*Important Dates*

• Abstract submission: Mars 29, 2009 (FINAL deadline extension)

• Notification of Acceptance : May 04, 2009

• Conference : 08-10 June, 2009


NOOJ 2009 will be organized by the research laboratory MIR at CL
(Multimedia InfoRmation & Advanced Computing Laboratory), Sfax
University in collaboration with the "Semio-linguistic, the Didactic
and computer science Laboratory", Franche-Comté University and the
"Maison des Sciences de l'Homme Claude Ledoux".

NOOJ 2009 will be held in Tozeur city-Tunisia, 450 Km in the
south-west of Tunis .

The conference intends to:

  - give NooJ users and researchers in Linguistics and in
    Computational Linguistics the opportunity to meet and share their
    experience as developers, researchers and teachers;

  - present to NooJ users the latest linguistic resources and NLP
    applications developed for/with NooJ, its latest functionalities,
    as well as its future developments;

  - offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic
    and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP
    applications using NooJ.

  - Present NooJ's Arabic resources to all researchers in Arabic
    studies : linguists, computational linguists as well as all
    researchers who work with/on Arabic corpora.

NooJ is a freeware, linguistic engineering development environment
used to formalize various types of textual phenomena (orthography,
lexical and productive morphology, local, structural and
transformational syntax) using a large gamut of computational devices
(from Finite-State Automata to Augmented Recursive Transition
Networks). NooJ includes tools to construct, test, debug, maintain and
accumulate large sets of linguistic resources, and can apply them to
large texts.

Modules for a dozen languages are already available for free download:
Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, English, French,
Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. A dozen of
other modules are under construction.

 *Topics of Interest*

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
•         Syntactic analysis
•         Lexical analysis
•         Linguistic resources
•         Dictionary


We invite the submission of papers until the March 15, 2009 either in
English or in French. The abstracts should contain the title of the
article, the name, the institution, the surface mail and the
electronic address of each co-author. The abstracts should not exceed
