Large linguistically interpreted (annotated) corpora are urgently needed in an increasing number of projects in the field of computational linguistics. Many groups have started to create corpus resources for a variety of languages. These corpora are used for a broad range of different applications and theoretical investigations. We aim at bringing together these activities in order to facilitate advanced and efficient corpus annotation, in order to provide re-usable resources.

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate research results in the field of corpus annotation, taking into account different types of information (morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse, ...). We invite submissions of papers constituting substantial, original, and unpublished work on all aspects of linguistically interpreted corpora, including, but not limited to:
