Ambiguity in Anaphora: Call for Papers http://cswww.essex.ac.uk/Research/nle/anaphora/ 7-11 August 2006, Málaga, Spain. A workshop held as part of ESSLLI 2006, the Eighteenth European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information. Deadline for receipt of five-page extended abstracts: 8 March 2006 Address for submission: anaphora_(on)_essex.ac.uk Organizers Ron Artstein, Massimo Poesio (University of Essex) Description We invite extended abstracts for 45-minute presentations (including discussion) relating to ambiguity in anaphora. Anaphoric expressions such as pronouns and definite descriptions can be ambiguous: they may relate to more than one antecedent, or (potentially) denote more than one referent. Such ambiguity poses challenges to the representation of anaphoric relations in grammar and discourse and to computational algorithms which resolve anaphoric reference, all of which should allow for representing ambiguity. The workshop aims to create a dialogue between researchers who work on anaphoric ambiguity from a variety of perspectives, such as: * Theoretical studies of the representation of ambiguous anaphoric relations in syntax and semantics; * Discourse models which represent referential ambiguity; * Computational studies on the annotation and resolution of anaphoric ambiguity; * Psychological studies on the interpretation of ambiguous anaphoric expressions; * Studies of anaphoric expressions and anaphora antecedents which are not noun phrases. We especially welcome studies that cross disciplinary boundaries and look at anaphoric ambiguity from multiple viewpoints. Submission Deadline for receipt of extended abstracts: 8 March 2006 Address for submission: anaphora_(on)_essex.ac.uk Extended abstracts should conform to the following guidelines. * Maximum five (5) pages, including data/tables/figures/references. * Anonymous; do not identify the author via self-reference. * First paragraph should be a brief summary of the entire work. * A4 or letter size paper, 12 point font, 2.5 cm / 1 inch margins. * PDF file format, with all fonts embedded. Submit your extended abstracts as email attachments. In the body of the message include the paper title and the authors' names and affiliations, as well as the email address for the corresponding author. Address for submission: anaphora_(on)_essex.ac.uk Review Submissions will be reviewed by an international committee of theoretical linguists, computational linguists and psycholinguists. Jennifer Arnold, University of North Carolina Chris Barker, University of California, San Diego Kees van Deemter, University of Aberdeen Paul Elbourne, University of Manchester Alan Garnham, University of Sussex Klaus von Heusinger, University of Stuttgart Véronique Hoste, University of Antwerp Christer Johansson, University of Bergen Elsi Kaiser, University of Southern California Ruslan Mitkov, University of Wolverhampton Christoph Müller, EML Research Rebecca Passonneau, Columbia University Tanya Reinhart, Tel Aviv University Bonnie Webber, University of Edinburgh Selection will be strictly by quality, and there are no quotas based on discipline; we hope to get a mix of papers from a variety of viewpoints. Proceedings Final versions of the accepted papers, slightly longer than the extended abstracts, will be distributed in a summer school reader. If there is sufficient interest among the contributors, we intend to approach a journal for publication as a special issue. Workshop format The workshop is part of ESSLLI and attendance is open to all ESSLLI participants. It will consist of five sessions of 90 minutes each, held over five consecutive days in the second week of ESSLLI. Each session will consist of two 45-minute presentations (including time for questions and discussion). Registration All workshop contributors will be required to register for ESSLLI 2006. The registration fee for authors presenting a paper will correspond to the early student registration fee. A number of additional fee-waiver grants might be made available by the ESSLLI local organizing committee on a competitive basis and workshop participants are eligible to apply for those. There will be no reimbursement for travel costs or accommodation. Workshop speakers who have difficulty in finding funding should contact the ESSLLI local organizing committee to ask for the possibilities of a grant.
