The aim of this e-mail is to announce a new scientific network devoted
to the role of Multi-Word Expressions (MWEs) in Parsing: the COST Action
IC1207 "PARSEME: PARSing and Multi-word Expressions. Towards linguistic
precision and computational efficiency in natural language processing",  This WWW page
contains information about the working groups (see "Memorandum of
Understanding") and about countries currently participating in the
Action (see "Parties").  If you happen to work in one of the countries
listed there and would like to take part in PARSEME, please get in touch

decide which WG(s) to join.  There will be slots for several
presentations per WG and time for ensuing discussions. The current
Working Groups are:
WG1: Lexicon/Grammar Interface

WG3: Hybrid Parsing of MWEs
WG4: Annotating MWEs in Treebanks

This is an invitation for the submission of presentation proposals.
We envisage the following types of presentations:

• state of the art overviews
• outlines of research challenges
• descriptions of recent research results

Submission format: PDF, up to 2 pages (12pt font, 1in margins).  Please
include your name and affiliation, the title of the presentation, the
Working Group concerned, and indicate one of the three presentation
categories listed above.
You may refer to results published previously in another venue or
journal. Submissions are not anonymous and are open to all researchers
and language technology experts from the Action's member countries

Please send your submissions via e-mail to

The final acceptance decisions
will be made by the PARSEME Steering Committee.
