High-level Methodologies for Grammar Engineering
(HMGE 2013)
ESSLLI 2013 Workshop (Language and Computation Area)
University of Düsseldorf, Germany
August 12-16, 2013
Many grammatical frameworks have been proposed over the last decades
to describe the syntax (and semantics) of natural language. Among the
most widely used, one may cite Tree-Adjoining Grammar (TAG) [Joshi
et. Al, 1975], Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) [Bresnan and Kaplan,
1982], or Head- driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) [Pollard and
Sag, 1994]. These frameworks present theoretical and practical
interests. From a theoretical point of view, they provide a formal
device for the linguist to experiment with her/his theories. From a
practical point of view, they make it possible to automatically
process natural language in applications such as dialog systems,
machine translation, etc. They differ in their expressivity and
complexity. Some reveal themselves more adequate for the description
of a given language than others. Still, for many of these frameworks,
large resources (i.e., grammars) have been designed, at first by hand,
and later via dedicated tools (e.g., integrated grammar environments
such as XLE for LFG [King et al, 2000]). In this workshop, we are
concerned with this complex task of grammar engineering, keeping in
mind the two above-mentioned theoretical and practical interests.
HMGE is open to submissions on topics including, but not limited to:
* development, maintenance and enhancement of grammars
* semi-automatic acquisition of grammars
* debugging environments for grammar design
* dedicated description languages for grammar engineering
* applications of large-scale grammars
The workshop will be held as part of ESSLLI in August 2013 in
Düsseldorf, Germany. More information about ESSLLI can be found at the
ESSLLI web pages at
Paper submission deadline: March 10, 2013
Reviews due: April 28, 2013
Camera ready version: May 19, 2013
Workshop: August 12-16, 2013
Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files and be prepared
using the Springer LNAI/LNCS format. Detailed formatting instructions
can be found at:
HMGE accepts two kinds of submissions:
- full papers (12 pages including references) reporting completed,
significant research,
- short papers (6 pages including references) reporting ongoing
work and partial results.
Each submission will be reviewed by three program committee
members. Accepted long papers will be presented within 20 minutes
talks plus 10 minutes for questions. Accepted short papers will be
presented within 10 minutes talks plus 10 minutes for questions. Both
paper types will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Since reviewing will be blind, the submission should not include the
authors' names and affiliations. Other identifying information such as
obvious self-references (e.g., "We showed in [12] ...") and financial
or personal acknowledgements should be omitted in the submitted papers
whenever feasible.
Papers have to be submitted via the easychair conference management
system using the following link:
