HOO-2012@BEA: Preposition and Determiner Error Correction

Call for Registration

Context

The HOO (Helping Our Own) Shared Task is concerned with
correcting textual errors. HOO 2012, which will be hosted by the
Building Educational Applications Workshop at NAACL 2012,
focusses on the correction of preposition and determiner errors
in a large collection of non-native speaker texts. These are
widely recognized to be amongst the most challenging aspects of
English lexico-syntax for non-native speakers to deal with: see
[Leacock et al. 2010] for a review.

With an increasing number of papers in natural language processing being authored by non-native English speakers (NNSs), we think it's time the community provided more support for those authors. As a field that works on computational techniques for processing text, we're in a better position than most to do something useful; so, the aim of the HOO (Helping Our Own) shared task is to promote the use of NLP tools and techniques to help improve the textual quality of papers written by NNSs in the field.
