Building Frame Semantics Resources for Scandinavian and Baltic Languages
                                  Tartu, Estonia, May 24, 2007
                       Workshop colocated with NODALIDA 2007

Data annotated with role-semantic information are becoming an ever  
more important resource for many semantic systems. They form the core  
element to develop large coverage, high-performance, and reusable  
semantic parsers, classifiers as well as applications that include  
lexicography, term and information extraction, semantic processing of  
the web, text-to-scene conversion systems, etc.

The workshop will be a review of on-going research and results in the  
area. The detailed program is available from this web page: http:// 
nlp.cs.lth.se/frame2007/program.shtml. The workshop also intends to  
be a forum for the research community to review current initiatives  
and methods as well as ideas to start the construction of role  
annotated corpora and possibly share it across a family of related  

It  will take place in the NODALIDA 2007 conference and will include  
a round table where participants will have the opportunity to discuss  
and try to propose an agenda to build frame semantic resources for  
the Scandinavian and Baltic languages. Active participation and/or  
commitments from the presenters or the public to set up this agenda  
will be welcome.

To participate in the workshop, you have to register to the main  
conference: http://math.ut.ee/nodalida2007/registration.html and to  
pay the registration fee. Registration to the workshop is free.
