Call For Papers

The 10th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT10)


TLT10 - The 10th International Workshop on Treebanks
and Linguistic Theories

Heidelberg University, Germany
6-7 January 2012

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related
to treebanking, encompassing descriptive, theoretical, formal and
computational aspects of treebanks. The next edition will take place
in Heidelberg, Germany, on 6-7 January 2012, and is hosted by
the Institute for Computational Linguistics at Heidelberg University.

Submissions are invited for papers, posters, and demonstrations
which present research on treebanks and their intersection
with linguistics, natural language processing, and other related fields.

Motivation and Aims

Treebanks are language resources that provide annotations at various
levels of linguistic structure beyond the word level. They typically
provide syntactic constituent or dependency structures for sentences,
and often extend to functional and predicate-argument structure.
Treebanks have become crucially important for the development of
data-driven approaches to natural language processing, human language
technologies, grammar extraction and linguistic research in general. A
growing number of projects explore annotation beyond syntactic structure
(including, for instance, semantic, pragmatic and rhetorical annotation)
and beyond a single language (for instance, parallel treebanks).

Experiences in building treebanks have shown that there is a relation
between formal linguistic theory and the practice of annotation.
Since the practices of building treebanks have proved that aiming
at more detailed descriptions of the data becomes more and more
theory-dependent, the connections between treebank development and
linguistic theories need to be tightly connected in order to ensure
the necessary information flow between them. This series of workshops
aims to provide a forum for researchers and advanced students working
in these areas.

Workshop Topics

The workshop invites submissions presenting unpublished research
on relevant innovative work in treebanking, including the relations
and links between various aspects of morphological, syntactic, semantic,
and pragmatic annotation; furthermore, submissions describing work
on parallel treebanks and/or cross-language annotation schemas, on
the relation between linguistic theory and the practice of annotation,
and on applications of information in treebanks are encouraged as well.

We invite submission of long and short papers including, but not limited
to the following topics:

* design principles and annotation schemas for treebanks
* applications of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge and in NLP
* the role of linguistic theories in treebank development
* treebanks as a basis for linguistic research
* semantically and pragmatically annotated treebanks
* evaluation and quality control of treebanks
* tools for creation and management of treebanks
* treebanks of less-resourced languages
* theories, schemas, and applications for parallel treebanks
* standards for treebanks
