EACL 2006 Workshop on
Making Sense of Sense: Bringing Psycholinguistics and Computational Linguistics
Together

April 4, 2006, Trento, Italy

http://www.cs.vassar.edu/~ide/EACL06WS/

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

The EACL 2006 Workshop on Making Sense of Sense: Bringing Psycholinguistics and
Computational Linguistics Together will be hosted in conjunction with the 11th
Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational
Linguistics that will take place April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, italy.

- TOPICS

Although research on lexical ambiguity has a long history in the field of
psycholinguistics, work in this area is rarely considered in debates concerned
with identifying relevant sense distinctions for NLP. Recent research in the
field of psycholinguistics may offer significant insight into the sense
distinctions that humans readily recognize. This workshop will explore
approaches to the problem of sense distinction from the viewpoint of both
computational linguists and psycholinguists, in order to bring the work in each
field to bear on the problem.

The University of Sheffield is the leading centre for the study of the history
of linguistics in the UK and is proud to be hosting the 2006 annual conference
of the Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas. The programme
will encompass topics on the full range of periods and of linguistic thought and
practice.

The 2006 Colloquium of the Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic
Ideas will be held from Thursday 7 September to Sunday 10 September 2006 at the
University of Sheffield, UK. The Leslie Seiffert Memorial Lecture will be
delivered by Peter Burke, Professor of Cultural History at the University of
Cambridge and author of Language and Communities in Early Modern Europe. The
conference will overlap with a symposium on Linguistics and Social Theory in the
USSR 1917-38, details of which will be forthcoming at
http://www.shef.ac.uk/uni/academic/A-C/bakh/sociolinguistics.html. Those
attending the HSS Colloquium will be welcome to enrol in this symposium and vice
versa.

Sheffield University is the leading centre for the study of the history of
linguistics in the United Kingdom, offering undergraduate, Master's level and
PhD-level teaching in this area. The City of Sheffield is located centrally in
the United Kingdom, and is very accessible by air, train or road. International
airports in close proximity to Sheffield include Manchester, East Midlands, and
Robin Hood Sheffield-Doncaster, and Sheffield is two hours north of London by
train. Sheffield has witnessed a great deal of regeneration in recent years and
is now a vibrant and attractive city, surrounded by some of the most stunning
countryside in England.

Accommodation and meals will be provided at Ranmoor House, a hall of residence
15-minute walk or 5-minute bus journey from the main University site. There
will also be the option of staying in nearby hotel accommodation, and all the
options will be indicated on the booking form, which will be available, along
with further information about the conference, on the Society website in early 2006.

Papers (30 minutes, including discussion) are invited on any aspect of the
history of linguistic thought or practice. Ideas for themed sessions or panel
discussions are also very welcome. All proposals, including title and abstract
(max. 250 words) should be sent to Fiona Marshall (f.c.marshallshef.ac.uk) by
31 January 2006. Notification of acceptance of proposals will be made by 31
March 2006.
