Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Phonology

Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2007

Meeting Description:

Second International Symposium on Prosody - Discourse Interfaces
The symposium is addressed to researchers interested in the complex relations between prosodic and discursive facts, within the areas of discourse, verbal interaction and prosody.

The aim of the symposium is to allow researchers working in the areas of discourse, verbal interaction and prosody to present the latest developments in their research on the interfaces between these domains. The Symposium will focus on a limited number of topics
- Prosodies and their compositionality
- Units for prosody / units for discourse
- Prosody and context(s)
- Prosodic transfers from L1 to L2

We invite anonymous abstracts of a maximum length of 3000 characters including spaces (one page) in Word or PDF format.
Abstracts should be sent to: idp07lettres.unige.ch by March 1st 2007
April 1st 2007: Notification of acceptance/rejection and of the type of presentation recommended (poster or oral presentation).
June 1st 2007: Deadline for submission of the camera-ready papers for the pre-proceedings.

Call Deadline: 05-Jan-2007

Meeting Description:

Workshop on Computational Linguistics in Human-Computer Interaction (CL-HCI 2007)
Deadline Extended to Jan. 5/2007

All accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Selected papers will also be published as special issues of appropriate journals.

Processing natural language -- arguably the most complex and higher level human-specific aspect -- is a very challenging topic in Computational Science.

For a more advanced and evolved next-generation human-computer interaction (HCI) system, it is indispensable to integrate with it natural language processing (NLP) interface. To interpret and understand a user's intended command from his/her speech signal, series of processes such as speech recognition, parsing, semantic analysis, word sense disambiguation, etc. need to be performed. The proposed workshop focuses on such research topics common in Computational Linguistics and HCI. The workshop will provide also an opportunity for discussing and sharing participants' research experiences and outcomes.
