Meeting Description:

Cybernetics of Language. August 1, 2004, Baden-Baden, Germany. Part of
16th International Conference on Systems Research, Informatics and

16th International Conference on Systems Research, Informatics and
Cybernetics to be held July 29 - August 5, 2004 in Baden-Baden,
Germany announces Special Focus Symposium on:

Cybernetics of Language
August 1, 2004

Chair: Dr. Stijn Hoppenbrouwers, University of Nijmegen, NL
Conference Chair: Prof. George E. Lasker, IIAS, Windsor, Canada

Focus of the Symposium

The focus is on theories, methods and practices concerning the control
of and communication about language, in view of its (intended) use in
some communicational context. In the center of our focus are processes
that lead to language specifications (including all sorts of
conceptual specifications) intended for computer-related use. However,
related issues extend into the world of organizational communication,
and far beyond (education, politics, technology, science, engineering,
literature, art, etc.)

Though standardization (of terminologies, ontologies, etc.) is a
powerful means of controlling language, it cannot be the whole
answer. Language is an evolving creature by nature. Its evolution
mostly takes place beyond explicitly exercised control, i.e. through
''natural change'', but it can also be subject to purposeful
engineering or management. We are particularly interested in language
evolution as part of processes for achieving shared meaning and
understanding among conversation participants.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

-Theory and practices concerning language management and control
-The role of language in (2nd order) cybernetics and Conversation
-Application of Conversation Theory to language management and control
-The role of language in evolutionary systems
-The role of language in information and knowledge system development
-Language-related aspects of formalization processes
-Language specification processes in knowledge engineering
-Language specification processes in information systems development
-Domain modeling and conceptual modeling processes
-Terminology management
-Processes or procedures in lexicology, translation, and localization
-Cognitive, social, or psycholinguistic aspects of (cooperative)
-Support (computerized or otherwise) of cooperative conceptualization

Call Deadline: 28-Mar-2004 

Meeting Description:

This call addresses phonologists and phoneticians working on German or
in a German speaking country, and is therefore formulated in
German. Wir moechten unter diesem Titel halbjaehrliche oder jaehrliche
Treffen der Phonologen und Phonetiker im deutschsprachigen Raum
initiieren. Wir bieten dies als eine Art Fortsetzung von PPSW (damals:
im Suedwesten) in den 90er Jahren an. Wie damals denken wir dabei an
einen informellen Rahmen mit Vortraegen durch Anmeldung, und Zeit zum
Austausch und zur Diskussion. Es sind keine Keynote-Sprecher geplant,
und jede(r) sorgt für die eigene Unterbringung und Reise. Wir wollen
dazu ermutigen, gelegentlich auch Vortraege mit Literaturueberblicken
zu neuen Entwicklungen von allgemeinem Interesse anzubieten.

Für das erste Treffen moechten wir zum 18. und 19. Juni 2004 an die
Universitaet Potsdam einladen. Wenn Sie einen Vortrag anmelden wollen,
oder wenn Sie in die Mailing-Liste aufgenommen werden wollen, schicken
Sie bitte eine email an Caroline ( Wir wuerden
gerne Ende Maerz ein vorlaeufiges Programm vorstellen koennen.

Wir denken an Vortraege von 30 oder 45 Minuten plus Diskussion, und
wollen die Laenge der Vortraege entsprechend dem Interesse einheitlich

Die Web-Seite für das Treffen in Potsdam finden Sie unter Dort soll
spaeter auch das Programm sowie weitere Details zur Verfuegung stehen.

Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Zuschriften.
Mit schoenen Gruessen,
