COLING/ACL 2006: Call for Workshop Proposals

The Program Committee of the 21st International Conference on Computational Linguistics and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the joint COLING/ACL conference in Sydney, Australia. We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the COLING and ACL community. We especially welcome interdisciplinary proposals that encourage deeper connections to fields both traditionally and more recently allied with computational linguistics (such as linguistics, speech processing, psychology, information retrieval, machine learning, bioinformatics, etc.).

The workshops will be held on Saturday, July 22, and Sunday, July 23, near the main COLING/ACL 2006 conference venue.

The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find general information on policies regarding attendance, publication, financing, and sponsorship, as well as on specific policies on sponsorship and financial support of SIG workshops, at the following URL: http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/index-policies.html

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Proposals must be submitted using the Workshop Proposal Submission Form. The submission form provides detailed instructions on the information required in the proposal.

Please submit proposals by electronic mail in plain ASCII text, using the Workshop Proposal Submission Form, to the following address: acl2006workshopscs.toronto.edu.

The subject line should be: ''ACL 2006 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL''.

IMPORTANT DATES

Submission deadline for workshop proposals: December 9, 2005
Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals: January 16, 2006
Workshop Dates: July 22-23, 2006

Call for papers
Workshop on ''Acquisition and impairments of inflectional morphology''

We cordially invite abstracts for the above mentioned workshop which will be held during the 12th International Morphology Meeting in Budapest, May 25-28, 2006.

Submission deadline for abstracts: Dec 15 05

In Humboldt's and Sapir's language typology, the languages of the world are classified according to their inflectional morphology: They distinguished isolating from analytical from synthetic languages; the latter can be inflectional, agglutinative, or polysynthetic. In language acquisition, the intensity or richness of inflection is a further important feature for the detection of the structure of the target language and the course of the acquisition process. Similarly, in language impairments, the distribution and severity of defects may depend on the structure of the inflectional morphology of the respective language.

Against this typological background, we aim in our workshop to discuss findings and hypotheses concerning universal and language-specific factors playing a role in the acquisition and impairments of inflectional morphology.

The workshop aims to contribute to suggestions towards the following general questions:

1) How does the morphological typology of the target language(s) influence the L1 acquisition process or the results of language impairments?
2) What are characteristic delays in the acquisition of inflectional morphology in impaired children (in dependence of the morphological typology of the input)?
3) Which conclusions about the structure of inflectional systems can be drawn from the study of child language acquisition and language impairments?

We invite contributions from all theoretical backgrounds dealing with acquisition or impairments of inflectional morphology, especially if they take the typological variety of human languages into account. We particularly encourage studies comparing the morphological acquisition process in impaired and unimpaired children.

Colleagues interested in participating in the workshop are invited to announce their participation as soon as possible and to send a one-page abstract (preferably pdf) by e-mail to both of the organizers, Wolfgang U. Dressler and Dagmar Bittner, by December 15th, 2005:

Sincerely,
Wolfgang U. Dressler and Dagmar Bittner
