Message 1: Chicago Linguistic Society/Second Call

Date: Wed, 13 Jan 1999 01:46:08 -0600
From: Aaron Griffith <a-griffithuchicago.edu>
Subject: Chicago Linguistic Society/Second Call

The second call for papers:
	The 35th Regional Meeting of the Chicago Linguistic Society

April 22-24, 1999
University of Chicago


Main Session:
We invite original, unpublished work on any topic of general linguistic
interest.

Invited Speakers:
	Beth Levin (Northwestern University)
	Paul Smolensky (Johns Hopkins University)

Panels:
We invite original, unpublished work which addresses one of the panel
topics below.

Language, Identity, and the Other
Thursday, April 22

Language serves as a means to unite as well as to exclude groups or
individuals. This panel will explore the linguistic mechanisms by which
this is accomplished in different speech communities.

Invited Speakers:
	Robert Greenberg (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill)
	Michael Silverstein (University of Chicago)

In conjunction with the University of Chicago workshop on theory and data
	in speech research:
ChiPhon 99 New Syntheses:
	Multi-Disciplinary Approaches to Basic Units of Speech
Friday, April 23

This panel seeks to synthesize findings from linguistics and other fields
which investigate linguistic behavior, to determine whether these can be
used as evidence for a unified theory of basic units of speech processing.

Invited Speakers:
	John Ohala (University of California, Berkeley)
	Joseph Perkell (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

Theory and Linguistic Diversity
Saturday, April 24

Approximately five thousand languages are spoken throughout the world
today. This panel seeks to explore the ways in which linguistic theories
attempt to account for such variety.

Invited Speakers:
	Mark Baker (McGill University)
	Joan Bresnan (Stanford University)
	R.M.W. Dixon (Australian National University)


Please submit ten copies of a one-page 500 word anonymous abstract for a
twenty minute paper (optionally one additional page for data and/or
references may be appended), along with a 3 by 5 card with:
	1 your name
	2 affiliation
	3 address, phone number, and e-mail address
	4 title of the paper
	5 an indication for which panel or which particular subdivision of
	 the main session (eg: phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics,
	 historical linguistics, etc.) the paper is intended.
The abstract should be as specific as possible and it should clearly
indicate the data covered, outline the arguments presented, and include
any broader implications of the work. An individual may present at most
one single and one co-authored paper. Authors must submit a camera-ready
copy of the paper at the time of the conference in order to be considered
for publication. Only a selection of papers presented at CLS 35 will be
published.

This years deadline for receipt of abstracts is February 1, 1999. Send
abstracts to:
	Chicago Linguistic Society
	1010 East 59th St.
	Chicago, IL 60637
	773.702.8529
Information on e-mail submission and additional guidelines for abstracts
may be obtained by visiting our website at

above address, or by e-mailing us at clsdiderot.uchicago.edu.

 JOURNAL T.A.L.

 CALL FOR PAPERS

The Journal "Traitement Automatique des Langues" (T.A.L.) will publish a
special issue on the following theme :

 DEPENDENCY GRAMMARS

This special issue will be devoted to the various aspects of natural
language processing using dependency grammars. That concerns all automatic
systems or NLP-oriented linguistic models directly using dependency trees
as structure of representation, as well as those using equivalent notions
such as syntactic heads or syntactic functions.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- presentation of automatic systems (parsing, generation, translation,
disambiguation, correction, speech recognition, teaching ...) based on
dependencies;
- presentation of electronic resources (dictionaries, annotated corpora,
grammars) based on dependencies;
- presentation of algorithms for dependency grammars;
- presentation of NLP-oriented linguistic models based on dependencies;
- evaluation of automatic systems based on dependencies and comparison with
other systems;
- study of the syntax-semantic interface from a dependency trees point of view.

Papers submitted may focus on a particular linguistic phenomenon provided that
they throw a light on or entail a reflection about the use of syntactic
dependencies in natural language processing.

APPEL A COMMUNICATIONS POUR LA REVUE T.A.L.
*******************************************

Un prochain numero de la revue "Traitement Automatique des Langues" (T.A.L)
sera consacre au theme suivant :

 GRAMMAIRES DE DEPENDANCE

Ce numero special portera sur les differents aspects du traitement
automatique des langues par des grammaires de dependance. Cela concerne
tous les systemes automatiques ou modeles formels utilisant directement des
arbres de dependance comme structure de representation syntaxique, ainsi
que ceux utilisant des notions connexes comme la notion de tete syntaxique
ou celle de fonction syntaxique.

Voici une liste non limitatives de sujets sur lesquels des articles peuvent
etre soumis:

- presentation de systemes automatiques (analyse, generation, traduction,
desambiguisation, correction, reconnaissance de la parole, eao, ...) bases
les dependances;
- presentation de ressources electroniques (dictionnaires, corpus annotes,
grammaires) bases sur les dependances;
- presentation d'algorithmes pour les grammaires de dependance;
- presentation de modeles linguistiques orientes vers le TAL et bases sur
les dependances;
- evaluation de systemes bases sur les dependances ou comparaison avec
d'autres systemes;
- etude de l'interface syntaxe-smantique partir d'arbres de dpendance.

Les etudes peuvent porter sur un phenomene linguistique particulier dans la
mesure o elles donnent un eclairage particulier ou entraine une reflexion
plus generale sur l'utilisation des dependances syntaxiques en traitement
automatique de la langue.
