The 9th Linguistic Annotation Workshop

June 05, 2015, co-located with NAACL in Denver, Colorado, USA

Workshop Description

Linguistic annotation of natural language corpora is the backbone of supervised methods for statistical natural language processing. It also provides valuable data for evaluation of both rule-based and supervised systems and can help formalize and study linguistic phenomena.

The LAW provides a forum for presentation and discussion of innovative research on all aspects of linguistic annotation, including creation/evaluation of annotation schemes, methods for automatic and manual annotation, use and evaluation of annotation software and frameworks, representation of linguistic data and annotations, etc.

LAW IX is the annual workshop for the ACL Special Interest Group on Annotation (SIGANN).
