    Edilog 2002 will be the sixth in a series of workshops that aims to
    bring together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of
    dialogues in fields such as artificial intelligence, formal semantics
    and pragmatics, computational linguistics, philosophy, and psychology.

    We invite abstracts on all topics related to the semantics and
    pragmatics of dialogues, including, but not limited to:

    - models of common ground/mutual belief in communication
    - modelling agents' information states and how they get updated
    - multi-agent models and turn-taking
    - goals, intentions and commitments in communication
    - semantic interpretation in dialogues
    - reference in dialogues
    - dialogue and discourse structure
    - interpretation of questions and answers
    - nonlinguistic interaction in communication
    - natural language understanding and reasoning in spoken dialogue systems
    - multimodal dialogue systems
    - dialogue management in practical implementations
    - categorisation of dialogue moves or speech acts in corpora
    - designing and evaluating dialogue systems

    24th Annual Conference: TRANSLATING AND THE COMPUTER

                                                    21-22 November 2002

                                                              CBI, London

            Organised by Aslib/IMI and supported by EAMT, IAMT, ITI and BCS

    This conference is one of the few international events which focuses on the
    user aspects of translation software and as such has been particularly
    beneficial to a very wide audience including translators, business
    managers, researchers and language experts.

    Once again, this year the conference will address the latest developments
    in translation (and translation-related) software. It will address the
    needs of the following conference attendees:

    - industry
    - public administration
    - agencies
    - freelancers
    - development

    This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at the
    conference. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the user
    aspects of translation or translation-related software rather than on
    theoretical issues. Presentations accompanied by demonstrations are
    especially welcome.


    The range of topics includes (but is not limited to)

    - use of MT systems
    - machine-aided translation and translation aids
    - controlled languages and their use in MT
    - speech translation
    - terminology
    - localisation
    - multilingual document management/workflow
    - case studies of technology-based solutions
    - the Internet and translation aids/services
    - the value of free versus charging services/sites on the Internet


    Authors are required to submit an abstract of a MINIMUM of 500 words of the
    paper they would like to present, together with an outline of the structure
    of the paper and short BIOGRAPHY.
    Abstracts should be sent by post or email before 20th June 2002 to:

    Nicole Adamides, Conference Organiser
    Aslib, The Association for Information Management
    Staple Hall, Stone House Court, London, EC3A 7PB

       The abstracts will be considered by the Programme Chairs, namely:

    Daniel Grasmick, SAP; Professor Ruslan Mitkov, University of Wolverhampton;
    Chris Pyne, Lionbridge Technologies Deutschland and Olaf-Michael Stefanov,
    United Nations.

    The authors of abstracts will be notified of acceptance or rejection of
    their submissions by 1 August 2002. The full length versions of the
    accepted papers (authors will be provided with detailed camera-ready copy
    guidelines) will be included in the conference proceedings and must be
    submitted by 10th October 2002.

             Subject: Please join the ELO Symposium this Sat

    The Electronic Literature Organization's Symposium is April 4-6 in LA.

    If you can't make it in person, please join us online Saturday the 6th
    from 12-1 PT (20:00 hours GMT)

    What we'll discuss:

    The electronic writing and art communities are
    intertwined to the point where no one can tell where
    one ends and one leaves off. This meeting will be one
    in a series of meetings proposed at other conferences
    including Incubation in July 2002 and Hypertext02 in
    June 2002.

    This is a chance to meet fellow creators of electronic
    art/music/literature and explore:

       How can we use the online environment to further
    collaborations between artists and writers?

       How do the online environment and other new media
    tools modify the relationship between writing,
    language, imagery, culture, and ethnicity?

       How has online communication and coordination changed
    art and writing?

       How are lines between art and literature blurring?

       What new ways are we using to communicate with art
    and writing?
