 Fourth International Workshop on

 COMPUTATIONAL SEMANTICS

 (IWCS-4)

 January 10-12, 2001, Tilburg, The Netherlands

 -------------

 Sponsored by SIGSEM, 
 the ACL Special Interest Group on Computational Semantics

 -------------

 FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

The Computational Linguistics and Artificial Intelligence Unit at
Tilburg University will host the Fourth International Workshop on
Computational Semantics (IWCS-4), that will take place from 10-12
January 2001. The aim of the workshop is to bring together
researchers interested in any aspects of the computation of
meaning in natural language or in language-based multimedia
objects.


 TOPICS OF INTEREST

Topics of interest for the workshop will be computational aspects
of formal semantic theories as well as theoretical issues in
building natural language understanding systems, including systens
where language is used in a multimedia setting. Papers are invited
in areas which include, but are not limited to, the following
specific topics:

 * working with underspecified representations of meaning
 * modelling and using context for interpretation
 * the relations between semantics and pragmatics
 * dynamic interpretation in text and dialogue
 * interpretation and games
 * computational lexical semantics
 * interpretation and inference
 * meaning in multimedia objects
 * interpretation and optimality
 * speech acts and interpretation
 * incrementality and monotonicity in interpretation
 * knowledge representation and reasoning in meaning computation


 SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Authors are asked to submit an original paper of maximally 5000
words by September 15, 2000, by email in Postscript form. All
submitted papers that are received in time will be refereed by the
programme committee and may be accepted for full presentation at
the workshop and publication in the proceedings, or for a
short/poster presentation and publication of a 2-page abstract. We
also aim at publishing a selection of accepted papers in book
form. Accepted papers should be submitted in final form in LaTeX;
guidelines for the preparation of manuscripts will soon be
available at the IWCS web pages:

 http://pi0239.kub.nl/~sigsem/iwcs4.html

For initial submission email a Postscript version of the paper to:
Computational.Semanticskub.nl by September 15, 2000.
