7th INTEX/NooJ Workshop
Tours, June 7-9 2004
Call for papers - Deadline: March 31, 2004

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming seventh INTEX/NooJ
workshop, to be held in Tours, June 7-9 2004.

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 can build lemmatized concordances of large texts from
Finite-State or Context-Free grammars, and can accordingly perform
transformation operations on texts in cascade, in order to annotate the
text, or to generate paraphrases; these features, when applied in cascade,
give INTEX the power of a Turing Machine. INTEX is used as a linguistic
platform, an information retrieval system, to teach second languages, as a
terminological extractor, as well as to teach computational linguistics to

NooJ, which uses a new technology, a new linguistic engine and a new
interface, is meant to replace INTEX. NooJ's architecture was presented in
the 5th INTEX Workshop (Marseille, June 2002) and its first alpha version
was demoed at the 6th INTEX Workshop (Sofia, May 27-29 2003).

As in the previous workshops (1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003), this
meeting will be the opportunity for INTEX and NooJ users, as well as other
researchers interested in NLP, to meet and to exchange their experience of
development, research or teaching. It will also be the occasion to present
the recent  developments of NooJ.

Please, send before March 31st 2004 a one-page abstract to Denis Maurel by
email. The abstract, in French or English, should contain the title of the
article, name, author affiliations, surface mail and electronic address of
each author.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Authors will be
notified whether their papers are accepted or rejected by April 15th 2004.
The timeslot is 30 minutes for presentations (including 5 minutes for

After the conference, authors will be invited to send a definitive version
of their papers for publishing. We are planning to combine a subset of the
proceedings of the 6th and the 7th INTEX Workshops in a published volume.
