In early December 2006, the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics, Charles University in Prague, is organizing a two-week series of workshops and invited lectures, which include the Fifth Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 2006), the Vilem Mathesius Courses (VMC 2006), and the Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) group meeting.
The proposed TAPA 2006 workshop should open this series of events on November 30, 2006. Its purpose is to bring together people from different areas of the Natural Language Processing community, who are either interested in the problem of multi-level linguistic description of Arabic, or concerned with the resources, tools and methods used recently in the study of this language.
The organizers would like to see this workshop on Treebanking and Advanced Processing of Arabic both as an opportunity for the invited research teams to promote their relevant scientific projects, and as an open opportunity for other teams of the community to report on their original approaches or derived applications. The workshop should become a forum for explanation and informed discussion.
Combining one's participation in TAPA 2006 with the other events is expected and highly recommended, of course.
