SWEDISH TREEBANK SYMPOSIUM
28-29 November 2002, Växjö University, Sweden
Call for Submissions
The aim of this two-day symposium is to bring together researchers and
potential users in order to discuss the possibilities of building a
large Swedish treebank, containing both spoken and written language.
The symposium is financed by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation
and is the first step towards a large-scale Swedish treebank project for
which support will be sought from several sources. There are also plans
to initiate a Nordic collaboration project in this area. The first day will
be devoted to the general problems of building a treebank, while the second
day will focus on the special problems of building a Swedish treebank.
(The official conference language will be English for the first day and
Swedish for the second day.) The symposium will take place at Teleborgs
slott on the campus of Växjö University 28-29 November 2002. Participation
is free of charge.
Topics of interest
We invite submission of extended abstracts (maximum 1500 words) on topics
relevant to the building of a Swedish treebank, including but not limited to:
- grammatical theory, analysis and coding
- software for automatic and interactive grammatical analysis
- selection of data from spoken and written Swedish
- requirements and desiderata from user perspectives
- experiences from previous treebank projects
Abstracts (in plain text, Postscript or PDF) should be sent to Joakim Nivre
(email@example.com) no later than August 15, 2002 (only electronic submission
is accepted). Notification of acceptance will be issued September 15, 2002.
Those who wish to attend without offering a paper are asked to briefly
motivate their interest, as the number of participants is limited.
