                     Sponsored by ACL/SIGPARSE

                        17-19 October, 2001
                          Beijing, China



The Institute of Computational Linguistics, Peking University, Beijing,
China, will host the 7th International Workshop on Parsing Technologies
(IWPT'01) from 17 to 19 October, 2001.

IWPT'01 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;
Boston/Cambridge (Massachusetts) in 1997; and Trento (Italy) in 2000.

Topics of interest for IWPT'01

Topics of interest for IWPT'01 include, but are not limited to:
theoretical and practical studies of parsing algorithms for natural
language sentences, texts, fragments, dialogues, ill-formed sentences,
speech input, multi-dimensional (pictorial) languages, multimedia
(web) documents, and parsing issues arising or viewed in a multimodal
context. Both grammar-based and statistical approaches are welcome.

Submitting Papers

Two types of submissions are invited:

- full papers, to be presented as such during the workshop and to be
  published in the workshop proceedings (maximally 12 pages);
- short papers, to be presented at the workshop in the form of a poster
  plus a summary oral presentation in a short-paper session; two-page
  summaries are published in the workshop proceedings.

Prospective authors are invited to send submissions to the IWPT'01
programme chairman Giorgio Satta. Papers must be in the format given
at the IWPT'01 home pages (see below). Full papers should not exceed
12 pages; short papers should not exceed 1500 words. Submission
is electronically, in postscript form.  Only in case electronic
submission is impossible, four (4) hard copies of the paper should be
sent. Send papers to:
