========================================================================== TheoreticAl and Computational MOrphology: New Trends and Synergies (TACMO)
Workshop to be held in conjunction with the International Congress of Linguists, July 2013, Geneva (CH) www.cil19.org
Nowadays, theoretical morphology witnesses a revival due to the emergence of new formalization frameworks, both for inflectional and lexical morphology: canonical morphology, approaches based on analogy, rule-based approaches, to name just a few. All these approaches can potentially shed new light on computational processing of morphology, either for parsing or generation. In parallel, new computational techniques (such as (un-)supervised morphological acquisition) and formal frameworks bring a fresh look on morphological phenomena. Both domains tackle more or less implicitly the organization of the lexicon in general. The TACMO workshop aims at gathering these two facets of morphology - computational and theoretical formalization - in order to foster interactions and to highlight how both approaches benefit from each other.
We mainly expect (but not exclusively) communication proposals on the following topics: - Inflectional, derivational and compositional morphology. - Problems raised by non affixal processes (templatic morphology, reduction and truncation, reduplication, blending and conversion) - Semantics-morphology interface and its role in the organization of the lexicon. - Syntax-morphology interface and its role in NLP systems. - Conception of lexical resources enriched with morphological information.
Talk proposals should especially focus on the innovative aspects of the formalization and/or its benefits for automation. For computational approaches, the focus should be put on the new perspective that the implementation can bring on morphological descriptions.
SUBMISSIONS: Authors should submit an anonymous extended abstract (3-4 pages) in English, containing the title of the talk, keywords and references. Abstract should be written in usual font (typically Times 12pt) and submitted in pdf format. All abstracts will be blind reviewed by two members of the Scientific Committee. A book of abstract will be distributed at the workshop.
IMPORTANT DATE: - July 15 2012: Deadline for abstract submission - October 2012: Notification to Authors - July 22-27 2013: Workshop
ORGANIZERS: - Bruno Cartoni (University of Geneva) - Delphine Bernhard (University of Strasbourg) - Delphine Tribout (University of Paris VII)
