        6th International Workshop on Parsing Technologies

                     Sponsored by ACL/SIGPARSE

                        20-22 December, 1999

The ITC-IRST (Institute for Scientific and Technological Research)
in Trento, in the North of Italy, will host the 6th International
Workshop on Parsing Technologies (IWPT'99) from 20 to 22 December,

IWPT'99 continues the tradition of biennial workshops on parsing
technology organised by SIGPARSE, the Special Interest Group on
Parsing of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL).  This
workshop series was initiated by Masaru Tomita in 1989.  The first
workshop, in Pittsburgh and Hidden Valley, was followed by workshops
in Cancun (Mexico) in 1991; Tilburg (Netherlands) and Durbuy (Belgium)
in 1993; Prague and Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic) in 1995; and
Boston/Cambridge (Massachusetts) in 1997.

More information will soon be available on the IWPT'99 home page:

Topics of interest for IWPT'99
Theoretical and practical studies of parsing algorithms for natural
language sentences, texts, fragments, dialogues, ill-formed sentences,
speech input, multi-dimensional (pictorial) language; also parsing issues
arising or viewed in a multimodal context. Both grammar-based and
statistical approaches are welcome.
