SINN UND BEDEUTUNG IX - 9th Annual Meeting of the Gesellschaft fuer

The Sinn und Bedeutung meetings aim to provide a platform for
semanticists to present recent work. The area of interest includes all

syntax-semantics interface, typological and historical research in
semantics, or related issues. The conference languages will be English
and German.

Message 2: NASSLLI Student Session

Date: Sun, 22 Feb 2004 00:05:55 -0800
From: Greg Kobele <>
Subject: NASSLLI Student Session


June 21-25, 2004
Deadline: April 12, 2004


The 3rd North American Summer School on Logic, Language, and
Information (NASSLLI) will be held June 21-25, 2004. It will again
feature a Student Session where students can network and get feedback
on their work -- both from faculty and student attendees. This CFP
solicits submissions to the student session. We invite submission of
anonymous abstracts for a 20-minute presentation plus 10-minute
discussion. Only one individual or joint abstract per author will be
accepted. All authors must be students (before receipt of PhD).

 The areas of interest are

Logic -- including work on problems of mathematical or philosophical
Language -- including descriptive or theoretical work in formal 
Language and Logic -- applications of logic to natural language
Language and Computation -- theoretical and empirical work in 
computational linguistics
Logic and Computation -- automated theorem-proving and related fields
Computation -- artificial intelligence or related areas of computer 

Work integrating several of these areas is of particular interest.


 The Student Session papers should describe original, unpublished
work that has been completed. However, no previously published papers
should be submitted.

All authors must be at the pre-doctoral level; submissions co-authored
by non-students will be discarded.

 Format of Submission

 3 page extended abstracts are to be submitted by email as Adobe
Portable Document Files (PDF). This file must include a separate
identification page including the following pieces of information:

 Title: title of the submission
First author: firstname lastname
Address: address of the first author
 Last author: firstname lastname
Address: address of the last author
Short summary: abstract (5 lines)
Subject area (one or two of): Logic | Language | Computation
Other Conferences Submitted To:

Neither this identification page, nor any bibliography counts towards
the 3 page requirement.

Since reviewing will be blind, the body of the extended abstract
should omit author names and addresses. Furthermore, self-references
that reveal the author's identity (e.g., "We previously showed
(Hi-Mom, 1996)... ") should be avoided. It is possible to use instead
references like "Hi-Mom (1996) previously showed..."

The PDF of the paper is to be enclosed in an email duplicating the
information on the identification page. Use US Letter paper and LaTeX
if possible.

Please email submissions to Greg Kobele <> by
APRIL 12th 2004.


 At least one author needs to register for NASSLLI '04 in order to be
in the student session. One of the authors will give a 20-minute talk
with up to 10 minutes for discussion.


 Deadline for submission of 3 page abstracts : April 12th, 2004
 Author notifications : May 1st, 2004
 NASSLLI-2004 Student Session : June 21-25, 2004.
