Architectures and Mechanisms for Language Processing, 2003

Short Title: AMLaP 2003
Location: Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
Date: 25-Aug-2003 - 27-Aug-2003
Call Deadline: 05-May-2003

Web Site: http://amlap.psy.gla.ac.uk

Contact Person: Patrick Sturt
Meeting Email: amlap at psy.gla.ac.uk
Linguistic Subfield(s): Psycholinguistics

Meeting Description:

AMLaP is an interdisciplinary conference on human language
processing. The aim of the conference is to bring together
psychological, computational, and theoretical perspectives on the
cognitive mechanisms which underlie any aspect of human language
processing. Submissions which integrate experimental psycholinguistic
evidence with formal or computational models of psychological
processes are especially encouraged.

Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):
        dialogue processing
       	computational models
	lexical processing
	cross-linguistic studies
	parsing and interpretation
	language production
	learning mechanisms
	statistical mechanisms
	connectionist models
	corpus-based studies
	computer simulations
	discourse
	models of acquisition

Keynote speakers:
Michael Tanenhaus (University of Rochester), Jonathan Ginzburg (King's
College London), Peter Hagoort (Donders Institute, University of
Nijmegen)

Submission Procedure

The deadline for the submission of abstracts of both spoken and poster
presentations is Monday, May 5th 2003.

Abstracts must be no more than 400 words (excluding references),
written in plain ASCII format, and should observe the following
format:

    * At the top of the abstract, please include authors' names, and
      email addresses

    * Please leave several blank lines before indicating whether the
      abstract is for consideration as a PAPER or as a POSTER, and
      giving the title. Abstracts rejected as papers will
      automatically be considered as posters unless explicit
      instructions to the contrary are given.

    * The subject of the message should be: ''abstract submission''.

Abstracts should be e-mailed to: amlap-submission at psy.gla.ac.uk
Notifications of acceptance will be sent before June 9th.

MTT 2003
First International Conference on Meaning-Text Theory
Paris, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Salle Dussane
16-18 June 2003

- --------------------------------------------------------------------
Goals
- --------------------------------------------------------------------

Meaning-text Theory (MTT), which grew out of work on machine
translation in the USSR 40 years ago, is characterized by:

1. the Modeling of language as a correspondence between meaning and
texts/sounds;
2. the central position of the lexicon;
3. the privileged position of semantics over syntax;
4. and the use of a dependency representation in syntax.

This conference has two goals: researchers working in the MTT
framework will report on their research, and researchers in other
frameworks are invited to compare their work to MTT.

- --------------------------------------------------------------------
Invited Speakers
- --------------------------------------------------------------------

Jurij Apresjan         Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation
Richard Hudson         University College London, UK

- --------------------------------------------------------------------
Expected Submissions
- --------------------------------------------------------------------

Submissions related to all aspects of MTT are solicited, be they
theoretical, descriptive, or computational.

The conference is also open to MTT-based work in fields related to
linguistics, such as natural language processing, second language
teaching, or psycholinguistics.

Submissions detailing work in other frameworks are also solicited, as
long as the framework shares with MTT fundamental principles, such as
dependency syntax, the decomposition of lexical meaning, the modeling
of collocations, the stratification of the linguistic model, or the
use of correspondence rules between different levels of
representation.

- --------------------------------------------------------------------
Submission Format
- --------------------------------------------------------------------

Submissions can be in French or in English.  They should be at most 10
pages (including all figures, data, notes, and bibliography) using a
12 point font, printed in one column.  Style files for Word and LaTeX
will be available on the web site.

Submissions should be sent as PDF or postscript file to:
mtt2003.submit at linguist.jussieu.fr

For any questions, please email mtt2003 at linguist.jussieu.fr
