    Call for Papers: Beyond PARSEVAL
       -- Towards Improved Evaluation Measures for Parsing Systems --


    LREC 2002 Workshop
    2nd June
    Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain

    The aim of this workshop is to start an initiative by bringing together
    four relevant parties:

       - researchers in symbolic and stochastic parsing
       - builders of annotated corpora
       - representatives from different syntactic frameworks
       - groups with interests in and proposals for parser evaluation

    Papers on the following topics will be particularly welcome:

       - descriptions of experiments using alternative evaluation measures
         with existing (stochastic or symbolic) parsers, focussing on
         comparison and discussion of qualitative differences

       - methods for creation of evaluation (or training) corpora, allowing
         flexible adaptation to a new evaluation standard based on
         dependencies or grammatical relations

       - comparisons of existing or possible new schemes for dependency-based
         evaluation (differences, similarities, problems)


    Abstracts for workshop contributions should not exceed two A4 pages
    (excluding references). An additional title page should state: the
    title; author(s); affiliation(s); and contact author's e-mail address,
    as well as postal address, telephone and fax numbers.

    Submission is by email, preferably in Postscript or PDF format, to:

    to arrive by 1st February 2002. Abstracts will be reviewed by at least 3
    members of the program committee.

    Formatting instructions for the final full version of papers will be
    sent to authors after notification of acceptance.


       1 February 2002 deadline for receipt of abstracts
       22 February 2002 notification of acceptance

       2 June 2002 workshop


    Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden
    April 11 - 13 2002.

    Key-stroke logging has, to date, been used in linguistics to investigate
    syntactic development in the L2, for examining written discourse
    development and to compare discourse flow and linguistic information
    structuring in speech and writing.

    The Symposium aims to bring together those developing the
    technology, those currently undertaking research using key-stroke logging
    and analysis tools, and those who are interested in learning more about
    this exciting development in writing research methodology in an informal
    symposium setting. We hope that this this also promote new collaborative
    research in this field.

    Details about the symposium, how to register and submit a paper
    will be found at:

                           GRAMMAR CONFERENCE

    National Technical University of Athens, Greece.
    3-5 July 2002


    Abstract submission receipt deadline: 15 February 2002
    Submissions should be sent to the LFG Program Committee
                                        (see addresses below)

    LFG-2002 welcomes work both within the formal architecture of
    Lexical-Functional Grammar and typological, formal, and computational
    work within the 'spirit of LFG', as a lexicalist approach to language
    employing a parallel, constraint-based framework. The conference aims
    to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers interested in
    nonderivational approaches to grammar, where grammar is seen as the
    interaction of (perhaps violable) constraints from multiple levels,
    category information, grammatical relations, and semantic information.
    Further information about the syntactic theory LFG can be obtained from: and
