Meeting Description:

SHEL-4, the fourth annual conference on Studies in the History of the English
Language will be held at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff Arizona on
September 30, October 1 and 2, 2005.

Faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars are invited to submit
abstracts for 20-minute papers on any linguistic or philological aspect of the
history of English. We welcome papers from a range of linguistic and
philological subfields, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax,
semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, stylistics, metrics, discourse
analysis, corpus linguistics, language acquisition, contact, and change, as well
as differing theoretical and methodological perspectives, are welcome. We are
planning to host two workshops, on corpus linguistics and on pedagogy
respectively. We welcome proposals for workshop presentations.

Abstracts and proposals for 20-minute workshop presentations are due June 1,
2005. Abstracts can be submitted in hard copy through regular mail, but
submission as e-mail attachments would be strongly preferred. All abstracts will
undergo anonymous review. If you send the abstract as an attachment or in hard
copy, please include on a separate page, author name and contact info, as well
as the paper title; include only a title but no author information on the
abstract itself. Please send abstracts as PDF files if they contain any
specialized fonts.

Send abstracts to:

Meeting Description:

2nd CALL FOR PAPERS

LACL'2005 is the 5th edition of a series of international conferences on logical
and formal methods in computational linguistics. It addresses in particular the
use of proof theoretic and model theoretic methods for describing natural
language syntax and semantics, as well as the implementation of natural language
processing software relying on such models.

STUDENT SESSION

For the first time, LACL'2005 will feature a student session. Students (not
having defended yet their PhD thesis or defending it in 2005) are invited to
submit short papers (2 or 3 pages) on the same topics as LACL. Submitted papers
may present only partial but promising work.

This student session offers a good opportunity for students to acquaint
themselves with the world of research : digest writing exercise, feedback from
the program committee, oral presentation exercise, feedback from LACL attendants.

Students whose articles will be selected for the student session will benefit
from reduced registration fees for the LACL conference.

PAPER SELECTION

Submitted articles will be reviewed by a program committee made of a a group of
experienced researcher as well as a group of chosen PhD students. Each article
will be reviewed by at least one experienced researcher and one of these PhD
students.

PAPER PRESENTATION

Students whose papers will be selected will present their work in a poster
session at the LACL conference. The papers will also be grouped and edited as an
INRIA research report.

TOPICS

Computer scientists, linguists, mathematicians and philosophers are invited to
present their work on the use of logical methods in computational linguistics
and natural language processing, in natural language analysis, generation or
acquisition.

* LOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF SYNTACTIC FORMALISMS:
- categorial grammars,
- minimalist grammars,
- dependency grammars,
- tree adjoining grammars,
- model theoretic syntax,
- formal language theory for natural language processing,
- data-driven approaches,
* LOGIC FOR SEMANTICS OF LEXICAL ITEMS, SENTENCES, DISCOURSE AND DIALOG:
- discourse representation theory,
- Montague semantics,
- compositionality,
- dynamic logic,
- game semantics,
- situation semantics,
- generative lexicon,
* APPLICATIONS OF THESE MODELS TO NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING:
- software for natural language analysis,
- software for acquiring linguistic resources,
- software for natural language generation,
- software for information extraction,
- question answering and human computer interaction in natural language,
- evaluation and scalability

SUBMISSION FORMAT

Papers are be 2 to 3 pages long, including bibliography and possible figures and
appendices. Articles, in PDF format, should be sent by email to lacllabri.fr,
with the keywords ''student session'' in the mail subject.
