    Philadelphia, PA, USA
    7 - 12 July, 2002

    The Association for Computational Linguistics invites the submission
    of papers for its 40th Annual Meeting hosted jointly with the North
    American Chapter of the ACL. Papers are invited on substantial,
    original, and unpublished research on all aspects of computational
    linguistics, including, but not limited to: pragmatics, discourse,
    semantics, syntax and the lexicon; phonetics, phonology and
    morphology; interpreting and generating spoken and written language;
    linguistic, mathematical and psychological models of language;
    language-oriented information retrieval, question answering,
    summarization and information extraction; language-oriented machine
    learning; corpus-based language modeling; multi-lingual processing,
    machine translation and translation aids; natural language interfaces
    and dialogue systems; approaches to coordinating the linguistic with
    other modalities in multi-media systems; message and narrative
    understanding systems; tools and resources; and evaluation of systems.

    - ----------
    Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed
    work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state
    of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete
    evaluation results should be included. A paper accepted for
    presentation at the ACL Meeting cannot be presented or have been
    presented at any other meeting with publicly available published
    proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or
    workshops must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that
    contain significant overlap with previously published work. For
    details see:

    Submission Format
    - ---------------
    Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and
    should not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly
    recommend the use of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style files
    tailored for this year's conference. They are available at
    A description of the format will also be available in case you are
    unable to use these style files directly. As reviewing will be
    blind. The paper should not include the authors' names and
    affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's
    identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...", should be
    avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Smith previously showed
    (Smith, 1991) ...".

    Papers that do not conform to the requirements above are subject to be
    rejected without review.

    Submission Procedure
    - ------------------

    1) Paper registration: You must submit a notification of submission
    by filling out the form at
    The authors should fill in the title of the paper, the authors' names,
    affiliations, and email addresses, one or two general topic areas, up to 5
    keywords specifying the subject area, and a short summary (up to 200 words).
      The authors should also specify whether the paper is under consideration
    for other conferences or workshops, and if so, which ones.

    Each submission will be assigned an identification number. Please use
    it on all correspondence with the program committee.

    2) Paper submission: All papers must be submitted electronically at
    the same web address. The first page of your paper must include the
    identification number obtained from paper registration. The paper must be
    submitted no later than 12 noon Mountain Time (7PM GMT) on
    Feb. 1 2002. Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed.
    Papers must be in PDF format. The submission web page includes
    information about converting different types of documents to PDF. The
    program committee will make every attempt to print out your paper
    successfully, but cannot take responsibility if they do not. Authors
    are strongly encouraged to submit papers 48 hours before the
    submission deadline so that unprinting formats can be detected and
    corrected by the submission deadline. If for some reason an author is not
    able to submit electronically, or if we have discovered in advance that

    Topics of interest include all aspects of the intersection of Natural
    Language Understanding with Logic Programming and Constraint (Logic)
    Programming, both theoretical and practical, in all levels of linguistic
    investigation. Special emphasis will be given to works addressing the
    logical, mathematical and computational relationships between linguistic
    formalisms and logic programming. Relevant issues include, but are not
    limited to, investigations of the logical theory underlying linguistic
    formalisms; alternative approaches to the semantics of such formalisms;
    applications of constraint logic programming to ``constraint-based''
    linguistic formalisms; issues governing grammar engineering, scalability,
    modularization, information encapsulation, etc; applications of inductive
    logic programming methods to NLP; higher-order logic programming;
    applications of functional programming to NLP; etc. However, all works
    dealing with issues of natural language and logic programming are welcome.


    Papers should be written in English and describe original, unpublished work.
    They should emphasize completed rather than proposed work. The state of
    completion of reported results should be clearly indicated. Papers must be
    anonymous and refrain from self-reference. Accepted papers cannot be
    presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly
    available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other
    conferences or workshops must indicate this on the title page.

    Submissions should be no longer than 15 pages (A4 or Letter format, single
    column, 11pt, at least 2.5cm / 1 inch margins), including title (but no
    author names), abstract, keywords and references. All contributions are to
    be made electronically, preferably as PDF attachments. Please send your
    anonymous submission to the organizer, If electronic
    submission is impossible, please contact the organizer. The deadline for
    submission is Sunday, 17 February, 2002.

       * Address
       * E-mail addresses
       * Title
       * Keywords
       * Abstract

    All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the program
    committee. The accepted papers will be made available electronically as part

    Call for Papers: ESSLLI-2002 STUDENT SESSION

    Trento, Italy
    August 5-16 2002

    Deadline: February 25th, 2002

    We are pleased to announce the Student Session of the 14th European
    Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI-2002)
    organised by the Centre for scientific and technological research
    (ITC-irst) in Trento and by the University of Trento, under the
    auspices of the European Association for Logic, Language and
    Information (FoLLI). ESSLLI-2002 will be held in Trento from August
    5-16 2002. We invite submission of papers for presentation at the
    ESSLLI-2002 Student Session and for appearance in the proceedings.

