Computational Linguistics – Applications (CLA'09)

Post conference report


logo_cla.png

It seems that the motto of our workshop „Show the system in action” has been accepted by the NLP community. This year 33 papers were submitted (90% increase from last year); 19 of them were accepted by the programming committee. 15 papers were presented during the workshop – our guests from Iran or Tunisia seemingly found Poland too far away from their homelands. Still, 11 countries were represented in the workshop, mainly from the Western Europe.

The workshop was composed of oral presentations and the demo-poster session. Presentations, given on Tuesday (October, 12th), were divided into three sessions:

  1. Information Retrieval,
  2. Use of NLP Tools In practical application,
  3. Parsing issues; Linguistic resources.
In the evening the audience voted for the best presentations of each of the session as well as the best overall performance. The voters used their mobile phones and the result were known immediately – to the chairman. The winners were presented officially at the Gala Ceremony (In the Oscar Ceremony fashion). The Information Retrieval session was one by Igor Leturia from Spain – or rather his virtual agent who could fluently answer any question posed in the Basque language. The session on Practical Applications was won by Eric Wehrli from Switzerland and his micro-scanner that read German texts and translated them into English. Parsing issues were best presented by charming Katarzyna Moroz from Poznań (Poland) who convinced the audience that her new parsing algorithm using pregroup grammars will soon outperform existing ones. And finally, after the three nominees had been presented, the Oscar went to...Spain.

The demo-poster session took place on Wednesday morning. It looked as if the participants had not celebrated too long into the Tuesday night – at 9 a.m. almost all of them were ready to put their applications under the pressure of real tests. Well, the winner did not understand the chairman’s Basque too well... she obviously preferred her master, Igor.


See you in 2010. Take your virtual assistants with you!
