We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming eight INTEX/NooJ workshop, to be held in Besançon, May 30-June 1, 2005.


INTEX/NooJ is a linguistic development environment that can parse texts of several million words in real time.


INTEX/NooJ includes tools to construct and maintain large-coverage lexical resources, as well as morphological and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts in order to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns, remove ambiguities, and tag simple and compound words.


INTEX/NooJ can build lemmatized concordances of large texts from Finite-State or Context-Free grammars, and can accordingly perform transformation operations on texts in cascade, in order to annotate the text, or to generate paraphrases; these features, when applied in cascade, give INTEX/NooJ the power of a Turing Machine.  INTEX/NooJ is used as a linguistic development platform, an information retrieval system, a terminological extractor, as well as to teach linguistics and computational linguistics to students.


As in the previous workshops, this meeting will be the opportunity for INTEX and NooJ users, as well as other researchers interested in NLP, to meet and to exchange their experience of development, research or teaching.  It will also be the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ.


Please, send before March 15, 2005 a one-page abstract to Max Silberztein by email. The abstract, in French or in English, should contain the title of the article, and the name, affiliation, surface mail and electronic address of each author.


All papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Authors will be notified whether their papers are accepted or rejected by April 8th, 2005. The timeslot is 30 minutes for presentations (including 5 minutes for discussions). After the conference, authors selected for publishing by the program committee will be invited to send a definitive version of their papers.
