              ******* EUROLAN 2001 WORKSHOP *******


                   July 30 - August 1, 2001
                        Iasi, Romania

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 over three consecutive evenings in
conjunction with the EUROLAN 2001 Summer School on Creation and
Exploitation of Annotated Language Resources, in Iasi,
Romania. 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.
