SIGANN

ACL Special Interest Group for Annotation


SIGANN is a Special Interest Group of the Association for Computational Linguistics for researchers concerned with all aspects of linguistic annotation of language resources. Its activities include:
  • The exchange and propagation of research results with respect to the annotation, manipulation and exploitation of annotated language resources, taking into account different applications and theoretical investigations in the field of language technology and research;
  • Working towards harmonization and interoperability of linguistic annotations from the perspective of the increasingly large number of tools and frameworks tht support the creation, instantiation, manipulation, and exploitation of annotated resources;
  • Working towards consensus on all issues critical to the advancement of the field of language resource annotation;
  • sponsorship of the annual Linguistic Annotation Workshop.

The Eighth Linguistic Annotation Workshop (LAW VIII) will be held August 23-24, 2013, in conjunction with the 25th International Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING 2014) in Dublin, Ireland.
