Workshop on Cross-linguistic Variation in Auxiliary Selection
Short Title: Workshop on Auxiliaries

Date: 31-MAY-03 - 01-JUN-03
Location: Davis, CA, United States of America
Contact: Raúl Aranovich
Contact Email: raranovich at ucdavis.edu
Meeting URL: http://linguistics.ucdavis.edu/workshop.html

Linguistic Sub-field: General Linguistics
Call Deadline: 23-Apr-2003

Meeting Description:

Many languages show a split in the distribution of perfect
auxiliaries. In French, Dutch, Italian, and German, for instance, some
verbs select the 'be' auxiliary, while others select the 'have'
auxiliary. Recent work on split auxiliary systems highlights the role
of lexical-semantic factors such as animacy, telicity, volitionality,
etc., in the formulation of auxiliary selection constraints. This
approach receives support from an emerging wealth of evidence from
cross-linguistic variation and language development, and from less
studied languages (Yiddish, Old Spanish, etc.). These data challenge
many of the received views about perfect auxiliary selection. The
organizer invites submissions on topics related to the
lexical-semantics of auxiliary selection, studies of language
development or cross-linguistic variation of split auxiliary systems,
or theoretical approaches to auxiliary selection.

NOTE Extended deadline: 4/23/03

Linguistic Sub-field: Computational Linguistics
Call Deadline: 05-May-2003

This is a session of the following conference: 2003 EUROLAN Summer
School on The Semantic Web and Language Technology

Meeting Description:

This workshop will provide a forum for discussion between leading
names in the field and researchers involved in the development of
ontology-based IE systems or semi-automatic tools for building
ontologies. We would like to invite researchers, master and
Ph.D. students to submit their original and unpublished work to the
workshop. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: semantic
annotation, content-based indexing and retrieval, robust analysis of
language data, text mining, platforms for semi-automatic ontology
extraction, formalisms for ontology representations.

Ontologies and Information Extraction
International Workshop held as part of the
EUROLAN'03 Summer School
July 28 - August 8, 2003
Bucarest, Romania

Call for Papers
Information Extraction systems were designed to filter, to select and
to classify the increasing amount of information available nowadays,
mainly on the Web. Most of them were based on shallow natural language
processing techniques, but semantics was not really used, due to the
unavailability of generic ontologies.

During last years, some generic ontologies become available and a lot
of research projets tried to take into account semantic aspects to
obtain more precise results for IE systems.  Meanwhile, important
efforts concentrate on developping tools for semi-automatic building
of domain-specific ontologies, based on IE and text-mining techniques.

This workshop will provide a forum for discussion between leading
names in the field and researchers involved in the development of
ontology-based IE systems or semi-automatic tools for building
ontologies. We would like to invite researchers, master and
Ph.D. students to submit their original and unpublished work to the
workshop. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

-       semantic annotation;

-       content-based indexing and retrieval;

-       robust analysis of language data;

-       text mining;

-       platforms for semi-automatic ontology extraction;

-       formalisms for ontology representations.

Submission Requirements
Authors are invited to submit a 4-6 pages extended abstract in
electronic form (postscript or PDF) by 05th May 2003. Authors of
accepted papers should submit the final version in electronic format
not later than 15th of June.

The documents must be in either postscript or pdf format (PDF is
encouraged, but postscript documents are acceptable as well). If you
have problems delivering your paper in one of these formats, please
contact the organising comittee. Maximum length of paper should be
about 10 pages. This workshop uses the same guidelines as
EACL-2003. The instructions can be found at
http://ic.epfl.ch/~pallotta/ontoIE/. Please do not insert page
numbers, headers or footers. If you have any problem following the
style please contact the organising committee as soon as possible.

All the papers should be send to Amalia.Todirascu at utt.fr
