Preface

The tradition of annual international workshops on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT) dates back to 2002, when the series was first launched in Sozopol, Bulgaria. Part of this proud tradition is to host TLT in Norway in years after the workshop was held in Prague, Czech Republic. With a sense of tradition as well as pride, this volume comprises the proceedings of the 17th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 2018), held on the campus of the University of Oslo, Norway, on December 13 and 14, 2018.

TLT addresses all aspects of treebank design, development, and use. As ‘treebanks’ we consider any pairing of natural language data (spoken or written) with annotations of linguistic structure at various levels of analysis, ranging from e.g. morpho-phonology to discourse. Annotations can take any form (including trees or general graphs), but they should be encoded in a way that enables computational processing. Reflecting growing community interest in natural language understanding, TLT 2018 includes a thematic session on the interface between syntax and semantics and on ‘meaning banking’ and its applications.

The worshop received 21 submissions from all over Europe and the US (and one each from Brazil and Japan), of which 15 are collected in this volume and will be presented at the conference. All submissions were reviewed by at least three experts in the field, and the final selection was made by the Programme Committee. We are indebted to everyone who contributed to the reviewing and selection process. The conference programme is complemented by two invited keynotes by distinguished researchers from Poland and The Netherlands, as well as by a soul-searching panel discussion on the topic

Syntactico-Semantic Representations in Natural Language Processing: Vital, Venerable, or Vacuous?

TLT 2018 is made possible by the joint work of many dedicated individuals, in particular the Programme Committee and the TLT Steering Committee (Jan Hajic, Erhard Hinrichs, Sandra Kübler, Joakim Nivre, and Petya Osenova); we warmly acknowledge their enthusiasm and community spirit. We are grateful to the Department of Informatics and to the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Oslo for generously making available financial support, infrastructure, and staff time. The workshop is financially supported by the Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, who have co-located a meeting of their international research group SynSem: From Form to Meaning and, thus, make an important contribution to keeping participation fees at quite reasonable levels (by Norwegian standards).

With not quite one week to go, we expect some 40–45 participants at the workshop and much look forward to welcoming our colleagues and peers to Oslo.
