                       ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

Papers are invited on all aspects of computational linguistics in a broad
sense, including but not limited to:

Quote:> theoretical issues of CL in its relations to linguistics, mathematics,

  computer science and cognitive science
Quote:> computational models of (sub)systems of natural language and of human

  communication (phonemics, morphemic, syntax, semantics, pragmatics,
  parsing and generation, discourse, speech acts and planning)
Quote:> linguistic contributions to

  - natural language dialog systems, intelligent and cooperative question
    answering
  - machine (aided) translation
  - speech understanding and voice output procedures
  - systems for text generation
  - systems for use and preparation of dictionaries for humans and machines
  - intelligent text editors
Quote:> knowledge representation and inferencing

  - language comprehension
  - automatic creation of knowledge bases from texts

Quote:> hardware and software support for language data processing
> computational tools for language learning and teaching

Papers should report on substantial, original and unpublished research and
should indicate clearly the position of the work described within the
context of the research in the given domain and emphasize what new results
have been achieved.

Authors should submit four (4) copies of an extended abstract not
exceeding seven (7) double-spaced pages plus a title page including the
name(s) of the author(s), complete address, a short (five-line)
summary, and a specification of the topic area.

Abstracts must be received not later than 10 December 1987 by the
Chairperson of the Program Committee:
                        Dr. Eva Hajicova (COLING-88)
                        Charles University
                        Faculty of Mathematics, Linguistics
                        Malostranske n. 25
                        CS-118 00 Praha 1, Czechoslovakia

Authors will be notified of acceptance by 28 February 1988.  Camera-ready

COLING-88 is sponsored by the International Committee on Computational
Linguistics.  It is organized by the John von Neumann Society for
Computing Sciences in cooperation with the Computer and Automation
Institute and the Institute for Linguistics, both of the Hungarian
Academy of Sciences.

COLING-88 will be preceded by tutorials and workshops, and immediately
followed by the 3rd EURALEX Congress on all aspects of lexicography,
also to be held in Budapest.
