    We are pleased to announce an international interdisciplinary
    workshop to be held at Paris-Sorbonne University on November 15th

    developed at CELTA (Centre de Linguistique Théorique et Appliquée).

    The 3rd Workshop aims at discussing foundational issues of language
    studies introducing interactive methods which are step by step being
    derived from research in the AI domain, especially Knowledge
    Discovery from Databases (KDD) and diverse programming paradigms.

Keywords: information – semantic roles - meta-information -
attention-driven centring of utterance - subjecthood and topicality –
predication – context - speech acts – modularity - multi-agent systems -
distributed systems.
