 International Conference on computational linguistics and its

Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to inform you about DIALOGUE'96, an international
conference on computational linguistics and its applications, which
will take place in the very end of April or the beginning of May, 1996
in a country side near Moscow, Russia (exact dates will be determined
at the end of the year). The conference revived the tradition of the
interdisciplinary DIALOGUE seminars which were regular national annual
events in the USSR during 70s-80s. The conference title means that it
is a meeting place for a dialogue:
a) between researchers from different fields that are related to
 computational linguistics (lignuists, computer scientists,
 cognitive scientists, psychologists);
b) between researchers from the former USSR and from the international
 community in computational linguistics.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* theoretical and cognitive linguistics
* syntax, semantics, pragmatics and their interaction
* multilingual natural language processing
* systems for natural language processing
* text, dialogue and speech act in the computational framework
* speech communication with computer

The number of participants is expected about 100. Every prospective
attendee is required to submit a short research summary including
relevant recent publications, regular and e-mail address, fax and
phone numbers.

Participants who wish to present their work are additionally required
to submit a poster (3-4 double-spaced pages, 6-8 kB) or a full paper
(not exceeding 12 double-spaced pages, 24 kB). Please send
submissions preferably via e-mail (in plain ASCII or uuencoded Winword
files) to the address of the Program Committee before January 15,
1996. Submissions in Russian and English are equally accepted. We
plan to organize selected English-to-Russian and Russian-to-English
translation of talks.

 Addresses for all correspondence:
Snail mail:
 Russian Instititue of Artificial Intelligence
 P.O.Box 111, Moscow,
 103001, Russia.

 Deadline for submission: January 15, 1996
 Notification of acceptance: February 15, 1996
 Final paper due: March 25, 1996

The proceedings of the conference will be printed and publicly

The last conference DIALOGUE'95 has been held nearby Kazan (Tatarstan,
Russian Federation) in May-June 1995. It was very successful and
attracted the leading researchers from the former USSR as well as
researchers from Europe and USA. We hope that DIALOGUE'96 will
continue this tradition.
