14th NooJ 2020 International Conference

Zagreb (Croatia)

4-6 June 2020


The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb (Croatia) and

the ELLIADD laboratory of the University of Franche-Comté (France),

are organizing the NooJ 2020 International Conference

in Zagreb, Croatia

on June 04-06, 2020




* give NooJ users and researchers in Linguistics and in Computational Linguistics the opportunity to meet and share their experience as developers, researchers and teachers;

* present the latest linguistic resources and NLP applications developed for/with NooJ, its latest functionalities, as well as its future developments;

* offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using NooJ;

* provide an occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ itself (v5).


NooJ is a free, open source linguistic development environment software as well as a corpus processor. NooJ provides linguists with tools to develop dictionaries, Regular Grammars, Context-Free Grammars, Context-Sensitive Grammars, and Unrestricted Grammars as well as their graphical equivalents to formalize each linguistic phenomenon. NooJ's multi-layer approach allows linguists to accumulate elementary descriptions across different linguistic levels.

NooJ is used in the Digital Humanities as it allows researchers in the Humanities and in Social sciences to apply sophisticated queries to large corpora in real time, in order to construct indices and concordances, annotate texts automatically and perform statistical analyses, etc. NooJ's linguistic engine has been inserted into a large number of NLP applications such as automatic semantic annotators, Named Entities Recognizers, Information extractors, Paraphrase Generation, Business Intelligence, Machine Translation, Web Semantics, etc.


* Linguistic resources: Typography, Spelling, Syllabification, Phonemic and Prosodic transcription, Morphology, Lexical Analysis, Local Syntax, Structural Syntax, Transformational Analysis, Paraphrase Generation, Semantic annotations, Semantic analysis, Description of rare and endangered languages.

* Digital Humanities: Corpus Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Literature Studies, Second-Language Teaching, Narrative content analysis, Corpus processing for the social sciences.

* NLP applications: Text Parsing, Text Generation, Text Annotation, Paraphrase Generation, Business Intelligence, Machine Translation, Sentiment Analysis.


* Professor Simon Krek

Artifical Intelligence Laboratory at "Jožef Stefan" Institute and Head of the Centre for language resources and technologies, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

Project Leader of H2020 European Lexicographic Infrastructure

* Professor Anita Peti-Stantić
