Subject: Summer School in Forensic Linguistics

Dear Colleagues

This is just a final call for participants for
the Summer School in Forensic Linguistic
Analysis, to be hosted by the University of
Birmingham, UK, Sept 14th-18th 2001. We are
offering a flexible package of options, from 1-5
days, including courses in forensic linguistics,
forensic phonetics, forensic interpreting and
forensic handwriting analysis. 

There are still a limited number of spaces
available on the summer school. Further
information may be obtained from the Director, Dr
Janet Cotterill, on email or
or by fax on +44 (0) 2920 874242.

Best Wishes,

Subject: LLL'01: Deadline Reminder

The deadline for submission to the Work-in-Progress Session
of the 3rd Learning Language in Logic (LLL) Workshop is coming soon:
24 June 2001. See the CFP below for details. 

On the joint session between ILP and LLL, Dan Roth, University of
Illinois, will give a plenary talk.

Best regards
Lubos Popelinsky and Miloslav Nepil


 8th - 9th September 2001, Strasbourg
 Co-located with ILP 2001



 Please submit by sending electronically to
 a full paper (PS or PDF format) up to 12 pages in LNCS/LNAI
 Springer style.

 Paper submission deadline: June, 24
 Notification of acceptance: July, 9
 Final version due: July, 27

 Works in progress will be published in working notes (Technical 
 Report of FI MU Brno).


 Our purpose is to provide a forum for discussion on all aspects
 of learning language in logic.
 It is the follow-up of the previous LLL workshops held in 1999
 in Bled, Slovenia, and in 2000 in Lisboa, Portugal.

 The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers who
 are working on learning from text, while emphasizing the
 logic-based learning techniques and algorithms.

 We strongly encourage contributions concerning semantic analysis
 of natural languages, describing logic-based learning techniques
 alternative to ILP, employing active learning or solving tasks 
 for other languages than English.

 These techniques include but are not limited to: 

 - Combinations of approaches and multi-strategy learning 
 - Instance-based and clustering approaches in relational 
 - Scalability issues (applying logic-based methods to large 
 data sets) 
 - Logical approaches to statistical NLP 
 - Higher-order logic for LLL 
 - Handling very complex terms 
 - Collaborative and interactive learning 

 - Shallow parsing 
 - Grammar learning 
 - Learning subcategorisation frames 
 - Part-of-speech tagging 
 - Morphosyntactic tagging 
 - Morphological analysis 
 - Information indexing, filtering, retrieval, extraction 
 - Text classification methods 
 - Question answering 
 - Learning ontologies, thesauri and lexicon 
 - Extracting predicate-argument structure
