[ Apologies for multiple copies ] ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Fifth International Workshop on COMPUTATIONAL SEMANTICS (IWCS-5) January 15-17, 2003, Tilburg, The Netherlands ------------- Endorsed by SIGSEM, the ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Semantics SIGLEX, the ACL Special Interest Group on the Lexicon ------------- FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS Tilburg University will host the Fifth International Workshop on Computational Semantics (IWCS-5), which will take place from 15-17 January 2003. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in any aspects of the computation of meaning in natural language, in language-based multimedia objects, or in multimodal messages. TOPICS OF INTEREST Topics of interest for the workshop will be computational aspects of semantic theories and theoretical issues in building natural language understanding systems. Papers are invited in areas which include, but are not limited to, the following: * construction and use of natural language semantic representations * knowledge representation and reasoning in meaning computation * learning lexical semantics from corpora * meaning representation in multimodal interaction * the semantic web, ontologies and natural language semantics * meaning in multimedia objects * the computational semantics-pragmatics interface * modelling and using context for semantic interpretation * computational semantics of speech acts * logic and use of underspecified representations of meaning * monotonicity and shallow reasoning in interpretation * dynamic interpretation in text, speech and dialogue * inductive logic programming and computational semantics * semantic aspects of language generation * shallow processing and formal semantics INVITED SPEAKERS To be announced PROGRAMME COMMITTEE (not all confirmed yet) Patrick Blackburn Emiel Krahmer Johan Bos Alex Lascarides Harry Bunt (chair) Reinhard Muskens Nicoletta Calzolari Martha Palmer Robin Cooper Manfred Pinkal Kees van Deemter Steve Pulman Jan van Eijck James Pustejovsky Frank van Harmelen Allan Ramsay Pat Hayes Laurent Romary Jerry Hobbs Patrick Saint Dizier Daniel Kayser Mark Steedman Paul Mc Kevitt Enric Vallduvi Adam Kilgariff Bonnie Webber ORGANISING COMMITTEE Harry Bunt Reinhard Muskens Yann Girard Ielka van der Sluis Emiel Krahmer Elias Thijsse Roser Morante SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS Submission of full papers ------------------------- Authors are asked to submit an original paper of maximally 14 pages by September 15, 2002. Files should be prepared with LaTeX and initial submissions should be in postscript format. (For accepted papers we will need the LaTeX source code to prepare the proceedings.) The page limit presupposes the standard 11 point Computer Modern font and default LaTeX formatting. All papers will be refereed by the programme committee. We aim at publishing a selection of accepted papers in book form after the workshop. Email your postscript file to: computational.semantics_(on)_kub .nl There are two levels of acceptance: - Acceptance for a long (30 min.) presentation. The full paper will be published in the proceedings, available at the time of the workshop. - Acceptance for a flash (5 min.) presentation in a plenary session plus presentation of a poster in one of the poster sessions. Authors will be invited to publish a 3-page abstract in the proceedings. Submission of poster abstracts ------------------------------ It is also possible to directly submit a 3-page abstract for a flash presentation and a poster session. The abstract should be prepared with LaTeX (11 point Computer Modern, default formatting). Email to computational.semantics_(on)_kub .nl the resulting postscript file by 1 November 2002. Further guidelines ------------------ Since we will use the LaTeX source code of accepted papers and poster abstracts for producing the proceedings, please follow the further guidelines for submission at the IWCS-5 website: http:// let.kub.nl/research/TI/sigsem/iwcs/iwcs5/index.htm IMPORTANT DATES 15 September 2002 Submission of full papers 15 October 2002 Notification of acceptance 1 November 2002 Submission of poster abstracts 15 November 2002 Final papers due 15 December 2002 Deadline for early registration 15-17 January 2003 Workshop FURTHER INFORMATION Secretariat: Ms Anne Adriaensen Computational Linguistics and AI Tilburg University PO Box 90153 5000 LE Tilburg The Netherlands Fax: +31-13 466 31 10 Phone: +31-13 466 30 60 Email: computational.semantics_(on)_kub .nl Website: http:// let.kub.nl/research/TI/sigsem/iwcs/iwcs5/index.htm ---------------------------------------------------------------------- IWCS-5 is endorsed by SIGSEM, the ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Semantics (see http://www.sigsem.org) and by SIGLEX, the ACL Special Interest Group on the Lexicon (see 3http://www.c is.upenn.edu/%7Empalmer/siglex2.html). ---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------- Harry C.
