisted discourse studies (CADS) was coined ten years ago. Although such research dates back at least to Biber (1988) and Stubbs (1996), it was in those days still possible to lament: In comparison with the impressive strides corpus linguistics has made in the fields of lexicography, grammatical description, register studies etc, it has had relatively little to say in describing features of discourse, particularly of interaction, that is, the rhetorical aspects of texts.  This is clearly no longer the case. In these ten years CADS has come of age with major projects under its belt on, among others, the reporting of immigration, reporting the Iraq conflict, White House press relations and perceptions of the EU. Language topics studied include evaluation, discourse organisation, facework/politeness, metaphor, irony, stylistics, diachronic linguistics, and many more.  But new questions have arisen. Is CADS a coherent discipline? What are its methods? What are the overall objectives of CADS research(ers)? Has its focus altered over the years and is it likely to alter in the future? And, of course: is it more than just the sum of discourse analysis and computing? If so, what is its added value?  We invite speakers to share their own experiences of using corpus techniques to shed light on discourse and to debate these fundamental questions Talks will be 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions. Abstracts Please send abstracts to: catharina.solano2 at unibo.it Abstracts should be no more than 500 words (including references) and should specify five keywords. The number of conference places is limited to 40. Please supply abstract by e-mail without name with a separate document with name and affiliation. Address e-mail subject as ?CADS conference?. Abstracts will be sent for anonymous refereeing.

!! SHORT PAPER DEADLINE EXTENSION !!  SEMANTIC TRACK OF ACL 2012 SP-SEM-MRL Workshop ==================================================================================

Due to multiple requests, the semantic track short paper deadline of the ACL 2012 SP-SEM-MRL workshop is now extended to Saturday, April 28, 11:59pm PST (UTC/GMT -8 hours).

Authors who wish to take advantage of this extension for new submissions are requested to submit an abstract draft by Tuesday (April 23), to help us assign reviewers in this tight schedule. The abstract should be extended to a short paper format by April 28. All semantic processing track short paper submissions -- both previously submitted short and newly submitted abstracts -- may be updated and resubmitted online until the new extended deadline (April 28).

Note: Syntactic parsing  track short paper deadline has NOT changed (it is tomorrow, April 22). This extension is due to overlap with *SEM notification deadline and other events, and in order to encourage submission for the newly introduced track of semantic processing of MRL, so we can have a broader coverage for this emerging important topic. No additional extensions will be given under any circumstances.

1st Workshop on Automatic Text Summarization of the Future

*** Satellite workshop to SEPLN 2012 (Castellón, Spain)***


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Due to the great proliferation of online documents and information, it becomes necessary to develop automatic tools capable of filtering redundant and irrelevant information, thus presenting the most important one in an efficient and effective manner. This is the goal of Automatic Summarization, which aims at producing a concise document, keeping the essential information of a document or set of documents.

Research into Automatic Summarization began in the 50s with the purpose of summarizing scientific texts. However, the interest for this type of documents decreased, while the interest in news article summarization grew. Recently, new challenges have appeared in this research area. In the context of the Internet, not only is information being constantly updated, but there is also a lack of quality control of what is being published on the Web. Social networks, blogs, reviews, etc. are non-traditional texts of informal nature, and they therefore constitute a big challenge for the new generation of summaries.

High quality documentation such as technical/scientific articles and patents has not received in the past years all the attention that the field deserves. However, given the explosion of technical documentation available on the Web and in intranets, scientific and research and development institutions face a true scientific information deluge. Therefore, summarization should be a key instrument not only for reducing information content in this field but also for measuring information relevance in context, providing users with adequate answers in context.

Another challenge for automatic summarization is the generation of abstracts, where it is necessary to take into consideration

natural language generation techniques and be able to adapt them from one domain to another. In addition to these, efforts are needed to produce summaries in languages other than English and in multiple languages.

Therefore, the main goal of the 1st Workshop on Automatic Text Summarization of the Future is to bring together researchers working on Automatic Summarization, encouraging research into little explored areas such as new textual gentres as well as old, forgotten ones, or summarization in languages other than English (for instance, Spanish).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ IMPORTANT DATES: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Papers submission deadline: 15 June 2012 Notification of decisions to authors: 15 July 2012 Workshop date:  7th September 2012 Camera-ready: 20 July 2012

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SUBMISSIONS: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We will accept full paper contributions for the workshop. These papers should be written in English, with a maximum length of 8 pages, including references. The submission guidelines can be found on the following page: http://www.sepln.org/?page_id=358

Reviewing for the papers will be blind: reviewers will not be presented with the identity of paper authors. Authors should avoid writing anything that makes their identity obvious in the text. Submissions should be original, and in particular should not have been formally published prior to submission for the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in the Workshop proceedings, with ISBN. We are negotiating the edition of a journal special issue for the best submitted papers. More to be announced.

The submission site for the worshop will be announced with the second call for papers and will be available from the workshop Web site at http://www.taln.upf.edu/pages/sepln_ws_2012/.
