Innovative Corpus Query and Visualization Tools

QueryVis – Workshop on Innovative Corpus Query and Visualization Tools

at Nodalida 2015, Vilnius (Lithuania), May, 11th, 2015

Recent years have seen an increased interest in and availability of many different kinds of corpora. These range from small, but carefully annotated treebanks to large parallel corpora and very large monolingual corpora for big data research. It remains a challenge to query the multilayer annotations of small corpora, to efficiently access large corpora as well as to visualize the query results.

Invited Speaker

We are proud to announce that the plenary speech “Scaling out corpus technology: the open source query and analysis engine KorAP” will be presented by Marc Kupietz (Institut für Deutsche Sprache, Mannheim).

Topics to be covered
Querying corpora with multiple levels of annotation
Querying parallel and multi-parallel corpora
Visualization of annotation and alignment
Visualization of query results over very large corpora
Querying by example
Querying multimodal corpora

Workshop Format

We are planning for a half-day workshop with paper presentations, demos and an invited talk.
Call for Papers

We are seeking short papers (4 pages) or long papers (8 pages) on the topics specified above. Papers should be formated according to the Nodalida guidelines. Submission will be through EasyChair.
Important Dates

Paper submission 16. March 2015
Information to authors 17. April 2015
