Chronos 7

International conference on
tense, aspect, mood, and modality

18 - 20 September 2006

University of Antwerp
(Belgium)

Chronos is a series of biannual conferences dedicated to current research on the
morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of markers of tense, aspect, mood,
and modality. The conferences aim to bring together researchers working from
different perspectives and in different theoretical frames.

Special topic:
Tense and modality

Submissions addressing the relationships between temporal and nontemporal/modal
values of tenses are especially encouraged. Submissions to the conference are
not restricted to the special topic. We welcome proposals relating to any area
in the linguistics of tense, aspect, mood, and modality.

Abstract submissions

Presentations will be delivered in English or French. The deadline for abstract
submissions is January 8, 2006. Abstracts should be sent either to the following
email address as an attachment:

Chronos7ua.ac.be

or to this snail mail address on a separate page:

Walter De Mulder
University of Antwerp (CST)
Department of Linguistics
Rodestraat 14
2000 Antwerp
Belgium

The email message or accompanying cover letter should specify all contact
information for the author(s), including their name, affiliation, university or
home address, and email address, as well as the exact title of the submission.

The abstract should be anonymous and will be subject to a blind review. It
should not exceed one page, Times 11, examples and references included.
Accepted formats for electronic submissions are Word, PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader,
version 6), or rich text format (RTF).

Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection of their proposal by
February 28, 2006.

A maximum of one individual and one co-authored paper is considered per author.

A second call for papers will provide more details about the organization of the
conference. It will be distributed in late October.

Meeting Description:

Language Archives with their standards, creation and accsess are the topic of
this workshop. It happens quite frequently that linguistic data which has been
collected, recorded and processed with great expenditure of time and effort
disappear in the linguist's desk drawer or are only accessible to former project
scientists. This workshop intends to discuss ways of improving the situation as
brought forward by different projects and intitiatives.

Extended Deadline for the Workshop: Language Archives: Standards, Creation and
Access 2005-09-09

It happens quite frequently that linguistic data which has been collected,
recorded and processed with great expenditure of time and effort disappear in
the linguist's desk drawer or are only accessible to former project scientists.

In order to improve this situation, several initiatives started in the 1990s
with the goal of archiving linguistic data and making them accessible to other
linguists. Examples are CHILDES, ISLE/IMDI und OLAC. The language archives which
have been created by these and subsequent initiatives include DoBeS, PARADISEC,
HRELP, AILLA and E-MELD. They permit access to data which have already been
prepared, and will thereby permit many linguistic projects to omit the phases of
data collection and preparation and start directly with the analysis phase. This
economises on money and time, and makes the project work more efficient.

Some of the data offered by language archives are annotated, and are relevant
for several research areas, including for instance language acquisition and sign
languages.

A further domain of archiving is the documentation of endangered languages,
which require long term archiving for many reasons. In this connection the
interoperability of language resources, both data and tools, is especially
important in order to guarantee long-term re-usability even when technologies
change. The Working Group will treat the following aspects of archive design:

(a) archive standards (data formats and working techniques, portability),
(b) ethical and legal aspects of archiving (long-term access),
(c) access methods (internet and other media) and software for data access and
data manipulation (data browsers, analysis software),
(d) archive use for purposes of language revitalisation.
Working Group contributions which describe existing and functioning archives
will be preferred. With this strategy the Working Group aims to offer linguists
concrete support in the search for accessible data. The languages of the Working
Group are German and, preferably, English.

Submission of Abstracts:

Abstracts of papers should be up to one page long (using 2.5 cm margins on each
side and 12 pt font size). The body should include the following information:
author's name(s), affiliation, email address, and title of abstract.

Presentations should last 20 minutes (+ 10 minutes for questions and
discussion). Depending on the number and quality of abstracts we receive, there
may be room for a few longer presentations (45 min. + 15 min. quest./disc.).

All abstracts should be submitted in English or German only, in Rich Text Format
(RTF as produced by text processors such as MS-Word, OpenOffice, etc. ) or PDF
or the standard Open Document Format for Office Applications. Please save and
send your abstract in PDF format if it contains special fonts, tables, etc.

Your submission should be sent electronically to ag-spracharchivempi.nl from
where it will be distributed to the organizers.

Note that the workshop is part of the DGfS conference. All participants must
register for the conference. Note also that in accordance with the DGfS
guidelines no speaker is allowed to give a talk in more than one workshop of the
DGfS main conference.

Important Dates:

Deadline for abstract submission: 9 September 2005
Notification of acceptance: 15 September 2005.
Camera ready copy: 15 October 2005
