Workshop on Syntax: Theoretical Approaches to Case

Organizer: Jong-Bok Kim (Kyung Hee U) 
 Invited Speakers: Joan Maling (Brandeis U), William O'Grady (U of
Hawaii), Peter Sells (Stanford U), James H-S Yoon (U of Illinois)

Workshop Description: Case marking remains a central topic in
generative grammar for several reasons, including the fact that it:
(1) plays a central role in argument licensing; (2) signals
grammatical functions; (3) has the potential to mark properties of
information structure; (4) has a core role in defining properties of
the syntax-morphology interface. Different theoretical approaches
offer different perspectives and formal tools for the exploration of
these topics. We hope that the workshop will involve diverse views on
the theoretical nature of case marking, with the goal of achieving
greater insight into issues relating to the topics above. We invite
abstracts that address any empirical or theoretical issues relevant to
the analysis of case, from any theoretical perspective.

Workshop on Phonology & Morphology: Issues on Loanword Adaptation

Organizers: Yongsoon Kang (SungKyunKwan U) & Chung-Kon Shi (KAIST)
Invited Speakers: Francis Katamba (Lancaster U), Ki-Moon Lee (Seoul
NU), Hyoung-youb Kim (Korea U), Mira Oh (Cheonnam N U)

Workshop Description: Loanword adaptation would be one of the great
objects of research in the areas of Phonology and Morphology for such
reasons as (1) it provides the window for the internal structure of
mother tongue (2) it sheds light on the interaction of neighboring
languages, and (3) it would have its own mechanism through which
foreign words are introduced. Despite the significance of the
phenomena, many of loanword issues are still open to debate and
discussion. We hope that the workshop makes a great place to discuss
and get the insight of the borrowing process. We sincerely invite
abstracts that address any empirical or theoretical issues relevant to
the loanword adaptation.

Workshop on Semantics & Pragmatics: Representation and Computation of

Organizer: Hae-Kyung Wee (Korea Cyber U) Invited Speakers: Hans Kamp
(Stuttgart U), Chungmin Lee (Seoul N U), Jae-Il Yeom (Hongik U),
Keumhyun Moon (Sookmyung WU)

Workshop Description: Presupposition involves a variety of
semantic/pragmatic issues, including projection problem,
accommodation, and binding, which have motivated formal semantic
theories to evolve into the current states of dynamic semantics, and
its interrelation with other semantic/pragmatic phenomena. The aim of
the workshop is to explore these issues, regarding the representation
and computation of presupposition in particular, and their
implications to other related issues. Topics to be discussed include,
but are not limited to: 1) The treatment of presupposition and/or its
implementation in semantic or pragmatic frameworks, 2) the
interrelation between theories of presupposition and theories of other
related semantic and/or pragmatic phenomena, e.g., anaphora, focus,
topic, information structure, etc., and 3) the proper and consistent
treatment of different types of presuppositions. Abstracts are invited
for papers on any theoretical or empirical issues related to these and
other related topics.

Abstract Submission: Abstracts should be submitted electronically to
the organizers by March 15, 2004: Abstracts for Workshop on Syntax to
