                          ESSLLI-98 Workshop on
             MUTUAL KNOWLEDGE, COMMON GROUND AND PUBLIC INFORMATION
                           August 24 - 28, 1998

                       A workshop held as part of the
        10th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
                               (ESSLLI-98)
                August 17 - 28, 1998, Saarbrueken, Germany

                        ** FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS **


ORGANISERS: Wolfgang Heydrich and Hannes Rieser (Hamburg/Bielefeld)

Web site: http://www.dcs.warwick.ac.uk/~esslli98/workshops.html

BACKGROUND
The topic of the workshop is in the common focus of several disciplines:
cognitive science, linguistic pragmatics & semantics, philosophical logic,
AI, and psychology.  It concerns research in areas like discourse analysis,

coordination, presupposition and accomodation, as well as the formal
reconstruction of dialogue and interaction.  There are obvious connections
to problems of group-epistemology and general (philosophical) concepts like

intersubjectivity.  The topic constitutes a field of discussion where
empirical and formal methodologies meet (from controlled experiments and
discourse analysis to, say, non-well-founded set theory).

We invite contributions from all the fields mentioned above, which may
focus on:

  - foundational problems (epistemic logic, social ontology, set theory),
  - descriptive and experimental work in psychology, linguistics and
    ethnomethodology,
  - applications in models of agent's behaviour based on e.g., intention
    analysis, Gricean accounts or speech act theory,
  - computer simulation implementing the concepts mentioned.

WORKSHOP FORMAT:
The workshop will consist of five sessions (90 min. each) of presentation
and discussion of contributed papers.  It will take place during the second

week of the Summer School and will be open to all members of the LLI
community.

SUBMISSIONS:
All reserchers in the area, but especially Ph.D. students and young
reserachers, are encouraged to submit a two-page abstract (hard copies or
by e-mail) to one of the following addresses:

MAIN SESSION
- ----------
We invite original, unpublished work on any topic of general linguistic
interest.

Invited Speakers:
Diana Archangeli (University of Arizona)
David Dowty (Ohio State University)

PANELS
- ----
We invite original, unpublished work which addresses one of the panel
topics below.

*** The Status of Constraints in Linguistic Theory ***
		Friday, April 17

How effective a tool are constraints in theoretical linguistics, as
opposed to other methods of expressing generalizations? How are
linguistic constraints best expressed (e.g., as absolute or stochastic,
ranked or weighted, etc.)?

Invited Speakers:
John McCarthy (University of Massachusetts at Amherst)
Jerrold Sadock (University of Chicago)

*** CHIPHON '98: The Acquisition of Spoken Language ***
		Saturday, April 18

In this parasession, we address data from first and second language
acquisition and other perceptual learning and how they should be
incorporated into phonological and phonetic theory. We invite papers
that treat the acquisition of spoken language (production and
perception) as integral to the development of linguistic theory.

Invited Speakers:
James Flege (University of Alabama at Birmingham)
Peter Jusczyk (Johns Hopkins University)
Robert Port (Indiana University)

*** Language Acquisition and the Lexicon ***
		Sunday, April 19

What bearing do the facts of L1 and L2 acquisition have on linguistic
models of the lexicon? How do we evaluate models of the lexicon?

Invited Speakers:
Joan Bybee (University of New Mexico)
David Pisoni (Indiana University)
Terry Regier (University of Chicago)

- -----------------------------------------------------------
Guidelines for Submission:

Please submit ten copies of a one-page, 500-word, anonymous abstract for
a twenty-minute paper (optionally, one additional page for data and/or
references may be appended), along with a 3" by 5" card with:
	(1) your name,
	(2) your affiliation,
	(3) your address, phone number, and e-mail address,
	(4) the title of the paper, and
	(5) an indication for which panel or which particular subdivision
		of the main session (e.g., Phonetics, Phonology, Syntax,
		Semantics, Historical Linguistics, etc.) the paper is intended.
The abstract should be as specific as possible, and it should clearly
indicate the data covered, outline the arguments presented, and include
any broader implications of the work. An individual may present at most
one single and one co-authored paper. Authors must submit a camera-ready
copy of the paper at the time of the conference in order to be
considered for publication. Only a selection of the papers presented at
CLS 34 will be published.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is JANUARY 31, 1998. Send
abstracts to:

	Chicago Linguistic Society
	1050 E. 59th Street
	Chicago, IL  60637
	(773) 702-8529

Abstracts may also be submitted by e-mail, provided they conform to the
following guidelines:
	E-mail abstracts must be submitted as attachments to an e-mail message.
They may not be contained within the body of a message. The body of the
message should contain your name, affiliation, address, phone number,
and e-mail address, the title of your paper, and the panel or
subdivision of the main session for which the paper is intended. Any
document found to contain any sort of virus will be deleted without
consideration. The only acceptable formats for submissions are ASCII
text, WordPerfect, Microsoft Word, and LaTeX or TeX source. We generally
discourage the use of nonstandard fonts, since we can not always
decipher them. If you feel your abstract requires the use of special
fonts, you should consider submitting it by post. E-mail abstracts
should be submitted to cls at tuna.uchicago.edu.

Information may be obtained by visiting our website at
http://humanities.uchicago.edu/humanities/cls/cls.html, by writing to
