Meeting Description:

NooJ is a linguistic development environment that includes tools to
construct and maintain large-coverage lexical resources, morphological and
syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts in order
to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns, remove
ambiguities, tag words, extract semantic entities, perform automatic
Machine Translation, etc.

NooJ can build lemmatized concordances of large texts from Finite-State
Automata and Transducers, Context-Free grammars and Recursive Transition
Networks, and can accordingly perform transformation operations on texts in
cascade to recusively annotate texts, which gives it the power of a Turing

NooJ is based on the Object Oriented 'Component Programming' .NET
framework. Its most exclusive characteristics are:

NooJ's linguistic engine uses an annotation system synchronized to the text,
that allows morphological, syntactic and semantic grammars to be applied to
texts without modifying the original text; this allows linguists to
describe various phenomena independantly, and apply the corresponding
grammars in cascade.

Its integration of its inflection & derivation engine into its syntactic
engine allows linguists to program Harris-type transformations.

NooJ includes processes texts and corpora in over 100+ file formats,
including all variants of UNICODE, ASCII, HTML, MS-OFFICE, etc. ; its
linguistic engine is multilingual ; it can import information from, and
export its annotations back to XML documents ; NooJ command-line program
and direct Object Oriented API make it much easier to integrate any of its
functionalities into other applications, etc.

NooJ is used as a linguistic development platform, an information retrieval
system, a terminological extractor, as well as to teach linguistics and
computational linguistics.

To learn more about NooJ: www.nooj4nlp.net.

As in previous INTEX/NooJ conferences, this meeting will be the opportunity
for NooJ users, as well as other researchers interested in NLP, to meet and
to exchange their experience of development, research or teaching,
including computational morphology, lexicon and quantitative linguistics.
It will also be the occasion to present and discover the recent
developments of NooJ.

Meeting Description:

The 3rd Formal Semantics in Moscow workshop
April 28, 2007
Moscow, Russia 

The 3rd Formal Semantics in Moscow (FSIM) workshop will be held on April 28, 2007 at the Moscow State University. We invite abstracts for 20-minute presentations followed by 10-minute discussion on any topic in formal semantics and formal pragmatics. The main topic of this year's workshop is ''Anaphora and Beyond''. While submissions on anaphora are especially encouraged, submissions on any other topic are also welcome and will be given equal consideration. 

The annual FSiM workshop was originally started as a place for young researchers from the field of formal semantics and pragmatics to present their work in a lively and friendly setting. Therefore papers by young researchers are especially welcome.

Invited speakers: 
Uli Sauerland (ZAS)
Phillippe Schlenker (Institut Jean-Nicod, UCLA)

The deadline for submissions is January 25, 2007. Each author may be involved in at most two submissions and may be the sole author of at most one submission. Abstracts should be anonymous and should not exceed 2 pages. To submit an abstract, please send an e-mail to fsim3.submissions at gmail.com with your abstract attached as a pdf (preferably) or Microsoft Word file. In the body of the message please specify your name, affiliation, and the title of the paper. Notifications of acceptance will be sent in the late February.

There is no registration fee for the workshop. Crash space will be available upon request.

If you plan to attend FSIM, please be aware that obtaining a Russian visa may be a long, complicated and costly process. Guidelines for obtaining a tourist visa and information about visa fees may be found at http://fsim3.narod.ru/visa.html. We are now trying to find out if we will be able to send official invitations (needed to apply for a business visa) from the University to the participants. The information about (the possibility of) sending such invitations and getting a business visa is coming soon.
