Beyond shallow analyses - Formalisms and statistical modeling for deep analyses
The workshop is organized by JST CREST (Japan)
Corpus-based methods both in linguistics and NLP need breakthroughs
for further development. Applications such as machine translation,
Q/A with deductive inference ability, intelligent dialogue systems,
etc. require deeper representation of meanings than surface
constituent structures. Machine learning techniques also have to
exploit more linguistically motivated features. Combining
corpus-based methods with linguistic formalisms may give rise to a new
type of linguistics.
This workshop addresses issues such as
Corpus annotation beyond surface constituent structures
Grammar acquisition from annotated corpora based on linguistic theories
Methods of combining linguistic formalisms with statistical modeling
Corpus-based techniques enhanced by linguistic formalisms
We welcome papers expressing original and interesting ideas concerning
the above issues, even though empirical evaluation through large
experiments remains to be provided.
Submission deadline: January 31, 2004
Notification of acceptance: February 20, 2004
Workshop date: March 21, 2004
(This WS will not prepare a printed version of the proceedings.
Participants are expected to download papers to be presented and bring
them to the site. However, we plan to publish a post-workshop
proceedings as a book.)
Submissions should follow the format of the IJCNLP-04 main conference
and should not exceed four (4) pages including references. We
strongly recommend the use of the LaTeX style files or Word style
files provided by IJCNLP-04. The files and the detailed description
of the format are available at the following site.
Since the reviewing process will be blind, the papers should not
include the authors' names and affiliations. Further more,
self-references that reveal the author's identity should be avoided.
All papers must be submitted electronically via e-mail to Yusuke Miyao
(firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 31, 2004. PDF and PostScript
files are acceptable. In the body of the submission e-mail, please
include the following information: title, name(s) of author(s),
affiliation(s), e-mail address of the contact person.
