                          CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
                Stylistics for Text Retrieval in Practice
                          SIGIR 2006 Workshop
                         Seattle, August 10, 2006


Recent years have seen an increased attention to various aspects of
automatic analysis and extraction of stylistic aspects of natural
language texts. Style may be roughly defined as the 'manner' in which
something is expressed, as opposed to the 'content' of a
message. Modelling, representing, explaining, and utilizing variation
in the manner of expression is the business of stylistic analysis.

This workshop follows four previous successful exploratory events
on stylistic analysis and will focus on the practical craft of
stylistic analysis in natural language texts.

                       THIS YEAR: BRING A DEMO!

Potentially useful applications of stylistic analysis abound,
including systems for genre-based information retrieval, authorship
attribution, plagiarism detection, context-sensitive text or speech
generation systems, organizing and retrieving documents based on their
writing style, attitude, or sentiment, quality or appropriateness
filters for messaging systems, detecting abusive or threatening
language, and more. This year, participants are expected to bring with
them a method for applying stylistic analysis to information access

Before lunch, methods will be discussed in session; after lunch,
demonstrated in practice.

                         DISCUSSION QUESTION

Participants should address the following key challenge question
in their participation proposals:


and consider the following questions for discussion in session:

1. How does style relate to other forms of non-topical textual variation?
2. What features are best for different style analysis tasks?
3. Is cross-lingual or 'universal' style analysis possible, and if so, how?
4. How might we develop useful shared resources for moving style research

                          SUBMISSION FORMAT

Send us a statement (in PDF) of up to five pages describing your
research or application with a short description (and screenshots if
possible) of the demonstration you plan to show. At the workshop we
will discuss and decide on an appropriate forum for a more permanent
record of the proceedings. If you would like a speaking slot in the
discussion session, you should indicate this in your statement of

Second call: Posters and Demonstrations

TEI Annual Members Meeting
University of Victoria, Canada
October 27-28, 2006

Deadline for submission of proposals: May 29, 2006

The TEI Consortium is happy to announce that a poster session/tool
demonstration will again be included in the program of this year's
TEI Members' Meeting in Victoria, Canada on October 27 and 28th, 2006.

The poster session will take place the morning of the second day of
the meeting, Saturday, October 28th. In addition to the poster
session on Saturday, some poster presenters will be offered the
opportunity to give a short talk about their poster at the members'
meeting on Friday, October 27th.

The topic of a poster can be a current project you are working on
using TEI encoding, a tool developed for the production or
dissemination of TEI-encoded texts, or any TEI-related topic you feel
would be of benefit
to the community. The poster can be a traditional printed poster or a
demonstration on a computer. Unfortunately the TEI cannot fund the
travel, lodging, or meals for poster presenters. The local organizer
can provide a flip chart and a table for each presenter, and wireless
internet access will be available.

If you wish to present a poster or tool demonstration at the members'
meeting in Victoria, please send a brief proposal (500-750 words)
describing your project to:


Deadline for proposals is May 29, 2006.

The proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and
successful applicants will be notified by June 19 and given further
information about presenting.
