*****************************************************************

*****************************************************************

- -------------------------- HISTORY ----------------------------

The LACL series of conferences aims at providing a forum for the
presentation and discussion of current research in all the formal
and logical aspects of computational linguistics. It started as a 
workshop held in Nancy (France), in 1995. Due to its success, it 
was turned, the next year, into a international conference. 
LACL'96 and '97 have both been held in Nancy (France). LACL'98 has 
been held in Grenoble (France). Selected papers from LACL'95 appear 
in a special issue of Journal of Logic Language and Information, 
7(4), 1998. The proceedings of LACL'96 and 97 appear as volumes 
1328 and 1582 of Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. The 
proceedings of LACL'98 are in press with the same series.


- --------------------------- SCOPE -----------------------------

Typical topics include, but are not limited to:

 Categorial grammars, Categorial type logics, Compositionality, 
 Discourse representation theory, Dynamics, Feature Logics, 
 Formal language theory, Game-theoretical semantics, Grammatical 
 inference, Learning theory, Linear logical frameworks, Minimalism, 
 Modal logics, Montague semantics, Parsing as deduction, Proof-
 theoretic approaches, Situation semantics and situation theory,
 Type-theoretic approaches.


- --------------------- SUBMISSION GUIDELINES --------------------

Authors are invited to submit a full paper not exceeding 15 standard 
A4 or US quarto pages. The paper should allow the Programme 
Committee to assess the merits of the work. In particular, 
references and comparisons with related work should be included. 
Submission of material already published or submitted to other
conferences with published proceedings is not allowed.

Electronic submission is highly recommended. A postscript version

 FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

 DEADLINE for submission is 1 February 2001

*****************************************************************


 NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING AND CORPUS LINGUISTICS
 New corpora, new practices and new concepts

 Special issue of the french journal TAL edited by
 Beatrice Daille (IRIN, Nantes) and Laurent Romary (LORIA, Nancy) 

***************************************************************** 

SCOPE

Because of its corpus based, empirical approach and of its post-hoc
formalisation, Corpus linguistics has often been viewed as the
antithesis to computational linguistics. 
Over the years, corpus linguistics has developed its own tools and
methods for identifying these linguistic constructs which are primary
to many linguistic applications such as language learning and
translation. 

Today the development of the Internet, the availability in electronic
format of many publications and documentations as well as the
increased power of computational tools promotes a renewed use of
corpora at all levels of linguistics theorising.

In this context, and going beyond a simple listing of technical
results, it seems important to recap the methodological and conceptual
progresses made in the field of corpus linguistics and to precisely
identify the role NLP played in these progresses.

TOPICS (NOT LIMITATIVE)

In this special issue, we wish to publish either innovative papers or
synthesis and prospective articles bearing on the following topics:

- Corpora and Linguistic Theorising: Which new theories arose or is
 arising from corpus work? How do these formal linguistic theories
 account for the linguistic constructs found in corpora e.g.,
 collocations, idioms etc?
- Corpus building: criteria, selection constraints and organisation
 for which linguistic study? How can we measure the representativity
 of a corpus with respect to a given linguistic construct?
- Methods and techniques: Which methods and techniques can we use for
 analysis (concordences, statistics, annotations)?
- Domains and applications of corpus linguistics: field linguistics,
 teaching, learning of stochastical models, semantic information
 retrieval, extraction of mono- or multi-lingual lexica, discourse
 analysis, translation.
- Infrastructure, tools and availability: Which representation
 standards? What for? Platforms providing the access to big
 corpora. Analysis tools.


FORMAT

Authors are strongly encouraged to use LaTeX2e and the HERMES 
style files http://www.editions-hermes.fr/ rubrique Auteurs


LANGUAGE

Articles can be written in French or in English. English written
articles are only accepted from non-french speaking authors.

DEADLINES

The deadline for submission is 1 February 2001. 

The articles will be referreed by a member of the TAL editorial
board and two members of the editorial committee specifically created
by the editors for this special issue. The decision of the editorial
boards will be communicated to the authors before 1 April 2001.

The final version of the accepted papers is due on 1 May for a
publication scheduled for Autumn 2001.

SUBMISSIONS

The articles must be submitted either electronically to
Isabelle.Blanchardloria.fr or as hardcopy (three copies) to:

JOURNAL T.A.L. http://www.atala.org/tal/

The international journal Traitement Automatique des Langues (TAL) has
been published since 1969 by the french Association pour le traitement
automatique des langues (ATALA) with the support of the Centre
National pour la recherche scientifique (CNRS). The journal TAL covers
all fields of computational linguistics and its aim is to provide mainly
(but not only) french speaking researchers and students with
publications in all domains of computational linguistics. It appears
three times a year and is distributed by HERMES.

 DERNIER APPEL A SOUMISSIONS

*****************************************************************


 TRAITEMENT AUTOMATIQUE DES LANGUES ET LINGUISTIQUE DE CORPUS 
 Nouveaux corpus, nouvelles pratiques, nouveaux concepts

 Num�ro sp�cial de la revue TAL dirig� par
 Beatrice Daille (IRIN, Nantes) et Laurent Romary (LORIA, Nancy) 

***************************************************************** 

THEME

La linguistique de corpus est souvent oppos�e � la linguistique
informatique du fait de sa d�marche empirique � partir de corpus et
d'une formalisation des ph�nom�nes linguistiques � posteriori. Elle a
d�velopp� depuis plusieurs ann�es ses propres m�thodes et outils pour
identifier certains ph�nom�nes linguistiques primordiaux dans de
nombreux domaines de linguistique appliqu�e tels que l'apprentissage des
langues ou la traduction.
Aujourd'hui, le d�ploiement de l'Internet, la disponibilit� de
nombreuses publications et documentations sous format �lectronique et
l'accroissement en puissance des outils informatiques a favoris� un
renouveau de l'usage de collections textuelles � tous les niveaux de
l'analyse linguistique.

Dans ce contexte et au del� du recensement de simples progr�s
techniques, il semble important de faire le point sur les nouvelles
avanc�es m�thodologiques et conceptuelles de la linguistique de corpus,
ainsi que de pr�ciser quel r�le le TAL a jou� dans ces avanc�es.

SUJETS (LISTE NON LIMITATIVE)

Dans ce num�ro sp�cial, nous souhaitons publier soit des papiers
innovants, soit des articles de synth�se et de prospective autour des
th�matiques suivantes :

- Corpus et mod�les linguistiques : Quelles th�ories nouvelles sont
issues ou �mergent du travail sp�cifique sur corpus ? Comment les
th�ories de linguistique formelle rendent-elles compte des ph�nom�nes
linguistiques observ�s en corpus, tels que les collocations, les
phras�ologies, etc ?
 - Constitution de corpus : crit�res, contraintes de s�lection et
organisation pour quelle �tude linguistique ? Comment mesurer la
repr�sentativit� d'un corpus par rapport au ph�nom�ne linguistique
�tudi� ?
- M�thodes et techniques : Quelles m�thodes et techniques d'analyse
(concordances, statistiques, annotations) ?
- Domaines et applications de la linguistique de corpus : Linguistique
de terrain, enseignement, apprentissage de mod�les stochastiques,
m�thodes d'acc�s au contenu, extraction de lexiques mono ou
multilingues, analyse de discours, traduction.
- Infrastructures, outils et accessibilit� : quels standards de
repr�sentation? pour quoi faire ? plate-forme d'acc�s aux grands corpus.
Outils d'analyse.

Nous recommandons l'utilisation de LaTeX2e pour la soumission des
articles. Les feuilles de style sont disponibles chez HERMES
