Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-2000)

a workshop to be held at Coling 2000,
the 18th International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Luxembourg, 6 August 2000

Topic and Motivation

Large linguistically interpreted (annotated) corpora are urgently needed in an increasing number of projects in the field of computational linguistics. Many groups are currently creating corpus resources for a variety of languages. These corpora are used for a broad range of different applications and theoretical investigations. We aim to bring together these activities in order to facilitate advanced and efficient corpus annotations which will provide are-usable resources.

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate research results in the field of corpus annotation, taking into account different types of information. The Workshop on Linguistically Interpreted Corpora focues on:

  • tools & techniques for syntactic annotation,
  • tagging and parsing methods that aim at semi-automatic annotation,
  • error detection and correction,
  • inter-annotator-agreement,
  • representation formats and standards,
  • browsing corpora and searching for instances of linguistic phenomena,

Please note: Submissions on semantic annotation should not be submitted to this workshop, but rather to the COLING Workshop on Semantic Annotation and Intelligent Content.
