The NOOJ association
are glad to invite you to the
NooJ 2016 International Conference
České Budějovice (Czech Republic),
9-11 June 2016.
NooJ is both a corpus processing tool and a linguistic development environment that allows linguists
to formalize several levels of linguistic phenomena:
typography and spelling;
syllabification, phonemic and prosodic transcription;
lexicons of simple words, multiword units, and discontinuous expressions;
inflectional, derivational and agglutinative morphology;
local and structural syntax;
transformational syntax and paraphrase generation;
semantic analysis and machine translation.
NooJ provides linguists with regular grammars, context-free grammars, context-sensitive grammars
and unrestricted grammars as well as their graphical equivalent (finite-state, recursive and contextual
graphs) to enable the description of each phenomenon. NooJ’s multi-layer approach allows linguists
to accumulate elementary descriptions and describe phenomena that cross linguistic levels. As a
corpus processing tool, NooJ allows users to apply sophisticated linguistic queries to large corpora in
real time, in order to construct indices and concordances, annotate texts automatically and perform
semantic and statistical analyses, etc.
NooJ is open-source, freely available at www.nooj4nlp.net and over 20 linguistic modules can
already be freely downloaded, as well as a manual, video tutorials, references, etc.
The NooJ 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 an occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ itself (v5).
