The aim of the workshop is to bring together linguists and computer scientists working on corpus-based approaches to coreference resolution.

Universitat de Barcelona and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya begin a series of workshops devoted to Corpus-based Approaches to Discourse Analysis – CBA Workshops. We are particularly interested in innovative perspectives on the use and exploitation of corpora in going one step beyond the state of the art. The first workshop in this series, CBA-2008, will focus on “Coreference Resolution in Romance Languages.”