    The Student Session papers should describe original, unpublished work,
    completed or in progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and promise.
    No previously published papers should be submitted. Note that the ESSLLI02
    school will be focussed on the three main
    interdisciplinary areas (Logic & Language, Logic & Computation, and
    Language & Computation), while the single areas have been
    dropped. Given the high interest shown over the years, the Student
    Session will keep two of the single areas, namely Logic and Language,
    welcoming thus submissions within the following topics: Logic,
    Language, Logic & Language, Logic & Computation, Language &

    Student authors should submit an anonymous full paper headed by the
    paper title, not to exceed 7 pages of length exclusive of references
    and send a separate identification page (see below). Note that the
    length of the final version of the accepted papers will not be allowed to
    exceed 10 pages. Since reviewing will be blind, the body of the abstract
    should omit author names and addresses. Furthermore,
    self-references that reveal the author's identity (e.g., "We
    previously showed (Smith, 1991)... ") should be avoided. It is
    possible to use instead references like "Smith (1991) previously
    showed...". For any submission, a plain ASCII text version of the
    identification page should be sent separately, using the following

    Title: title of the submission
    First author: firstname lastname
    Address: address of the first author
    Last author: firstname lastname
    Address: address of the last author
    Short summary: abstract (5 lines)
    Subject area (one of): Logic | Language | Logic and
    Language | Logic and Computation | Language and Computation

    If necessary, the program committee may reassign papers to a more
    appropriate subject area. The submission of the extended abstract
    should be in one of the following formats: PostScript, PDF, RTF, or
    plain text. But note that, in case of acceptance, the final version of the
    paper has to be submitted in LaTeX format. Please, use A4 size
    pages, 11pt or 12pt fonts, and standard margins. Submissions outside
    the specified length and formatting requirements may be subject to
    rejection without review.

    The paper and separate identification page must be sent by
    e-mail to: by FEBRUARY 25th 2002

    Deadline for submission of abstracts: February 25, 2002.
    Authors Notifications: April 22, 2002.
    Final version due: May 20, 2002.

            Spring Meeting 2002: Edge Hill College of Higher Education

    Edge Hill College, UK
    9 - 11 April, 2002.

    The local organisers are Patrick Honeybone ( and
    Kevin Watson (

    The conference website will be at:

    You are invited to offer papers for the Meeting. The LAGB welcomes
    submissions on any topic in the field of linguistics; papers are selected on
    their (perceived) merits, and not according to their subject matter or
    assumed theoretical framework.

    How and when to submit an abstract

    Abstracts must be submitted on paper (not by email or by fax). FIVE
    anonymous copies of the abstract, plus ONE with name and affiliation, i.e.
    CAMERA-READY, should be submitted, and should be sent in the format outlined
    below to the President (address below). You must write your address for
    correspondence (email or surface) on the BACK of the camera-ready copy.
    (Even if several authors are named on the front, there should be only one
    name and address for correspondence.)

    Abstracts should be accompanied by an account of any special requirements
    regarding audiovisual equipment (other than an OHP).

    Papers for the programme are selected anonymously - only the President knows
    the name of the authors. Where possible, authors should supply an email
    address to which the committee's decision may be sent.

    Abstracts must arrive by January 8. Abstracts may also be submitted now for
    the meeting after the next one, but must be clearly marked as such. (In
    general the abstract deadlines for the autumn and spring meetings are soon
    after 1st June and 1st January respectively, so an abstract sent to reach
    the President by that date will always be in time.)

    Format of abstracts

    Abstracts must be presented as follows: The complete abstract (i.e. the one
    containing your title and your name) must be no longer than ONE A4 page
    (21cm x 29.5cm) with margins of at least 2.5cm on all sides. You may use
    single spacing but type must be no smaller than 12 point. If the paper is
    accepted the abstract will be photocopied and inserted directly into the
    collection of abstracts sent out to participants, so the presentation should
    be clear and clean.

    The following layout should be considered as standard:

    (title) Optimality and the Klingon vowel shift (speaker) Clark Kent
    ( (institution) Department of Astrology, Eastern
    Mars University

    The normal length for papers delivered at LAGB meetings is 25 minutes (plus
    15 minutes discussion).

    There is the possibility to submit abstracts for a themed session (or
    panel), i.e. groups of speakers can ask for a whole 2-hour themed session,
    and can apportion their time within that as they wish. All the abstracts
    for such a session will be considered together.

    The committee will plan the programme as soon as it has selected the
    successful abstracts, so please indicate on the anonymous abstracts if you
    cannot present your paper on either the second or third day of the
    conference (6th or 7th April). It is very difficult to reschedule papers
    after the programme has been planned.

    Content of abstracts

    The following guidelines may be useful:
    + You should clearly describe the paper's general topic. (The topic may be a
    problem of theory or analysis or set of data which have not previously been
    + You should describe your treatment of the topic, and how it relates to
    previous work on the same topic. (When referring to previous work, it is
    enough to quote "Author (Date)" without giving full bibliographical
    details.) It is not acceptable simply to promise a solution'.
    + You should explain how you will justify your treatment, and quote crucial
    evidence - you must trust the committee (and other conference attenders) not
    to steal your ideas before you have presented them. If you are taking a
    stand on a controversial issue, summarise the arguments which lead you to
    take up this position.

    Conference Bursaries

    Up to 10 bursaries are available for unsalaried members of the Association
    (e.g. PhD students) with preference given to those who are presenting a
    paper. Applications should be sent to the President, and must be received by
    the deadline for abstracts. Please state on your application: (a) date of
    joining the LAGB (applicants must have been a member at least since the date
    of the previous meeting); (b) whether or not you are a student; (c) if a
    student, whether you receive a normal grant; (d) if not a student, your
    employment situation. STUDENTS WHO ARE SUBMITTING AN ABSTRACT and who wish
    to apply for funding should include all the above details WITH THEIR
    ABSTRACT. The bursary normally covers a significant proportion of the
    conference expenses and of travel within the UK.
