             Subject: REMINDER: EUROLAN Workshop on Multi-layer Corpus-based

                              SUBMISSIONS DUE APRIL 15

                                   EUROLAN 2001
                                 Summer Institute
              Creation and Exploitation of Annotated Language Resources

                         MULTI-LAYER CORPUS-BASED ANALYSIS

                              July 30 - August 1, 2001
                                   Iasi, Romania


                   Dan Cristea, University "A.I. Cuza", Iasi, Romania
                   Nancy Ide, Vassar College, USA
                   Daniel Marcu, ISI, University of Southern California
                   Massimo Poesio, University of Edinburgh

                  Corpora annotated for a variety of linguistic features are
                  becoming increasingly available. Part of speech annotated
                  corpora are commonplace; treebanks in a variety of
                  languages are available or under development; and corpora
                  annotated for various features of discourse, including
                  co-reference and discourse structure, are also available
                  (e.g., the MUC corpora). In addition, large speech corpora
                  annotated with phonetic transcriptions and prosodic
                  analysis and various multi-lingual aligned corpora are
                  available from centers such as the Linguistic Data
                  Consortium and the European Language Resources

                  This workshop will address issues of using corpora
                  annotated for multiple layers (e.g., syntax and discourse,
                  prosody and part of speech, etc.) or combining multiple
                  layers of annotation in natural language analysis. We
                  invite submissions on the following topics:

                      o Research that exploits information on different
                        linguistic levels;

                      o Consideration and demonstration of the ways in which
                        information from different layers can be used in
                        automatic language processing;

                      o Compatibility of corpora annotated for different
                        linguistic layers, including means to harmonize
                        different annotation types and levels;

                      o Tools for exploiting different levels of annotation.

                  The workshop will be held in conjunction with the EUROLAN
                  2001 Summer School on Creation and Exploitation of
                  Annotated Language Resources, to be held in Iasi, Romania
                  from 30 July - August 11, 2001. Because EUROLAN 2001 is
                  concerned with a wide variety of types of linguistic
                  annotation, the workshop will serve to complement the
                  content of lectures and tutorials that are part of the
                  School's main program. Registration for the workshop is
                  included in the Summer School registration fee.


                  Papers should report on original work not previously
                  presented elsewhere. The workshop is intended to provide a
                  forum for discussion and a means to receive feedback for
                  future development; therefore, papers describing both
                  completed work and work-in-progress are acceptable.

                  Submissions of 3500-5000 words should be sent via email to
                  ide@cs.vassar.edu with the subject line "EUROLAN 2001
                  WORKSHOP SUBMISSION". Submissions in Postscript, PDF, or
                  plain ASCII text formats are acceptable.


                  Deadline for receipt of submissions
