CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

NAACL-HLT 2010 First Workshop on Statistical Parsing of
Morphology-Rich Languages (SPMRL2010)

<http://sites.google.com/site/spmrl2010/>


Workshop date: June 5, 2010
Location: Millenium Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Early registration through May 9, 2010
Late registration through May 23, 2010

*********************************************************************
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested
in parsing languages with richer morphological structures than in
English, and to provide a forum for discussing the challenges associated
with parsing such languages and sharing strategies towards their  
solutions.
We are interested in presentations relating to actively studied areas of
research including the adaptation of existing parsing techniques to new
languages, the design of new models that take morphological information
into account, the implementation of models that allow robust statistics
to be obtained in the face of high word-form variation, and so on.

You are cordially invited to attend the talks and to participate in
the discussion.

Registration is now open!  Early registration is through May 9, 2010,
late registration is through May 23, 2010.  Please register via the
NAACL-HLT 2010 registration form:

<http://aclweb.org/membership/naaclhlt2010reg.php>

You can either register for the main conference plus SPMRL2010, or, if
you only want to participate in the workshop, you may register for
SPMRL2010 only.  The NAACL-HLT 2010 registration form has all
information about registration deadlines and fees.
