WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

There has been a move towards considering how spatial information can
be obtained and used by Vision Processing (VP) and Natural Language
Processing systems (NLP) (generation and understanding). New research
directions, such as multimodal interfaces, Geographical Information
Systems (GIS), navigation tools, but also robotics, multi-agent models
and other 'core' AI areas depend much on the use of spatial knowledge.
Vision, spatial information processing, and natural language are used
in an integrated fashion by cognitive and computational systems in
many ways when interacting with environments. Environments pose
strong resource limitations on information-processing systems, either
human and artificial. How these systems locally and globally adapt to
resources does not only provide a direction for more efficient and
flexible models but also gives insights into cognitive processes and
representations in general.

We can learn much about efficient and flexible processing of spatial
information by looking at the human being as a good example of an
adaptive system. Research efforts in different fields, such as
Cognitive Psychology, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Neurobiology have
gained much understanding in how humans adapt visual and natural
language capabilities to environments.

This workshop is intended to bring together researchers from various
disciplines who are interested in processes and representations
related to visual data, spatial knowledge and natural language
processing.

 * interdisciplinary dialogue to find a common ground and terminology
 * discussion of current research initiatives into the use of spatial
 knowledge from various perspectives
 * acquisition and processing of spatial knowledge by VP and NLP
 * conceptualization and representation of spatial knowledge
 * verbalization of spatial knowledge
 * grounding of representations

Contributions are encouraged which focus on areas such as:
acquisition, representation, and processing of spatial knowledge in
visual data processing and natural language systems; integration of
spatial knowledge in language descriptions; imagery; cognitive
mapping; temporal and spatial reasoning; synthetic and physical
navigation systems; cognitive models of adaptive behavior in large and
small scale space.

Message 2: DAARC96 and IndiAna Workshop

Date: Fri, 17 May 1996 19:04:52 -0000
From: "Mr S P Botley" <spbcomp.lancs.ac.uk>
Subject: DAARC96 and IndiAna Workshop


		FINAL NOTIFICATION and Last Call for Participants


	DAARC96 - Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution Colloquium
		Lancaster University, UK, 17-18th July, 1996

	IndiAna Workshop -
		Lancaster University, UK, 19th July 1996.


VENUE

DAARC96 and IndiAna are taking place on the Bailrigg Campus of
Lancaster University, situated in one of the most beautiful and
picturesque areas of North-West England. Lancaster is close to the
Lake District and the Fylde Coast, and is one of Great Britain's
oldest cities, with a rich historical and cultural heritage.

DAARC96 and the IndiAna Workshop are taking place in the Faraday
lecture and seminar room complex, situated in the centre of the
campus. A full campus map will be sent to all registered delegates
via surface mail along with a copy of this Notification, a parking
permit and other helpful information. Receipts will be issued on
arrival at the conference to registered delegates who have already
paid their conference fees.


REACHING THE UNIVERSITY

By road:

Lancaster University lies close to the M6 motorway, about 15 miles
north of Preston. Whether you are approaching from the North or the
South, we recommend that you use Junction 33, which lies South of the
City of Lancaster. At the roundabout, take the right-hand exit
towards Lancaster. After about half a mile, you will pass through the
village of Galgate. Continue along this road (A6) for another mile
and you will come to a set of traffic lights at the beginning of a
short stretch of dual carriageway. Turn right at these lights, and
you will find yourself entering the University grounds. Parking
instructions are given below in the section "On Arrival at the
Conference".

By rail:

Lancaster lies on the West Coast line, linking Glasgow and London.
Most InterCity trains stop at Lancaster, but some do not, and it may
be necessary to change at Preston to a local train. There are also
direct connections from Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and cities in the
South West. A taxi from the station to the University will cost about
#4.50 (more at night and on weekends)

Buses to the University are plentiful, but you will have to walk 500
metres or so from the Station to the bus-stop on Common Garden Street
(in front of the market entrance). Buses may be numbered 1, 2 or
sometimes 2A. Make sure that the bus is also marked "University", as
some take a different route. To get to the bus-stop, come out of the
main entrance of the British Rail station, and turn left onto Meeting
House Lane. At the end there is a T-junction with Waterstone's
bookshop on the right-hand corner. Turn right. Common Garden Street
is the first major road that you come to on your left.

When purchasing your rail ticket, try to buy a "saver", rather than
the much more expensive standard return. Make sure that you give your
journey dates and times, as there are certain restrictions on the use
of a saver.

Note: We will arrange taxis to the railway station to enable people to
get away quickly after the conference ends.

By air:

There are rail connections from Lancaster to Manchester and London
airports, which lie about 60 and 250 miles from Lancaster,
respectively. Leeds-Bradford airport is also not far away, but
prospective passengers might want to take into account that trains
connecting Leeds and Lancaster are now all of the "local" variety -
which is to say that you should reckon on a 2-hour journey with plenty
of stops and not much leg-room!

A return taxi fare from Manchester Airport to Lancaster will cost
about 40 pounds if booked in advance. Some numbers to try are:
Transair (0524-411097), Airlink (0524-417234) and Aircar
(0524-845845). Taxis hired from a rank at the airport may cost a lot
more.


ON ARRIVAL AT THE CONFERENCE

Parking

Those arriving by car may park anywhere on the perimeter road. We
recommend that you park near Cartmel College, or County College. To
do this, follow the main University access road to the top of the
hill, and take the second exit off the first roundabout, which takes
you down through an underpass. As you emerge from the underpass, turn
left at the next roundabout, continue for 50 yards or so and park in
the vicinity of Cartmel Avenue. CONFERENCE PARKING IS RESTRICTED TO
THE PERIMETER ROAD. Please do not park on any of the avenues. A
parking permit will be included with the surface mailing which will
shortly be sent to registered delegates, and parking permits must be
displayed on the windscreen.

Arriving by bus, coach or taxi

If arriving by taxi, bus or coach, you will probably be set down in
the underpass, or near the University reception. From here you should
make your way to the nearby Alexandra Square, which is the central
locus of the University, and look for the "North Spine", which leads
(after 60 metres or so) to the Faraday complex which will be on your
right.


Registration.

The Registration Desk is situated inside the entrance of the Faraday
Building, in the Foyer. Here, registered delegates will be issued
with their conference pack, and receipt. The Registration Desk will
be staffed throughout the conference by a team of volunteer helpers,
who will be on hand to assist delegates with any problems or queries
they may have.

Accommodation

This will be in Cartmel and Lonsdale Colleges, in single study-bedrooms
unless delegates have requested double rooms. Ensuite accommodation will be
allocated on a limited basis.
