CBA 2010
Corpus-Based Approaches to
Paraphrasing and Nominalization


Barcelona, 1-2 December 2010
Universitat de Barcelona

VENUE: Universitat de Barcelona, Facultat de Filologia

CBA 2010 aims to bring together linguists and computer scientists working on corpus-based approaches to paraphrasing and nominalization.

The goal of the workshop is to discuss the theoretical basis of paraphrasing and nominalization, as well as different empirical methods for their automatic processing. This workshop also aims to evaluate to what extent the analysis of paraphrases and nominal structures can improve the quality of NLP applications. Finally, CBA 2010 might constitute a platform for the exchange of resources and tools derived from research projects.

Although paraphrasing and nominalization are established as independent research fields, a joint approach can shed light on new perspectives of analysis as yet unexplored methodological lines.
