Meeting Description:

Tilburg University in the Netherlands will host the 6th International
Workshop on Computational Semantics on 12-14 January 2005. The aim of
the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in any aspect
of the computation, annotation, and representation of meaning in
natural language, in multimedia objects, or in multimodal
messages. The workshop will be preceded by the 4th meeting of the
ACl-SIGSEM Working Group on the Representation of Multimodal Semantic
Information on 10-11 January 2005. This meeting will be open to IWCS-6
participants.

TOPICS:

Areas of special interest for IWCS-6 will be computational aspects of
semantic theories; theoretical aspects of the design and
implementation of language understanding systems and systems for
multimodal communication; and semantic annotation of natural language
and multimodal utterances. Papers are invited that are concerned with
topics in these areas, including but not limited to the following:

* construction of representations of meaning in natural language
* modelling and using context for semantic interpretation
* learning lexical semantics from corpora
* methdologies and tools for semantic annotation
* information sources and their use in meaning computation
* construction and use of underspecified representations of meaning
* the semantic web and natural language semantics
* referential relations to concepts in ontologies and repositories
* machine learning of semantic structures
* the semantics of speech acts and dialogue acts
* the computational semantics-pragmatics interface
* dynamic interpretation in text, speech and dialogue
* meaning representation in multimodal interaction
* referential links within and across mmodalities
* gestural morphosyntax and its semantic interpretation
* structural semantic relations in discourse and dialogue
* semantic aspects of language generation
* shallow processing and semantics
* monotonicity and shallow reasoning in interpretation

PAPER SUBMISSION:

Three types of submissions are solicited: full papers, short papers,
and project abstracts.

Full papers are descriptions of original work that have not been
published elsewhere of maximally 12 pages.

Short papers are mini-papers of 3 pages, that will be published in the
IWCS-6 proceedings and will have a flash presentation at the
workshop. Authos of short papers are also invited to put up a poster
and to participate in a poster session.

Project abstracts are brief descriptions of 2 pages of ongoing,
recently completed, or starting projects. They will be published in
the IWCS-6 proceedings and will be presented in poster sessions.

Submissions of all three types should be in postscript or pdf format
and prepared with LaTeX; see the IWCS-6 website:
http://let.uvt.nl/research/ti/sigsem/iwcs/iwcs6 for information on the
style files to be used.
