    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: Computational.Semanticskub.nl
