 CALL FOR PAPERS

 Reversible Grammar in Natural Language Processing

 17 June 1991
 University of California
 Berkeley, California, USA

 A workshop sponsored by the
 Special Interest Groups on Generation (SIGGEN) and Parsing (SIGPARSE)
 of the
 Association for Computational Linguistics
 and supported by the
 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency


TOPICS OF INTEREST: The purpose of this workshop is to bring together
researchers whose work concerns problems of reversible grammar systems
that are designed for, or may find applications in, Natural Language
Processing. Papers are invited on significant, original and unpublished
research on all aspects of reversible grammars, including, but not
limited to:

 (1) Reversible computation (multi-directional and non-directional
 computation; algorithms for program inversion and transformation;
 efficiency issues);
 (2) Reversible natural language systems (parsers and generators
 for reversible grammars; reversibility of unification-based grammars;
 new architectures for reversible natural language processing;
 knowledge representation issues; reversible machine translation;
 lexicons for bidirectional systems; reversibility in discourse
 processing);
 (3) Reversible grammars in linguistic theory (formal characterization;
 reversibility within various grammatical frameworks, eg., GB, LFG,
 GPSG, HPSG, TAG, categorial grammars; reversibility in rule-based
 and principle-based approaches; reversibility and semantic
 compositionality).

FORMAT OF SUBMISSION: Authors should submit four copies of their
papers in hard copy form. Papers should be a minimum of four pages
and a maximum of ten single-spaced pages (exclusive of references).
The title page should include the title, full names of all authors
and their complete addresses including electronic addresses where
applicable, and a short (5 line) summary. Submissions that do not
conform to this format will not be reviewed. Send submissions to:

 Tomek Strzalkowski
 Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences
 New York University
 715 Broadway, Room 704
 New York, NY 10003, USA
 tomekcs.nyu.edu
 (+1-212) 998-3496

SCHEDULE: Papers must be received by 1 March 1991 (NOT 31 March, as in
a previous release). Authors will be notified of acceptance by 5 April
1991. A camera-ready copy of the final paper prepared in the two-column
format must be received by 10 May 1991. Accepted papers will be
included in the proceedings published by the ACL.

WORKSHOP INFORMATION: The workshop is held in connection with the 29th
Meeting of the ACL (18-21 June). Local arrangements are being handled
by Peter Norvig (Division of Computer Science, University of California,
573 Evans Hall, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA, (+1-415) 642-9533,
norvigteak.berkeley.edu).

ORGANIZING COMMITTEE: Marc Dymetman, Gertjan van Noord, Patrick
Saint-Dizier, Tomek Strzalkowski.

| CALL FOR PAPERS |
| ***************** |
\__________________________________________________________________________/


The Center For Neural Engineering of the university of Southern California 
invites all students interested in Emotions to submit a paper to be eventually 
presented during a one-day Workshop (of a date t.b.a. at the End of February 
1991).
The Workshop is opened to Graduate students (MA,MS,PhD) and College Seniors 
irrespective to their major (faculty will only be considered for publication), 
having pursued (or pursuing) research activities on such aspects of Emotions as

 - The nature of Emotion
 - The physiology of Emotion
 - The perception of Emotions
 - (Psycho-)Linguistic issues related to Emotion
 - The relations between Emotion and Cognition
 - Developemental aspects of Emotion
 - Artificial Intelligence models of Emotions
 - Neural network models of Emotions
 - Philosophical issues of Emotion and reductionism
 - ...

Applicants should send a 2 page summary of the proposed paper and a letter of 
motivation in which they state their status, major, interests, name, address and
telephone number (for reply).

Materials should be submitted by January 31st to

 Jean-Marc Fellous
 Center for Neural Engineering
 University of Southern California
 Los Angeles CA 90089-2520
 Telephone (213) 740 3506
 email fellousrana.usc.edu

ps: Travel expenses will not be covered by the CNE, but lunch will be provided.
pps: Authors of the chosen papers will receive a copy of the presented
papers (by mail if they could not attend the Workshop).
