Subject: IWCS-3


 Third International Workshop on 

 COMPUTATIONAL SEMANTICS

 (IWCS - 3)

 January 13-15, 1999, Tilburg, The Netherlands

 -------------


 CALL FOR PAPERS
 -------------

The Linguistics Department at Tilburg University will host the Third 
International Workshop on Computational Semantics, that will take 
place in Tilburg, The Netherlands, 13 - 15 January 1999. The aim of
the workshop is to bring together researchers involved in the study 
of computational aspects of the semantics of natural language. 


 TOPICS OF INTEREST

The workshop will focus on computational aspects of formal semantic 
theories and on the theoretical issues involved in the development of
natural language processing systems. Papers are sought in areas which
include, but are not limited to, the following topics: 

 * working with underspecified semantic representations 
 * use of context in interpretation
 * the semantics-pragmatics interface
 * dynamic interpretation in text and dialogue
 * information packaging
 * computational lexical semantics
 * interpretation and inference
 * interpretation in multi-modal interaction
 * context modelling
 * speech acts and interpretation
 * incremental interpretation
 * connections with theorem proving and knowledge representation


 SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Authors are asked to submit an original paper of maximally 5000 words
by September 15, 1998. Papers should be prepared with LaTeX and should
be submitted by email. All submitted papers will be refereed by the
programme committee. Accepted papers will be published in the
proceedings; we also aim at publishing a selection of accepted papers
in book form. Guidelines for LaTeX preparation of your manuscript will
be made available at the IWCS-3 web pages:
http://cwis.kub.nl/~fdl/research/ti/Docs/IWCS/iwcs.htm
For initial submission email a Postscript version of the paper to:
