Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology
sfcm2009 > Topics


The topics of this workshop include both technical aspects, applications, and uses of systems and frameworks for computational morphology. While purely theoretical submissions may be relevant, the focus of the workshop is clearly on actual, working systems and prototypes.

The workshop will mainly focus on German, but contributions for other languages are encouraged in order to demonstrate open-source tools and runtime software for full-scale morphologies. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Frameworks for developing morphological components.
  • Open-source tools and resources for morphology.
  • Descriptions of systems for analyzing and generating wordforms, especially for German.
  • Suitability of morphological components for interactive use.
  • Use cases for morphological analysis and generation in applications.
  • Reports on actual uses of morphological analysis and generation in applications.
  • Methods and criteria for evaluating morphologic components with respect to performance, quality, and coverage.
  • Software engineering aspects: APIs, robustness, performance, hardware/software requirements, resource usage.
  • License models and legal aspects.

There will be opportunities for demonstrating systems.
