 CALL FOR PAPERS - JOURNAL T.A.L.
 *********************************

 DEADLINE EXTENDED : JULY 1 1999

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-semantics 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.
*******************************************

DATE LIMITE ETENDUE: 1er JUILLET 1999

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-s\233mantique \224 partir d'arbres de d\233pendance.

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


* FORMAT DES ARTICLES
