FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
Workshop on Tagging and Shallow Processing of Portuguese
University of Lisbon, October 3, 2003
A workshop associated with the
XIX Annual Meeting of the Portuguese Linguistics Society
Recent advances on tagging and other shallow processing tools have
confirmed the key importance of these applications to enable
subsequent stages of efficient deep linguistic processing, and
to improve the quality of information retrieval services and support
the semantic web.
The goal of this workshop will be to provide a forum to discuss
experiences and exchange results between people working in this area,
and to review the current state of the art in this diverse field in
what concerns the Portuguese language.
We would like to invite presentations reporting on recent advances on
all aspects of the shallow processing of Portuguese. We encourage
the representation of a large, multidisciplinary range of aspects
including but not limited to issues related to the entire production
cycle of POS taggers and other shallow processing tools such as
tokenizers, stemmers, MWU detectors, named entity recognizers,
NP chunkers, WSD tools, PP attachment resolvers, terminology
extractors, etc., ranging from the collection of stop lists to
the integration of these tools into broader systems and applications,
and including a.o. methodologies for accurate hand tagging, linguistic
resources for training and evaluation, learning algorithms and
their eventual tuning to Portuguese, finite-state solutions,
evaluation metrics and results, selected linguistic generalizations
and specifications, etc.
We invite presentations about relevant solutions and approaches to
the above issues as well as descriptions or demos of tools, resources,
systems or projects.
