Constraint Grammar - Methods, Tools and Applications
in conjunction with NoDaLiDa 2017, Göteborg, Sweden, May 22, 2017


This workshop on practical and theoretical aspects of CG will be
co-located with NoDaLiDa 2017 in Gothenburg, and held on the 22nd of
May, 2017. The new edition of the workshop continues the tradition of CG
workshops at NoDaLiDa, unbroken since 2005. Apart from the traditional
CG field of corpus-oriented tagging and parsing, there is now a growing
body of applicational work, where CG provides the backbone of end
user-oriented systems in various areas of language technology, such as
spell and grammar checking, comma correction, ICALL, machine
translation, lexicography and others. We therefore envision workshop
contributions both regarding basic grammatical research and corpus
linguistics on the one hand, and CG-based applications on the other
hand. CG has always elicited a strong interest from researchers working
on less-resourced languages, and we therefore explicitly welcome work
targeting minor languages, such as the Sami languages, Greenlandic,
Faroese, Tibetan and the Celtic languages.


We invite contributions concerning CG grammars for various languages or
CG systems used in tools and applications. Research reports from fields
relevant to the CG framework on the input side - such as finite-state
analyzers, ontologies etc. - are also welcome. Finally, we are hoping
for methodological contributions and experiments exploiting advances in
expressive power in the most widely used CG compiler, CG-3. As usual, we
encourage short papers on ongoing work.

The workshop will be organized as a half-day workshop with both full and
short papers. Contributions will be reviewed anonymously, and the papers
will be published in the NoDaLiDa 2017 workshop proceedings.

We invite extended abstracts, approximately 1500 words (for an 8 page
full paper) or 750 words (for a 4 page short paper) - additional pages
with bibliographic references not included.

Final full versions of accepted papers can be submitted after the
workshop, and will be published in the NEALT Proceedings Series by
Linköping University Electronic Press.
