Theory. This workshop is a part of International Conference
on "the Interface between Language and Cognition" to be held
at Keio University, March 26-March 29, 1996.

The workshop will consist of several talks in English selected
from submitted abstracts and special comments on them by
Prof. Deirdre Wilson (UCL). Individual presentation should be
timed to last 30 minutes, followed by a 10-minute discussion
period.

TOPICS:

 Papers on any topic in Relevance Theory are welcome, but
the principal topics of this workshop are:

 1.Interpretive use(resemblance/loose use/echoic use)
 2.Procedural meaning vs. Conceptual meaning
 (discourse connectives/particles)
 3.Disambiguation(enrichment/reference assignment)


SUBMISSION:

 Submissions for consideration must be received by
NOVEMBER 30,1995 via ordinary mail. Authors should send
three copies of a two- to four-page double-spaced abstract to
the workshop organizer at the address below. Papers for the
programme are selected by Organizer Committee. The paper
title, category of topic (eg. "Interpretive use"), author's name,
affiliation, complete address, phone number, and e-mail address
should be written on the top of the first page. Authors whose
abstracts are accepted will be requested to provide a more

 ACL-96 CALL FOR PAPERS ACL-96
 34th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics
 June 23 - 28, 1996
 University of California, Santa Cruz
 Santa Cruz, California, USA


TOPICS OF INTEREST
We would like to expand the participation in this conference to a wider
cross-section of the computational linguistics community. Thus we strongly
encourage the submission of papers on substantial, original, and unpublished
research on ALL aspects of computational linguistics, including, but not
limited to, pragmatics, discourse, semantics, syntax, and the lexicon;
phonetics, phonology, and morphology;interpreting and generating spoken and
written language;linguistic, mathematical, and psychological models of
language; language-oriented information retrieval; corpus-based and statistical
language modeling; machine translation and translation aids; natural language
interfaces and dialogue systems; message and narrative understanding systems;
and theoretical and applications papers of every kind. ADDITIONAL REVIEWERS
WILL BE SELECTED BY THE PROGRAM CHAIRS IF THE AREA OF A PAPER IS NOT ADEQUATELY
REPRESENTED BY THE PROGRAM COMMITTEE.

REQUIREMENTS
Papers should describe unique work; they should emphasize completed work rather
than intended work; and they should indicate clearly the state of completion
of the reported results. A paper accepted for presentation at the ACL Meeting
cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly
available proceedings.

Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must reflect this fact on
the title page and the identification page.

SUBMISSION FORMAT
Papers must not exceed 3200 words (exclusive of references). Hard copy or
electronic submissions must use the ACL submission style (aclsub.sty)
retrievable from the ACL LISTSERV server (access to which is described below)
which requires TeX 3.14 or LaTeX 2.09. Papers outside the specified length
and formatting requirements will be rejected without review. Since reviewing
will be blind, a title page and a separate identification page are required.
The title page should include paper title, summary, word count and topic
area specification (author names and addresses are omitted) and should be
affixed to the paper. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's
identity (e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...") should be avoided.
Instead use references like "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991)..." The
identification page should include the paper title, author(s) name(s),
complete addresses, a short (5 line) summary, a word count, a specification
of the topic area, document type (LaTeX or ascii; hardcopy or electronic), and
whether it has been submitted to other conferences.

A model submission (modelsub.tex) and a model identification page
(idpage.tex) are also provided on the ACL LISTSERV server, as well as
fullname.bst/fullname.sty system to be used for the bibliography. (Note however
that the bibliography for a submission cannot be submitted as a separate
.bib file; the actual bibliography entries must be inserted in the submitted
LaTeX source file.) Postscript figures following psfig.sty may be included.

Information on ACL-96 is also available on the ACL Homepage on the World Wide
Web at the following address: http://www.cs.columbia.edu/~acl


ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION
Electronic submissions may consist of simple ascii text, a uuencoded LaTeX
file, or the package produced by "aclpkg.script", which is available on the ACL
LISTSERV server. Submissions that include (possibly) separate postscript figure
files must be packaged using the aclpkg.script.Electronic paper submissions
should be sent to ACL96-submissionlinc.cis.upenn.edu, with the subject field
as "ACL-96 LaTeX submission" or "ACL-96 ascii submission." THE TEXT OF YOUR
MESSAGE SHOULD INCLUDE ONLY THE UUENCODED LATEX FILE, THE ASCII FILE, OR THE
OUTPUT OF ACLPKG.SCRIPT AND NO OTHER INFORMATION. The identification page
should be sent to ACL96-idpagelinc.cis.upenn.edu, with the subject field as
"ACL-96 Identification Page."

HARD COPY SUBMISSION
Six copies of the paper and one copy of the identification page (no fax
submissions) should be sent to:

ACL LISTSERV
LISTSERV is a facility set up at Columbia University's Department of Computer
Science to allow access to an electronic document archive by electronic
mail. Requests for files from the archive should be sent as e-mail messages to:

 listservcs.columbia.edu

with an empty subject field and the message body containing the request com-
mand. The most useful requests are "help" for general help on using LISTSERV,
"index ACL96" for the current contents of the ACL archive and
"get ACL96 <file>" to get a particular file named <file> from the archive.
For example, to get the ACL96 modelsub.tex file, send a message with the
following body:

 get ACL96 modelsub.tex

Answers to requests are returned by e-mail. Since the server may have many
requests for different archives to process, requests are queued up and may take
awhile (say, overnight) to be fulfilled. The ACL archive can also be accessed
by anonymous FTP. Here is an example of how to get the same file by FTP:

 $ ftp cs.columbia.edu
 Name(cs.columbia.edu:trisha): anonymous
 Password:trishacis.upenn.edu < not echoed >
 ftp> cd ACL96
 ftp> get modelsub.tex.Z
 ftp> quit
 $ uncompress modelsub.tex.Z
