CSSP welcomes papers combining empirical inquiry and formal explicitness.
The conference aims at favouring comparisons between different theoretical
frameworks.

The 7th Syntax and Semantics Conference in Paris (CSSP 2007) will take place
on October 4th-6th, 2007.

CSSP conferences combine a general session and a thematic session.

General Session:

submissions for the general session may address any topic on
- syntax
- semantics
- the syntax-semantics interface.

Thematic Session:

the thematic session will focus on
The syntax and semantics of comparison

CSSP 2007 invites submissions for 20-minute presentations (plus ten-minute
discussions). Abstracts should be at most 2 pages in length (including
examples and references) written in French or English.
Please adhere to the page limit.
The same person may submit at most one abstract as a sole author
and one as a co-author.

Abstracts must be anonymous and should be sent by e-mail (plain ASCII, rtf, ps or pdf) to:
infocssp.cnrs.fr
Write the (first) author's name plus the word 'abstract' in the
subject line of your message (e.g., 'Dupont abstract'), and include
author name(s), affiliation, contact information and the title of the abstract in the body of the email.
For co-authored papers indicate the email address that we should use for correspondence.

Preference will be given to presentations that are not duplicated at other major conferences. Therefore please indicate prior or planned presentations of the paper when submitting your abstract.

Abstracts should reach us by April 30, 2007.

Message 2: 2nd International Workshop on Typed Feature Structure Grammars

Subject: 2nd International Workshop on Typed Feature Structure Grammars

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2007

Meeting Description:

The 2nd International Workshop on Typed Feature Structure Grammars (TFSG'07). The workshop is part of The 16th Nordic Conference of Computational Linguistics, May 24-26 2007 in Tartu, Estonia. The workshop itself takes place May 24.

The linguistics and natural language engineering community has regained
interest in typed feature structure grammars in the recent years. In
particular, efficient parsing algorithms have stimulated the development
of broad-coverage computational grammars for a variety of languages. The
development of these resources have raised a number of empirical and
computational questions. TFSG'07 is a forum in which these questions can
be asked and, maybe, answered.

Typed feature structure grammars include, for instance, construction
grammar (CG), head-driven phrase structure grammar (HPSG) and some
versions of categorical grammar (e.g. i-CCG). This workshop is intended
for linguists who employ these theories in linguistic analysis or
natural language engineering, or who investigate their formal and
computational properties. Papers may address

* the linguistic or computational (dis-)advantages of typed feature
structure-based formalisms, incl. CG, HPSG and i-CCG, and comparisons of
such formalisms with other linguistic theories,
* the comparison of theories and computational implementations of
typed feature structures, and
* the design and evaluation of implemented grammars and resources
of relevance to typed feature structure grammars.

In other words, the organizers and the program committee are especially
interested in papers that present linguistic phenomena whose analysis in
typed feature structure grammars is more adequate or more efficient (or
less adequate or less efficient) than standard analyses; we also
encourage papers that present substantial work on implementations of, or
resources for, typed feature structure grammars. Comparisons of CG,
HPSG, i-CCG and other theories are also welcome. Finally, the workshop
is open to papers on the formal and computational properties of typed
feature structure grammars, incl. complexity, learnability, and portability.

The program committee includes (the list is not yet exhaustive): Emily
Bender (University of Washington), Detmar Meurers (Ohio State
University), Stefan Müller (Universität Bremen and Universität
Pottsdam), Carl Pollard (Ohio State University), Manfred Sailer
(Universität Göttingen), Jesse Tseng (CNRS Loria) and Ben Waldron
(Cambridge University og Norwegian University of Science and Technology).

The maximum length of the abstracts is six (6) pages. Submit an
anonymous PDF file. Please use ACL style files. Contact information
should be included in the e-mail text. E-mail the abstract and any
questions you may have, to anderscst.dk.

Submission deadline: March 1 2007.
Notification of acceptance: April 1 2007.

The workshop is organized by Anders Søgaard, University of Copenhagen,
and Petter Haugereid, Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
