*************

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb

are organizing the NooJ 2020 International Conference 

in Zagreb, Croatia 

on June 04-06, 2020

http://nooj2020.ffzg.unizg.hr/

*************

 

THE 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 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 an occasion to present and discover the recent developments of
NooJ itself (v5). 

 

ABOUT NooJ

NooJ is a free, open source linguistic development environment software as
well as a corpus processor. NooJ provides linguists with tools to develop
dictionaries, Regular Grammars, Context-Free Grammars, Context-Sensitive
Grammars, and Unrestricted Grammars as well as their graphical equivalents
to formalize each linguistic phenomenon. NooJ's multi-layer approach allows
linguists to accumulate elementary descriptions across different linguistic
levels.

 

NooJ is used in the Digital Humanities as it allows researchers in the
Humanities and in Social sciences to apply sophisticated queries to large
corpora in real time, in order to construct indices and concordances,
annotate texts automatically and perform statistical analyses, etc. NooJ's
linguistic engine has been inserted into a large number of NLP applications
such as automatic semantic annotators, Named Entities Recognizers,
Information extractors, Paraphrase Generation, Business Intelligence,
Machine Translation, Web Semantics, etc.
