9 December 2005, ILLC Workshop "Whither DOP?", Room 3.27, Euclides Building, Plantage Muidergracht 24, Amsterdam

Date: 9 December 2005
Time: 10:00-18:00
Location: Room 3.27, Euclides Building, Plantage Muidergracht 24, Amsterdam

Now that the DOP approach has entered its 15th year from its original conception, the time has come to critically look back and think afresh about the future. What went astray with DOP's statistical estimator and has it been solved? What are the problems related to DOP's productive units, and how can they be redressed? What else is still to be done in DOP? And how far can the model be stretched?

DOP has led to statistical extensions of Lexical-Functional Grammar, Head-driven Phrase-Structure Grammar and Tree-Adjoining Grammar. It has been applied to machine translation, speech understanding, music analysis, problem-solving and equational reasoning. Can it be extended to other fields of cognition? What are the counter-examples that DOP has to face? And what is its relation with frameworks like Case-Based Reasoning and Probabilistic Inductive Logic Programming?

This workshop aims to provide an informal discussion platform on DOP and is open to everyone. Each talk will discuss one or more open problems and will be followed by ample discussion. The workshop is also meant to give an overview of the projects and/or recently founded research groups on DOP at the University of Amsterdam, the University of St Andrews, at Dublin City University and the University of Essex.
