2007 NooJ Conference
New Deadline: March 9, 2007

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming NooJ
conference, to be held in Barcelona, Spain, June 7 - 9 2007 at the
Universidad Autònoma de Barcelona.

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, extract semantic entities, perform
automatic Machine Translation, etc.

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.

NooJ is based on the Object Oriented "Component Programming" .NET
framework. Its most exclusive characteristics are:

-- NooJ's linguistic engine uses an annotation system synchronized to
   the text, that allows morphological, syntactic and semantic
   grammars to be applied to texts without modifying the original
   text; this allows linguists to describe various phenomena
   independantly, and apply the corresponding grammars in cascade;

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

NooJ includes processes texts and corpora in over 100+ file formats,
including all variants of UNICODE, ASCII, HTML, MS-OFFICE, etc. ; its
linguistic engine is multilingual ; it can import information from,
and export its annotations back to XML documents ; NooJ command-line
program and direct Object Oriented API make it much easier to
integrate any of its functionalities into other applications, etc.

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 learn more about NooJ:

As in previous INTEX/NooJ conferences, this meeting will be the
opportunity for 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.

To submit a paper, please send a one-page abstract before March 2,
2007 to lab.flexsem at The abstract, in French or in English,
should contain the title of the article, the name, institution,
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 end of april,
2007. The timeslot is 30 minutes for presentations, including 5
minutes for discussions.
