		 FINAL CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
			DEADLINE: DECEMBER 20


* NEW! CHANGE OF DATE AND POLICY: WORKSHOPS OF CL2000 WILL BE HELD *
* DURING THE CONFERENCE, BETWEEN JULY 24 AND 28, 2000. WORKSHOPS WILL *
* NOT BE POST-CONFERENCE ACTIVITIES, BUT CENTRAL EVENTS OF CL2000. *
* Organizers wishing to have their workshop after the conference on *
* July 29, should contact the workshop coordinator for a special *
* arrangement. *


CL2000 is the first conference in a major new series of annual
international conferences bringing together the various communities of
researchers who have a common interest in Computational Logic.

CL2000 includes seven streams covering various subfields of
computational logic. DOOD2000 (6th International Conference on Rules
and Objects in Databases) and LOPSTR2000 (10th International Workshop
on Logic-based Program Synthesis and Transformation) will be streams
within CL2000. Moreover, the International Conference on Logic
Programming (ICLP) is now integrated into CL2000. ILP2000 (10th
International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming) is also
collocated with CL2000.

The organisation of CL2000 will provide facilities for half-day and
one-day workshops, to be held during the conference, between July 24
and 28, 2000. Organizers that wish to organize their workshop after
the conference on July 29, should contact the workshop coordinator for
a special arrangement.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
workshops on topics in computational logic.

Anyone wishing to organise a workshop should send (possibly by email,
in text or html format) a proposal no longer than two pages to the
workshop coordinator by *** DECEMBER 20, 1999 ***. 
The proposal should describe the topic of the proposed workshop and 
its relevance to computational logic. Besides the contact information 
and the list of the organisers, the proposal should contain - when 
applicable - the following information:

- proposed duration of the workshop (half day/one day),
- description of previously organised similar workshops, 
- expected number of participants,
- character of the workshop (formal/informal, 
 via submission/invitation),
- plans for publication of the proceedings.

The workshop organisers will be responsible for maintaining a
homepage, and for producing one hard copy of the proceedings in A4 or
US-letter format. Organisers who wish to use a format different than
A4 or US-letter are expected to produce the needed copies of
proceedings as well.

Proposals will be evaluated by the program committee and decisions
will be made by January 10, 2000. Further information about the
arrangements for workshops can be obtained from the workshop
coordinator.

			 SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

				 LFG2000


		 2000 INTERNATIONAL LEXICAL FUNCTIONAL

			 GRAMMAR CONFERENCE

		 URL: http://www-lfg.stanford.edu/lfg/lfg2000/


 19 July - 20 July 2000

 The University of California at Berkeley
 as part of the BERKELEY FORMAL GRAMMAR CONFERENCE 2000
 URL: http://linguistics.berkeley.edu/~bfg2000/


	 Submission receipt deadline: 15 February 2000

	 Submissions should be sent to the LFG Program Committee

 (see addresses below)



The 5th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference will be
held as a part of the Berkeley Formal Grammar Conference 2000 at the University
of California, Berkeley from July 19-23 2000. The Berkeley event will
consist of LFG2000 (July 19-20), HPSG2000 (July 22-23) and a common day of
workshops between them (July 21), entitled Lexical and Constructional
Explanations in Constraint-Based Grammar. This event will offer a rare
opportunity for interaction among researchers of the two frameworks.


LFG2000 welcomes work both within the formal architecture of
Lexical-Functional Grammar and typological, formal, and computational
work within the 'spirit of LFG', as a lexicalist approach to language
employing a parallel, constraint-based framework. The conference aims
to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers interested
in nonderivational approaches to grammar, where grammar is seen as the
interaction of constraints from multiple levels, including category
information, grammatical relations, and semantic information. Further
information about the syntactic theory LFG can be obtained from:


 http://clwww.essex.ac.uk/LFG/




SUBMISSIONS


The conference will primarily involve 30-minute talks, and possibly a
workshop. Talks will focus on results from completed as well as
ongoing research, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and
perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational.

Presentations should describe original, unpublished work.


