Meeting Description:

E-MELD Digital Language Documentation Workshop on Morphosyntactic
Annotation and Terminology: Linguistic Ontologies

This is the 5th E-MELD (Electronic Metastructure for Endangered Languages
Data) workshop on digital language documentation,  sponsored by the
National Science Foundation. This year's workshop is entitled
''Morphosyntactic annotation and terminology:  the use of linguistic
ontologies.''  The conference will focus on linguistic ontologies as aids in
linguistic annotation and as tools for the fine-grained search and
retrieval of language documentation.

One goal of the workshop is to invite community participation in the
development  of GOLD, the General Ontology for Linguistic Description
developed by the E-MELD team at U. of Arizona. However we welcome presentations
on all aspects of morphosyntactic annotation and/or the use of ontologies in
linguistic description. For more information about GOLD, see

The E-MELD (Electronic Metastructure for Endangered Languages Data) Project
is a five-year project funded by the National Science Foundation with a
dual objective: to aid in the preservation of endangered languages data and
documentation and to aid in the development of the infrastructure necessary
for effective collaboration among electronic archives. As part of the
effort to promote consensus on best practices in digital language
documentation, E-MELD is hosting its fifth workshop from June 22-24, 2005
in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The  E-MELD workshop is being scheduled for
convenient travel for participants who are planning on going to the ACL
meeting in Ann Arbor.

A detailed call for papers is forthcoming.
