Subject: NLULP'02: Call for Participation

		 The 7th International Workshop on
	 Natural Language Understanding and Logic Programming
	 An affiliated workshop with ICLP, as part of FLoC'02

		 Copenhagen, Denmark, 28 July, 2002


The International Workshop on Natural Language Understanding and Logic
Programming was first organized in Rennes, France, in 1984. Since then
similar workshops took place in Vancouver, Canada (1987), Dalgharten,
Sweden (1991), Nara, Japan (1993), Lisbon, Portugal (1995) and most
recently, the 6th NLULP took place in Las Cruces, New Mexico in
December 1999, as part of the International Conference on Logic
Programming (ICLP'99). This year, NLULP is affiliated again with ICLP,
The International Conference on Logic Programming, which is held as
part of FLoC'02, The 2002 Federated Logic Conference, the major
computational logic event of the year.

The Workshop aims to cover all aspects of the intersection of Natural
Language Understanding with Logic Programming and Constraint (Logic)
Programming, both theoretical and practical, in all levels of
linguistic investigation. Special emphasis was given to works
addressing the logical, mathematical and computational relationships
between linguistic formalisms and logic programming.

Please refer to the main FLoC'02 web site for information on
registration and accommodation. You do not have to register to any
other FLoC'02 event in order to participate in NLULP'02; however,
there is a registration fee supplement if you are not registered to
any other FLoC'02 main conference. Some grants are available to
provide travel support for participants in FLoC'02. Note that the
deadline for early registration is June 15.


We are grateful to The Association for Logic Programming for the
financial support of the Workshop.
