The Second Workshop on Systems and Frameworks
for Computational Morphology (SFCM 2011)

Registration and program:

Workshop date: Friday, August 26, 2011

Location: University of Zurich, Switzerland

Deadline for registration: June 26, 2011

The Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology
(SFCM) aims to bring together researchers and developers in the area
of computational morphology. The focus of SFCM are actual, working
systems and frameworks based on linguistic principles and providing
linguistically motivated analyses and/or generation on the basis of
linguistic categories.

In 2011, SFCM will take place for the second time. We are happy to
announce that SFCM 2011 will feature an invited talk by

Lauri Karttunen (Stanford University)


Beyond Morphology – Pattern Matching with FST

SFCM 2011 is thus not only an excellent opportunity for meeting other
researchers and for learning about current work and recent
developments in systems and frameworks for computational morphology,
but you will also get to see and hear one of the most influential
researchers in this field in person.

You are cordially invited to attend SFCM 2011, listen to the talks,
watch the demos, and participate in the discussions--and join us for a
nice dinner after the workshop. Please register online at before June 26, 2011.
