 CALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS

 4th meeting "Terminology and Artificial Intelligence"
 3-4 May 2001, Nancy, FRANCE

 
TIA 2001 is at the junction of scientific fields like linguistics, terminology
and computer science which have both distinct and complementary
approaches. In recent years, many emerging computer applications have
undertaken tasks involving terminology, term extraction, active exploration
of corpora, conceptual domain modeling, analysis of large corpora with
the aim of extracting information.

The existence of these applications that rely on interactive as well
as automated text analysis procedures have proven their feasibility
and usefulness. We invite proposals for demonstrations of applications
in the fields covered by the conference.


 	DEMONSTRATION TIMETABLE
Theoretically, each demonstration will be held once (see Program).
Demonstration sessions will be planned separately from break times.
Demonstrators can use a poster to illustrate their applications.

 	INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
The proposal should describe the computer application in one page. 
The description should include :
 - name(s) of author(s) ;
 - employer or affiliated institution;
 - description of application ;
 - computer ressources needed.

The proposal should be sent along with the Technical form that the
authors can download from the conference web site 
http://www.inist.fr/TIA2001/index.htm

 DEADLINE
 Your proposal should be sent in triplicate before April 15th, 2001 :

Message 2: LANGUAGE, MIGRATION AND THE CITY

Date: Wed, 4 Apr 2001 16:39:42 +0200
From: Bernd Schroeder <bluetraneweb.de>
Subject: LANGUAGE, MIGRATION AND THE CITY

Call for papers

Contributors are cordially invited to present papers at the conference:

LANGUAGE, MIGRATION AND THE CITY

to be held at the University of Bayreuth, Germany

from 22 November - 23 November, 2001

Abstracts (up to 300 words) by 15 September, 2001 to: jonathan.owensuni-bayreuth.de

The methodological and theoretical basis of the colloquium will center on urban sociolinguistics, with an emphasis on corpus-based approaches. Contrastive perspectives are particularly welcome.

A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

- language in the West vs. Third World
- migrants moving into an established dominant culture vs. migrants moving into an urban culture in the making
- city with dominant standard language vs. city where no standard language has effective normative force
- integration of second lg speakers vs. integration of multidialectal speakers
- contrasts between older, established multilingual communities vs. those arising through recent immigration
- influence of urban varieties on rural areas
- urban-urban migration

Specific linguistic issues include the following:

- Koinization, standardization, development of prestige varieties
- Language repertoires, styles, codeswitching
- language and social networks
- Language contact, shift, maintenance and death
- Vitality measures (should the state of available information warrant such)

It is intended that contributions will be published in a refereed sociolinguistics series.
