International Conference on Linguistic Resources

and Tools for Natural Language Processing

 

     We invite papers presenting original and unpublished research in all areas related to Linguistic Resources and Tools for Natural Language Processing. Submitted papers can include descriptions of complete, in progress or theoretical research work; case studies, demos and review papers are also encouraged.

      We call for contributions to be presented in the main Conference that range from theoretical and applied linguistics to computational models, resources and technologies related to any language. Research evidencing peculiarities of the Romanian spoken or written language per se or in contrast with other languages or within its idioms, describing multi-word expressions, syntactic and semantic structures, or pragmatic usage, culture-bound or nature-related, the formation of the modern Romanian language, etc. are encouraged.

      ReTeRom is a national funded project dedicated to the development of resources and technologies for the development of human-machine interfaces in Romanian language. This year, the 3rd project workshop (as a closed meeting for the project partners) will be organised together with the ConsILR conference.
