Ambiguity in Anaphora: Final Call for Papers

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


The workshop is held as part of ESSLLI 2006, the Eighteenth European
Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, 7-11 August 2006,
Málaga, Spain.


Ron Artstein, Massimo Poesio (University of Essex)


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
* 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.


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

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

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).


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.
