Welcome to TLT10!

The 10th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT10) will be held in Heidelberg on 6-7 January, 2012.

The TLT workshop series has proven successful in providing a forum for researchers in the field of Computational Linguistics who are experts in the design, creation and exploitation of annotated corpora and their relation to linguistic theories.

Treebanks have become crucial for the development of data-driven approaches to natural language processing, human language technologies, grammar extraction, and linguistic research in general. Many projects aim at compiling representative treebanks for specific languages. Other projects focus on the development of tools for the exploration of treebanks, develop annotation beyond syntactic structure and beyond a single language, and explore the usage of linguistic annotation for special areas of research in linguistics, or the Humanities, in general.

The workshop invites submissions that discuss relevant innovative work in treebanking, including various aspects of morphological, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic annotation. We further encourage submissions describing work on parallel treebanks and cross-language annotation schemes, on the relation between linguistic theory and the practice of annotation, or on the exploitation of treebanks in specific applications.
