Call for Participation

CNL 2010
2nd Workshop on Controlled Natural Languages

Marettimo Island, Sicily (Italy)
13-15 September 2010

Controlled natural languages (CNLs) are subsets of natural languages, obtained
by restricting the grammar and vocabulary in order to reduce or eliminate
ambiguity and complexity. Traditionally, controlled languages fall into two
major types: those that improve readability for human readers (e.g. non-native
speakers), and those that enable reliable automatic semantic analysis of the

The workshop will be informal with plenty of time for presentations and
discussions. To ensure the informal atmosphere the number of participants will
be limited.

Workshop Programme

A full programme (http://staff.um.edu.mt/mros1/cnl2010/prog.html) of refereed
papers and invited tutorial presentations is now online. Details are available
on the conference website.


The workshop will take place on the Italian island Marettimo at the Marettimo
Residence (www.marettimoresidence.com/inglese/home.php). This consists of a set
of two-storey houses set 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, night
life, and sandy beaches.


The Marettimo Residence (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 2010 will be reserved until 15 July 2010
at a price 10% below the regular price. Participants should get into direct
contact with the Marettimo Residence to organise their accommodation, citing
'CNL 2010' and the names of the organisers when claiming the reduced price.
Please indicate the length of your stay – perhaps you want to bring your family
for additional days of vacation – and whether you would like to share your
apartment with another participant of CNL 2010. The Marettimo Residence can also
organise your transfers from and to the airports of Palermo or Trapani.


There is no registration fee for CNL 2010.

Participants should contact the Marettimo Residence for accommodation until 15
July 2010. Alternative accommodations on Marettimo can be found via the
internet, for instance by googling for 'case vacanze Marettimo'.

Once your accommodation is confirmed, please send the registration form
(http://staff.um.edu.mt/mros1/cnl2010/registration.html) to the organisers.

Workshop dinner

A workshop dinner will be arranged during the workshop, and will be paid
individually by the participants.
