Second Call for Papers

The 12th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT12)

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and treebanks. The 12th edition of TLT will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria on December 13-14, 2013, and will be hosted by the BulTreeBank Group.

TLT-12 website: http://bultreebank.org/TLT12/

This year, TLT will be accompanied by the third Workshop on Annotation of Corpora for Research in the Humanities (ACRH-3) that takes place on December 12, 2013. More information is available at: http://www.bultreebank.org/ACRH-3/

TLT started its first edition in 2002 in Sozopol, Bulgaria. Now its 12th edition comes back to Bulgaria again! For more than 10 years now TLT has served as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related to syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks; with a focus on all the aspects of treebanking -- descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational -- but also going beyond treebanks, including other levels of annotation such as frame semantics, coreference, or events, to name only a few.

Submissions are invited for papers, posters, and demonstrations which present research on treebanks and their intersection with linguistics, natural language processing, and other related fields.

Workshop Motivation and Aims

Treebanks have proved to be crucial resources for very important NLP applications, such as MT and information extraction, as well as supporting resources for various NLP tasks, such as high-quality parsing and POS tagging. More recent trends in treebank related research includes, but is not restricted to the following areas:

* Annotating deep syntactic information, * converting into deeper formats, often also adding information automatically, * multilingual and crosslingual treebanking * enriching treebanks with additional layers of linguistic annotation as well as world knowledge * dynamic treebanking involving a close connection between parsing and manual annotation, * designing web services for diverse treebanks * mapping syntactic and semantic knowledge to Linked Open Data information (LOD)

This series of workshops aims to provide a forum for researchers and advanced students working in these areas.

Workshop Topics

The workshop invites submissions that discuss relevant innovative work in treebanking, including the relations and links between various aspects of morphological, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic annotation; furthermore, submissions describing work on parallel treebanks and/or cross-language annotation schemas, on the relation between linguistic theory and the practice of annotation, and on applications of information in treebanks are encouraged as well.

The areas of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

* design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks * linguistic theory and the practice of annotation * applications of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge and in NLP * the role of linguistic theories in treebank development * treebanks as a basis for linguistic research * annotated beyond treebanks * evaluation and quality control of treebanks * tools for creation and management of treebanks * treebanks of less-resourced languages * theories, schemas, and applications for parallel treebanks * standards for treebanks * creation of large treebanks * mapping of treebanks to Linked Open Data resources * using Treebanks in Analysis and Generation tasks * domain-specific treebanks * the future of treebanks and treebanking

Invited Speakers

* Stefanie Dipper (University of Bochum, Germany) * Antonio Branco (University of Lisbon, Portugal)
