Subject: Second CFP: Intex/NooJ Workshop



9th INTEX/NooJ 2006 conference
Belgrade, Serbia
June 1 - June 3, 2006

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming ninth
INTEX/NooJ conference, 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
entities. 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.

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.

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 22, 2006 a one-page abstract to

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,

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.
