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: Second Call for Papers

http://cswww.essex.ac.uk/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
Ruth Filik, University of Glasgow
Alan Garnham, University of Sussex
Klaus von Heusinger, University of Stuttgart
Véronique Hoste, University of Antwerp
Christer Johansson, University of Bergen

Ruslan Mitkov, University of Wolverhampton
Christoph Müller, EML Research
Rebecca Passonneau, Columbia University
Tanya Reinhart, Tel Aviv University
Tony Sanford, University of Glasgow
Patrick Sturt, University of Edinburgh
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

Meeting Description:

This conference will tackle different aspects of learning written language using four topics:
1. Written words identification.
2. Written words or text comprehension.
3. Graphical gesture production.
4. Orthographic production.
Results of the researches leaded until now allow us to have a more precise view of the processings involved but one can however regret the fact that they most of the time stay apart and that they are not interested in the way the specifities of the writing (grapho-phonological, morphological, syntactical...) interact into the setting of these habilities. This conference will be an opportunity to bring a new point of view on the maner the learners learn written language.

CONFERENCE TITLE: Cognitive approach in learning written language

DATES: october 19th-20th, 2006
LOCATION: University of Rennes 2 Haute Bretagne, France
CONFERENCE TYPE: International conference

Four symposiums will be organized, each of them addressing a particular topic. Each symposium lasts half a day and is opened by an invited conference (lasting from 45 minutes to one hour) followed by a session of four oral communications (selected by the scientific commitee). Each oral communication will not last more than 20 minutes.

Symposium ( written words identification ) :
Invited speaker : Prof. Alain CONTENT (Responsable du LAPSE - Faculté des Sciences Psychologiques et de l'Education - Laboratoire de Psychologie expérimentale - Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgique) - Temporary title : « Analyse des mécanismes de lecture chez les enfants ».

Symposium ( comprehension ) :
Invited speaker : Prof. Jane OAKHILL (Laboratory of Experimental Psychology, University of Sussex, Royaume Uni) - Temporary title : « Comprehension skill».

Symposium ( graphical gesture production ) :
Invited speaker : Prof. Pascal ZESIGER (Faculté de psychologie et des sciences de l'éducation - Université de Genève, Suisse) - Temporary title :
( Apprendre à écrire )

Symposium ( orthographic production ) :
Invited speaker : Prof. Michel FAYOL (Responsable du Laboratoire de Psychologie Sociale et Cognitive (LAPSCO - Université Blaise Pascal - Clermont-Ferrand 2, France) - Temporary title : ( Acquérir l'orthographe du français : Apprentissages implicites et explicites )

Closing : Prof. Jean- Emile GOMBERT (Directeur du CRPCC - Université Rennes 2 Haute Bretagne)

2 -POSTER SESSION A poster session will take place meanwhile and is addressed in particular to young researchers (master, DEA, PhD) but not exclusively. Communications could address all of the topics concerning the learnings and development of the child.

LANGUAGE
Communications could be done in french or in english.

TOPICS AND SUBMISSION PROCESS OF PROPOSALS
We are inviting you to submit communication proposals in the following fields:
1. involved processings in the setting of the reading process : from written words identification to written words or text comprehension ;
2. involved processings in the setting of written word production procedures : from graphical gesture to orthographic code.
Proposals will have to present data from observations/experimentations involving one or more languages. They could address children or adults populations learning a first or a second language. Studies lead on atypical populations (auditive deficients, intelectual deficients, motor deficients, people presenting troubles in learning written words) would also be appreciated.

Each proposal (for an oral or displayed communication) will be sent at colloque-ecritwanadoo.fr in rtf format and will have to contain :
A first page with the following informations :
- nature of the submission requested by the authors : oral communication vs displayed communication,
- names of the authors and their affiliation,
- postal and email addresses of the first author as well as his phone number,
- title (in French and in English)
- keywords list (in French and in English)
A second page containing the title and the text of the proposal (600 words maximum - in French or in English).
