Lambda Calculus, Type Theory and Natural Language

Monday, 12th September 2005

This is the third call for papers for the second workshop on Lambda Calculus,
Type Theory and Natural Language. The first workshop was held in London in
December 2003. Selected papers from that workshop are shortly to be published in
a special edition of the Journal of Logic and Computation.

This call for papers for the second workshop is also available as a PDF
document, and as plain text.

Scope

Submissions are invited on all aspects of the lambda calculus and its connection
with type theory, natural language, and functional programming.

Important Dates

Call for papers:
Tuesday, 1st March, 2005
Second call:
Monday, 11th April, 2005
Third call:
Monday, 3rd May, 2005

Submission Guidelines

Initial papers should be of at most 10 A4 or US Letter size pages, with a
minimum font size of 10pt for the body of the text, and with margins of no less
than 2.5cm (1 inch) all round. Papers should be submitted by email in PDF form,
or as Postscript documents that can be viewed with Ghostscript.

Submitted papers should explain their contribution in both general and technical
terms. They should identify what has been accomplished, explain why it is
significant, and compare it with previous work. Authors should try to make the

Meeting Description:

WORKSHOP MOTIVATION AND AIMS

Treebanks are a language resource that provides annotations of natural languages
at various levels of structure: at the word level, the phrase level, the
sentence level, and sometimes also at the level of function-argument structure.
Treebanks have become crucially important for the development of data-driven
approaches to natural language processing, human language technologies, grammar
extraction and linguistic research in general. There are a number of on-going
projects on compilation of representative treebanks for languages that still
lack them (Bulgarian, Catalan, Danish, Portugese, Spanish, Turkish) and a number
of on-going projects on compilation of treebanks for specific purposes for
languages that already have them (English). In addition, there are projects that
go beyond syntactic analysis to include different kinds of semantic and
pragmatic annotation.

The practices of building syntactically processed corpora have proved that
aiming at more detailed description of the data becomes more and more
theory-dependent (Prague Dependency Treebank and other dependency-based
treebanks such as the Danish dependency treebank, the Italian treebank (TUT),
and the Turkish treebank (METU); Verbmobil HPSG Treebanks, Polish HPSG Treebank,
Bulgarian HPSG-based Treebank, etc.). Therefore the development of treebanks and
formal linguistic theories need to be more tightly connected in order to ensure
the necessary information flow between them.

This series of workshops aims at being a forum for researchers and advanced
students working in these areas. The fourth workshop will be held in Barcelona,
Spain, 9-10 December 2005. (The first was held in Sozopol, Bulgaria in September
2002; see http://www.bultreebank.org/Proceedings.html), the second one in Växjö,
Sweden in November 2003 (http://w3.msi.vxu.se/~rics/TLT2003/ and the third one
in Tübingen, Germany in December 2004 (http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/tlt04/).

The Fourth Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 2005)
Barcelona, 9-10 December 2005


TOPICS OF INTEREST
We invite submission of papers on topics relevant to treebanks and linguistic
theories, including but not limited to:

*design principles and annotation schemes for treebanks;
*applications of treebanks in acquiring linguistic knowledge and NLP;
*the role of linguistic theories in treebank development;
*treebanks as a basis for linguistic research;
*semantically annotated treebanks;
*evaluation of treebanks;
*tools for creation and management of treebanks;
*standards for treebanks.


IMPORTANT DATES
Deadline for workshop abstract submission:
11 July 2005

Notification of acceptance:
7 September 2005

Final version of paper for workshop proceedings:
7 October 2005

Workshop:
9-10 December 2005


SUBMISSIONS
We invite extended abstracts (maximum 1500 words) describing existing research
connected to the topics of the workshop. Please note that as reviewing will be
blind, the abstract should not include the authors' names and affiliations.
Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., ''We
previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...'', should be avoided. Instead, use citations
such as ''Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991)...''. Electronic submission (ps
or pdf) is strongly encouraged.

Each submission should additionally include in the accompanying email: title;
author(s); affiliation(s); and contact author's e-mail address, postal address,
telephone and fax numbers.

Abstracts should be sent to: mcivitub.edu clearly indicating in the subject
line: ''TLT05 submission''

The presentation at the workshop will be 25 minutes long (20 minutes for
presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion). The final version of
the accepted papers may not exceed 12 A4 pages.
