Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing - FSMNLP 2007

Sixth International Workshop
University of Potsdam, Germany
14 - 16 September 2007


Papers due: 3 June 2007
The aim of the FSMNLP 2007 is to bring together members of the academic,
research, and industrial community working on finite-state based models in
language technology, computational linguistics, linguistics and cognitive
science or on related theory or methods in fields such as computer science
and mathematics. The workshop will be a forum for researchers working

    * on NLP applications,
    * on the theoretical and implementation aspects, or
    * on their combination.

We invite novel high-quality papers that are related to the themes including
but not limited to:

1. NLP applications and linguistic aspects of finite-state methods
2. Finite-state models of language
3. Practices for building lexical transducers for the world's languages.
4. Specification and implementation of sets, relations and multiplicities in
   NLP using finite automata
5. Constraint-based grammars and k-ary regular relations
6. Machine learning of finite-state models of natural language
7. Finite-state manipulation software (with relevance to the above themes)

The descriptions of the topics above are not meant to be complete, and should
extend to cover all traditional FSMNLP topics. Submitted papers or abstracts
may fall in several categories.
