EACL 2006 Workshop on

Learning Structured Information in Natural Language Applications

April 3, 2006

The EACL 2006 Workshop on Learning structured information in natural
language applications will be hosted in conjunction with the 11th
Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for
Computational Linguistics that will take place April 3-7, 2006, in
Trento, italy.


Language processing largely deals with multidimensional and highly
structured forms of information. Indeed, from the morphological up to
the deep syntactic and semantic levels, linguistic information is
often described by structured data, making the learning of the
associated linguistic tasks more complex. Recently, approaches that
attempt to alleviate such modeling complexity by directly encoding
structured data have been developed. Among other, kernel methods and
conditional random fields provide interesting properties. The
promising aspects of such approaches open new research directions:

(a) the study of their impact on the modeling of diverse natural
language structures, (b) their comparative assessment with traditional
attribute-value models and (c) the investigation of techniques which
aim to improve their efficiency.

The main goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from
different communities such as machine learning, computational
linguistics, information retrieval and data mining to promote the
discussion and development of new ideas and methods for the effective
exploitation of "structured data" for natural language learning and

Each submission will be reviewed at least by two members of the programme 
committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.

Dual submissions to the main EACL 2006 conference and this workshop
are allowed; if you submit to the main session, do indicate this when
you submit to the workshop.  If your paper is accepted for the main
session, you should withdraw your paper from the workshop upon
notification by the main session.
