                                    CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
                                                FRAME 2007
Building Frame Semantics Resources for Scandinavian and Baltic Languages
                                  Tartu, Estonia, May 24, 2007
                                 http://nlp.cs.lth.se/frame2007/
                       Workshop colocated with NODALIDA 2007
************************************************************************
***************


Data annotated with role-semantic information are becoming an ever 
more important resource for many semantic systems. They form the core 
element to develop large coverage, high-performance, and reusable 
semantic parsers, classifiers as well as applications that include 
lexicography, term and information extraction, semantic processing of 
the web, text-to-scene conversion systems, etc.

The workshop will be a review of on-going research and results in the 
area. The detailed program is available from this web page: http://
nlp.cs.lth.se/frame2007/program.shtml. The workshop also intends to 
be a forum for the research community to review current initiatives 
and methods as well as ideas to start the construction of role 
annotated corpora and possibly share it across a family of related 
languages.

It  will take place in the NODALIDA 2007 conference and will include 
a round table where participants will have the opportunity to discuss 
and try to propose an agenda to build frame semantic resources for 
the Scandinavian and Baltic languages. Active participation and/or 
commitments from the presenters or the public to set up this agenda 
will be welcome.

To participate in the workshop, you have to register to the main 
conference: http://math.ut.ee/nodalida2007/registration.html and to 
pay the registration fee. Registration to the workshop is free. 
Simply send an e-mail to frame2007 at cs dot lth dot se.
