 August 21-25, 1995
 in the framework of the
 VII European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information

 In 1995 the Seventh European Summer School in Logic, Language and
 Information will be held in Barcelona, Spain. This year the programme
 includes a workshop on the computational lexicon open to all

 Research on representing and acquiring multilingual lexical knowledge
 for natural language processing systems is becoming increasingly important.
 This workshop will address a number of theoretical aspects as well as practical
 results in this area.

In addition to invited talks, a limited number of other parties will be allowed
 to contribute. Those wishing to make presentations should submit 3 copies of
 anonymous abstracts ( up to 4 pages, 12 point font) to the address below, to
 arrive before May 4, 1995.

 Relevant topics include, but are not limited to the following:
 . structure and content of a lexical entry for a multilingual computational
 . lexical representation language and operations provided to support
 lexical processes
 . sources of lexical information and semi-automatic extraction techniques
 to build computational lexicons

Theoretical papers addressing the basic issues listed above, practical papers
on relevant experience and software demos are equally wellcome.
Please provide a separate sheet detailing title, author(s) and
and address, e-mail, telephone and fax of one author for
communication purposes. Indicate on both the abstract and the identification
sheet whether you require 20 minutes or 40 minutes for presentation.
Notification of acceptance will be by June 10th. Final versions of papers
should be received by 7th July for inclusion in a proceedings to be
at the Summer School.

 Mesoamerican Manuscripts Solicited

 The Institute for Mesoamerican Studies solicits book manuscripts on all
aspects of Mesoamerican studies, including archaeology, ethnology,
ethnohistory, linguistics, epigraphy, art history, and historical
anthropology. We publish two series. (1) IMS Monographs are large-format
books (8.5 x 11") that present new findings and research results. We aim to
publish high-quality specialized studies that may be difficult to publish
through traditional commercial or university presses. Two IMS Monographs
are currently in production: a reprinting (with new preface) of Phoneticism
in Maya Hieroglyphic Writing (edited by John Justeson and Lyle Campbell),
and Hach Winik: The Lacandon Mayas of Southern Mexico, an ethnography by
Didier Boremanse. (2) Studies in Culture and Society are books with a
broader analytical, integrative, or interpretive focus. Economies and
Polities in the Aztec Realm (edited by Mary Hodge and Michael Smith) was
recently published in this series, and we are now producing In Word and
Deed: Inter-Ethnic Images and Cultural Developments in the New World, a
2-volume set edited by Gary Gossen. All IMS books are published in
paperback editions and are distributed by the University of Texas Press.

Mesoamerican Studies, Social Science 263, University at Albany (SUNY),

submit a prospectus before sending a manuscript.
 (Although the editor at IMS does not use e-mail, you may send
messages to, and I will forward them to him.)
