 Twente Workshop on Language Technology 6



Final Announcement


 Date: 16 and 17 December 1993
 Location: "De Vrijhof", Enschede, the Netherlands

TWLT 6 is co-sponsored by ACL SIGPARSE, the Special Interest Group
on Parsing Technologies of the Association of Computational
Linguistics (ACL).


This is the sixth Twente Workshop on Language Technology organised
in Twente, a beautiful region in the Netherlands. Previous work-
shops have been on Tomita's Algorithm, Linguistic Engineering,
Connectionist Natural Language Processing, Pragmatics in Language
Technology and Natural Language Interfaces. In this international
workshop researchers on parsing technologies in computational
linguistics and those working at the borderline of computer
science and computational linguistics will get the opportunity to
present their research and discuss developments in parsing tech-

About TWLT6

Topics of TWLT6 include: parsing for spelling correction, head-
corner parsing and unification, the logical structure of language,
practical comparisons between parallel parsing algorithms, tree
adjoining grammar parsing, Definite Clause Grammar parsing,
multiple agents processing, comparison of ALE and PATR, parsing
ill-formed input, syntactic and semantic information from punc-
tuation, et cetera. The proceedings of the workshop will be
available during the workshop.
