COLING-ACL '98 WORKSHOP CALL FOR PAPERS + --------------------------------------- + + Processing of Dependency-based Grammars + + --------------------------------------- + August 15, 1998 Universite de Montreal Montreal, Quebec, Canada http://tornade.ere.umontreal.ca/~polguera/Eng/DGworkshop.html http://coling-acl98.iro.umontreal.ca This one-day workshop will be a meeting point for researchers interested in the implementation of Dependency-based Grammars (DGs). It will be a forum for presenting different theoretical approaches to DGs, as well as strategies adopted for their implementation. Although the focus of this workshop is on DGs, it also aims at establishing connections between different approaches to the modeling and implementation of grammatical phenomena. Tou are invited to submit papers on the following, or related, topics: Theoretical aspects - correspondence between semantic and syntactic structures; - correspondence between syntactic structures and the surface text; - interaction between lexical and grammatical knowledge; - comparison between different DG approaches. Implementations - natural language generation with DGs; - parsing with DGs; - building dependency-annotated corpora. Additional issues - Are "pure" dependency formalisms sufficient to account for all syntactic phenomena or do they need to be augmented with phrase structures? - Should DGs be considered as a simple notational variant of other types of formal grammars or are there deep reasons for adopting them? Each speaker will be given 30 minutes to present a paper followed by 15 minutes for questions/discussions.
