TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and treebanks. The 16th edition of TLT will return to the heart of Europe, at Charles University, Prague, in January 2018.

For 16 years now, TLT has served as a venue for new and ongoing high-quality work related to syntactically-annotated corpora, i.e., treebanks; with a focus on all the aspects of treebanking – descriptive, theoretical, formal and computational – but also going beyond treebanks, including other levels of annotation such as frame semantics, coreference or events, to name only a few.

Co-located workshop: Workshop on Provenance and Annotation

This year, the TLT is co-located with the Workshop on Provenance and Annotation in Computational Linguistics 2018, taking place also in Prague (same venue as TLT), on January 22nd, 2018, organized by Miriam Butt of University of Konstanz, Germany. The workshop is free of charge (please use the TLT registration form to register for the Workshop).

Co-located workshop: CRH

Since TLT in Warsaw, the CRH ("Corpus-based Research in the Humanities") workshop has been collocated with TLT. This year, it takes place just a couple hours away - in Vienna, Austria, immediately following the TLT.
