Subject: European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2002)


The 15th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence ECAI 2002 
will be organized in Lyon (France), July 21-26, 2002. 

Full information at ECAI 2002 website: 

The deadline for tutorial proposal at ECAI 2002 is now approaching. 
The tutorials will be held on 21-22 July 2002, immediately prior to 
the start of the main conference. 


1 Nov 2001 Deadline for proposals 
1 Dec 2001 Notification of acceptance 
15 Dec 2001 Deadline for tutorial summaries 
5 Jan 2002 Publication of ECAI-2002 tutorial programme 
25 May 2002 Camera-ready tutorial notes 

21-22 Jul 2002 Tutorials at ECAI-2002 

We invite proposals for four-hour or full day tutorials on topics 
relating to theoretical and applied AI. The aim is to offer 
conference delegates both tutorials on up-to-date AI technologies, 
and case study tutorials on the application of the AI technologies 
to real-world problems. 

A list of suggested topics is given below: 

artificial life knowledge representation 
automated deduction language technology 
case-based reasoning logic programming 
constraint processing machine learning 
data, text and web mining model-based reasoning 
entertainment and arts ontological engineering 
intelligent agents planning and scheduling 
intelligent interfaces probabilistic reasoning 
knowledge discovery and uncertainty 
knowledge engineering qualitative modelling 
knowledge management and simulation 
semantic web temporal and spatial reasoning 

Tutorials can play a major role in educating the AI community. 
It might concern emerging pportunities, technologies and problem 
areas: topics we did not imagine to mention are thus welcome. It can 
equally concern core methods from other disciplines that promise a 
strong synergy with AI methods, e.g., cognitive psychology, biology,

Subject: _Snippets_ Syntax-Semantics newsletter

This is a reminder that the deadline for submissions to

 Issue 5 of the syntax-semantics newsletter _Snippets_ is

Relevant details from the _Snippets_ editorial statement are excerpted below.

Issues 1-5 of _Snippets_ are accessible at the web site

and hard copies are available to those institutions that request them.

 >From the SNIPPETS Editorial Statement:

The aim of _Snippets_ is to publish specific remarks that motivate
research or that make theoretical points germane to current work. The
ideal contribution is the ideal footnote: a side remark that taken on
its own is not worth lengthy development but that needs to be said.


We will publish notes that contribute to the study of _syntax and
semantics in generative grammar_. The notes are to be brief,
self-contained and explicit. They may do any of the following

a. point out an empirical phenomenon that goes against accepted
generalizations or that shows that some aspect of a theory is
b. point out unnoticed minimal pairs that fall outside the scope
of any existing theory;
c. point out an empirical phenomenon that confirms the
predictions of a theory in an area where the theory has not
been tested;
d. explicitly describe technical inconsistencies in a theory or
in a set of frequently adopted assumptions;
e. explicitly describe unnoticed assumptions that underlie a
theory or assumptions that a theory needs to be supplemented
with in order to make desired predictions;
f. propose an idea for a pilot experiment in language acquisition
or language processing that directly bears on theoretical
g. call attention to little-known or forgotten literature in
which issues of immediate relevance are discussed.


We will solicit submissions issue by issue. A new submission
deadline will be announced for each issue, and the submissions that
we receive we will consider only for that issue. The submissions
that we accept will be printed in the upcoming issue; none will be
scheduled for a later issue.

Submissions are to be a _maximum_ of 500 words (including examples),
with an additional half page allowed for diagrams, tables and
references. Given that we envision the submissions themselves as
footnotes, _the submissions may not contain footnotes of their own_.
The ideal submission is one paragraph; a submission of five lines is
perfectly acceptable. _We will not consider abstracts_.

We will accept electronic submissions at the address

Paper submissions should be sent to

Caterina Donati
Facolta' di Lingue
Universita' di Urbino
Piazza Rinascimento 7
61029 Urbino

We strongly encourage electronic submissions. Electronic
submissions may take the form of the text of an e-mail message, or
an attached file. The attached file should be a simple text file,
a Word file (Mac or Windows), or a Rich Text Format (RTF) file.

All submissions must state the name and affiliation of the
author(s), and a (postal or electronic) return
