    TAG+5 International Workshop on Tree Adjoining Grammars and Related Formalisms May 25 - 27, 2000 Jussieu, Paris, France



    (version fran�aise infra)

    The fifth workshop on tree-adjoining grammars and related frameworks (hence the + after TAG) will be held at the University of Paris 7, from May 25 to May 27 2000, sponsored by ATALA (Association pour le Traitement Automatique des Langues).

    Previous workshops were held at Dagstuhl (1990), UPenn (1992), Univ. Paris 7 (1994) and UPenn (1998).

    Original submissions on all aspects of TAGs (linguistic, mathematical, computational, and applicational) are invited, as well as those relating TAGs to other frameworks, lexicalized (dependency grammars, categorial grammars...), tree-based (DTG, TFG, GB...) or feature-based (LFG, HPSG...).

    As in the past, there will be some invited talks on other grammar formalisms which have interesting relationships to TAGs.

    ABSTRACTS: You can submit papers for three kinds of presentations: long talks (25 minutes + 5 min for discussion), short talks (10 min + 5) and/or tool demonstrations.

    Please note that an author (or a given set of co-authors) should not submit more than one paper.

    Submissions will be anonymous, and should therefore not include the author's name, nor any self-reference. Abstracts should be no longer than 4 pages. 2 hardcopies should be sent by surface mail to: TAG+5 UFRL, Universit� Paris 7 TALaNa, case 7003 2, place Jussieu F-75251 Paris cedex 05 A separate identification page (with the following information : title of the paper, author's name, affiliation, postal address, email address, fax and telephone number) should also be included. Please also indicate if you submitted your abstract to other conferences. Also a postcript file should be sent to Please indicate "tag+5 submission" in the subject field.

    Important : all postcript files MUST be in an A4 format Proceedings including extended versions of accepted abstracts will be available at the workshop.

    Languages of the workshop: English and French

    If you do not want to submit an abstract, but would like to attend, we would appreciate if you could send a message. If you would like to present a demo, please let us know as soon as possible, including information about required hardware and software.


    Deadline for submissions: January 22 Notification of acceptance: March 3 Deadline for camera-ready extended abstract: April 15 Workshop Dates: May 25 to May 27



    La cinqui�me conf�rence sur les grammaires d'arbres adjoints (TAG) et

    autres formalismes proches (d'o� le +) aura lieu � l'Universit� Paris 7 du 25 au 27 mai 2000 sous l'�gide de l'ATALA (Association pour le Traitement Automatique des Langues).

    Les conf�rences pr�c�dentes se sont tenus � Dagstuhl (1990), UPenn (1992), Univ. Paris 7 (1994) et UPenn (1998).

    Les communications pourront porter sur tous les th�mes ayant trait aux grammaires d'arbres adjoints (linguistique, math�matique, informatique et applications) aussi bien que sur leur relations avec d'autres th�ories linguistiques (grammaires de d�pendance, grammaires cat�gorielles, DTG, TFG, GB, LFG, HPSG, etc.).

    Comme par le pass�, les conf�renciers invit�s pr�senteront des travaux sur d'autres formalismes dont la relation avec TAG semble int�ressante.


    Trois types de communications seront propos�s : longues (25min. + questions), courtes (10min. + questions) et d�monstrations sur machine.

    Notez que chaque auteur et groupe d'auteurs ne doivent soumettre qu'un seul r�sum�.

    Les r�sum�s anonymes de 4 pages au maximum seront envoy�s en deux exemplaires par la poste avant le 22 janvier 2000 � l'adresse suivante :

    TAG+5 UFRL, Universit� Paris 7 TALaNa, case 7003 2, place Jussieu F-75251 Paris cedex 05
