The United Institute of Informatics Problems (UIIP) of National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and Speech synthesis and recognition laboratory, and the ELLIADD laboratory from the Université de Franche-Comté, organize the NooJ 2015 International Conference in Minsk, June 11-13 2015.
NooJ is both a corpus processing tool and a linguistic development environment that allows linguists to formalize several levels of linguistic phenomena:
- typography and spelling;
- syllabification, phonemic and prosodic transcription;
- lexicons of simple words, multiword units and discontinuous expressions;
- inflectional, derivational and agglutinative morphology;
- local and structural syntax;
- transformational syntax and paraphrase generation;
- semantic analysis and machine translation.
NooJ provides linguists with regular grammars, context-free grammars, context-sensitive grammars, unrestricted grammars as well as their graphical equivalent (finite-state, recursive and contextual graphs) to facilitate the description of each phenomenon. NooJ’s multi-layer approach allows linguists to accumulate elementary descriptions and describe phenomena that cross linguistic levels. As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows users to apply sophisticated linguistic queries to large corpora in real time, in order to construct indices and concordances, annotate texts automatically, perform semantic and statistical analyses, etc.
NooJ is open-source, freely available at www.nooj4nlp.net and over 20 linguistic modules can already be freely downloaded, as well as a manual, video tutorials, references, etc.
The NooJ conference intends to:
- give NooJ users and researchers in Linguistics and in Computational Linguistics the opportunity to meet and share their experience as developers, researchers and teachers;
- present to NooJ users the latest linguistic resources and NLP applications developed for/with NooJ, its latest functionalities, as well as its future developments;
- offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using NooJ;
- provide the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ itself (v5).
