        Creation and Exploitation of Annotated Language Resources


                        July 30 - August 1, 2001
                             Iasi, Romania


             Dan Cristea, University "A.I. Cuza", Iasi,  Romania
             Nancy Ide, Vassar College, USA

             Massimo Poesio, University of Edinburgh

            Corpora annotated for a variety of linguistic features are
            becoming increasingly available. Part of speech annotated
            corpora are commonplace; treebanks in a variety of
            languages are available or under development; and corpora
            annotated for various features of discourse, including
            co-reference and discourse structure, are also available
            (e.g., the MUC corpora). In addition, large speech corpora
            annotated with phonetic transcriptions and prosodic
            analysis and various multi-lingual aligned corpora are
            available from centers such as the Linguistic Data
            Consortium and the European Language Resources

            This workshop will address issues of using corpora
            annotated for multiple layers (e.g., syntax and discourse,
            prosody and part of speech, etc.) or combining multiple
            layers of annotation in natural language analysis. We
            invite submissions on the following topics:

                o Research that exploits information on different
                  linguistic levels;

                o Consideration and demonstration of the ways in which
                  information from different layers can be used in
                  automatic language processing;

                o Compatibility of corpora annotated for different
                  linguistic layers, including means to harmonize
                  different annotation types and levels;

                o Tools for exploiting different levels of annotation.

            The workshop will be held in conjunction with the EUROLAN
            2001 Summer School on Creation and Exploitation of
            Annotated Language Resources, to be held in Iasi, Romania
            from 30 July - August 11, 2001. Because EUROLAN 2001 is
            concerned with a wide variety of types of linguistic
            annotation, the workshop will serve to complement the
            content of lectures and tutorials that are part of the
            School's main program. Registration for the workshop is
            included in the Summer School registration fee.


            Papers should report on original work not previously
            presented elsewhere. The workshop is intended to provide a
            forum for discussion and a means to receive feedback for
            future development; therefore, papers describing both
            completed work and work-in-progress are acceptable.

            Submissions of 3500-5000 words should be sent via email to
            ide at with the subject line "EUROLAN 2001
            WORKSHOP SUBMISSION". Submissions in Postscript, PDF, or
            plain ASCII text formats are acceptable.
