Meeting Description:

Final Call For Papers, Extended Deadline

This track is intended an interdisciplinary and
open-ended initiation to a discussion of philosophical
and other issues related to language technology and
computational linguistics. As these issues have so far
not recieved a lot of attention, we encourage anyone
who is interested to submit a paper even if it does not
report on a major research effort. We are open to all
kinds of papers including philosophical and conceptual
discussions as well as empirical and system-building
efforts.

Possible topics include but are by no means limited to:

* The Philosophy of Computational Linguistics
* Philosophical aspects of current research in
computational linguistics
* Embodied, interactive and emergent approaches to
Computational Linguistics
* The interaction between computational linguistics
and philosophy
* Current research on the border between philosophy
and computational linguistics
* Computational Linguistics as science vs. technology
* Computational Linguistics, Language Technology,
and Society
* Cyberlinguistics? Language Technology devices as
prostheses

Call for Papers and Registration

Phraseology 2005

THE MANY FACES OF PHRASEOLOGY
AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE

Universite catholique de Louvain
Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium
13-15 October 2005

Conference website: http://cecl.fltr.ucl.ac.be/PHRASEO/phraseology2005.html

The conference is organized jointly by the Centre for English Corpus
Linguistics and the Centre d'etude des lexiques romans at the University of
Louvain.

The last few years have seen an explosion of interest in Phraseology, which
has gone from being a relatively fringe discipline to playing a central
role in a wide range of linguistic disciplines such as Lexicography,
Contrastive Linguistics, Psycholinguistics, Foreign Language Learning and
Teaching and Natural Language Processing.

The aim of this conference is thus to enable researchers working in the
field of Phraseology to meet other researchers who are studying the same
types of expressions from perhaps quite different perspectives.

Conference themes

1. Theoretical approaches (phraseology within linguistic theory)
2. Descriptive approaches (typology; descriptions of different types of
phraseological units; synchronic and diachronic variation)
3. Contrastive approaches (comparisons of phraseological expressions across
a number of languages)
4. Psycholinguistic approaches (the acquisition, comprehension and
production of phraseological expressions)
5. Lexicographical approaches (monolingual and bilingual lexicography)
6. Educational approaches (the role of phraseological units in language
learning and teaching)
7. Computational approaches (automatic extraction of phraseological units)
