FINAL CALL FOR CONTRIBUTED TASK PARTICIPATION

=========================================================================

ACL 2012 Workshop on “Rediscovering 50 Years of Discoveries”

To be held at ACL 2012 main conference, Jeju, Republic of Korea, July 10, 2012

Website: http://translit.i2r.a-star.edu.sg/r50/

New deadline for contributed task short paper submissions: April 15, 2012

=========================================================================

In addition to the technical program, the workshop will host a contributed-task, in the spirit of a crowd-sourcing activity, for augmenting and improving the current status of the ACL data collection.

The goal of the contributed-task is to provide a high-quality version of the textual content of the ACL Anthology as a corpus. Its rich-text XML markup will contain information on section headings, footnotes, table and figure captions, bibliographic references, italics/emphasized text portions, non-latin scripts, etc.

Eight different tasks have been proposed for automatically adding missing or correcting wrong markup to the current rich-text formats. These eight tasks include:

* Footnote identification

* Table reference identification

* Bibliographic reference identification

* De-hyphenation improvement

* Garbage/leftover removal

* TEI P5 markup generation.

* Sentence Splitting

* Math formula markup generation

Teams participating in the contributed task are encouraged to produce a short paper describing their work and presenting their results. More information can be found at http://translit.i2r.a-star.edu.sg/r50/taskintro/
