QueryVis - Workshop on Innovative Corpus Query and Visualization Tools

at†[ http://www.lki.lt/LKI_EN/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=366&Itemid=147 ]Nodalida 2015, Vilnius (Lithuania), May, 11th, 2015

Recent years have seen an increased interest in and availability of many different kinds of corpora. These range from small, but carefully annotated treebanks to large parallel corpora and very large monolingual corpora for big data research. It remains a challenge to query the multilayer annotations of small corpora, to efficiently access large corpora as well as to visualize the query results.

When dealing with large corpora, query tools need to scale in terms of processing speed and reporting through statistical information and visualization options. This becomes evident, for example, when dealing with very large corpora (such as complete Wikipedia corpora) or multi-parallel corpora (such as Europarl or JRC Acquis). The goal of the workshop is to gather researchers who develop or evaluate new corpus query and visualization tools for linguistics, language technology or related disciplines.

Topics to be covered Querying corpora with multiple levels of annotation Querying parallel and multi-parallel corpora Visualization of annotation and alignment Visualization of query results over very large corpora Querying by example Querying multimodal corpora
