The 11th Linguistic Annotation Workshop (LAW XI) - Second call for Papers ==========================================================================


Held in conjunction with EACL 2017, Valencia, Spain, April 3, 2017

Sponsored by the ACL Special Interest Group on Annotation (SIGANN)

NOTE: the deadline was extended to January 21st.

NEW THIS YEAR: One of the outstanding papers appearing at the workshop will be recognized with a Best Paper Award.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION ========================

Linguistic annotation of natural language corpora is the backbone of supervised methods for statistical natural language processing. It also provides valuable data for evaluation of both rule-based and supervised systems and can help formalize the study of linguistic phenomena by both clarifying old tasks defining new ones.

The LAW provides a forum for presentation and discussion of innovative research on all aspects of linguistic annotation, including but not limited to the creation/evaluation of annotation schemes, methods for automatic and manual annotation, use and evaluation of annotation software and frameworks, representation of linguistic data and annotations, and evaluation of manual and automatically-produced annotations.

We also invite proposals for a shared task to be hosted at LAW 2018. These should be submitted as short papers (up to 4 pages). The program will include a panel discussion of potential shared tasks.

WORKSHOP TOPICS =======================

We welcome submissions of long and short papers, posters, and demonstrations relating to any aspect of linguistic annotation, including:

- Annotation procedures - Annotation evaluation - Annotation access and use - Annotation schemes, guidelines and standards - Annotation software and frameworks
