Subject: Reference and Coherence in Discourse

			CALL FOR PAPERS

International workshop on Reference and Coherence in discourse; Formal,
Functional and Cognitive approaches

Utrecht, The Netherlands, January 10-12, 2001

The Utrecht institute for Linguistics UiL OTS hosts an international
workshop on 'Reference and Coherence in discourse; Formal, Functional and
Cognitive approaches', January 10-12, 20001. The workshop is co-funded by
the Dutch Organization of Scientific research NWO. The aim of the workshop
is to bring insights from linguistic analysis, cognitive modeling and
computational generation/interpretation together to develop a framework for
reference to individuals which integrates formal, computational, functional
and cognitive approaches.

			INVITED SPEAKERS

. Mira Ariel, Tel-Aviv University, Israel / UC Santa Barbara (Ca, V.S.)
. Kees van Deemter, Univ. of Brighton (U.K.)
. Catherine Emmott, University of Glasgow / Utrecht Institute for
Linguistics OTS
. Jerry Hobbs, SRI International, Menlo Park (Ca, V.S.)
. Ellen Prince, Upenn, Philadelphia (PA, V.S.)
. Francis Corblin, Paris IV (Sorbonne), Parijs

We invite researchers in the field of reference and coherence to submit
papers on the theme identified above. Here is a non-exhaustive list of
topics we intend to discuss at the workshop:

�How do natural language expressions refer to individuals?
�What are the syntactic, semantic and pragmatic constraints on reference to
individuals, and how do we model them in cognitive/linguistic/computational
theory?
�How do these constraints, and other linguistic indicators like connectives
and coherence relations help the language user to build a coherent
representation of discourse?
�How do readers and listeners actually make use of reference to individuals
during language processing and generation?
