                         2nd CALL FOR PAPERS

                        EACL 2006 Workshop on
        Multi-dimensional Markup in Natural Language Processing:
               5th Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2006)

                http://ilps.science.uva.nl/nlpxml2006/

                     April 4, 2006, Trento, Italy

*************** Submission deadline: January 6, 2006 ***********

The EACL 2006 Workshop on Multi-dimensional Markup in
Natural Language Processing will be hosted in conjunction
with the 11th Conference of the European Chapter of the
Association for Computational Linguistics, which will take
place April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, italy.

This workshop is also the fifth in the NLPXML series, following
workshops at NLPRS 2001 in Tokyo, COLING 2002 in Taipei,
EACL 2003 in Budapest, and ACL 2004 in Barcelona.

* TOPICS

The widespread adoption of XML within the NLP community as the
main standard for both data and meta-data representation has led
to research in a number of issues relating to XML and NLP.  One
particularly interesting challenge arises from the difficulty in
combining annotations resulting from disparate NLP systems in a
single hierarchical structure.  For downstream applications that
rely on a range of linguistic annotations, problems such as crossing
boundaries and overlapping elements from different sources make it
difficult to query data with multiple dimensions of annotation.

As in previous NLPXML workshops, we invite papers addressing the full
range of topics relating NLP and XML.  The special focus of this
workshop is multi-dimensional markup.  Our goal is to bring together
researchers from several different fields --- natural language
processing, corpus linguistics, markup languages, and information
retrieval --- to discuss theoretical and practical issues related to
the integration of different layers of text annotation.  Thus, we
particularly welcome papers that discuss the problems associated with
such integration as well as those that provide solutions, whether
proposed or implemented, within any of the four fields.  We are
especially interested in the effects that chosen solutions have on the
type of queries that can be made, both from a theoretical and a
practical point of view.

* SUBMISSIONS

Authors are invited to submit full papers on original, unpublished
work in the topic area of this workshop.  Submissions should be
formatted using the EACL 2006 stylefiles with overt author and
affiliation information and not exceeding 8 pages. The EACL 2006
stylefiles are available at
http://eacl06.itc.it/submission/submission.htm

Please send your PDF file no later than January 6, 2006, to
ahn (at) science.uva.nl

Each submission will be reviewed at least by two members of the
programme committee.  Accepted papers will be published in the
workshop proceedings.

Dual submissions to the main EACL 2006 conference and this workshop
are allowed; if you submit to the main session, do indicate this when
you submit to the workshop.  If your paper is accepted for the main
session, you should withdraw your paper from the workshop upon
notification by the main session.
