Call for papers, submission deadline 15.2.2013

     DFKI and Université de Franche-Comté organize the:


     NooJ 2013

       Conference in Saarbrücken,

       June 3-5 2013.


NooJ is a linguistic development environment that allows linguists to
formalize several levels of linguistic phenomena :

  * typography and spelling ;
  * lexicons of simple words, multiword units and discontinuous
    expressions ;
  * inflectional, derivational and productive morphology ;
  * local and structural syntax ;
  * transformational and semantic analysis and generation.

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/development/debugging tools designed to
be as computationally efficient as possible, from Finite-State to Turing
machines. This approach distinguishes NooJ from other computational
linguistic frameworks which provide a unique formalism.

As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows researchers in various social
sciences to extract information from corpora by applying sophisticated
queries based on concepts rather than word forms and build indices and
concordances, add semantic annotations, perform statistical analyses on
concepts, etc.

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).
