Subject: Final CfP: Methods for Modalities (M4M)

FINAL CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

METHODS FOR MODALITIES 1 (M4M)


Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
University of Amsterdam 
May 6-7, 1999
http://www.illc.uva.nl/~mdr/M4M/

DEADLINE: March 15, 1999

THEME
The workshop `Methods for Modalities' (M4M) aims to bring together 
researchers interested in developing proof tools and decision methods for 
modal logic broadly conceived, including description logic, feature logic, 
temporal logic.

SPECIAL FEATURES
To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will be centered 
around a number of long presentations by leading researchers; these 
presentations will provide both the background and inside information in a 
number of key areas. To complement these, we are inviting submissions of 
short, focussed presentations aimed at highlighting new developments, and 
submissions of system demonstrations.

SUBMISSIONS
We invite two kinds of submissions: research papers on proof tools and 
decision methods for modal logic as well as their applications; and system 
descriptions. Research papers need not be original; they can be up to 10 
A4 size pages, and system descriptions can be up to 4 A4 size pages. 
System descriptions should focus on actual implementations, explaining 
system architecture issues and specific implementation techniques. Every 
system description should be accompanied by a system demo at M4M. The 
primary means of submission will be electronic, in PostScript format. 
Submissions should be sent to m4mwins.uva.nl.

PROGRAM
The following people have agreed to give long presentations:
 * David Basin (Verification Based on Monadic Logic)
 * Patrick Blackburn (Labeled Deduction and Tableaux)
 * Ian Horrocks (Tableaux Implementations)
 * Hans de Nivelle (Resolution Implementations)
 * Renate Schmidt (Resolution-Based Methods)
 * Roberto Sebastiani (Testing)
In addition, there will be demonstration sessions, and short, 30 minute, 
contributed presentations.

PROGRAM COMMITTEE
The program committee for M4M consists of Carlos Areces (Amsterdam), Enrico 
Franconi (Manchester), Rajeev Gore (Canberra), Hans de Nivelle 
(Amsterdam/Saarbruecken), Hans Juergen Ohlbach (London), Maarten de Rijke 
(Amsterdam), Holger Schlingloff (Bremen).

IMPORTANT DATES
 * Deadline for submissions: March 15, 1999
 * Notification: April 5, 1999
 * Workshop dates: May 6-7, 1999

 SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

 NLPRS-99
 5th Natural Language Processing Pacific Rim Symposium

 Beijing, China
 November 5-7, 1999

 "Closing the Millennium"
 -|-------------------------------------|-

NLPRS has contributed to the promotion and circulation of research
efforts in Computational Linguistics and related subjects, primarily
among scholars in the Pacific Rim area. As the NLPRS culminating
a millennium, NLPRS-99 would like to invite more scholars than ever
before, including those beyond the Pacific boundaries, covering
topics of all related areas, in order to create a memorable occasion
before the next century. The papers must be original and address
unpublished work on all aspects of Computational Linguistics.


TOPICS

The conference papers may represent technical works in all areas of
computational linguistics. The following categories are illustrative only.
Do not hesitate to send your papers even if you think that the area of your
paper is not exactly covered by the categories below.

 General Categories
 morphology
 syntax
 discourse
 generation
 anaphora resolution
 lexical semantics
 machine translation
 dialogue
 bilingual alignment
 statistical parsing

 Linguistic Data
 lexical acquisition
 corpus analysis

 Applications
 applied NLP systems
 parallel implementations

 Thematic topics
 millennium view/experiences from large projects
 internet

THEMATIC SESSION and PANEL DISCUSSION :
THE MILLENNIUM: FIFTY YEARS OF COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS

NLPRS is considering organizing a millennium session and a panel
discussion on the issues and thoughts of what we have achieved and
what we may achieve over the fifty years of Computational Linguistics.
For instance, historical landmarks with positive influence on the
solutions of linguistic issues may need to be reinterpreted. What
would be the implication of achievements so far? On this topic,
NLPRS would like to encourage the submission of related papers.
In particular, government officials and scholars who created,
funded, and managed large-scale NLP projects are strongly urged
to join this panel discussion. The panel meeting will provide a
timely occasion to discuss successes and failures of large projects.

Those who wish to join the panel discussion on the topics stated
above are kindly requested to compile an email application with
a brief note of the opinion statement to the following address.

THEMATIC SESSION :
LANGUAGE PROCESSING AND THE INTERNET

One of the key terms opening the next century will be the Internet.
Linguistic ideas may need to be recast into internet primitives.
NLPRS99 plans to organize a session devoted to related themes;
papers addressing the following themes are welcome:

 - internet applications of NLP systems:
 computational models as well as case studies
 - general topics on group works:
 linguistic or non linguistic algorithms that foster group
 communications
