17th Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing
March 25th-27th, 2004
University of Maryland, College Park

Featuring a Special Session on
The Relationship between Parsing and Production

The 17th Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing will be
held a t the University of Maryland, in suburban Washington DC, on
March 25th-27th 2004. The conference is hosted by the Department of
Linguistics, and the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies.

Abstracts are solicited for papers and posters presenting theoretical,
experimental, and/or computational research on any aspect of human
sentence processing. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously, and will
be considered for both the general conference sessions and the special
session on The Relation between Parsing and Production. (See below for
more details of this sess ion.)

Conference email: cuny2004umd.edu
Website: http://www.ling.umd.edu/cuny2004

SUBMISSION DEADLINE. Friday, December 5th, 2003. Notification of
acceptance or rejection will be sent in mid-January, 2004.

SUBMISSION DETAILS. All abstracts will be submitted electronically,
via the web, in ASCII plain text format. Full submission details will
be posted on the conference web site shortly.

You will be asked to indicate whether you wish the paper to be
considered for a spoken paper session only, poster only, or both. You
may also indicate that you would like your submission to be considered
for the special sess ion on The Relation between Parsing and
Production (this affects scheduling of papers and posters, but does
not affect the review criteria). The abstract consists of a title
followed by at most 400 words of text. You may also include examples,
references and data summaries. This additional material, taken
together, should not exceed 15 lines of text. Abstracts that exceed
the word-limit or 'creatively' use the 15 lines of text to extend the
abstract may be rejected without review.

SPECIAL SESSION ON
THE RELATION BETWEEN PARSING AND PRODUCTION

There will be a special session entitled ''The Relation between
Parsing and Production,'' to be held on Friday March 26th. There are
long traditions of research in both sentence comprehension and
sentence production, and it has always been recognized that there must
be at least some connection between the two areas, even if the
connection is just that speaking and understanding are based upon the
same lexicon and the same grammar. However, for a long time, the two
fields investigated largely different phenomena, using largely
different methodologies. This, together with some additional
considerations, led to the conclusion that sentence comprehension and
sentence production are largely independent cognitive systems. Recent
developments motivate a reexamination of this received wisdom: (i)
increased interest in parallels between parsing and production,
particularly in dialog, (ii) increased parallels in the research
methodologies used in the two areas. The questions addressed by the
special session will include: What, if anything, do sentence
comprehension and production have in common, beyond the fact that they
operate over similar representations (e.g. same lexicon)? Do sentence
comprehension and production operate on the same time-scale, and with
the same degree of incrementality? How can the various parallels
between comprehension and production that are emerging from lab-based
studies be reconciled with widespread findings of
comprehension-production asymmetries in both language disorders and
language development? In methodological terms, how closely is it
possible to match tasks across both comprehension and production?

If you wish your abstract to be considered for the special session,
please indicate so in your abstract submission. Papers and posters on
this topic will be scheduled contiguously with the invited
talks. Review criteria for special session papers will be identical to
those for the rest of the conference.
