Methods in Natural Language Processing (HLT/EMNLP; see 

IWPT'05  continues  the  tradition  of  biennial  workshops  on  parsing
technology organized by SIGPARSE,  the Special Interest Group on Parsing
of the  Association for Computational Linguistics  (ACL).  This workshop
series was initiated  by Masaru Tomita in 1989.   The first workshop, in

2001; and Nancy (France) in 2003.
