Meeting Description:

Journées de Sémantique et Modélisation - Conference on Semantics and
Modelisation - Bordeaux, France, April 6-7, 2006

The GDR Sémantique et Modélisation (CNRS) and the University of Bordeaux I
organize the fourth edition of the Conference on Semantics and Modelisation
(JSM06). The conference will be held at the University of Bordeaux I in Bordeaux
(France), on April 6 and 7, 2006. The goal of the conference is to promote
research on the representation of linguistic meaning and interpretation with the
help of formal models. In view of the development of corpus-based research in
semantics and related fields, proposals articulating the use of corpora and
representational problems in semantics and pragmatics are particularly welcome.

(The conference will be preceeded by a 3 day school in computational semantics,
with courses given in French.)
