RANLP 2009 Workshop on

Between Chunking and Deep Parsing

Borovets, Bulgaria
17 September 2009

Submission deadline: 5 June 2009


After the success of the first Workshop on Partial Parsing, we are
happy to announce Partial Parsing 2. Partial parsing has become a
standard means of integrating syntactic knowledge into high level
applications such as information retrieval, machine translation, or
question answering, for which efficiency and robustness is of
importance. In comparison with chunking and deep parsing, partial
parsing consists in finding structure that is richer than chunks but
less exhaustive than full syntactico-semantic parses: partial parsing
may involve constructing nested structures (unlike simple chunking)
without creating the full parse of a sentence. However, partial
parsing is not a single concept but rather an area ranging from
chunking to almost full parsing. This workshop will bring together
researcher who work on partial parsing in its different interpretations.


The main areas of interest of the workshop include (but are not
restricted to):

. linguistic richness of partial parsers for various applications:
syntactic and semantic headedness, the degree of hierarchical
structure, semantic information (anaphora, disambiguation);

. development methodologies for partial parsers: manual, machine
learning, hybrid;

. the usability of language resources for the development of partial

. multi-lingual development of partial parsers, etc.;

. experience and utilization of existing tools for building partial
parsers for new languages;

. technical aspects of partial parsers:
. robustness, scalability;
. time and space complexity;
. expressiveness of partial parsing formalisms (regular vs. context-
free rules; unification; type hierarchies; etc.);

. applications of partial parsers: information extraction, question
answering, machine translation, web text mining, acquisition of
lexical information, etc.;

. evaluation methodologies for partial parsers: gold standards,
application-specific, reusability of evaluation resources for
different partial parsing tasks, etc.;

. ways of combining multiple partial parsers;

. comparsion (classification) of partial parsers.


Authors are invited to submit original research papers. Papers should
indicate the state of completion of the reported results. In
particular, any overlap with previously published work should be
clearly mentioned. Submissions will be judged on correctness, novelty,
technical strength, clarity of presentation, and significance/
relevance to the workshop.

Submissions should be no longer than 7 pages typeset in an 10pt font.
Guidelines are available at the RANLP 2009 web page:

Submission of papers will be handled using the START system, which
will be accessible from the workshop webpage.
