             LG-LP 2014 - CALL FOR PAPERS


Workshop on Lexical and Grammatical Resources for Language Processing (LG-LP 
             Dublin, Ireland, 24 August 2014
This workshop is held in conjunction with  COLING 2014, co-sponsored by ASIALEX 
and endorsed by SIGLEX

The workshop aims to bring together members of the language-resource (LR) 
landscape, focusing on complex linguistic knowledge that requires linguistic 
expertise, e.g. on dictionaries, ontologies and grammars. Such manually-built 
resources are key to the development of natural language processing (NLP) tools 
and applications. The workshop intends to strengthen the cohesion of the 
scientific ‘production chain’ spanning from the construction of LRs by 
linguists to their exploitation in hybrid or symbolic NLP. It is necessary to 
increase mutual awareness between researchers along this production chain, 
regarding their activities, skills and needs, in view of improving the building 
processes of the resources, their validation and their exploitation.
Many linguists are comfortable with descriptive tasks such as checking lexical 
entries for a given feature, even if each entry requires analysing or 
pondering. On the other hand, computer scientists are familiar with 
formalization and, usually, with notions such as falsifiability or 
reproducibility, which are fundamental to sciences. Combining all these skills 
is likely to stimulate innovation. The workshop offers an opportunity of 
interaction which is required to overcome the compartmentalization between 
humanities and sciences, and to intensify co-operation between the two ends of 
the chain.
Paper Submission Deadline: May 2, 2014 (11:59 pm GMT)
