Meeting Description:

Cybernetics of Language. August 1, 2004, Baden-Baden, Germany. Part of 16th International Conference on Systems Research, Informatics and Cybernetics (InterSymp 2004), to be held July 29 - August 5, 2004. CALL FOR PAPERS: LANGUAGE MANAGEMENT AND LANGUAGE ENGINEERING

16th International Conference on Systems Research, Informatics and
Cybernetics to be held July 29 - August 5, 2004 in Baden-Baden,
Germany announces Special Focus Symposium on:

Cybernetics of Language
August 1, 2004

Chair: Dr. Stijn Hoppenbrouwers,  University of Nijmegen, NL
Conference Chair: Prof. George E. Lasker, IIAS, Windsor, Canada

Focus of the Symposium

The focus is on theories, methods and practices concerning the control of and communication about language, in view of its (intended) use in some communicational context. In the center of our focus are processes that lead to language specifications (including all sorts of conceptual specifications) intended for computer-related use. However, related issues extend into the world of organizational communication, and far beyond (education, politics, technology, science, engineering, literature, art, etc.)

Though standardization (of terminologies, ontologies, etc.) is a powerful means of controlling language, it cannot be the whole answer. Language is an evolving creature by nature. Its evolution mostly takes place beyond explicitly exercised control, i.e. through ''natural change'', but it can also be subject to purposeful engineering or management. We are particularly interested in language evolution as part of processes for achieving shared meaning and understanding among conversation participants.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

-Theory and practices concerning language management and control
-The role of language in (2nd order) cybernetics and Conversation Theory
-Application of Conversation Theory to language management and control
-The role of language in evolutionary systems
-The role of language in information and knowledge system development
-Language-related aspects of formalization processes
-Language specification processes in knowledge engineering
-Language specification processes in information systems development
-Domain modeling and conceptual modeling processes
-Terminology management
-Processes or procedures in lexicology, translation, and localization
-Cognitive, social, or psycholinguistic aspects of (cooperative) conceptualization
-Support (computerized or otherwise) of cooperative conceptualization processes

Call for Papers

Papers are invited that address any of the above listed issues. Abstracts of approximately 200 words should be submitted for evaluation. All proposals will be judged on the basis of their scholarly quality, originality and potential for further discourse. Abstracts may be submitted electronically (Microsoft Word preferred), by e-mail by April 15, 2004 to:

Linguistic Sub-field: Applied Linguistics
Call Deadline: 20-Feb-2004

Meeting Description:

Linguists are not the only group of people entitled to consider questions of language. Spelling and non-sexist language changes, for example, concern large sections of the population; questions of
terminology or text readability are of interest to professional writers: choice of language(s) for a document, choice of the best discourse type for the intended audience, etc.  Linguists, however,
are obviously concerned by these issues. Sometimes, they are called on (or believe to be) to function as experts on these various issues âEuro" without their role necessarily being clearly defined.  The aim of the conference is to question this controversial idea of a linguistic perspective on social issues. In particular, we invite discussions on how a science like linguistics can get involved in debates without losing its scientific purpose, but feeding into them in order to arrive at a better understanding of the issues at stake. We invite you to submit a paper or a panel session proposal in line with the proposed topics of the conference. Methods and theoretical issues should be clarified. Thus, each submission should include a âEuro~social questioningâ Euro(tm), an argued âEuro~linguistic answerâEuro(tm), as well as, if possible, a critical reflection on the involvement of linguistics in the field considered.  Abstracts (between 2000 et 2500 characters) should be sent to the organizing committee before 20th February 2004, in electronic format (RTF), at the following address:


For panel sessions please submit a general framework, with a list of potential speakers. This list can be completed later (end of April). Submissions will be assessed and selected by the scientific committee of the conference.  Notification of their acceptance or refusal will be sent at the end of March.  In order to be published in the proceedings, the written contributions can be sent to the organizing committee after the conference, but before 30 November 2004. They, too, will be assessed and selected by the scientific committee, which will edit the publication.  Address for the submission of papers and panel session proposals Vals.Asla2004@unine.ch

Meeting Description:

Following successful recent meetings in Padova, Paris, Freiburg, Utrecht, Barcelona, Poitiers, Verona and Stafford, we are pleased to announce that the ninth EARLI SIG Writing conference will be held on September 20-22, 2004, at the University of Geneva, Switzerland. Geneva's international atmosphere and lakeside location make it a welcoming venue for the Writing 2004 conference. EARLI SIG
Writing is a special interest group of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction.  Its members come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including education, psychology, linguistics, computer science, rhetoric and literary studies. The aim of the conference is to promote interaction among researchers who are interested in understanding the cognitive, social and developmental processes involved in writing, who are concerned with designing
writing instruction in various educational settings, or with exploring the functions of writing in different social and institutional contexts.  The scope of the conferences has typically been very broad, and we hope to draw together once again a wide range of researchers and professionals in the area of writing.  We would therefore welcome submissions investigating the basic cognitive and social processes involved in writing, as well as research on the forms that writing instruction takes in specific contexts, and on the variety of purposes which writing can serve. We anticipate a dynamic and diverse meeting, and look forward to meeting old friends and to welcoming new ones.

7th INTEX/NooJ Workshop
Tours, June 7-9 2004

Call for papers - Deadline: March 31, 2004


Laboratoire d'Informatique de l'Université de Tours (E.A. 2101)

Langues et Représentation, Equipe de recherche en linguistique,
Université de Tours

LAboratoire de SEmioLinguistique, Didactique et Informatique
(E.A. 2281)

We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming seventh
INTEX/NooJ workshop, to be held in Tours, June 7-9 2004.

