 International Workshop
 on Tree Adjoining Grammars and Related Formalisms
 May 25 - 27, 2000
 Jussieu, Paris, France


 EXTENDED DEADLINE : January 31th 2000

(version fran�aise infra)

 The fifth workshop on tree-adjoining grammars and related
frameworks (hence the + after TAG) will be held at the University of
Paris 7, from May 25 to May 27 2000, sponsored by ATALA (Association
pour le Traitement Automatique des Langues).

 Previous workshops were held at Dagstuhl (1990), UPenn (1992),
Univ. Paris 7 (1994) and UPenn (1998).

 Original submissions on all aspects of TAGs (linguistic,
mathematical, computational, and applicational) are invited, as well
as those relating TAGs to other frameworks, lexicalized (dependency
grammars, categorial grammars...), tree-based (DTG, TFG, GB...) or
feature-based (LFG, HPSG...).

 As in the past, there will be some invited talks on other grammar
formalisms which have interesting relationships to TAGs.

 You can submit papers for three kinds of presentations: long talks
(25 minutes + 5 min for discussion), short talks (10 min + 5) and/or
tool demonstrations.

 Please note that an author (or a given set of co-authors) should
not submit more than one paper.

 Submissions will be anonymous, and should therefore not include the
author's name, nor any self-reference.
 Abstracts should be no longer than 4 pages. 2 hardcopies should be
sent by surface mail to:
 UFRL, Universit� Paris 7
 TALaNa, case 7003
 2, place Jussieu
 F-75251 Paris cedex 05
 A separate identification page (with the following information :
title of the paper, author's name, affiliation, postal address, email
address, fax and telephone number) should also be included. Please
also indicate if you submitted your abstract to other conferences.
 Also a postcript file should be sent to
Please indicate "tag+5 submission" in the subject field.

Important : all postcript files MUST be in an A4 format
 Proceedings including extended versions of accepted abstracts will
be available at the workshop.

Languages of the workshop: English and French

 If you do not want to submit an abstract, but would like to attend,
we would appreciate if you could send a message. If you would like
to present a demo, please let us know as soon as possible, including
information about required hardware and software.


 Extended deadline for submissions: January 31
 Notification of acceptance: March 3
 Deadline for camera-ready extended abstract: April 15
 Workshop Dates: May 25 to May 27



 La cinqui�me conf�rence sur les grammaires d'arbres adjoints (TAG) et

autres formalismes proches (d'o� le +) aura lieu � l'Universit� Paris
7 du 25 au 27 mai 2000 sous l'�gide de l'ATALA (Association pour le
Traitement Automatique des Langues).

 Les conf�rences pr�c�dentes se sont tenus � Dagstuhl (1990), UPenn
(1992), Univ. Paris 7 (1994) et UPenn (1998).

 Les communications pourront porter sur tous les th�mes ayant
trait aux grammaires d'arbres adjoints (linguistique, math�matique,
informatique et applications) aussi bien que sur leur relations avec
d'autres th�ories linguistiques (grammaires de d�pendance, grammaires
cat�gorielles, DTG, TFG, GB, LFG, HPSG, etc.).

 Comme par le pass�, les conf�renciers invit�s pr�senteront des
travaux sur d'autres formalismes dont la relation avec TAG semble


 Trois types de communications seront propos�s : longues (25min. + questions), courtes (10min. + questions) et
d�monstrations sur machine.

 Notez que chaque auteur et groupe d'auteurs ne doivent soumettre
qu'un seul r�sum�.

 Les r�sum�s anonymes de 4 pages au maximum seront envoy�s en deux
exemplaires par la poste avant le 31 janvier 2000 � l'adresse suivante :

Message 2: Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar - HPSG-2000

Date: Tue, 18 Jan 2000 11:47:09 -0800
From: Dan Flickinger <danfcsli.Stanford.EDU>
Subject: Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar - HPSG-2000


		 7th International Conference on
		 Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar
		 University of California, Berkeley

			 22-23 July 2000

The 7th International Conference on Head-driven Phrase Structure
Grammar will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 22-23, 2000, as part
of the Berkeley Formal Grammar Conference 2000 at the University of
California, Berkeley, The event will consist of LFG2000 (July 19-20),
HPSG-2000 (July 22-23), and a common day of workshops on July 21,
entitled "Lexical and Constructional Explanations in Constraint-Based
Grammar", offering a valuable opportunity for interaction among
researchers of these two frameworks.

Abstracts for HPSG-2000 are solicited for 20-minute presentations
(followed by 10 minutes of discussion) which address linguistic,
foundational, or computational issues relating to the framework of
Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar. Authors are particularly
encouraged to submit papers which will be accessible to researchers
and students working in both HPSG and LFG.


 We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for 20-minute papers, to consist 
 of two parts

 1) a separate information page in plain text format, containing 
 - author name(s)
 - affiliation(s) 
 - e-mail and postal address(es) 
 - title of paper

 2) an extended abstract of not more than 5 (five) pages, including all
 figures and references. Abstracts may be either in plain ASCII or in 
 (unix-compatible encoded) PostScript, PDF, or DVI format.

 Abstracts should be sent to

 All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers,
 so authors are asked to avoid self-references in the abstracts.

 Pending final approval by the publisher, a selected number of papers will be 
 published as a volume in the CSLI series "Studies in Constraint-Based 
 Lexicalism". There will be a separate round of submission and reviewing for 
 this volume after the conference.
