First call for papers
9th INTEX/NooJ Workshop
Deadline: March 15, 2006 


We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming ninth
INTEX/NooJ workshop, to be held in Belgrade, Serbia, June 1 - June 3,
2006 at the Faculty of Mathematics
<>, University of Belgrade.

INTEX/NooJ is a linguistic development environment that includes tools
to construct and maintain large-coverage lexical resources,
morphological and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are
applied to texts in order to locate morphological, lexical and
syntactic patterns, remove ambiguities, tag words and extract semantic

INTEX/NooJ can build lemmatized concordances of large texts from
Finite-State Automata and Transducers, Context-Free grammars and
Recursive Transition Networks, and can accordingly perform
transformation operations on texts in cascade to recusively annotate
texts, which gives it the power of a Turing machine. INTEX/NooJ is
used as a linguistic development platform, an information retrieval
system, a terminological extractor, as well as to teach linguistics
and computational linguistics to students.

NooJ is the latest version of INTEX, now completely redesigned and
built in the Object Oriented "Component Programming" .NET
framework. NooJ's main improvements over INTEX are:

-- its new dictionary architecture: all previous DELA-type
dictionaries and lexicon-grammars are now unified,

-- NooJ linguistic parsers are non destructive: NooJ uses an
annotation system synchronized to the text, that allows transducers to
be applied to texts in cascade without ever destroying the original

-- its integration of its inflection & derivation engine into its
syntactic engine that allows linguists to program Harris-type

-- its addition of a number of tools inspired by Software Engineering
techniques, that make the development of large linguistic resources
more robust over time.

Finally, NooJ includes a number of technical improvements: NooJ
processes texts and corpora in over 100+ file formats, including all
variants of UNICODE, ASCII, HTML, MS-WORD, etc. ; NooJ's linguistic
engine is multilingual ; NooJ can import information from, and export
its annotations back to XML documents ; NooJ command-line programs and
direct Object Oriented API makes it much easier to integrate any of
its functionalities into other applications, etc. To learn more about

As in the previous workshops, 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, including computational morphology, lexicon and quantitative
linguistics. It will also be the occasion to present and discover the
recent developments of NooJ.

Send before March 15, 2006 a one-page abstract to
nooj at The abstract, in French or in English, should
contain the title of the article, the name, affiliation, surface mail
and electronic address of each co-author.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Authors will be
notified whether their papers are accepted or rejected by April 8th,
2006.  The timeslot is 30 minutes for presentations (including 5
minutes for discussions). After the conference, authors selected for
publishing by the program committee will be invited to send a
definitive version of their papers for publication.
