***Call for Participation***
Depling 2017
Fourth International Conference on Dependency Linguistics
Pisa, Italy
18-20 September 2017

The Depling 2017 conference in Pisa is the fourth meeting in the
recently established series of international conferences on Dependency
Linguistics which started in Barcelona in 2011 and continued in Prague
(2013) and Uppsala (2015). The conference responds to the growing need
for a conference dedicated to dependency-based approaches in linguistics
and natural language processing. The program of this year includes
contributions ranging from papers advancing new theoretical models,
through empirical studies of one or more languages, as well as
experimental investigations of computational systems of dependency
parsing and linguistic knowledge extraction, to the design and
construction of dependency-based linguistic resources (both treebanks
and lexicons) for a wide range of languages.

This year the conference is held in conjunction with the biennial
meeting of SIGPARSE, namely the International Conference on Parsing
Technologies (IWPT 2017,,
organized by the Special Interest Group on “Natural Language Parsing” of
the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). IWPT 2017 will take
place immediately after Depling 2017, from the 20th to 22nd of September
2017. The two conferences have an overlapping event, held on September
20th and focusing on different aspects of dependency parsing, in which
the results of a shared task, named “Extrinsic Parser Evaluation” (EPE, and jointly organized by Depling and IWPT, are
presented and discussed from different and complementary perspectives.

The conference program also includes the contribution of two
distinguished keynote speakers:
- Yoav Goldberg (Bar Ilan University)
- Eva Hajičová (Charles University in Prague)
