			SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

 HPSG-2004

 11th International Conference on
 Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar
 Centre for Computational Linguistics

 3-6 August 2004

The 11th International Conference on HPSG will take place in Belgium
on 3-6 August 2004, hosted by the Centre for Computational Linguistics
of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The conference will include a
workshop on SEMANTICS in GRAMMAR ENGINEERING.

MAIN CONFERENCE (4-6 August 2004)

Abstracts are solicited for 30-minute presentations (followed by 10
minutes discussion) which address linguistic, foundational, or
computational issues relating to the framework of Head-Driven Phrase
Structure Grammar.

INVITED SPEAKERS

Jonathan Ginzburg
Other invited speakers t.b.a.

WORKSHOP on SEMANTICS in GRAMMAR ENGINEERING (3 August 2004)

Semantic formalisms, such as Minimal Recursion Semantics (MRS),
Constraint Language for Lambda Structures (CLLS), and the LFG ''Glue''
Semantics, among others, have been designed to meet the demands of
both theoretical linguistics and natural language processing. The aim
of the workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of empirical
and formal approaches to semantics and the syntax-semantics interface
in the development of (large-scale) computational grammars.

INVITED SPEAKER

Ann Copestake

We solicit abstracts (for 30+10 minute presentations) focusing on:
- the modeling and implementation of aspect, situation types, semantic
 argument structure, semantic decomposition, word sense disambiguation,
 anaphora resolution, etc.,
- the use of semantic formalisms in grammars for applications such as
 machine translation, information extraction, dialogue, etc.,
- the relationship between semantic representation and disambiguation,
- other themes relevant to the role of semantics in grammar
 engineering.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

For both the main conference and the workshop,
we invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for presentations, 
to consist of two parts

1) a separate information page in plain text format, containing
 - author name(s)
 - affiliation(s)

 - title of paper

2) an extended abstract of not more than 5 (five) pages, including all
 figures and references. Abstracts should preferably be in PDF format.
