Third International Conference on Meaning-Text Theory (MTT)
       May 21 - 24, 2007, Klagenfurt, Austria

Call for Papers

The Meaning-Text Theory is a holistic linguistic dependency-based
theory characterized in particular by the central position of the
lexicon, the primacy of semantics, and the importance of the
communicative structure. MTT has been extensively developed over the
last four decades with respect to its coverage of linguistic phenomena
and application in a variety of research fields - among them natural
language processing (in particular text generation) and second
language learning and teaching.

After MTT '03 in Paris and MTT '05 in Moscow, this conference is the
third in a series of conferences which aims at bringing together
researchers working on MTT, other dependency-based linguistic theories
and computational applications that draw upon dependency theories. The
special goal of this conference is to open MTT more to researchers
working in related frameworks.

A social program will be offered before the main conference. After the
main conference, a tutorial on natural language generation in the
framework of MTT is planned.


We invite submissions on all topics related to MTT and other
grammatical and lexical frameworks that share with MTT the fundamental
principles such as dependency, the primacy of the lexicon,
stratificational nature of the linguistic model, etc.


Submissions must be in English. They may not exceed 10 pages in length
(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 of the conference soon. The
submission format must be pdf.

The electronic submission web site will be made known shortly. No
hardcopy or email submissions addressed to the conference organizers
will be accepted.
