Message 1: Malay/Indonesian Linguistics, 2nd Call

Date: Mon, 18 Feb 2002 13:16:47 +0700
From: MPI EVA Jakarta Field Station <>
Subject: Malay/Indonesian Linguistics, 2nd Call

Second Call for Abstracts

The Sixth

3-5 August 2002
Nirwana Resort Hotel, Bintan Island, Riau, Indonesia


Papers presented at ISMIL are concerned with the Malay/Indonesian
language in any of its varieties. In addition to the standardized
versions of Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are
particularly welcome dealing with non-canonical isolects such as
regional dialects of Malay and Indonesian, contact varieties, and
other closely related Malayic languages. Papers may be in any of the
subfields of linguistics, and may represent variegated approaches and
diverse theoretical persuasions. Presentations at ISMIL are delivered
in English, as is befitting an international symposium.


Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to
submit a one-page abstract to Umberto Ansaldo at the following

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1 March 2002



National University of Singapore
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
University of Delaware
Association for Linguistic Typology


Umberto Ansaldo, National University of Singapore
Peter Cole, University of Delaware
David Gil, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
Uri Tadmor, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology

 The 7th International Workshop on
 Natural Language Understanding and Logic Programming

 An affiliated workshop with ICLP, as part of FLoC'02

 Copenhagen, Denmark, 27-28 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.

Topics of interest include 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 will be given to works
addressing the logical, mathematical and computational relationships
between linguistic formalisms and logic programming. Relevant issues
include, but are not limited to, investigations of the logical theory
underlying linguistic formalisms; alternative approaches to the
semantics of such formalisms; applications of constraint logic
programming to ``constraint-based'' linguistic formalisms; issues
governing grammar engineering, scalability, modularization,
information encapsulation, etc; applications of inductive logic
programming methods to NLP; higher-order logic programming;
applications of functional programming to NLP; etc. However, all works
dealing with issues of natural language and logic programming are


Papers should be written in English and describe original, unpublished
work. They should emphasize completed rather than proposed work. The
state of completion of reported results should be clearly
indicated. Papers must be anonymous and refrain from
self-reference. Accepted papers cannot be presented or have been
presented at any other meeting with publicly available published
proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or
workshops must indicate this on the title page.

Submissions should be no longer than 15 pages (A4 or Letter format,
single column, 11pt, at least 2.5cm / 1 inch margins), including title
(but no author names), abstract, keywords and references. All
contributions are to be made electronically, preferably as PDF
attachments. Please send your anonymous submission to the organizer, If electronic submission is impossible, please
contact the organizer. The deadline for submission is Sunday, 17
February, 2002.

The anonymous submission should be accompanied by an e-mail listing
the following details:

 * Authors' names and affiliations
 * Address
 * E-mail addresses
 * Title
 * Keywords
 * Abstract

All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the
program committee. The accepted papers will be made available
electronically as part of the Workshop's Proceedings. Depending on the
quality of the submissions, we intend to publish selected papers in a
special issue of the Journal of Language and Computation.
