Sixth International Workshop on COMPUTATIONAL SEMANTICS (IWCS-6) January 12-14, 2005, Tilburg, The Netherlands ------------- Endorsed by SIGSEM, the ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Semantics ------------- FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS Tilburg University will host the Sixth International Workshop on Computational Semantics (IWCS-6), which will take place on 12-14 January 2005. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in any aspects of the computation of meaning in natural language, in multimedia objects, and in multimodal messages. TOPICS OF INTEREST Areas of special interest for the workshop will be computational aspects of semantic theories; theoretical aspects of the design of language understanding systems and systems for multimodal communication; and semantic annotation of natural language and multimodal utterances. Papers are invited that are concerned with topics in these areas, including, but not limited to, the following: * construction of representations of meaning in natural language * modelling and using context for semantic interpretation * learning lexical semantics from corpora * methodologies and tools for semantic annotation * information sources and their use in meaning computation * construction and use of underspecified representations of meaning * the semantic web and natural language semantics * referential relations to concepts in ontologies and repositories * machine learning of semantic structures * computational semantics of speech acts and dialogue acts * the computational semantics-pragmatics interface * dynamic interpretation in text, speech and dialogue * meaning representation in multimodal interaction * referential links within and across multiple modalities * gestural morphosyntax and its semantic interpretation * structural semantic relations in discourse and dialogue * semantic aspects of language generation * shallow processing and formal semantics * monotonicity and shallow reasoning in interpretation SIGSEM WORKING GROUP MEETING Immediately preceding IWCS-6, on 10-11 January 2005, the ACL SIGSEM Working Group on the Representation of Multimodal Semantic Information will have its fourth meeting at Tilburg University. This meeting will be open to IWCS-6 participants. For more information see the Working Group's website at http://let.uvt.nl/research/TI/sigsem/wg INVITED SPEAKERS to be announced PROGRAMME COMMITTEE (not all confirmed) James Allen Alex Lascarides Patrick Blackburn Reinhard Muskens Johan Bos Martha Palmer Harry Bunt (chair) Manfred Pinkal Nicoletta Calzolari Massimo Poesio Robin Cooper Steve Pulman Kees van Deemter Alan Ramsay Jan van Eijck Maarten de Rijke Dafydd Gibbon Laurent Romary Jerry Hobbs Patrick Saint Dizier Daniel Kayser Mark Steedman Paul Mc Kevitt Matthew Stone Adam Kilgarriff Carl Vogel Emiel Krahmer Bonnie Webber ORGANISING COMMITTEE Harry Bunt Reinhard Muskens Jeroen Geertzen Ielka van der Sluis Yann Girard Elias Thijsse Roser Morante Anne Adriaensen(secretary) SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS Three types of submission are solicited: full papers, short papers, and project abstracts. Full papers ----------- Full papers are original papers of maximally 12 pages, that will be published in the workshop proceedings and will have a full presentation of about 30 minutes at the workshop. Short papers ------------ Short papers are mini-papers of 3 pages, that will be published in the workshop proceedings and have a flash presentation at the workshop. Authors of short papers are also invited to put up a poster and participate in a poster session. Project abstracts ----------------- Project abstracts are brief descriptions of 2 pages of ongoing, recently completed, or starting projects. They will be published in the workshop proceedings and will be presented in a poster session. Submission formats ------------------ Submissions of all three types should be in postscript or pdf format and prepared with LaTeX; see the IWCS-6 website http://let.uvt.nl/research/TI/sigsem/iwcs/iwcs6 for more information on the style files to be used. The page limits presuppose standard 11 point Computer Modern font. Final versions of accepted contributions will have to be submitted as LaTeX source files to facilitate publication of the proceedings; we also aim at publishing a selection of accepted papers in book form after the workshop. Email your postscript or pdf file to: computational.semantics_(on)_kub.nl Submission deadlines -------------------- For full papers the submission deadline is 25 September 2004; for short papers and project abstracts the deadline is 1 November.
