    Workshop on Parsing and Semantic Role Labeling
    Tilburg University, The Netherlands


    February 26, 2008
    9:30 - 17:30
    Room TZ 3 (Tias-Nimbas Building)

Call for Participation

The ILK Research group and the Communication and Information Sciences 
Department of the Faculty of Humanities of Tilburg University kindly 
invite you to participate in the Workshop on Parsing and Semantic Role 

The intrinsically related tasks of parsing and semantic role labeling 
are well-studied tasks in computational linguistics; the interest in 
them has been invigorated in recent years by the carefully defined CoNLL 
Shared Task competitions on both tasks, and the recent SemEval competition.

In this workshop we bring together researchers who apply machine 
learning techniques to parsing and/or semantic role labeling. While most 
of the work reported in the literature focuses on English, a part of 
this workshop is aimed at reporting and discussing results obtained for 
Spanish and Dutch. As for parsing, supervised and unsupervised 
approaches to parsing will be discussed. Semantic role labeling systems 
based both on constituents and dependency syntax will be presented. 
Another focus of discussion will be on the interrelation between parsing 
and semantic role labeling: how essential is parsing for semantic role 

Entrance is free. We kindly ask you to register by sending an email to 
J.F.L.Sinay at uvt.nl stating that you wish to participate, before February 
19, 2008.
