 Call for Papers
 THIRD MEETING ON MATHEMATICS OF LANGUAGE (MOL3)
 November 13-14, 1992
 Austin, Texas, USA
 Sponsored by the
 Association for Mathematics of Language
 (A Special Interest Group of the
 Association for Computational Linguistics)
 Submissions are invited from all areas of study which deal
 with the mathematical properties of natural language. These
 areas include, but are not limited to, formal mathematical
 models of syntax, semantics, and/or phonology; computational
 complexity of natural language processing; mathematical
 theories of language learning; parsing theory; quantitative
 models of language.
 This is the third in a series of meetings on the mathematics
 of language. The first such meeting was held at the
 University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in October, 1984. The
 second was held near Yorktown Heights, N.Y. in May, 1991.
 It is anticipated that the papers from the meeting will be
 published after peer review in a collection or a special
 journal issue. No unrefereed proceedings are planned.
 Papers from MOL1 can be obtained as the volume Mathematics
 of Language edited by A. Manaster-Ramer and published by
 John Benjamins Publishing Co. Selected papers from MOL2
 will appear in a special issue of the Annals of Mathematics
 and Artificial Intelligence.
 All contributions to MOL3 are to be made electronically.
 We need all submissions to be received by us no later
 than June 30, 1992. Submissions should consist of an
 abstract of length equivalent to between two and five
 pages. The abstracts will be read and processed in
 electronic form, rather than being converted to hard copy.
 Therefore we ask that you submit a file without typesetting
 commands so that it can easily be read from a terminal
 screen. The addresses for submissions and other
 correspondence regarding the conference are
 MOL3UCSD.EDU
 MOL3UCSD.BITNET
 Authors will be notified around August 15, 1992, by
 electronic mail. Please enclose your e-mail address when
 you send in your abstract.
