Innovative hybrid approaches to the processing of textual data
April 22, 2012, Avignon, France


Submission Deadline: Jan 27, 2012

The hybrid approach term covers a large set of situations in which different
approaches are combined in order to better process textual data and to
attempt a better achievement of the dedicated task.

Among the hybridizations the possible combinations are unlimited. The most
frequent combination, as stressed during The Balancing Act in 1994,
addressed machine learning and rule-based systems. Beyond this, the
hybridization can be augmented with distributionnal approaches, syntactic
and morphological analyses, semantic distances and similarities, graph
theory models, cooccurrences of linguistic units (e.g., word and their
dependencies, word senses and pos-tag, NEs and semantic roles,...),
knowledge-based approaches (terminologies and ontologies), etc.

As a matter of fact, the hybridization implies to define a strategy to
efficiently combine several approaches: cooperation between approaches,
filtering, voting or ranking of the multiple system outputs, etc.

Indeed, the combination of these different methods and approaches appears to
provide more complete and performant results. The reason is that each method
is sensitive and efficient with given data and within given contexts. Hence,
their combination may improve both precision and recall. The coverage is
indeed improved, while the exploitation of different methods may also lead
to the improvement of the precision since their use within filtering, voting
etc. modes becomes possible.

In this workshop, we favour the extended meaning of the hybridization of
methods, applied to various application areas, such as (but do not feel
constrained by these):
- automatic creation of linguistic resources
- POS tagging
- building and structuring of terminologies
- information retrieval and filtering
- information extraction
- linguistic annotation
- semantic labeling
- sign language recognition and transcription
- oral data transcription
- filtering and validation of lexical resources
- text summarization
- question/answering system
- natural language generation
- etc.

We invite authors to submit novel methods and novel conceptions of the
hybridization performed in various areas related to the textual data
