               CONSTRAINT GRAMMAR WORKSHOP - CALL FOR PAPERS

                Workshop in Constraint Grammar Applications
    in conjunction with NoDaLiDa 2011, Riga, Latvia, May 11th 2011

                   http://giellatekno.uit.no/cg/11/

=============================================================================

Within full-scale parsing applications, constraint grammar is the dominant
framework for parsing Nordic languages. It is used in the industry, and it
also constitutes the fundament for several academic projects aiming at corpus
tagging, treebanks and pedagogical programs.

The last years have seen extensions of CG usage along several lines:
CG has been successfully put to use in machine translation for several
language pairs, and it has been used for grammar checking and dialogue
systems.

TOPICS

All topics related to constraint grammar are of interest.
We will especially be interested in the following themes:
   1. CG-based applications
          * corpus linguistics
          * grammar checking
          * machine translation
          * etc.
   2. Evaluation
          * Rule evaluation
          * Technical performance (speed, e.g.)
          * Linguistic performance (precision, recall) and evaluation

FORMAT OF THE WORKSHOP

The workshop will consist of two parts.

   1. a tutorial on CG rule writing, including a discussion on
technological potential and perspectives
   2. a main section with ordinary talks

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS

We invite extended abstracts (approximately 1500 words) describing existing
research connected to the topics of the workshop. Submissions are
non-anonymous
and should include: title; author(s); affiliation(s); and contact author's
e-mail address, postal address, telephone and fax numbers.

Abstracts should be sent to the mail address available on the workshop www
pages.
