 SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTATIONAL SEMANTICS

 Sponsored by the European Foundation
 of Logic, Language and Information

 With support from the
 Commission of the European Communities, DG XIII

Recent developments in both theoretical and computational semantics
suggest that there is now a real possibility for exploring high level
computational techniques for dealing with meaning in natural language
which are informed by semantic theory but which are not restricted
to any particular theoretical approach (e.g. quantifier scoping algorithms,
semantic operators of the kind proposed by Johnson and Kay). This
symposium will attempt to explore the relationship between current
work in theoretical and computational semantics. Papers will be
presented by researchers in both theoretical and computational
semantics and there will be ample time for discussion from the floor.
Invited speakers are:

Hiyan Alshawi, SRI, Cambridge
Johan van Benthem, University of Amsterdam (to be confirmed)
Robin Cooper, University of Edinburgh
Hans Kamp, Stuttgart University
Remko Scha, University of Amsterdam
