Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: Natural language understanding systems require a knowledge base provided with formal representations reflecting the structure of human beings’ cognitive system. Although surface semantics can be sufficient in some other systems, the construction of a robust knowledge base guarantees its use in most natural language processing applications, consolidating thus the concept of resource reuse. This conference deals with meaning and knowledge representation in the context of natural language understanding, and more particularly on the premises of the Lexical Constructional Model and FunGramKB.

Following the success of the 2012 meeting in Madrid, the 2nd International Conference on Meaning and Knowledge Representation will take place in Granada, 3-5 July 2013. The aim of the conference is to gather together researchers to share and discuss their research in the field of the LCM and FGKB models. This edition will put special emphasis on the links between knowledge engineering, ontological semantics and terminology.

This conference will be sponsored by the Research project FFI2010-15983 (Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness), the University of Granada (Department of English and German Philology and Faculty of Economics and Business Administration) and LEXICOM (interuniversity research group).
