                    TOPICS OF INTEREST
 
The workshop will focus on the computational aspects of formal
semantic theories and on theoretical issues involved in the
development of natural language processing systems. Papers are sought
in areas which include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
 
* underspecified semantic representations: definition and use
* use of context in interpretation
* the semantics - pragmatics interface
* dynamic interpretation in text and dialogue
* incremental interpretation
* language and visual information
* speech acts and interpretation
* information packaging
* computational lexical semantics
* context modelling
* interpretation and inference

                     IMPORTANT DATES
 
Submission of preliminary papers          15 September, 1996
Notification of acceptance                30 October, 1996
Final papers due                          15 November, 1996
Workshop                                  8 - 10 January, 1997
 
 
                     GUIDELINES FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS
 
Papers should be submitted by email in Postscript form. Accepted
papers will be published in the proceedings, which will be available
at the time of the conference; we also aim at publishing a selection
of the accepted papers in book form. All papers should contain:
 
- a list of approximately 5 keywords
- an abstract
- a conclusion section
 
The title page of each paper should contain the names, addresses,
phone and fax numbers, and email addresses of all authors.
 
For the production of the proceedings, final versions of accepted
papers will have to be submitted in LaTeX form; it is therefore
advisable to use LaTeX from the start. Please use the following LaTeX
format as the basis for producing the Postscript file:
 
\documentstyle[11pt,a4,epsf]{article}
\setlength{\textwidth}{15cm}
 
Please refer to bibliographical items using author names and year of
publication, rather than by numbers, and sort the bibliography
alphabetically.
