             Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-04)

                  A workshop to be held at COLING-04
                  the 20th International Conference

Large linguistically interpreted corpora play an increasingly
important role for machine learning, evaluation,
psycholinguistics as well as theoretical linguistics. Many
research groups are engaged in the creation of
corpus resources annotated with
morphological, syntactic, semantic and discourse
information for a variety of languages. We aim to bring
together these activities in order to identify and disseminate
best practice in the development and utilization of
linguistically interpreted corpora.

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate
research results with resprect to the annotation,
conversion and exploitation of corpora taking into account
different applications and theoretical investigations in
the field of language technology and research. We invite
submissions of papers constituting substantial, original,
and unpublished work on all aspects of linguistically
interpreted corpora, including, but not limited to:
- creation of practical annotation schemes
- efficient annotation techniques
- automation of corpus annotation
- tools supporting corpus conversions
- validation including consistency checking of corpora
- browsing corpora and searching for instances of linguistic phenomena
- relating actual annotation to contemporary linguistic theory
- interpretation of quantitative results
- use of annotated corpora in the automated induction of linguistic 

Rob Malouf, Assistant Professor at the Department of Linguistics and 
Oriental Languages at San Diego State University, will be our keynote
