Subject: Workshop on Textual and Lexical Resources at COLING-90

9-12 Sunday, 19 August 1990
At COLING-90, Helsinki, FINLAND

[Check at registration for location]

Work in computational linguistics is becoming increasingly sensitive
to the need for natural language data. Data are critical for theory
formulation, for the development of practical applications in the
language industries, and, in particular, for the evaluation of
computational linguistics as a whole. Of particular interest from
this point of view are recent activities concerned with the collection
of text files, with the creation of lexical data and knowledge
bases, and with the development of ways to increase the ability to
reuse and share both data and tools. The results will increase
the possibility and likelihood of cooperation across a broad range
of areas in computational linguistics.

This workshop will provide an open and informal forum within which
these activities are discussed and their relationship to current
research and development established. The results will be reported
on during COLING-90. There are no restrictions on participation
and there is no need to register specifically for the workshop.
