The conference will consist of both plenary sessions and contributory
sessions, focusing on theory, implementation and applications of
computational intelligence techniques to modelling, control and
automation. For contributory sessions, draft papers (4 pages or more)
are being solicited. Several well-known keynote speakers will address
the conference.

Message 2: Prosody in Processing

Date: Tue, 16 Jan 2001 11:10:02 +0100
From: Jocelyn Cohan <jocelyn.cohanlet.uu.nl>
Subject: Prosody in Processing

Call for Posters: Prosody in Processing
UiL-OTS, Universiteit Utrecht

The Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS at Utrecht University will host an
international workshop entitled "Prosody in Processing" (PiP) on 5-6 July
2001. The workshop will bring together researchers interested in issues
relevant to the role of prosody in the human language faculty. 

The workshop will include space for a limited number of posters. The
organising committee is thus seeking poster abstracts that address topics
within the workshop theme. These might include, for example, posters that
treat: potential roles of prosody in language production, language
understanding or language acquisition; the relationship of prosody to
syntax or semantics; interaction between prosody and other components of
language; or the role of prosody within the architecture of the language
faculty. 

Papers based on the posters presented at the workshop will be eligible for
inclusion in the workshop proceedings. The workshop will also include
papers given by invited speakers, in sessions entitled "Prosody and
modularity," "Prosody and syntax," "Prosody and interpretation," and
"Prosody and acquisition." The following invited speakers have confirmed
their contributions: Anne Christophe (Lab de Sci Cognitives et
Psycholinguistique); Anne Cutler (Max Planck Institute-Nijmegen); Janet
Dean Fodor (CUNY); Lyn Frazier (UMass-Amherst); Carlos Gussenhoven
(Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen); Marina Nespor (U di Ferrara); Ardi
Roelofs (Max Planck Institute-Nijmegen); Lisa Selkirk (UMass-Amherst);
Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel (MIT); Hubert Truckenbrodt (MIT/Rutgers);
Jocelyn Cohan (UiL-OTS); Herman Hendriks (UiL-OTS) and Frank Wijnen
(UiL-OTS). 

More information about the workshop is available at the website:
	http://www-uilots.let.uu.nl/conferences/pip/

Guidelines for submission:

Researchers wishing to present a poster are encouraged to provide anonymous
one-page abstracts (font no smaller than 10 pt), with an extra page for
examples or references as needed. The deadline for submissions is 1
February 2001. Authors of accepted abstracts may be asked to submit
shorter versions for inclusion in the programme guide. 

Electronic submissions may be sent within the body of an e-mail message or
as an e-mail attachment (Word, text or RTF format) to piplet.uu.nl.
E-mail messages should also include the title of the proposed poster, the
names of authors and their affiliations, and postal and e-mail address for
the first author. 

Authors wishing to submit a proposal via postal mail are asked to send four
copies of the abstract, together with a cover page reporting the title of
the proposed poster, the names of authors and their affiliations, and a
postal address and e-mail or telephone number for the first author. Postal
submissions may be sent to:
