6th INTEX Workshop
Sofia, 29-30 May 2003

Call for papers - Deadline: March 15th


Bulgarian Association for Computational Linguistics - BACL

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming sixth INTEX
workshop, to be held in Sofia from 28-30 May 2003.

INTEX is a linguistic development environment that includes
large-coverage dictionaries and grammars, and parses texts of several
million words in real time. INTEX includes tools to create and
maintain large-coverage lexical resources, as well as morphological
and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts
in order to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns,
remove ambiguities, and tag simple and compound words.  INTEX is used
by several research centers to rapidly construct extractors to
identify semantic units in large texts, such as Proper names of
persons, locations, technical expressions of finance, etc. INTEX can
build lemmatized concordances and indices of large texts with respect
to all types of Finite State patterns.

One interesting characteristic of INTEX is that the system is open:
users can add their own resources use the INTEX programs to build new
applications, and add their own programs to modify INTEX. INTEX is now
used in over 200 research centers as a linguistic platform, an
information retrieval system, to teach second languages, as a
terminological extractor, as well as to teach computational
linguistics to students.

As in the previous workshops, (1996, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002), this
meeting will be the opportunity for INTEX users, as well as other
researchers interested in this technology, to meet and to exchange
their experience of development, research or teaching. It will also be
the occasion to present the recent developments of INTEX and NOOJ.

Please, send before March 15th 2003 a one-page abstract to: Svetla
Koeva, Stoyan Mihov or Max Silberztein,

if possible by email. The abstract, in French or English, should
contain the title of the article, name, author affiliations, surface
