CALL FOR PAPERS

SECOND INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON COMPUTATIONAL SEMANTICS (IWCS II)
January 8-10, 1997, Tilburg, The Netherlands

The Tilburg Linguistics Department will host the Second Workshop on
Computational Semantics, which will take place in Tilburg, The
Netherlands, from 8 - 10 January 1997. The aim of the workshop is to
bring together researchers involved in all aspects of natural language
computational semantics.


TOPICS OF INTEREST

The workshop will focus on the computational aspects of formal semantic
theories and on 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:

* underspecified semantic representations: definition and use
* use of context in interpretation
* the semantics - pragmatics interface
* dynamic interpretation in text and dialogue
* incremental interpretation
* language and visual information
* speech acts and interpretation
* information packaging
* computational lexical semantics
* context modelling
* interpretation and inference

All submitted papers will be refereed by an international programme
committee.


SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Authors are asked to submit an original paper of maximally 10 pages
and maximally 8000 words by Sunday September 1, 1996. Email a
postscript version of the paper to:

Computation...@kub.nl

Papers should be prepared with LaTeX. Each title page should contain
the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of all
authors. Please use the LaTeX header file which is attached to this
Call.

LaTeX source codes of final papers are due on November 15, 1996. A
copy of the proceedings will be available for each participant at the
workshop.

GUIDELINES FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS

Papers should be submitted by email in Postscript form. Accepted papers
will be published in the proceedings, which will be available at the time
of the conference; we also aim at publishing a selection of the accepted
papers in book form. All papers should contain:

- a list of approximately 5 keywords
- an abstract
- a conclusion section

For the production of the proceedings, final versions of accepted papers
will have to be submitted in LaTeX form; it is therefore advisable to use
LaTeX from the start. Detailed instructions for layout will be available
at the Web page (see below). For a start, we suggest that you use the
following LaTeX format as the basis for producing the Postscript file:

\documentstyle[11pt,a4,epsf]{article}
\setlength{\textwidth}{15cm}

Please refer to bibliographical items using author names and year of
publication, rather than by numbers, and sort the bibliography
alphabetically.

2 POSITIONs in COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS

Where: University of Zurich/Switzerland
Department of Computer Science
Computational Linguistics Group
Winterthurerstr. 190
CH-8057 Zurich

What: 2 Research assistants for 2 years

Starting date: Summer 1996 (no later than October 15)

Qualification: Diploma/Masters degree in Computational Linguistics or
in a related area (computer science, linguistics) with minor in
Computational Linguistics. Programming skills in Prolog and good English
skills are required. Skills in LISP, knowledge of grammar formalisms,
and logic based semantic representation are an advantage. Knowledge of

Final Call For Papers

SIXTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND STATISTICS

January 4-7, 1997
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

http://www.stat.washington.edu/aistats97/

PURPOSE:
This is the sixth in a series of workshops which has brought together
researchers in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and in Statistics to discuss
problems of mutual interest. The exchange has broadened research in both fields
and has strongly encouraged interdisciplinary work. Papers on all aspects of
the interface between AI & Statistics are encouraged.

FORMAT:
To encourage interaction and a broad exchange of ideas, the presentations will
be limited to about 20 discussion papers in single session meetings over three
days (Jan. 5-7). Focussed poster sessions will provide the means for presenting
and discussing the remaining research papers. Papers for poster sessions will
be treated equally with papers for presentation in publications.

Attendance at the workshop will *not* be limited.

The three days of research presentations will be preceded by a day of tutorials
(Jan. 4). These are intended to expose researchers in each field to the
methodology used in the other field. The tutorial speakers are A. P. Dawid
(University College London), Michael Jordan (MIT), Tom Mitchell (Carnegie
Mellon), and Mike West (Duke University).


TOPICS OF INTEREST:

- automated data analysis and knowledge representation for
statistics
- statistical strategy
- metadata and design of statistical data bases
- multivariate graphical models, belief networks
- causality
- cluster analysis and unsupervised learning
- predictive modeling: classification and regression
- interpretability in modeling
- model uncertainty, multiple models
- probability and search
- knowledge discovery in databases
- integrated man-machine modeling methods
- statistical methods in AI approaches to
vision, robotics, pattern recognition, software agents,
planning, information retrieval, natural language processing, etc.
- AI methods applied to problems in statistics such as
statistical advisory systems, experimental design,
exploratory data analysis, causal modeling, etc.

This list is not intended to define an exclusive list of topics
of interest. Authors are encouraged to submit papers on any topic
which falls within the intersection of AI and Statistics.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

Three copies of an extended abstract (up to 4 pages) should be sent to

David Madigan, Program Chair
6th International Workshop on AI and Statistics
Department of Statistics, Box 354322
University of Washington
Seattle, WA 98195

or electronically (postscript or latex preferred) to

Submissions for will be considered if *postmarked* by June 30, 1996.
If the submission is electronic (e-mail), then it must be *received*
by midnight July 1, 1996.

Please indicate which topic(s) your abstract addresses and include
an electronic mail address for correspondence. Receipt of all
submissions will be confirmed via electronic mail. Acceptance
notices will be mailed by September 1, 1996. Preliminary papers (up
to 20 pages) must be returned by November 1, 1996. These preliminary
papers will be copied and distributed at the workshop.
