Lyon, France, July, 10th to 13th, 2002.

The aim of the Society is "to promote interaction between
philosophers, linguists, and psychologists on issues of common
concern". Psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer
scientists and biologists are encouraged to report experimental,
theoretical and clinical work that they judge to have philosophical
significance. In recent years ESPP sessions have covered such topics
as spatial concepts, simulation theory, attention, problems of
consciousness, emotion,perception, early numerical cognition, memory
and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, reasoning, vagueness,
cognitive semantics, semantic-pragmatic-distinction, deixis, mental
causation, action, thought without language, externalism,
connectionism, and the interpretation of neuropsychological results.

The complete list of invited speakers and themes for invited symposia
will be available shortly. At the moment, confirmed invited speakers

Peter Gerdenfors (Lund University)
Manuel Garcia Carpintero (University of Barcelona)
Tim Dalgleish (Cambridge University)
Matthew Crocker (Saarland University)

Confirmed symposia include:
Game Theory in Linguistics and Cognitive Science (convenor: Robert van
Rooy, Amsterdam).
Pragmatics (convenor: Richard Breheny, Cambridge)
Hypnosis (convenor: Zsoltan Dienes, Sussex)
Self recognition (convenor: Marc Jeannerod, Lyon)

The Society invites submitted papers and posters for this meeting.
Submitted papers are refereed and selected on the basis of quality and
relevance to psychologists, linguists and philosophers. Papers should
not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced pages) for
sessions which will last a total of 30 minutes. Papers must be

common theme to be refereed jointly and assessed for acceptance as a
themed symposium. There will also be poster presentations. A
submission for a poster presentation should consist of a 500-word

Submitted papers may also be considered for presentation as posters.

Subject: Final CFP: 2nd Workshop on NLP and XML

 2nd Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2002)

 Taipei, September 1, 2002

 Final Call for Papers 

*** Paper submission deadline: May 5, 2002 ***

The 2nd Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2002) will be held at
COLING-2002 in Taipei on September 1, 2002. This workshop follows on
from the 1st NLP and XML Workshop at NLPRS-2001 in Tokyo.

The goal of the workshop is two-fold: (1) to provide a forum for
presentation and discussion of XML use in natural language processing
(including resource and software development, applications, tools,
etc.); and (2) to clarify the "big picture" for natural language
applications and resources vis a vis the XML framework and development
of the Semantic Web. As such, the workshop is intended not only for
those already using XML, but also for members of the NLP community who
seek a fuller understanding of the motivations and implications of XML
and related standards for the field.

Workshop Topics
- -------------

Topics to be addressed include:

 - Position statements concerning the implications of XML, RDF, and
 the Semantic Web for NLP resources and applications, together with

 - XML use for linguistic annotation, including overall data
 architecture, implications for editorial practices, linkage
 mechanisms and issues for NLP data, etc.

 - Definition of data models and data categories for NLP using XML,
 RDF, etc.

 - XML standards for NLP;

 - XML-based generation (text, web pages, dialogue responses, etc.);

 - Use of XML mechanisms (schemas, XSL, XSLT, links, etc.) in
 specific applications/resources;

 - XML aware NLP tools.

The program committee welcomes the submission of original, unpublished
papers on any of the workshop topics and related issues.

- ---------

Papers must not exceed 8 pages, including references. The title page
should include the title, authors' names, affiliations and email
addresses, and a short abstract of no more than 10 lines.

Please use the COLING-2002 style sheets available from

All papers should be submitted in electronic form as PDF (preferred),
PostScript, or MS Word files. Please convert PostScript or MS Word
files to PDF if at all possible. Send your papers by email to
