 International Workshop
 on Tree Adjoining Grammars and Related Formalisms
 May 25 - 27, 2000
 Jussieu, Paris, France



(version fran�aise infra)

The fifth workshop on tree-adjoining grammars and related frameworks
(hence the + after TAG) will be held at the University of Paris 7,
from May 25 to May 27 2000, sponsored by ATALA (Association pour le
Traitement Automatique des Langues).

Previous workshops were held at Dagstuhl (1990), UPenn (1992),
Univ. Paris 7 (1994) and UPenn (1998).

Original submissions on all aspects of TAGs (linguistic, mathematical,
computational, and applicational) are invited, as well as those
relating TAGs to other frameworks, lexicalized (dependency grammars,
categorial grammars...), tree-based (DTG, TFG, GB...) or feature-based
(LFG, HPSG...).

As in the past, there will be some invited talks on other grammar
formalisms which have interesting relationships to TAGs.

 You can submit papers for three kinds of presentations: long talks
(25 minutes + 5 min for discussion), short talks (10 min + 5) and/or
tool demonstrations.

 Please note that an author (or a given set of co-authors) should
not submit more than one paper.

 Submissions will be anonymous, and should therefore not include the
author's name, nor any self-reference.
 Abstracts should be no longer than 4 pages. 2 hardcopies should be
sent by surface mail to:
 UFRL, Universit� Paris 7
 TALaNa, case 7003
 2, place Jussieu
 F-75251 Paris cedex 05
 A separate identification page (with the following information :
title of the paper, author's name, affiliation, postal address, email
address, fax and telephone number) should also be included. Please
also indicate if you submitted your abstract to other conferences.
 Also a postcript file should be sent to
Please indicate "tag+5 submission" in the subject field.

Important : all postcript files MUST be in an A4 format
 Proceedings including extended versions of accepted abstracts will
be available at the workshop.

Languages of the workshop: English and French

 If you do not want to submit an abstract, but would like to attend,
we would appreciate if you could send a message. If you would like
to present a demo, please let us know as soon as possible, including
information about required hardware and software.


 Deadline for submissions: January 22
 Notification of acceptance: March 3
 Deadline for camera-ready extended abstract: April 15
 Workshop Dates: May 25 to May 27

cat�gorielles, DTG, TFG, GB, LFG, HPSG, etc.).

 Comme par le pass�, les conf�renciers invit�s pr�senteront des
travaux sur d'autres formalismes dont la relation avec TAG semble
