    Call for Papers: Workshop on Computational Modeling of Lexical
    Acquisition - The Split Meeting -


    Time: 25.-28. July 2005
    Location: University of Split, Croatia

    Abstract submission deadline: March 15th 2005

    The Croatian Language Technologies Society (CLTS) and the University of
    Split are pleased to sponsor the inaugural meeting of the Workshop on
    Computational Linguistics held in Split, Croatia, focusing on the topic
    of "Computational Modeling of Lexical Acquisition". We will build on
    the topics in formal-theoretical and computational linguistics, in
    particular on issues in learnability, complexity and modeling of
    lexical knowledge.

    This workshop is especially intended to provide a forum for the
    presentation of unique and original research on computational
    linguistic topics in the domain of learning of lexical properties, i.e.
    lexical acquisition, including but not limited to the following topics:

    a. machine learning methods for lexical acquisition
    - speech and language segmentation into lexical units
    - induction and learning of phonological and morphological structure
    - inducing formal grammars from discovered structural properties
    - learning lexical semantic properties and lexical disambiguation
    - computational models of psycholinguistic aspects of lexical

    b. corpora, evaluation and applications
    - induction of part-of-speech information for tagging and automatic
    annotation (via e.g. clustering and classification, using Vector Space
    Modeling or other strategies)
    - corpora for learning phonological and morphological regularities and
    a common gold standard
    - applications using machine learning and automatic lexical acquisition
    (e.g. tagger, ontologies, textmining)
    - evaluation strategies and methods for learning approaches

    This workshop will expand into a fixed annual event organized by the
    Croatian Language Technologies Society (CLTS) to be hosted, in turn,
    and shared among all interested and committed Croatian Universities.
