SFCM 2011

SFCM 2011 took place on August 26, 2011. The proceedings are published by Springer-Verlag under the title Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology (CCIS 100).
We would like to thank all participants for the overwhelmingly positive feedback!

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. See the SFCM 2009 Web site for information on the first edition.  The proceedings of SFCM 2009 were published by Springer-Verlag in the series Communications in Computer and Information Science.  The proceedings of SFCM 2011 will again be published by Springer-Verlag, as CCIS volume 100.

SFCM 2009 focused on systems for a specific language (German). The main theme of SFCM 2011 are phenomena at the interface between morphology and syntax (regardless of the language): Many practical applications have to deal with texts, not just isolated word forms. This requires to handle phenomena that cannot be easily classified as either “morphologic” or “syntactic.” Examples of such phenomena are clitics in Spanish, particle verbs in German, or compounds in English. See the Call for Papers for more information.

SFCM 2011 will be held on August 26, 2011 in Zurich, Switzerland. See the local information for more information about the venue.
