Message 2: CFP: AISB96 Workshop: Multilinguality in the lexicon

Date: Wed, 01 Nov 1995 10:08:00 CFP: AISB96 Workshop: Multilinguality in the lexicon
From: Lynne Cahill <>
Subject: CFP: AISB96 Workshop: Multilinguality in the lexicon

 AISB96 Workshop: Multilinguality in the lexicon

 1st November 1995

Dates: 1st - 2nd April, 1996
Venue: University of Sussex, Brighton, UK
Organisers: Dr Lynne Cahill, University of Sussex
 Dr Roger Evans, University of Brighton


This workshop aims to bring together active researchers with an interest
in the issues surrounding multilingual aspects of lexicons.
Traditionally, multilingual issues in the lexicon have primarily been a
concern of applied NLP research, notably machine translation and more
recently multilingual generation; the recent upsurge of work on more
theoretical aspects of lexical representation has focussed on a
monolingual view. However, these two strands are now beginning to come
together: theoreticians are branching out into multilingual issues, and
applied researchers are beginning to exploit some of the newer
developments in lexical representation. This workshop provides an
opportunity for lexical practitioners of all sorts to focus on the
particular problems and questions associated with multilingual lexical

Papers are invited on any aspects of multilinguality in the lexicon
including but not limited to: pragmatics, semantics, syntax, morphology,
phonology, orthography; machine translation, generation, understanding;
bilingual and multilingual issues; related and unrelated languages;
issues of representation and access. In addition, we invite proposals to
demonstrate working systems.


Extended abstracts (up to 5 A4 pages) and demonstration proposals (up to
2 A4 pages) should be submitted to Lynne Cahill either electronically
(our preference) in plain ASCII text or LaTeX, or hard copy (three
copies). Submission deadline is 18th December. Authors will be notified
of acceptance by 15th January. Final papers will be due 1st March.
