Perspectives on the Swedish Treebank
Friday, 21 November (Afternoon) 2008
Hosted at SLTC 2008, Stockholm
SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP
The workshop is organized around the first release of the Swedish Treebank, which will be made available on the occasion of the Second Swedish Language Technology Conference. The treebank is based on material from the Talbanken treebank and the Stockholm-Umeå Corpus, and has been developed by the language technology groups at Uppsala University and Växjö University. The target audience includes all potential users of the treebank, as well as researchers interested in the development and use of annotated corpora in general.
The workshop will consist of three parts. First, the developers of the Swedish Treebank will give an overview of the first release of the treebank. Secondly, a number of invited speakers, representing different user perspectives, will present their impressions of the treebank in short spotlight presentations. These speakers will be given access to a pre-release of the treebank prior to the workshop. Thirdly, there will be time for general discussion about the treebank and its future releases.
