NooJ Conference 2012
June 14-16, 2012
INALCO/SEDYL and the Laboratoire de Sémio-Linguistique et Didactique (LASELDI) of the Université de Franche-Comté organize the NooJ 2012 International Conference in Paris, June 14-16, 2012.
NooJ is a linguistic development environment that allows linguists to formalize several levels of linguistic phenomena: typography and spelling; lexicons of simple words, multiword units and discontinuous expressions; inflectional, derivational and productive morphology; local and structural syntax, transformational and semantic analysis and generation. For each of these levels NooJ provides linguists with one or more formal tools specifically designed to facilitate the description of each phenomenon, as well as parsing/development/debugging tools designed to be as computationally efficient as possible, from Finite-State to Turing machines. This approach distinguishes NooJ from other computational linguistic frameworks which provide a unique formalism. As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows researchers in various social sciences to extract information from corpora by applying sophisticated queries based on concepts rather than word forms and build indices and concordances, add semantic annotations, perform statistical analyses on concepts, etc.
NooJ is freely available and linguistic modules can already be freely downloaded for over a dozen languages. See www.nooj4nlp.net for more information on NooJ.
The conference intends to
– give NooJ users and researchers in Linguistics and in Computational Linguistics the opportunity to meet and share their experience as developers, researchers and teachers;
– present to NooJ users the latest linguistic resources and NLP applications developed for/with NooJ, its latest functionalities, as well as its future developments;
– offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using NooJ.
– provide the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ itself (v3).
Topics of interest
– Typography; Spelling
– Linguistic resources; Lexical Analysis
– Local Syntax; Structural Syntax; Syntactic Parsing
– Transformational Analysis; Paraphrase Generation
– Semantic annotations; Semantic analysis
