LGC2010 - 29th International Conference on Lexis and Grammar
Belgrade, Serbia, September 15- 18 2010


Jurij Apresjan (Russian Academy of Sciences)
Greville G. Corbett (University of Surrey)


The 29th International Conference on Lexis and Grammar will take place
in Belgrade, Serbia, September 15 - 18, 2010.

The Conference welcomes innovative papers on the formal description of
languages, as well as on the construction, management and use of
language resources, including manually constructed lexicons and
grammars. In addition, it aims at bringing together linguists and
computer scientists. The Conference will combine a general session and
a thematic session.

Submissions for the general session may address any of the topics of
the Conference:

- Lexis: lexical phenomena and their processing with special attention
  to possibility to formalize them for various purposes such as text
  analysis, multi-word units, processing of monolingual and
  multilingual corpora, etc.
- Grammatical phenomena and their processing
- The interface between lexis and grammar
- Theoretical and methodological innovations concerning processing of
  lexis and grammar
- Interlingual similarities and differences in the field of lexis and
  grammar (contrastive approach, aligned corpora, etc.)
- exploitation of language resources (including manually constructed
  lexicons and grammars) for language processing (including parsing
  and natural language generation as well as applications such as,
  information retrieval, information extraction),

The thematic session of the 29th International Conference on Lexis and
Grammar is dedicated to the problem of ambiguity and its implications
both in linguistics and natural language processing. Ambiguity is one
of the main issues both in linguistics and NLP because:

- it arises on the large scale in all languages;
- the resolution of ambiguity is indispensable for humans to
  understand any message;
- the resolution of ambiguity represents a preliminary step in
  automatic text processing that has to be done before any other
  application (analysis, machine translation, etc.).

The articles that are dealing with following aspects of ambiguity
would be welcome:

- lexical, morphosyntactic and syntactic ambiguity, as well as
  ambiguity between frozen and non-frozen expressions;
- the automatic treatment of ambiguity, since the number of tags
  assigned to a word form is proportional to its degree of ambiguity.

Authors are asked to send their extended abstracts anonymously by
e-mail with the title of the paper, name(s) and affiliation included
in the body of the message.
Abstracts should not exceed six pages (including data, diagrams and
references) formatted with one-inch (2.5 cm) margins on all sides, 1.5
line spacing with text in Times New Roman 12-point type. Submissions
should be sent both as PDF and MS-Word attachments to the following
e-mail address:
Notification: The authors are notified of the result in a message
including the comments from the reviewers. These comments are sent to
authors to help them prepare their presentation or understand the
assessment of their submission. Guidelines for final submissions will
be sent to authors with the notification. Accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings (hard copy, with ISBN
number). A selection of the papers presented at the conference will be
published in a special volume of the journal Infotheca..

Important dates:
- Submission deadline: June 6, 2010
- Notification of acceptance: July 1, 2010
- Final version (max. 8 pages, bibliographical references included):
  August 1, 2010
