Call for papers for NooJ 2011 Conference


Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb
(FFZG), Croatian Language Technologies Society (HDJT) the Laboratoire
de Sémio-Linguistique et Didactique (LASELDI) of the University
Franche-Comté and the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme et de
l'Environnement Ledoux organize the 2011 NooJ Conference in Dubrovnik,
Croatia from 13-15 June, 2011.

NooJ is both a corpus processing tool and a linguistic development
environment: it allows linguists to formalize several levels of
linguistic phenomena: orthography and spelling; lexicons of simple
words; multiword units and frozen expressions; inflectional,
derivational and productive morphology; local, structural syntax and
transformational syntax. For each of these levels NooJ provides
linguists with one or more formal tools specifically designed to
facilitate the description of each phenomenon, as well as parsing
tools designed to be as computationally efficient as possible. This
approach distinguishes NooJ from most computational linguistic tools,
which provide a single formalism that could describe every linguistic
phenomena. As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows users to apply
sophisticated linguistic queries to large corpora in order to build
indices and concordances, annotate texts automatically, perform
statistical analyses, etc.

NooJ is freely available and linguistic modules can already be freely
downloaded for Acadian, Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese,
Croatian, French, English, German, Hebrew, Greek, Hungarian, Italian,
Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish. A dozen other modules are
under construction.

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.

* provide the occasion to present and discover the recent developments
  of NooJ itself (v3.0).

Topics of interest:

* Semantic analysis

* Syntactic analysis

* Lexical analysis

* Linguistic resources

* Dictionaries


We invite the submission of papers until 17 January 2011 in
English. The abstracts should contain the title, name, institution and
email of the author(s). Abstracts should not exceed one page (between
400 and 600 words) and should be submitted through the Conference web

the scientific committee and authors will be given notice of
acceptance of their papers no later than 15 March 2011.
