                         LEXICOM-EUROPE 2007

            A Workshop in Lexicography and Lexical Computing
                 Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic.
                           June 4th-8th 2007

Led by Sue Atkins, Adam Kilgarriff and Michael Rundell of the Lexicography
MasterClass, Lexicom is an intensive one-week workshop, with seminars on
theoretical issues alternating with practical sessions at the computer.
There will be some parallel 'lexicographic' and 'computational' sessions.
Topics to be covered include:

* corpus creation
* corpus analysis:
    o software and corpus querying
    o discovering word senses, recording contextual information
* Frame Semantics and its application to lexicography
* writing entries for dictionaries and lexicons
* dictionary databases and writing systems
* using web data

Applications are invited from people with interests and experience in any
of these areas.

Over the last seven years Lexicom workshops (in Europe and in Asia) have
attracted well over 200 participants from 32 countries, including
lexicographers, computational linguists, professors, research students,
translators, terminologists, and editors, managers and technical support
staff from dictionary publishers and information-management companies.

The venue, Brno, the beautiful and ancient capital of Moravia, is the
Czech Republic's second city.

To register for Lexicom, go to: http://nlp.fi.muni.cz/lexicom2007
Early registration is advised. The workshop has been oversubscribed
in previous years. Registrations received before the 22nd of April
carry a discounted fee.

Last Call for Papers/Abstracts and Invited Sessions Proposals for
Info-CybernEthics 2007, (Orlando, Florida, USA. July 8-11, 2007):

Papers/Abstract Submissions and Invited Sessions Proposal: April 30th
Authors Notification: May 17th
Camera-ready, full papers: May 31st

All Submitted papers will be reviewed by a double-blind (at least
three reviewers), non-blind, and participative peer review. These
three kinds of review will support the selection process of those
that will be accepted for their presentation at the conference, as
well as those to be selected for their publication in JSCI Journal.

Authors of the best 10%-20% of the papers presented at the conference
will be invited to adapt their papers for their publication in the
Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (JSCI), with no
additional cost. The libraries of JSCI's authors will receive a
complimentary subscription for at least one year (six issues).

There will be electronic (virtual pre-conference and post-conference
sessions) for each one of the conference sessions, so the authors can
interact with each other, providing comment and constructive
feedback, before and after the conference days.

The registration fee of effective invited session organizers will be
waived and they will receive at the registration desk, for free, a
package of 4 DVDs and one CD containing the 6-hour tutorial
"Fundamentals and History of Cybernetics: Development of the Theory
of Complex Adaptive Systems". The market price of this package is US
$ 295. Twelve more benefits for invited session organizers are listed
at WMSCI 2007 web page.

For submissions or Invited Sessions Proposals, please go to the
conference web site (the menu's option "Invited Sessions/Invited
Session Organizers").

WMSCI 2007 Organizing Committee

4th International Workshop on Constraints and Language Processing
                20-21 August 2007, Roskilde, Denmark


Affiliated with CONTEXT07, http://context-07.ruc.dk

DEADLINE for submissions: May 24, 2007

The CSLP_at_Context07 workshop considers the role of constraints in
the representation of language and the implementation of language
processing. This theme should be interpreted inclusively:
contributions from linguistics, computer science, psycholinguistics
and related areas are welcome, and an interdisciplinary perspective
is of particular interest.

The collocation with the CONTEXT07 conference underlines the
application of constraints for context comprehension and discourse

Constraints are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and
psychology. How they are used, however, varies widely according to the
research domain: knowledge representation, cognitive modelling,
problem solving mechanisms, etc. These different perspectives are
complementary, each one adding a piece to the puzzle. For example,
linguistics proposes in-depth descriptions implementing constraints
in order to filter out structures by means of description languages,
constraint ranking, etc. The constraint programming paradigm, on the
other hand, shows that constraints have to be taken as a systematic
whole and can thus play a role in building the structures (or can even
replace structures). Finally, psycholinguistics investigates the role
of constraint systems for cognitive processes in comprehension and
production as well as addressing how they can be acquired.

Invited speakers:
2 or 3 distinguished researchers will be announced on the workshop
web pages.

The workshop seeks contributions from different areas working with
constraints in relation to language including, but not limited to the

   . Constraints in human language comprehension and production
   . Context modelling and discourse interpretation
   . Acquisition of constraints
   . Constraints and learning
   . Cross-theoretical view of the notion of constraint
   . New advances in constraint-based linguistic theories
   . Constraint satisfaction (CS) technologies for NLP
   . Linguistic analysis and linguistic theories biased towards CS or
     constraint logic programming (CLP)
   . Application of CS or CLP for NLP
   . CS and CLP for other than textual or spoken languages, e.g.,
       sign languages and biological, multimodal human-computer
       interaction, visual languages,
   . Probabilistic constraint-based reasoning

Authors are invited to submit extended abstract or a full paper of up
to 12 pages. Papers should be prepared as PDF files using the format
for Springer's LNCS/LNAI series,

Each submission will be commented by two or three reviewers.

Preliminary proceedings are distributed at the workshop and,
depending on number and quality of submissions, a volume of revised
and selected papers are under considerations at an international

Please submit papers as PDF files, following the guidelines to appear
at http://control.ruc.dk/CSLP2007.html
