   Fifth International Conference on Meaning-Text Theory (MTT '11)
                 8-9 September 2011, Barcelona, Spain

The Meaning-Text Theory is a holistic linguistic theory characterized
in particular by the central position of the lexicon, the primacy of
semantics, the importance of the communicative (= 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 - in particular, natural language processing.

After MTT '03 in Paris, MTT '05 in Moscow, MTT '07 in Klagenfurt and
MTT '09 in Montreal, this conference is the fifth in a series that
aims at bringing together researchers working on MTT and related
frameworks and their implementation in the framework of different
natural language processing applications. The conference will be held
in conjunction with the International Conference on Dependency
Linguistics ( to take place immediately before
MTT '11.  Unlike the previous MTT Conferences, MTT '11 will be
organized in terms of thematic tracks. This new format shall help
center the conference and stimulate in-depth contributions and
discussions at the conference. Submissions are invited on one of the
following themes, approached from the perspective of MTT or any other
related framework:

1. Fundamentals (semantics, syntax, morphology, phonology and their
   interaction), Chair: Sylvain Kahane
2. Dictionaries and Lexical Semantics, Chairs: Valentina Apresjan and
   Tilmann Reuther
3. Collocations, Chairs: Margarita Alonso Ramos and Leo Wanner
4. Semantic Derivation and Morphology, Chair: Maarten Janssen
5. Computational Applications, Chair: Igor Boguslavsky
6. Terminology, Chairs: Amparo Alcina and Marie-Claude L'Homme


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) and should indicate to which track
they are submitted. Style files for LaTeX and Word will be published
later in the website of the conference. All submissions will be
electronic in pdf format via EasyChair.
