Meeting Description

Conference 'Theoretical and Computational Perspectives on Underspecification'

Hosted by the SFB 732 'Incremental specification in context' at the
University of Stuttgart (Germany)

November 2-3, 2007

The SFB 732 Incremental specification in context, established in July 2006,
brings together scientists from the areas of linguistics, computational
linguistics and signal processing at the University of Stuttgart. Their common
scientific goals are to achieve a better understanding of the mechanisms that
lead to ambiguity control/disambiguation as well as the enrichment of
missing/incomplete information and to develop methods that are able to fully
describe these mechanisms. The basic hypothesis in the SFB is that such
processes generally involve specification of an underspecified input.

As part of the SFB's effort to further external links, this conference aims
to bring together researchers from all areas of theoretical and computational
linguistics who are working on issues related to underspecification.

We are particularly interested in investigating the question of when and
where underspecification is a linguistically legitimate way of dealing with
ambiguity.

We therefore invite unpublished contributions from all fields of linguistics
(including syntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonology, morphology, phonetics,
computational linguistics, processing).

We are pleased to have the following invited speakers:

Rens Bod (St. Andrews)
Rita Manzini (Florence)
