Subject: 15th Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories

 
Full Title: The 15th Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 15) 
Short Title: TLT15 

Date: 20-Jan-2017 - 21-Jan-2017
Location: Bloomington, IN, USA 
Contact Person: Markus Dickinson
Meeting Email: md7 at indiana.edu
Web Site: http://cl.indiana.edu/tlt15/ 

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Linguistic Theories; Syntax; Text/Corpus Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 09-Oct-2016 

Meeting Description:

TLT is a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related to
syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks.

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics
and treebanks. The 15th edition of TLT will, for the first time, take place in
the United States, at Indiana University, Bloomington, on 20-21 January 2017.

For 15 years now, TLT has served as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality
work 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 Topics:

- Design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks
- The use of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge
- The use of treebanks for NLP applications
- The role of linguistic theories in treebank development
- Treebanks as a knowledge source for linguistic research
- Treebank annotation beyond syntax: semantics, pragmatics and discourse
- Evaluation and quality control of treebanks
- Tools for creation and management of treebanks
- Treebanks for lesser-resourced languages
- Theories, schemas and applications for parallel treebanks
- Standards for treebanks
- (Semi-)automatic methods for creating large treebanks
- Mapping of treebanks to Linked Open Data resources
- Domain-specific treebanks
- The future of treebanks and treebanking
- Multi-word expressions in treebanks
- Language-universal annotation for treebanks and its relation to
language-specific annotation

Invited Speakers:

- Marie-Catherine de Marneffe (Ohio State University, USA)
- James Pustejovsky (Brandeis University, USA)

There will be a pre-TLT co-located workshop on Corpora and the Digital
Humanities, on 19 January!  See the website for more details.
