Meeting Description:

CNL 2009 Workshop on Controlled Natural Languages
Marettimo Island, Sicily (Italy)
8-10 June 2009

The workshop CNL 2009 is dedicated to discussing the similarities and
differences of existing controlled natural languages, possible improvements to
these languages, relations to other knowledge representation languages, tool
support, existing and future applications, and further topics of interest.

The workshop will take place on the Italian island Marettimo at the
Marettimo Residence (http://www.marettimoresidence.com/inglese/home.php) that
consists of a set of two-story houses within a beautiful garden. On top of the
garden of the residence there is a large lecture hall with wireless internet.

Marettimo is the outermost of the Egadian Islands to the west of Sicily, and is
easily reached from the airports of Palermo and Trapani. Marettimo offers the
simple and relaxed life of southern Italy, unspoilt landscape, stupendous views,
hiking, swimming, diving, boat trips, and excursions on donkeys. There are
several restaurants and bars, and some shops. What the island does not offer:
traffic - there are practically no roads - fancy shops and restaurants,
nightlife, and sandy beaches.

The Marettimo Residence
http://www.marettimoresidence.com/inglese/home.php) offers one- and
two-bedroom apartments with fully equipped kitchens. A number of apartments for
the participants of CNL 2009 will be reserved until early 2009 at a price 10%
below the regular price. Participants should get into direct contact with the
Marettimo Residence to organise their accommodation. Alternative accommodations
on Marettimo can be found via the internet.

Conference Dinner:
A conference dinner will be arranged during the workshop, and will be
paid individually by the participants.

The workshop will be informal with lots of time for presentations and
discussions in the fashion of the seminars organized at Dagstuhl in
Germany (http://www.dagstuhl.de/programm/dagstuhl-seminare). To ensure
the informal atmosphere the number of participants will be limited.
