Treebanks are language resources that provide annotations at
various levels of linguistic structure beyond the word level.
They typically provide syntactic constituent or dependency
structures for sentences, and often extend to functional and
predicate-argument structure.
Treebanks have become crucially important for the development of
data-driven approaches to natural language processing, human
language technologies, grammar extraction and linguistic research
in general. A growing number of projects explore annotation beyond
syntactic structure (including, for instance, semantic, pragmatic
and rhetorical annotation) and beyond a single language (for
instance, parallel treebanks).

Experiences in building treebanks have shown that there is a
relation between formal linguistic theory and the practice of
annotation. Since the practices of building treebanks have proved
that aiming at more detailed descriptions of the data becomes more
and more theory-dependent, the connections between treebank
development and linguistic theories need to be tightly connected
in order to ensure the necessary information flow between them.
This series of workshops aims to provide a forum for researchers
and advanced students working in these areas.

This workshop aims at building a tighter collaboration between
people working in various areas of the Humanities (such as
literature, philology, history etc.) and the research community
involved in developing, using and making annotated corpora accessible.



Registration for both workshops is open till November 18th.

Information about registration fees is found here:
