Meeting Description: 

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and treebanks. The 12th edition of TLT will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria on December 13-14, 2013, and will be hosted by the BulTreeBank Group.

TLT-12 website: http://bultreebank.org/TLT12/

This year, TLT will be accompanied by the third Workshop on Annotation of Corpora for Research in the Humanities (ACRH-3) that takes place on December 12, 2013. More information is available at: http://www.bultreebank.org/ACRH-3/.

TLT started its first edition in 2002 in Sozopol, Bulgaria. Now its 12th edition comes back to Bulgaria. For more than 10 years, TLT has served as a forum for high-quality works related to syntactically annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks; with a focus on all the aspects of treebanking (descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational) but also  going beyond treebanks, including other levels of annotation such as frame semantics, coreference, or events, to name only a few.

Workshop Motivation and Aims:

Treebanks have proven to be crucial resources for important NLP applications, such as MT and information extraction, as well as supporting resources for various NLP tasks, such as high-quality parsing and POS tagging. More recent trends in treebank-related research include:
- Annotating deep syntactic information 
- Conversion into deeper formats, often also adding information automatically 
- Multilingual and crosslingual treebanking
- Enriching treebanks with additional layers of linguistic annotation as well as world knowledge
- Dynamic treebanking involving a close connection between parsing and manual annotation
- Designing web services for diverse treebanks
- Mapping syntactic and semantic knowledge to Linked Open Data (LOD)

This series of workshops provides a forum for researchers and advanced students working in these areas.

Invited Speakers:
Stefanie Dipper (University of Bochum, Germany)
Antonio Branco (University of Lisbon, Portugal)
