Meeting Description: SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

The theme of the international conference is Signs of the World:
Interculturality and Globalization, and while papers directed toward
that very broad topic are welcome, in the spirit of Bobbie Kevelson we
are of course open to all varieties of legal semiotics.

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

SIGNS OF THE WORLD: Interculturality and globalisation 

Signs are conceived and circulate in a world whose recent evolution
has brought about a change in the nature of geopolitical and
intercultural relations. The evolution in the means of exchange, in
the representations of the world and the strategies devised by
political and institutional actors lead semioticians to appraise and
update their concepts and analysis tools. The 8th IASS congress will
have interculturality and globalisation as themes. It will allow for
clarification of the specific contributions of semiotics to world
comprehension and to political, economic, cultural, aesthetic and
anthropological debate. Through their involvement in critical
reflection on globalisation, semioticians contribute to the process of
clarifying issues arising from this reflection and have a role to play
in this contemporary debate: how world cultures can be made more
intellible to each other within the framework of their own
differences. While papers directed toward that very broad topic are
welcome, in the spirit of Bobbie Kevelson we are of course open to all
varieties of legal semiotics.

1. Theoretical semiotics and epistemology 
2. Differences and identities: discrimination and negotiation 
3. Communication: a system of exchange and production 
4. Semiotics and cultural practices 
5. Semiotics and aesthetic practices 
6. Semiotics of the globalisation of space and time 
7. Critical discourse on the political economy of the sign

Subject: Computational Linguistics in Poland 2004



 COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS IN POLAND 2004
 (CLiP 2004)

 A special session within

 INTELLIGENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS 2004
 New Trends in Intelligent Information Processing and Web Mining
 http://iipwm.ipipan.waw.pl/


Date: 17-20 May 2004
Location: Zakopane, Poland

INVITED PLENARY SPEAKER: Stan Szpakowicz, University of Ottawa

The International Conference on Intelligent Information Systems 2004:
New Trends in Intelligent Information Processing and Web Mining will
host a special session on broadly understood Computational
Linguistics. The aim of this session is to provide a forum for the
presentation of recent results in natural language processing, both
within the statistical paradigm and the symbolic paradigm, and to
encourage the interaction between scholars working on the processing
of natural languages, especially, but not exclusively, morphologically
rich languages such as Polish.

We invite original contributions within a broad range of areas,
including, but not restricted to:

* automatic text analysis and synthesis,
* creation of linguistic resources,
* corpus-based language processing,
* statistical and machine learning methods in NLP,
* information retrieval, information extraction and text summarization,
* speech recognition and synthesis,
* question answering systems,
* dialogue systems,
* machine and machine-aided translation tools.

Articles submitted to this session should follow the general
submission procedure of the host conference, described in the first
announcement: http://iipwm.ipipan.waw.pl/iipwm-announc.txt. In
particular, the deadline for the submission of papers is 15th October
2003.

Note that the Programme Committee of the host conference has been
extended by incorporating the following distinguished scholars:

Leonard Bolc, Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland
Jan Hajic, Charles University, Czech Republic
Erhard Hinrichs, University of Tuebingen, Germany
Detmar Meurers, Ohio State University, USA
Kiril Simov, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Bulgaria
