Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2007 

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 workshop program is based on discussions in small working groups. Participants will not submit abstracts or make individual oral presentations of their own projects. Instead of submitting abstracts of presentations, participants are requested to submit one-page issue statements, which will inform the working group foci for the first conference day. In these issue statements, we urge applicants to present one issue or idea relevant to the technological support of linguistic scholarship. 

For example, the position paper might address one or more of the following questions:

1. What are the greatest barriers to interoperability?
2. What could this workshop do to best promote interoperability?
3. What sets of tools or facilities have you used that are currently 
   interoperable? What are the benefits and drawbacks of these
   and/or similar tool suites?
4. If you have been involved in tool development, what are the 
   primary challenges involved    in designing interoperable tools?
5. If your work involves a range of non-interoperable tools, what 
   solutions or work-arounds have you found?
6. Do you agree that interoperable tools will produce interoperable 
   documentation, and this in turn will facilitate the development of 
   Internet services and digital archives. Or does this claim require
   qualification or explication? 

Each issue paper must be accompanied by a short (half page or less) biography.

Submissions address: tilr at linguistlist.org
Deadline: Issue statements and biographies are due on 15 February 2007.
Issue statements: one page.
