Call for Papers: Second Workshop on NLP and XML
Second Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2002)
Taipei, September 1, 2002
First Call for Papers
The 2nd Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2002) will be held at COLING-2002 in Taipei on September 1, 2002. This workshop follows on from the 1st NLP and XML Workshop at NLPRS-2001 in Tokyo.
The goal of the workshop is two-fold: (1) to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of XML use in NLP (including resource and software development, applications, tools, etc.); and (2) to clarify the "big picture" for NLP applications and resources vis a vis the XML framework and development of the Semantic Web. As such, the workshop is intended not only for those already using XML, but also for members of the NLP community who seek a fuller understanding of the motivations and implications of XML and related standards for the field.
Topics to be addressed include:
Position statements concerning the implications of XML, RDF, and the Semantic Web for NLP resources and applications, together with examples;
XML use for linguistic annotation, including overall data architecture, implications for editorial practices, linkage mechanisms and issues for NLP data, etc.
Definition of data models and data categories for NLP using XML, RDF, etc.
XML standards for NLP;
XML-based generation (text, web pages, dialogue responses, etc.);
Use of XML mechanisms (schemas, XSL, XSLT, links, etc.) in specific applications/resources;
XML aware NLP tools
The program committee welcomes the submission of original, unpublished papers on any of the workshop topics and related issues.
