Meeting Description: 

This workshop, to be held July 13-15 at Stanford University in conjunction with the 2007 LSA Summer Institute, will bring linguists, language engineers, and archivists together to collaborate in the development of digital tools and services for linguistics. This meeting, which will focus on interoperability, will capitalize on the momentum of two workshops held in conjunction with the 2006 LSA Summer Meeting:  the Digital Tools Summit in Linguistics (DTSL), and the E-MELD (Electronic Metastructure for Endangered Languages Data) workshop on "Tools and Standards: the State of the Art." 

The 2007 workshop aims to continue the development of software specifications and criteria for interoperability of linguistics tools. Interoperability entails that the output of one tool should readily constitute the input to another tool, so that scholars can easily share data and reuse it for different research purposes. The workshop is intended to encourage developers to coordinate outputs of existing tools and to plan new tools that are extensible, modular, and renewable. If tools developed by one project can be readily adapted for other similar projects, this will not only conserve development time and effort, but also constitute major progress towards the ultimate goal of creating sustainable and accessible digital resources.  

We invite submissions from linguists, archivists, community members, and computer scientists.  Participation will represent the perspectives of the user and the service provider, as well as the tool developer.
