Call for Papers
The linguistics and natural language engineering community has regained interestest in typed feature structure grammars in the recent years. In particular, efficient parsing algorithms have stimulated the development of broad-coverage computational grammars for a variety of languages. The development of these resources have raised a number of empirical and computational questions. TFSG'07 is a forum in which these questions can be asked and, maybe, answered.
Typed feature structure grammars include, for instance, construction grammar (CG), head-driven phrase structure grammar (HPSG) and some versions of categorial grammar (e.g. i-CCG). This workshop is intended for linguists who employ these theories in linguistic analysis or natural language engineering, or who investigate their formal and computational properties. Papers may address
In other words, the organizers and the program committee are especially interested in papers that present linguistic phenomena whose analysis in typed feature structure grammars is more adequate or more efficient (or less adequate or less efficient) than standard analyses; we also encourage papers that present substantial work on implementations of, or resources for, typed feature structure grammars. Comparisons of CG, HPSG, i-CCG and other theories are also welcome. Finally, the workshop is open to papers on the formal and computational properties of typed feature structure grammars, incl. complexity, learnability, and portability.
The program committee includes Lars Ahrenberg (Linköping University), Ash Asudeh (Carleton University), Emily Bender (University of Washington), Berthol Crysmann (DFKI, Saarbrücken), Stephan Kepser (Universität Tübingen), Detmar Meurers (Ohio State University), Stefan Müller (Universität Bremen), Carl Pollard (Ohio State University), Manfred Sailer (Universität Göttingen), Jesse Tseng (CNRS Loria), Ben Waldron (Cambridge University and Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and Jürgen Wedekind (University of Copenhagen).
The maximum length of the abstracts is six (6) pages. Submit an anonymous PDF file. Please use ACL style files. Contact information should be included in the e-mail text. E-mail the abstract and any questions you may have, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Extended deadline: March 9 2007. Notification of acceptance: April 1 2007.
