Felice Dell’Orletta of l’Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale del CNR di Pisa (ILC-CNR), and colleagues, have published The SPLeT–2012 Shared Task on Dependency Parsing of Legal Texts, in LREC 2012 Conference Proceedings: Semantic Processing of Legal Texts (SPLeT-2012) Workshop, pp. 42-51.
Here is the abstract:
The 4th Workshop on “Semantic Processing of Legal Texts” (SPLeT–2012) presents the ﬁrst multilingual shared task on Dependency Parsing of Legal Texts. In this paper, we deﬁne the general task and its internal organization into sub–tasks, describe the datasets and the domain–speciﬁc linguistic peculiarities characterizing them. We ﬁnally report the results achieved by the participating systems, describe the underlying approaches and provide a ﬁrst analysis of the ﬁnal test results.
