	 Call for Papers and Registration for the

		 Fifth International Conference on

	The COGNITIVE SCIENCE of NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING

	 Dublin City University, 2-4 September 1996


Theme: Ambiguity
One of the major problems for NLP and Speech Systems is the identification
and processing of ambiguous input. Original papers dealing with cognitive
aspects of ambiguity in NLP and Speech Systems are invited. Papers dealing
with other areas of Cognitive Science and Natural Language Processing will
also be considered, but preference will be given to papers addressing the
theme of the conference.

Both oral and poster sessions are planned. All papers will be published in
the conference proceedings. See below for details of submission.

Invited Speakers:
The following speakers have agreed to give keynote talks:
Sylviane Cardey, Universit/e de Franche-Comt/e, France
Alex Monaghan, National Centre for Language Technology, Ireland


This is a small conference, limited to about 40 delegates. We aim to keep
things relatively informal, and to promote discussion and debate. All
official activities will take place on the campus of Dublin City University,
three miles North of the city centre and five miles from the airport.


Submission of papers:

One-page abstracts should be submitted to the address below, to arrive not
later than the 7th of June: email abstracts are preferred. Acceptance will
be notified by the 5th of July. Hard-copy final papers (8 pages approx.)
should arrive in Dublin by the 16th of August. Papers should be in English,
clearly printed, with full references. There is no particular format.


Registration and Accommodation:
The registration fee will be IR#60, and will include proceedings, lunches and
one evening meal. Accommodation can be reserved in the campus residences at DCU
.
A single room is around IR#20 per night, including continental breakfast.
Accommodation will be "First come, first served": there is a heavy demand for
campus rooms in the summer.
There are also several hotels and B&B establishments nearby: addresses will
be provided on request.

Message 3: Syntax of Central Romance Languages

 SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS



 Third Workshop on the Syntax of Central Romance Languages

 Universitat de Girona
 Girona, November 15th-16th, 1996


The First Workshop on the Syntax of The Central Romance Languages was
held in Geneva in July 1990 and the second one in Barcelona in May
1993. The First Workshop was an important forum for researchers
working on the syntax of those Romance languages and dialects that
have not traditionally occupied a central position in the Romance
linguistic literature. The syntactic phenomena displayed by these
varieties are of great theoretical relevance, but they are not as
easily available to linguists as data from other better-known Romance
languages. The second edition also focused on some aspects of
morphology. The Workshop included papers on Catalan, Franco-
Provencal, Galician, Genoese, Italian, Ligurian, Occitan, Padovan,
Sardinian, Spanish, Trentino, Veneto and Walloon,

The Third Workshop will continue the line initiated in Geneva and
followed in Barcelona. We request papers on syntactic aspects of any
Romance languages and dialects that have so far received little
attention in the linguistic literature. We are also interested in
papers on the interfaces between syntax and other components of
grammar (morphology, phonology, semantics, etc.). Preference will be
given to contributions focusing on poorly-described varieties,
describing new data or phenomena, or having a significant comparative
slant.


Invited Speaker
