Call for Papers

The Fourth International Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for
Computational Morphology (SFCM 2015)


Workshop date: September 17–18, 2015
Location: University of Stuttgart, Germany
Deadline for registration of abstracts: April 16, 2015
Submission deadline: April 19, 2015


The Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology
(SFCM) brings together researchers, developers, and users in the area
of computational morphology.  The focus of SFCM are actual working
systems for linguistically motivated morphological analysis and
generation, computational frameworks for implementing such systems,
and linguistic frameworks suitable for computational implementation.
Applications of morphological systems, e.g., in natural language
processing, linguistics, or digital humanities, are also relevant

From the point of view of computational linguistics, morphological
resources form the basis for all higher-level applications.  This is
especially true for languages with a rich morphology like German,
Finnish, Polish, or Latin.  A morphology component should thus be
capable of analyzing single wordforms as well as whole corpora.  For
many practical applications, not only morphological analysis, but also
generation is required, i.e., the production of surfaces corresponding
to specific categories.

Apart from uses in computational linguistics, there are numerous
practical applications that can benefit from morphological analysis
and/or generation or even require it, for example in textual analysis,
word processing, information retrieval, or dialog systems.  These
applications have specific requirements for morphological components,
including requirements from software engineering, such as programming
interfaces or robustness.

The proceedings of SFCM 2015 will be published by Springer-Verlag in
their CCIS series (as for the previous editions of SFCM).

The SFCM 2015 keynote will be given by Magda Ševčíková (Charles
University in Prague) on the topic of Morphology within the
Multi-Layered Annotation Scenario of Prague Dependency Treebank.

SFCM is an activity of the SIG Generation and Parsing of the German
Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology (GSCL).

* Topics

The topics of this workshop include technical and linguistic aspects
related to the development of systems and frameworks for computational
morphology, applications and evaluation of such systems and
frameworks, as well as interactions between computational morphology
and formal, quantitative, and descriptive morphology.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Software frameworks for developing morphological components.
- Open-source systems, tools, and resources for analyzing and
  generating word forms.
- Linguistic frameworks for computational morphology.
- Implementations of formal models of morphology for individual
  languages and language families, including historical languages and
  language variants.
- Use of morphological analysis and generation in NLP applications.
- Use of morphological systems in linguistic research, i.e., studies
  that address formal morphological issues with the help of
  computational methods, tools, and resources.
- Use of morphological systems in digital humanities research.
- Approaches for handling phenomena at the interface between
  morphology and neighboring levels of linguistic description, such as
  phonetics, morphophonology, and syntax.
- Methods and criteria for evaluating morphological components with
  respect to performance, quality, and coverage.
- Software engineering aspects: APIs, robustness, performance,
  hardware/software requirements, resource usage.
- License models, versioning, and legal aspects.

The workshop includes a demo session for presenting individual systems
and resources and in-depth discussion.

* Submissions

We invite researchers to submit original work in one of the following

- Long papers describing complete works of research (up to 20 pages,
  including references)

- Short papers describing smaller complete works of research or novel
  challenges or visions (up to 10 pages)

Submissions must be in English.  Reviewing of papers will be
double-blind by the members of the program committee, and all
submissions will receive several independent reviews.  Papers
submitted at review stage must not contain the authors' names,
affiliations, or any information that may disclose the authors'

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their research
at the workshop as talk or as a poster.  Accepted papers will be
published in the proceedings of the workshop.

The papers must use the Springer-Verlag LNCS format.  We recommend
using the LaTeX2e class provided by Springer-Verlag.  Please strictly
follow the LNCS guidelines.  Papers must be submitted electronically
in PDF format.  For paper submissions we use EasyChair, see

        Subject: Scholarly Networks Colloquium April 16-18, 2015, Brown University

Scholarly Networks Colloquium
April 16-18, 2015, Brown University

The Virtual Humanities Lab in the Department of Italian Studies at
Brown University, in collaboration with the Center for Digital
Scholarship in the Brown University Library, and DARIAH-Italy (Digital
Research Infrastructure for the Arts and the Humanities), will host an
international colloquium entitled Scholarly Networks and the Emerging
Platforms for Humanities Research & Publication in the Patrick Ma
Digital Scholarship Lab at the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Library from
Thursday, April 16 through Saturday, April 18, 2015.

The three-day colloquium will explore the new types of scholarly
output produced when scholars use digital methods to collaborate on,
annotate and visualize traditional materials.

Stephen Downie, Professor and Associate Dean for Research, Library,
and Information Science at the University of Illinois and Co-Director
of the HathiTrust Research Center, will deliver the keynote address.
His talk, The HathiTrust Research Center: Bringing you 4.7 billion
pages of analytic opportunities! will take place on April 16 at 5:30
p.m, and is open to the public.

The colloquium proper is open to interested members of the public;
please register by emailing italian_studies at brown.edu by April 13.
