Meeting Description:

The conference covers the processing of metaphor, metonymy and other
closely related forms of figurative language, whether by brains or by
AI systems. It encompasses computational (symbolic and non-symbolic),
psychological and neuroscientific approaches to processing. Specific
topics of interest include understanding and generation, information
retrieval and extraction, context handling, machine translation,
identification of figurative language, child development,
relationships with mental or developmental disorders, and brain
regions and mechanisms involved in processing. The conference aims
especially to foster increased interchange between researchers from
different disciplines. The conference is open to researchers
world-wide, whether from industry or academia. Participation will be
limited to 100. The emphasis will be on discussion about new
developments. The conference fee covers registration as well as full
board and lodging. Grants will be available, in particular for
nationals under 35 from EU or Associated States. Deadline for
applications: 23 January 2004.
