2nd Workshop on NLP and XML
Taipei, September 1, 2002
Final Call for Papers
*** Paper submission deadline: May 5, 2002 ***
The 2nd Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2002) will be held at
COLING-2002 in Taipei on September 1, 2002. This workshop follows on
from the 1st NLP and XML Workshop at NLPRS-2001 in Tokyo.
The goal of the workshop is two-fold: (1) to provide a forum for
presentation and discussion of XML use in natural language processing
(including resource and software development, applications, tools,
etc.); and (2) to clarify the "big picture" for natural language
applications and resources vis a vis the XML framework and development
of the Semantic Web. As such, the workshop is intended not only for
those already using XML, but also for members of the NLP community who
seek a fuller understanding of the motivations and implications of XML
and related standards for the field.
Topics to be addressed include:
- Position statements concerning the implications of XML, RDF, and
the Semantic Web for NLP resources and applications, together with
- XML use for linguistic annotation, including overall data
architecture, implications for editorial practices, linkage
mechanisms and issues for NLP data, etc.
- Definition of data models and data categories for NLP using XML,
- XML standards for NLP;
- XML-based generation (text, web pages, dialogue responses, etc.);
- Use of XML mechanisms (schemas, XSL, XSLT, links, etc.) in
- XML aware NLP tools.
The program committee welcomes the submission of original, unpublished
papers on any of the workshop topics and related issues.
Papers must not exceed 8 pages, including references. The title page
should include the title, authors' names, affiliations and email
addresses, and a short abstract of no more than 10 lines.
