M2K (Music-to-Knowledge) North American Workshop

Friday, 3 June 2005 - Saturday, 4 June 2005

Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS)
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC)

Workshop Goals:
This two-day workshop is designed to bring together the International
Music Information Retrieval Systems Evaluation Laboratory (IMIRSEL) M2K
(Music-to-Knowledge) development team with select Music Information
Retrieval (MIR)/Music Digital Library (MDL) researchers/students from
North American countries (though all others are welcomed to join us)
with three major goals in mind:

     1. to demonstrate and train participants in the use of M2K as a
rapid prototyping system and to provide instruction on how to use M2K as
both a general development environment and as the submission mechanism
for the upcoming MIREX contests;

     2. to allow key researchers and their students to provide feedback
to the IMIRSEL M2K developers to correct and enhance the M2K system; and,

     3. to allow the assembled participants to draw up an M2K
module/functionality "wishlist" with the outcome that participants take
on specific development responsibilities of new modules/functionalities
(i.e., distribute development and assistance across the community in the
open-source tradition). NOTA BENE: M2K, in its current Alpha
configuration, is predominantly an audio-based toolset: I would like to
STRONGLY encourage the participation of researchers and students who
have expertise in symbol-based and metadata-based approaches to MIR/MDL

         Subject: CFP: Workshop on Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora
              Exploring Syntactically Annotated Corpora
                  Workshop to be held on July 14th
                      CORPUS LINGUISTICS 2005
                University of Birmingham, 14-17 July
Workshop motivation and aims
A lot of syntactically annotated corpora have been created
recently for various languages. Therefore, the question of
applicability and usefulness of such resources seems to have
become of big importance. Syntactically annotated corpora can be
viewed in two ways: 1) as a reliable base for resource creation:
further annotation (for example, semantic and discourse
annotation); automatic extraction of linguistic knowledge
(grammar and lexicon extraction; creation of automatic parsing
tools etc.) and environment for testing tools.; 2) as a base for
navigation and search: query languages and support engines.
We envisage a one-day workshop and 10-12 presentations.
Topics of interest:
- creation of resources  on top of syntactic corpora;
- various kinds of knowledge extraction;
- creation and testing of parsing tools;
- search languages;
- symbolic and subsymbolic methods for syntactic corpora
- software systems for management and accessibility to
    syntactically annotated corpora;
- various applications of  syntactic corpora.
