 LFG98

 1998 INTERNATIONAL LEXICAL FUNCTIONAL GRAMMAR CONFERENCE

 30 June - 2 July 1998
 The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

 ----> Submission receipt deadline: 30 January 1998 <----
 URL: http://www.sultry.arts.usyd.edu.au/LFG98/
 Enquiries: lfg98sultry.arts.usyd.edu.au

You are invited you to participate in LFG98 which will take place from
30 June till 2 July 1998 at Emmanuel College, The University of
Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.

LFG98, the third in a series of international conferences, will take
place just before the Australian Linguistic Society annual meeting and
the two week Australian Linguistic Institute. The conference welcomes
work both within the formal architecture of Lexical-Functional Grammar
and typological, formal, and computational work within the 'spirit of
LFG', as a lexicalist approach to language employing a parallel,
constraint-based framework. The conference aims to promote
interaction and collaboration among researchers interested in
nonderivational approaches to grammar, where grammar is seen as the
interaction of constraints from multiple levels, including category
information, grammatical relations, and semantic information. Further
information about the syntactic theory LFG can be obtained from:

 http://clwww.essex.ac.uk/LFG/

PARTICIPATION

LFG98 will be attended by most of the leading figures in the
international LFG community including Farrell Ackerman, Avery Andrews,
Kersti Borjars, Joan Bresnan, Mary Dalrymple, Ron Kaplan,
K.P. Mohanan, Tara Mohanan, Nigel Vincent, Annie Zaenen, ...

SUBMISSIONS

The conference will involve 20-minute talks, poster/system
presentations, and workshops. Talks and poster presentations will
focus on results from completed as well as ongoing research, with an
emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives,
whether descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational. We
particularly welcome papers and suggestions for workshops on languages
of the Asia-Pacific region.

Abstracts and papers must be received by 30 January 1998, and should
be submitted to the program committee chairs at the address given
below.

CALL FOR PAPERS

FOR THE 5TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SPOKEN LANGUAGE PROCESSING

ICSLP '98

Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre
November 30th - December 4th 1998

The ICSLP '98 conference will continue the eight year tradition of the
ICSLP series in bringing together professionals from all the diverse
disciplines that contribute to Spoken Language Processing. It will be
the premier international display of the state-of-the-art in this
broad field in 1998. The conference will build bridges between people
and sub-disciplines in order to create and nurture synergies that are
important for the future of the field.

Keynote presentations and other plenary events which bring both
experience and vision of multi-disciplinary attacks on grand
challenges in spoken language processing in both humans and machines
will contribute to our aims. A student day at which full-time student
registrants may present their ideas under the guidance of senior
mentors is also planned. However, it is the quality of the delegate
presentations which will be the major factor in making ICSLP '98 a
truly landmark event. This call for papers offers to you the
opportunity to be a part of this significant event.
