Paper submission deadline for the MTT 2007 Conference extended to  
February, 25th!

	May 21 - 24, 2007, Klagenfurt, Austria

information structure), and the reliance on dependencies on all
levels. 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 that aims at bringing together researchers working
on MTT, other dependency-based linguistic theories and computational
applications drawing upon dependency theories. The special goal of
this conference is to open MTT more to researchers working in related
