[Our apologies if you have received multiple copies of this announcement.]


Edited Volume "The People's Web Meets NLP: Collaboratively Constructed Language Resources"

Springer book series: "Theory and Applications of Natural Language Processing", E. Hovy, M. Johnson and G. Hirst (eds.)



The application of collective intelligence in the domain of language yielded collaboratively constructed language resources (CCLR) that can be used in a variety of ways.

The aim of this book is to capture the state-of-the-art in the emerging area of research on "Collaboratively constructed language resources." Thus, a point of reference on the topics of construction, mining, using and interconnecting collaboratively constructed language resources for natural language processing, knowledge discovery and other intelligent applications will be created.

Given the appropriateness of the topics, preliminary versions of contributions may be submitted in parallel to the 3rd workshop of "The People's Web meets NLP: Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources and their Applications to NLP."
