Date: Fri, 24 Jul 1998 11:08:39 +0200

Subject: LACL98 (Logical Aspects of Computational Ling 98)

LOGICAL ASPECTS OF COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS (LACL98)

THIRD (FINAL) CALL FOR PAPERS

DEADLINE EXTENSION: AUGUST 7, 1998

CONFERENCE TIME and PLACE:

14-16 December 1998

Projet Calligramme (LORIA)
Universite Pierre Mendes-France,
Grenoble 2
France


THEME

The LACL conferences provide a platform for the presentation of new
and original research on the use of logical techniques, both
model-theoretic and proof-theoretic, in the field of computational
linguistics. The first two editions of the conference were held in
Nancy (France), in September 1996 and 1997. Proceedings of these
events are published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence series. See http://www.loria.fr/~retore/LesLACL.html for
more information. From LACL98 on, the conference will operate on a
bi-annual schedule, so as to optimize the alternation with related
events.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

We hereby invite computational linguists, logicians, computer
scientists and/or philosophers to submit papers describing original
and unpublished research related to the conference theme. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

-logical foundations of computational grammar formalisms;
-model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics;
-constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammatical
analysis; -linguistic applications of linear logic, type theory; -
-computational complexity of type logics and feature logics; -
-natural-language interfaces for automated theorem provers


SUBMISSIONS

The LACL98 conference has an electronic refereeing procedure.
Submissions consist of two parts:

- A page containing the title of the paper, the name and
affiliation of the author(s), e-mail and postal address(es).
Format: plain ASCII.
- An abstract of maximally 4 pages (including figures and

at the conference. After the conference, authors are invited to submit
a full paper (up to 20 pages) for publication. The final papers will
appear in a special volume of the Springer-Verlag series of Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS/LNAI).

Message 2: Workshop on Interlinguas

Date: Sun, 26 Jul 1998 17:04:52 -0600 (MDT)
From: Stephen Helmreich <shelmreicrl.nmsu.edu>
Subject: Workshop on Interlinguas


Although the date for intent to participate has passed, we invite you
to still consider submitting a position paper for the Second Workshop
on Interlinguas, to be held October 27 in conjunction with the
AMTA. Deadline for receipt of position papers is August 10.

If you check our website, you will see that we have posted a
multilingual dialogue as an additional source of position paper
topics. We also currently have a multilingual text in English, French,
Spanish, German, Russian, Bulgarian, Italian, Catalan, Vietnamese,
Malay, Greek, Bulgarian, and Portuguese versions on line, with glosses
for Spanish, German, and Catalan.

We are still looking for people who might help with entering the
Chinese, Tamil, Arabic, and Persian versions, as well as providing
glosses for these and the other languages. If you could help out,
please contact me at shelmreicrl.nmsu.edu.

	 Thanks,

			Steve Helmreich
