 Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)
 Trondheim, Norway

		 3-5 August 2001

The 8th International Conference on HPSG will take place in Norway
on 3-5 August 2001, hosted by the Norwegian University of Science 
and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim. The conference will be immediately 
succeeded by a one week summer school on constraint based grammar, 
also in Trondheim.

Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address linguistic, 
foundational, or computational issues relating to the framework of 
Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar. 


 The conference will include a special session on SEMANTICS in HPSG.
 This session will feature a number of invited speakers as well as 
 submitted papers. 


 We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for presentations, 
 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
 - specification of whether the abstract is intended for the
 semantics session or for the general session

 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.

 Presentations of accepted abstracts can take max. 30 minutes 
 (+ 10 minutes discussion).

From: Vera Fluhr <>
Subject: DIALOGUE'2001 International Workshop in Moscow

International workshop


May 30 - June 4, 2001


The DIALOGUE Workshop is a major annual national event which brings
together researchers and experts (linguists, computer and cognitive
scientists, psychologists, researchers in the artificial intelligence
and speech processing, etc.) from the former USSR as well as other
countries for a dialogue in a broad spectrum of fields concerning
human languages computational models and technologies.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) :

- theoretical and computational linguistics
- syntax, semantics, pragmatics and their interaction
- natural language processing
- knowledge representation and processing
- text, dialogue and speech act in the computational framework
- speech understanding and synthesis
- machine translation
- corpus linguistics
- natural language processing and Internet
- semantic modeling of full-text documents

The DIALOGUE Workshop is traditionally held at a pleasant and
comfortable site near Moscow, during 6 days at the very end of May and
beginning of June. The six previous annual DIALOGUE workshops were
very successful, significantly increasing (more than twice) the number
of participants and the scope of research interests. The two-volume
Proceedings of the DIALOGUE' 2000 is available at the . It consists of 120 papers reflecting the wide
scope of theoretical works as well as R & D and commercial projects.

As always, the program of DIALOGUE'2001 will include research and 
experience presentations, posters, demonstrations, panel sessions,
round tables and time for discussion. In view of main topics of the
Workshop, research presentations may also have a substantial
demonstrative component. English-to-Russian and Russian-to-English
interpretation of talks will be organised.