Abstracts and papers must be received by February 15, 2000, and should
be submitted to the program committee chairs at the address given
below. For further information or offers of organisational help,
contact the local organisers at the address below.




WORKSHOPS


Workshops are a small group of talks (2-4) on a coherent topic that
can be expected to generate opposing views and discussion with the
broader audience. Participants to workshops are usually
invited. Workshop papers should be distributed in advance among
participants and participants should refer to each others approaches.

Past LFG Conferences have included two or three workshops. Since
LFG2000 is shorter than usual, and there is a common day of
workshops between LFG2000 and HPSG2000 on July 21, we may not have any
workshops specific to LFG2000. However, at this point in time, we
welcome suggestions for workshops from potential organisers or people
with certain interests. Suggestions for workshops specific to LFG2000
should be sent to the program committee:

r.nordlingerlinguistics.unimelb.edu.au and manningcsli.stanford.edu.

Suggestions for workshops for the common day on Lexical and
Constructional Explanations in Constraint-Based Grammar should be sent
to the local organizers at bfg2000linguistics.berkeley.edu (see
http://linguistics.berkeley.edu/~bfg2000/ for further details).



TIMETABLE


 Deadline for receipt of submissions: 15 February 2000


 Acceptances sent out: 31 March 2000


 Conference: 19 July - 20 July 2000




SUBMISSION SPECIFICATIONS


People may submit either abstracts or full length papers for
refereeing. The advantages of full paper submission are that it allows
better assessment of your work and that (at least for some people)
accepted refereed full papers count as a higher status publication.


Full length papers. Papers should be no more than 15 pages, including
figures and references, in 11 or 12pt type, on A4/US Letter paper. The
printed text area must not exceed 165x230mm (6.5x9 inches), and should
be centred horizontally and vertically on the page. Omit name and
affiliation, and obvious self reference from the version for
review. Papers should include a roughly 100-200 word abstract at the
beginning.


Abstracts. Abstracts should be one A4 page in 10pt or larger type and
include a title. Omit name and affiliation, and obvious self
reference. A second page may be used for data, c-/f- and related
structures, and references.


Papers/abstracts may be submitted by email or by regular mail (or by
both means as a safety measure). Email submission is preferred.


Regular Mail

Include:

- Five copies of the abstract/paper.

- A card or cover sheet with the paper title, name(s) of the
author(s), affiliation, address, phone/fax number, e-mail address, and
whether the author(s) are students.


Email.


Include the paper title, name(s) of the author(s), address, phone/fax
number, email address, and whether the author(s) are students in the
body of your email message. Include or preferably attach your paper
as either a plain ASCII text, PDF, HTML, or postscript file. Postscript
files require special care to avoid problems: make sure the system is
set to include all fonts or at least all but the standard 13; if using
a recent version of Word, make sure you click the printer Properties
button and then the Postscript tab, and there choose Optimize for
Portability; on all platforms make sure the system is not asking for a
particular paper size or other device-specific configuration. It is
your responsibility to send us a file that us and our reviewers can
print. You can often test this by trying to look at the file in a
previewer.


All papers/abstracts will be reviewed by at least two people.
Papers will appear in the proceedings which will be published online
by CSLI Publications. Selected papers may also appear in a printed
volume published by CSLI Publications.

 PRE-CONFERENCE HIKE AND PICNIC:

Following recent LFG tradition, there will be a pre-conference social
event on Tuesday July 18. This will involve a hike and picnic lunch in
Tilden Park, a beautiful area not too far from the Berkeley campus. Other
activities apart from hiking are also available (e.g. botanical garden,
swimming in the lake) see http://www.ebparks.org/parks/tilden.htm for
further details, and http://www.ebparks.org/parks/wildcat.htm for
information about longer hikes nearby. Transportation from Berkeley and a 
picnic lunch will be arranged for a modest fee. This event is not restricted 
to the LFG community, but is open to anyone attending the Berkeley Formal 
Grammar conference. Please contact Mary Dalrymple (dalrympleparc.xerox.com)
as soon as possible if you are interested in attending.


ALL OTHER INFORMATION including accommodation and registration details

will be included in a subsequent call for papers.
