Material Electronic Text: MLA 2004

This MLA panel sponsored by the Association for Computers in the Humanities
seeks to offer papers devoted to a consideration of the materiality of the
electronic text, broadly understood.

Through the 1980s and 1990s, much of the work on hypertext trumpeted the
immateriality of the electronic text: it was freed from the constraints of
book form, limited library shelves, tight publishing budgets, and geographical
distance. The electronic text slipped the surly bonds of earth.

Papers are invited that will re-consider the materiality of the electronic
text in various ways, a critical turn in the study of digital textualities
that N. Katherine Hayles recently called 'the new materialism.' Possible
topics include but are not limited to:

* electronic archives
* archiving electronics
* digital representation of textual artifacts
* textual representation of digital artifacts
* materialities specific to digital texts
* access to and preservation of electronic texts
* data formats and obsolescence

Discussion of particular projects is welcome, as are papers proposing a more
theorectical or historical focus. Please send 200 word abstracts (in the body
of an email) by 15 March 2004 to Aimée Morrison at aimee.morrison@ualberta.ca.

Catalog'04 will be the eighth 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. The Dial/Log
conferences are always stimulating and fun and Barcelona, which will host
ACL 2004 immediately following Catalog'04, is a great place to visit.
Barcelona will also host, during the summer of 2004, its 'Forum 2004', a
huge cultural fair full of events, exhibits, and performances
(<http://www.barcelona2004.org/eng/>http://www.barcelona2004.org/eng/). So
mark your calendar now.

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
- ellipsis resolution 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

                         ** CALL FOR PAPERS **

                      5th International Workshop on
              Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-04)

                   A workshop to be held at COLING-04
                   the 20th International Conference
                      on Computational Linguistics

                        Geneva, 29 August 2004

Large linguistically interpreted corpora play an increasingly
important role for machine learning, evaluation,
psycholinguistics as well as theoretical linguistics. Many
research groups are engaged in the creation of
corpus resources annotated with
morphological, syntactic, semantic and discourse
information for a variety of languages. We aim to bring
together these activities in order to identify and disseminate
best practice in the development and utilization of
linguistically interpreted corpora.

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate
research results with resprect to the annotation,
conversion and exploitation of corpora taking into account
different applications and theoretical investigations in
the field of language technology and research. We invite
submissions of papers constituting substantial, original,
and unpublished work on all aspects of linguistically
interpreted corpora, including, but not limited to:
- creation of practical annotation schemes
- efficient annotation techniques
- automation of corpus annotation
- tools supporting corpus conversions
- validation including consistency checking of corpora
- browsing corpora and searching for instances of linguistic phenomena
- relating actual annotation to contemporary linguistic theory
- interpretation of quantitative results
- use of annotated corpora in the automated induction of linguistic knowledge

Rob Malouf, Assistant Professor at the Department of Linguistics and
Oriental Languages at San Diego State University, will be our keynote speaker.
