 Special Interest Group on Parsing

 The Third international Workshop on Parsing Technologies
 (IWPT'93) will take place this year on August 10 through 13.
 Like IWPT'89, this workshop will take place in two locations:
 on August 10-11 on the premises of Tilburg University in
 Tilburg, in the South of The Netherlands; the workshop then
 moves to the of a resort in the Ardennes in Durbuy, Belgium.

 Topics of interest include:
 Theoretical and practical studies of parsing algorithms for
 natural language sentences, texts, fragments, dialogues,
 ill-formed sentences, speech input, and multi-dimensional
 (pictorial) language.

 Workshop Chairman: Harry Bunt (Tilburg)

 General Chairman: Masaru Tomita (Pittsburgh)

 Program Committee: Robert Berwick, Harry Bunt, Ken Church,
 Aravind Joshi,Ronald Kaplan, Martin Kay,
 Bernard Lang, Makoto Nagao, Anton Nijholt,
 Mark Steedman, Henry Thompson, Masaru Tomita,
 K. Vijay-Shanker, Yorick Wilks, Kent Wittenburg
