Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories; Morphology; Semantics; Syntax

Call Deadline: 18-Mar-2007

Meeting Description:

The aim of this workshop is to establish greater awareness of the benefit of different empirical approaches to the study of morphological case, the insights that such studies provide, and how they inform theoretical models. The workshop is part of the LSA Summer Institute, Stanford, CA.

**Please note revised dates for the workshop and deadlines***

In recent years, new and varied approaches to the empirical study of morphological case have significantly increased our understanding of this empirical phenomenon. These approaches have informed more refined theoretical models which necessarily address interface questions, especially the interface of morphological case with semantics. Such studies may rely on corpora, experimental evidence, and the investigation of (synchronic and diachronic) variation and how it bears on synchronic analyses.

The aim of this workshop is to establish greater awareness of the benefit of different empirical approaches to the study of case, the insights that such studies provide, and how they inform theoretical models. Possible research questions may include, but need not be limited to, the following:

- expanding our understanding of case phenomena through novel empirical methods
- investigating how morphological case interfaces with other aspects of the grammar
- hypothesizing on how this interface should be modelled theoretically

Invited presentations will be given by:
Andrew Spencer (Essex)
Miriam Butt (Konstanz)
Joan Maling (Brandeis) and Jong Sup Jun (Hankuk)

Abstract Guidelines:
We are soliciting abstracts for 25 minute talks relevant to any of the topics mentioned above. Abstracts should be in 11pt font, or larger, consisting of one text page with a second page (only) for data, examples, charts, and references. Abstracts should be submitted electronically in Word (.doc) or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format to: case07gmail.com. The author(s) of the abstract should not be identified in the abstract itself; the body of the submission message should include the title of the abstract, the names(s) of the author(s), the(ir) affiliation, and e-mail address(es).

*Deadline* for submission: March 18th, 2007. The conference program will be announced as early as possible in early April.

As there will be special sessions for discussion of the papers, we will ask that you provide us with an outline of your paper in advance of the workshop, no later than July 7th.

Important dates:
March 18 - Abstracts due (send to: case07gmail.com)
April 1 - Notification of acceptance
July 7 - Outline of papers due (send to: case07gmail.com)
July 25 - Workshop

We plan to collect as many papers from the workshop as possible for publication with a major publisher on the theme of new empirical approaches to morphological case.

More information about the workshop, including the final program, will be posted on the workshop's website in due course: http://www.unr.edu/homepage/donohue/case

For any questions about the workshop, please email your queries to either of the organizers:
Cathryn Donohue (donohueunr.edu) or Jóhanna Barðdal (johanna.barddaluib.no.).

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 26-Jan-2007

Meeting Description:

11th Panhellenic Conference in Informatics
Special Track on Web Search and Mining

Call For Papers

The Web is constantly growing to become a central part of cultural, educational, social and commercial life. Millions of users today access the Web looking for information on a multitude of topics, reading the news, writing about their experiences in blogs, searching for products and services etc.
This explosive growth of the Web has created an ever-increasing volume of data which are heterogeneous and semi-structured in nature. Search engines are facing great challenges while assisting the users find useful information. Such challenges are related to efficiently searching and accessing Web data, organizing them in an intuitive way and mining and extracting knowledge from them.

For the Web Search and Mining track, we invite original submissions addressing the challenging aspects of Web search and mining, including but not limited to the following:

* Mining Web content and link structure
* Web usage mining and traffic analysis
* Personalized Web search, building user profiles and recommendations
* Use of social networks in Web search
* New methods for organizing (e.g. clustering and classifying) Web data
* Summarization of Web data and multi-faceted search
* Distributed and peer-to-peer search
* Meta-search and rank aggregation
* Linguistic analysis and Web mining
* Search engine design and architecture: crawling, indexing and ranking of Web data
* Searching and mining the Hidden Web
* Web knowledge representation
* User interfaces to facilitate search
* Web data integration and data cleaning

Paper Submission

Papers should not exceed 8 pages and should adhere to the formatting requirements (http://pci2007.upatras.gr/submissions/GuideLines_PCI2007.doc) provided in the submission page of the main conference: http://pci2007.upatras.gr/submissions/

Papers in .pdf or .ps format should be sent via e-mail to the special session chairs:
