Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain)

November 2-4, 1995

Organized by
Rovira i Virgili University at Tarragona
Research Group in Mathematical Linguistics and Language Engineering (GRLMC)

With the financial support of
Direccio General de Recerca (Generalitat de Catalunya)

1st. announcement and call for papers

ICML'95 intends to become an open and broad scope forum for the presentation
and discussion of current high quality research on mathematical models of
natural language.

The first conference (ICML'93) took place in Tarragona on March 30-31, 1993.
A derived volume has been published: C. Martin-Vide (ed.), Current Issues in
Mathematical Linguistics. North-Holland, Amsterdam, 1994.

Topics will be grouped into five sections:

1. Foundations and methodological considerations.
2. Mathematical models for syntax.
3. Mathematical models for semantics.
4. Applications in natural language processing.
5. Varia (phonology, computational complexity, learning, quantitative
methods, etc.).

The language of the conference is English.

Organizing Committee

Carlos Martin-Vide (Chairman, Tarragona)
Joan Busquets (Austin)
Rosa Maria Hidalgo (Tarragona)
Joan Miquel (Barcelona)
Rudolf Ortega (Tarragona)
Jesus Vidal (Austin)


They can be invited plenary 1-hour lectures and free possibly parallel 30
minutes lectures. The travel and accommodation of invited speakers will be
paid by the Organizing Committee. The distribution into both categories will
take into account the relative value of each paper and the budgetary
resources. Interested people are invited to submit papers:

By surface mail, or
Electronically, as either an unformatted (plain text) ASCII file or as a
LaTeX file.

They should send one copy of a camera-ready 2-columns abstract of not more
than 2 not-numbered pages. Also, they must indicate the section into which
their paper fits. Submissions will be anonymously refereed, and the list of
accepted lectures (invited as well as free) will be included into future
announcements. Authors will be notified of acceptance as soon as possible.


Deadline for the submission of a paper (2-pages abstract): September 30, 1995.

The programme will be sent to all pre-registered participants on October 1995.

The book of abstracts will be available at the beginning of the conference.

The Organizing Committee expects that a volume containing a refereed
selection of submitted papers will be published after the conference.
