Subject: Student Session at ACL


Student Session at the
29th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

18-21 June 1991
University of California
Berkeley, California USA

PURPOSE: The goal of this session is to provide a forum in which
graduate student members can present WORK IN PROGRESS and receive
feedback from other members of the computational linguistics community,
particularly senior researchers. The session(s) will be workshop-style,
consisting of short paper presentations and discussion. Note that
having a student session for the presentation of ongoing work in NO way
influences the treatment of student-written papers submitted to the main
conference. Rather, the student session will provide an entirely
separate track emphasizing students' work in progress rather than
completed work.

REQUIREMENTS: Papers should describe original, unpublished work in
progress that demonstrates INSIGHT, CREATIVITY, and PROMISE. Topics of
interest are the same as for the main conference. Authors must have ACL
Student Membership at the time of the conference. For membership
information contact Don Walker at the address below. Because of
differences in FOCUS (complete results vs. work in progress) and
SUBMISSION FORMAT, papers submitted to the main conference can not be
considered for the student session. Students may of course submit
papers to both.

FORMAT FOR SUBMISSION: Authors should submit four copies of an extended
abstract 2 pages long (including title, authors, references, etc).
Chosen abstracts will be printed in the conference proceedings directly
from the submissions. Submissions therefore should be final
camera-ready copy (preferably laser-printer output), laid out in the
conventional double-column conference format. In addition, a SEPARATE
``topic area'' page should include the title, name(s) of the author(s),
complete addresses (including e-mail), and one or two keywords
indicating the topic area. Send to:

The Third European Summer School
in Language, Logic and Information

Universitaet des Saarlandes
August 12-23, 1991

I. General Information

The Third European Summer School in Language, Logic and Information will
be held at the Universitaet des Saarlandes, Saarbruecken, from August 12
to 23. The school is organised by the European Foundation for Logic,
Language and Information. Financial support has been granted by the
Commission of the European Communities in the framework of the ERASMUS
Programme.Additional financial assistance will be obtained through the
University of Saarbruecken and several national organisations and
industrial sponsors.A meeting of the European Foundation for Logic,
Language and Information will be held in conjunction with the Summer
School. The first two Summer Schools took place at the
Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, the Netherlands, in 1989 and at the
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, in1990. Both events were very

The main focus of the Summer School is the interface between
linguistics, logic and computation, where this interface is the result
of research into the logical, computational and cognitive foundations of
natural language. This year's courses are divided into four areas:
Computational Linguistics, Linguistics and Cognition, Logic and
Computation, and Semantics. They cover a variety of topics from fields
of study such as theoretical and computational linguistics, logic and
philosophy of language.

The School will contain three closely related but distinct components.
First, there is a fully integrated program of taught courses, at both
introductory and advanced levels. Introductory courses are designed to
familiarise students with new fields and do not presuppose any
background knowledge, while advanced courses are designed to allow
students, staff and researchers to acquire more specialised expertise in
areas they are already familiar with. Second, there is a series of
workshops which provide a forum for in-depth discussion of topics which
are at the forefront of current research. And third, there will be a
series of invited lectures by well-known experts in the field. A list
of the courses and workshops offered can be found in the enclosed
