Call for Papers

         Workshop on Computational Modeling of Lexical Acquisition
                            - The Split Meeting -


Time: 25.-28. July 2005
Location: University of Split, Croatia

The Croatian Language Technologies Society (CLTS) and the University of 
are pleased to sponsor the inaugural meeting of the Workshop on 
Linguistics held in Split, Croatia, focusing on the topic of 
Modeling of Lexical Acquisition". We will build on the topics in
formal-theoretical and computational linguistics, in particular on 
issues in
learnability, complexity and modeling of lexical knowledge.

This workshop is especially intended to provide a forum for the 
of unique and original research on computational linguistic topics in 
domain of learning of lexical properties, i.e. lexical acquisition, 
but not limited to the following topics:

a. machine learning methods for lexical acquisition
- speech and language segmentation into lexical units
- induction and learning of phonological and morphological structure
- inducing formal grammars from discovered structural properties
- learning lexical semantic properties and lexical disambiguation
- computational models of psycholinguistic aspects of lexical 

b. corpora, evaluation and applications
- induction of part-of-speech information for tagging and automatic 
   (via e.g. clustering and classification, using Vector Space Modeling 
or other
- corpora for learning phonological and morphological regularities and a
   common gold standard
- applications using machine learning and automatic lexical acquisition
   (e.g. tagger, ontologies, textmining)
- evaluation strategies and methods for learning approaches

This workshop will expand into a fixed annual event organized by the 
Language Technologies Society (CLTS) to be hosted, in turn, and shared 
all interested and committed Croatian Universities.

Time: 25.-28. July 2005
Location: University of Split, Croatia

Abstract Deadline: 15th of March, 2005
Acceptance Information: 1st of April, 2005

Draft paper submission deadline: 1st of June 2005
