    As a tangent to the sustainability thread and a bit of promo for an online

    5th International Workshop on Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-04)

    A workshop to be held at COLING-04 the 20th International Conference on Computational Linguistics

    Geneva, 29 August 2004

    Large linguistically interpreted corpora play an increasingly important role for machine learning, evaluation, psycholinguistics as well as theoretical linguistics. Many research groups are engaged in the creation of corpus resources annotated with morphological, syntactic, semantic and discourse information for a variety of languages. We aim to bring together these activities in order to identify and disseminate best practice in the development and utilization of linguistically interpreted corpora.

    The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate research results with resprect to the annotation, conversion and exploitation of corpora taking into account different applications and theoretical investigations in the field of language technology and research. We invite submissions of papers constituting substantial, original, and unpublished work on all aspects of linguistically interpreted corpora, including, but not limited to: - creation of practical annotation schemes - efficient annotation techniques - automation of corpus annotation - tools supporting corpus conversions - validation including consistency checking of corpora - browsing corpora and searching for instances of linguistic phenomena - relating actual annotation to contemporary linguistic theory - interpretation of quantitative results - use of annotated corpora in the automated induction of linguistic knowledge

    Rob Malouf, Assistant Professor at the Department of Linguistics and Oriental Languages at San Diego State University, will be our keynote speaker.
