Meeting Description:


The Department of Linguistics at Indiana University is pleased to
announce the inaugural meeting of the MCLC, a conference intended to
provide a strong, local (midwestern) venue for the discussion of new
research in subfield of Linguistics of interest to Computational
Linguists. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Semantics and Pragmatics, Learnability
of Formal Grammar, Grammar Induction, Integration of Symbolic and
Stochastic Models of Grammar,
Foundational/Methodological/Architectural Issues in Grammar.

PhD students and Researchers with unfinished work in need of
feedback/discussion are especially encouraged to apply. More

The Linguistics Department of Indiana University, together with the
Computer Science Department and the Cognitive Science Program, is
pleased to announce the inaugural meeting of the Midwest Computational
Linguistics Colloquium, an expansion of last year's (2003) BOOTLA
workshop, which brought together researchers from a broad range of
sub-disciplines within Linguistics to discuss the computational,
psychological and theoretical issues of langauge acquisition. This
year, we will build on the topics covered at that conference by
extending the scope of our discussion to include issues in
Formal-theoretical and Computational Linguistics.

Though the workshop is intended to offer a platform primarily to
researchers in the Midwest region, applications will be considered on
the basis of academic interest alone. We therefore encourage anyone
who has done interesting research in the relevant fields to apply. We
hope that this conference will expand into a fixed annual event to be
hosted, in turn, and shared among all interested and committed
midwestern universities. Such a workshop will serve to provide us with
a strong, local venue at which to present and discuss both our own
ideas as well as those of our distinguished guests.

MCLC is especially intended to provide a forum for the presentation of
original research on computational linguistic topics, including
unfinished research and research ideas that might benefit from peer
review and discussion. In keeping with this, we also encourage
applications from Ph.D. students seeking outside review and
constructive feedback on projects in progress. As accepted papers will
be published, this workshop can also serve to provide an opportunity
for such students to present their ideas to the wider community.

Items of interest include, but are not limited to:

Formal and Computational Phonology
Semantics and Pragmatics
Learnability of Formal Grammar
Grammar Induction
Integration of Stochastic and Symbolic Models of Grammar
Foundational, Methodological and Architectural Issues in Grammar

Tentative Dates: June 25, 2004
Location: Indiana University, Bloomington, IN

Those interested in presenting should submit drafts
no later than April 20, 2004 to:

Midwest Computational Linguistics Colloquium

Any questions should be addressed to Joshua Herring:

Notification of acceptance will be sent out no later than April 30,

Final drafts of accepted papers will be expected by May 15, 2004.

Electronic submissions of final drafts are strongly encouraged as this
will speed up the process of publication.
