                         2nd CALL FOR DEMOS

                        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 31, 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 part of this workshop, we solicit demo presentations of tools and
applications that provide access to multiple layers of linguistic
annotation, as well as multi-dimensional XML processing systems that
may be applicable to research in computational linguistics.  We also
welcome, more generally, presentations of natural language processing
systems that have successfully met the challenge of integrating
multiple levels of XML markup as part of their data representation.

* DEMO SUBMISSIONS

Demo presenters must submit a description of their demo (up to 4
pages, including screenshots).  Submissions should be formatted
using the EACL 2006 stylefiles with overt author and affiliation
information.  The EACL 2006 stylefiles are available at
http://eacl06.itc.it/submission/submission.htm

Please send your PDF file no later than January 31, 2006, to
ahn (at) science.uva.nl

The workshop organizers are unable to provide computing equipment for
demonstration purposes; if your demo submission is accepted, you are
expected to bring your own laptop on which the demonstration can be
shown.  In your email message, please include details on the facilities
you need for your demonstration (internet connection, beamer, etc.)

Each demo submission will be reviewed by at least two members of
the programme committee.  Accepted demo descriptions will be
published in the workshop proceedings.  As the schedule is extremely
tight, there will only be a very short time available for revision of
accepted descriptions; please try to make your submissions
publication-ready.

(Please note that the deadline for paper submissions has passed;
this call concerns demo descriptions only.)

* REGISTRATION

Information on registration and registration fees will be provided at
the conference web page.

* IMPORTANT DATES

January 31, 2006  - Deadline for demo descriptions
February 7, 2006  - Notification of acceptance
February 10, 2006 - Camera-ready descriptions due
April 4, 2006     - Workshop

As the schedule is extremely tight, deadline extensions are NOT
possible.