INTEX is a linguistic development environment that includes large-coverage dictionaries and grammars, and parses texts of several million words in real time. INTEX includes tools to create and maintain large-coverage lexical resources, as well as morphological and syntactic grammars. Dictionaries and grammars are applied to texts in order to locate morphological, lexical and syntactic patterns, remove ambiguities, and tag simple and compound words. INTEX can build lemmatized concordances of large texts from Finite-State or Context-Free grammars, and can accordingly perform transformation operations on texts in cascade, in order to annotate the text, or to generate paraphrases; these features, when applied in cascade, give INTEX the power of a Turing Machine. INTEX is used as a linguistic platform, an information retrieval system, to teach second languages, as a terminological extractor, as well as to teach computational linguistics to students.

NooJ, which uses a new technology, a new linguistic engine and a new interface, is meant to replace INTEX. NooJ's architecture was presented in the 5th INTEX Workshop (Marseille, June 2002) and its first alpha version was demoed at the 6th INTEX Workshop (Sofia, May 27-29 2003).

As in the previous workshops (1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003), this meeting will be the opportunity for INTEX and NooJ users, as well as other researchers interested in NLP, to meet and to exchange their experience of development, research or teaching. It will also be the occasion to present the recent developments of NooJ.

Please, send before March 31st 2004 a one-page abstract to Denis Maurel by email. The abstract, in French or English, should contain the title of the article, name, author affiliations, surface mail and electronic address of each author.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Authors will be notified whether their papers are accepted or rejected by April 15th 2004. The timeslot is 30 minutes for presentations (including 5 minutes for discussions).

After the conference, authors will be invited to send a definitive version of their papers for publishing. We are planning to combine a subset of the proceedings of the 6th and the 7th INTEX Workshops in a published volume.

Details concerning the workshop organization will soon be given on the
conferences website:

Linguistic Sub-field: Computational Linguistics
Call Deadline: 29-Feb-2004

Meeting Description:

Since 1995, the NLDB conference aims at bringing together researcher, industrials and potential users interested in various application of Natural Language in the Database and Information Systems field.  The integration of databases and natural language has been an utopia for
many years. However, progress has been made and this is now an established field thanks to developments in Natural Language and technologies that made the storage and manipulation of large electronic dictionaries possible. As Information Systems are now evolving into the communication area, the term databases should be considered in the broader sense of information and communication systems. The use of Natural Language in Software Engineering has
contributed to both improving the development process from the viewpoints of developers (improve the process of conceptual modelling, validation, etc) and the usability of applications by users (natural language query interfaces, semantic webs, etc).


Natural Language for Web Services (Semantic information retrieval, Semantic Web, Semi-structured models and associated languages, Web usage, content and structure mining for
discovering semantics, Concept taxonomies and web mining, Learning taxonomies and ontologies from the web, Information extraction with machine learning, Document classification and indexation)

Natural Language in Conceptual Modelling (Analysis of natural language descriptions, Requirement engineering, Terminological ontologies, Paraphrasing, Dynamic modelling, Verification, consistency checking, Metadata harvesting)

Natural Language Interfaces for Data Base Querying/Retrieval (Natural languages interfaces for database querying, Verification of database queries by paraphrasing, Semantic analysis for information retrieval, NL interaction with databases)

Natural Language-Based Integration of Systems (Linguistic aspects of view integration, Linguistic aspects of data warehouses, Natural language queries to multi-databases systems, Data
integration and data cleansing, Ontology driven integration, Ontology management)

Large Scale on-line Resources (Electronic dictionaries, Question-answer corpora, Informal
ontologies, Linguistic databases, Digital libraries)

Application of Computational Linguistics in Information Systems (Multilingual information systems, NLP in requirements engineering, NLP in knowledge management, Ontology-driven NLP, Semiotics and fundamentals)

Management of Textual Databases (Text classification, Information extraction and detection, Text
mining for creating metadata, Document management, Hypertext and Hyperbases)

The North American Chekhov Society
Chekhov Centenary Symposium

Anton Chekhov (1860-1904)

Call For Papers

The North American Chekhov Society (NACS) is issuing a call for papers  to be presented at the Chekhov Centenary Symposium that will take place  on Thursday, October 14, 2004, at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. The NACS Chekhov Centenary Symposium will be followed by a two-day  conference (October 15-16, 2004) dedicated to the American reception of  Chekhov. Participants in the latter meeting-- the full breadth of which  remains contingent on funding-- will include translators, theater scholars  and directors, writers and public critics, and physicians and scholars  working in the medical humanities. Prospective participants in the NACS  symposium can thus plan on attending three days of presentations and  roundtables on Chekhov, with all NACS papers to be delivered on  Thursday, October 14. The jubilee event will include Chekhov  performances and demonstrations by two New York theater groups.

Organizers of the Chekhov Centenary Symposium welcome the broadest range  of scholarly approaches and topics. Papers may be delivered in English or Russian and should be twenty minutes long. Graduate students working on Chekhov are encouraged to present. A title and abstract must be submitted no later than May 31, 2004.

Colby College is situated in Waterville, Maine, an hour-plus drive from the airports in Portland and Bangor, or three hours by car north of Boston, and six hours southeast of Montreal. Information on travel and accommodations will be sent to participants in June, 2004.

Please send two copies of your title and abstract, one to each of the conference co-organizers, by post or e-mail. Include your name, address,  telephone, e-mail, fax, and institutional affiliation.
