The 6th  Linguistic Annotation Workshop (The LAW VI)
Sponsored by the ACL Special Interest Group on Annotation (SIGANN)

July 12-13, 2012
ICC Jeju
Jeju, Republic of Korea

Linguistic annotation of natural language corpora is the backbone of 
supervised methods of statistical natural language processing. The Sixth 
LAW will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of innovative 
research on all aspects of linguistic annotation, including 
creation/evaluation of annotation schemes, methods for automatic and 
manual annotation, use and evaluation of annotation software and 
frameworks, representation of linguistic data and annotations, etc. As 
in the past, the LAW will provide a forum for annotation researchers to 
both work towards standardization, best practices, and interoperability 
of annotation information and software.

The special theme for LAW VI is Collaborative Annotation (both 
community-based and crowd-sourced). The workshop will include a special 
session on this topic. We invite submissions relating to this theme as 
well as any aspect of linguistic annotation, including:

Collaborative annotation
--	Issues, strategies, and results for community-based 
annotation of common (shared) resources
--	Issues, strategies, and results for crowd-sourcing 
linguistic annotations

Annotation procedures:
--	Innovative automated and manual strategies for 
--	Machine learning and knowledge-based methods for 
automation of corpus annotation
--	Creation, maintenance, and interactive exploration of 
annotation structures and annotated data

Annotation evaluation:
--	Inter-annotator agreement and other evaluation metrics 
and strategies
--	Qualitative evaluation of linguistic representation

Annotation access and use:
--	Representation formats/structures for merged annotations 
of different phenomena, and means to explore/manipulate them
--	Linguistic considerations for merging annotations of 
distinct phenomena

Annotation guidelines and standards:
--	Best practices for annotation procedures and/or 
development and documentation of annotation schemes
--	Interoperability of annotation formats and/or frameworks 
among different systems as well as different tasks, frameworks, 
modalities, and languages

Annotation software and frameworks:
--	Development, evaluation and/or innovative use of 
annotation software frameworks

Annotation schemes:
--	New and innovative annotation schemes
--	Comparison of annotation schemes
