Large-scale Grammar Development and Grammar Engineering
Research Workshop of the Israel Science Foundation
University of Haifa, Israel, 25-28 June, 2006
Linguistically motivated approaches to Natural Language Processing (NLP) in recent years have made significant advances in terms of linguistic coverage, wealth of analysis and efficiency of processing. However, large-scale grammar development still could benefit from improvements in grammar engineering. The Workshop is intended as a forum for discussing ongoing work in declarative, constraint- and resource-based approaches, informed by linguistic theory. It will cover various aspects of the computational implementation of grammars based on linguistic knowledge, and in particular address issues of grammar engineering and modularity. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
The format of the Workshop is deliberately informal: it will include oral presentations, both invited and contributed, but will leave ample time for informal discussions, demonstrations and brainstorming. The Workshop provides an opportunity to present the current state-of-the-art, as well as future needs and directions. Complete works as well as work in progress are equally welcome for presentation.
To encourage interaction and collaboration, an extensive social program is planned, including a welcome reception, a banquet and a one-day guided tour.
The Workshop is funded by the Israel Science Foundation, with a generous support from The Caesarea Edmond Benjamin de Rothschild Foundation Institute for Interdisciplinary Applications of Computer Science.
