 CONSTRAINT BASED FORMALISMS AND GRAMMAR WRITING

 Barcelona
 Aug. 21-25, 1995

on the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
(ESSLLI95) (for the ESSLLI95 program and registration info see:
 http://ftp.fwi.uva.nl/pub/theory/illc/folli/esslli95.txt)
_______________________________________________________________________

This workshop aims at allowing young researchers working on grammar
implementations using modern constraint-based (or typed feature-based)
formalisms to present and discuss their work. Major focus should lie
in uncovering how coding is influenced or what benefits are gained by
the particular choice of formalism. We plan to devote two of the five
90 minute sessions to introducing the relevant (and most commonly
used) formalisms. Contributed talks are expected to last around 30
minutes allowing further 15 minutes for discussion. If you intend to
contribute, send a 3-6 page abstract by 1 May to one of us (see
'Organizers' below), preferrably by e-mail. Notice that this is a
regular ESSLLI95 event and registration to ESSLLI95 is required.
