processing; special emphasis is laid on interaction of machine learning
techniques and logical methods.

ILINTEC'2006 is a unique opportunity to discuss the problems of natural language
processing in immediate contact with the leading research and development teams
from universities and industry engaged in information technology projects and
various fields of Computer Science.

The ILINTEC'2006 Workshop will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort hotel, Las
Vegas, Nevada, USA, as one of the events of the 2006 World Congress in Computer
Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing. All accepted papers will
be published in the conference proceedings by CSREA Press (Computer Science

Message 2: Ambiguity in Anaphora
Date: 14-Dec-2005
From: Ron Artstein <artsteinessex.ac.uk>
Subject: Ambiguity in Anaphora



Full Title: Ambiguity in Anaphora

Date: 07-Aug-2006 - 11-Aug-2006
Location: Málaga, Spain
Contact Person: Ron Artstein
Meeting Email: anaphoraessex.ac.uk
Web Site: http://cswww.essex.ac.uk/Research/nle/anaphora/

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Linguistic
Theories; Psycholinguistics; Semantics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 08-Mar-2006

Meeting Description:

A workshop on ambiguity in anaphora, which aims to create a dialogue between
researchers who work on anaphoric ambiguity from a variety of perspectives, for
instance theoretical, computational, and psycholinguistic. The workshop is held
at ESSLLI 2006, the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information.

Ambiguity in Anaphora: Call for Papers

http://cswww.essex.ac.uk/Research/nle/anaphora/

7-11 August 2006, Málaga, Spain.

A workshop held as part of ESSLLI 2006, the Eighteenth European Summer
School in Logic, Language and Information.

Deadline for receipt of five-page extended abstracts: 8 March 2006
Address for submission: anaphoraessex.ac.uk

Organizers

Ron Artstein, Massimo Poesio (University of Essex)

Description

We invite extended abstracts for 45-minute presentations (including
discussion) relating to ambiguity in anaphora. Anaphoric expressions
such as pronouns and definite descriptions can be ambiguous: they may
relate to more than one antecedent, or (potentially) denote more than
one referent. Such ambiguity poses challenges to the representation
of anaphoric relations in grammar and discourse and to computational
algorithms which resolve anaphoric reference, all of which should
allow for representing ambiguity.

The workshop aims to create a dialogue between researchers who work on
anaphoric ambiguity from a variety of perspectives, such as:

- Theoretical studies of the representation of ambiguous anaphoric
relations in syntax and semantics;
- Discourse models which represent referential ambiguity;
- Computational studies on the annotation and resolution of
anaphoric ambiguity;
- Psychological studies on the interpretation of ambiguous anaphoric
expressions;
- Studies of anaphoric expressions and anaphora antecedents which
are not noun phrases.

We especially welcome studies that cross disciplinary boundaries and
look at anaphoric ambiguity from multiple viewpoints.

Submission

Deadline for receipt of extended abstracts: 8 March 2006
Address for submission: anaphoraessex.ac.uk

Extended abstracts should conform to the following guidelines.

- Maximum five (5) pages, including data/tables/figures/references.
- Anonymous; do not identify the author via self-reference.
- First paragraph should be a brief summary of the entire work.
- A4 or letter size paper, 12 point font, 2.5 cm / 1 inch margins.
- PDF file format, with all fonts embedded.

Submit your extended abstracts as email attachments. In the body
of the message include the paper title and the authors' names and
affiliations, as well as the email address for the corresponding
author.

Address for submission: anaphoraessex.ac.uk

Review

Submissions will be reviewed by an international committee of
theoretical linguists, computational linguists and psycholinguists.

Jennifer Arnold, University of North Carolina
Chris Barker, University of California, San Diego
Kees van Deemter, University of Aberdeen
Paul Elbourne, University of Manchester
Alan Garnham, University of Sussex
Klaus von Heusinger, University of Stuttgart
Véronique Hoste, University of Antwerp
Christer Johansson, University of Bergen
Elsi Kaiser, University of Southern California
Ruslan Mitkov, University of Wolverhampton
Christoph Müller, EML Research
Rebecca Passonneau, Columbia University
Tanya Reinhart, Tel Aviv University
Bonnie Webber, University of Edinburgh

Selection will be strictly by quality, and there are no quotas based
on discipline; we hope to get a mix of papers from a variety of
viewpoints.

Proceedings

Final versions of the accepted papers, slightly longer than the
extended abstracts, will be distributed in a summer school reader.
If there is sufficient interest among the contributors, we intend
to approach a journal for publication as a special issue.

Workshop format

The workshop is part of ESSLLI and attendance is open to all ESSLLI
participants. It will consist of five sessions of 90 minutes each,
held over five consecutive days in the second week of ESSLLI. Each
session will consist of two 45-minute presentations (including time
for questions and discussion).

Registration

All workshop contributors will be required to register for ESSLLI
2006. The registration fee for authors presenting a paper will
correspond to the early student registration fee.

A number of additional fee-waiver grants might be made available
by the ESSLLI local organizing committee on a competitive basis
and workshop participants are eligible to apply for those.

There will be no reimbursement for travel costs or accommodation.
Workshop speakers who have difficulty in finding funding should
contact the ESSLLI local organizing committee to ask for the
possibilities of a grant.

Important Dates

8 March, 2006: Deadline for receipt of extended abstracts
21 April, 2006: Notification of acceptance
1 May, 2006: Final version due for the proceedings
7-11 August, 2006: Workshop
