           First International Conference on Computational Logic, CL2000
                          Imperial College, London, UK
                             24th to 28th July, 2000


    Due largely to the difficulties caused by related conferences having
    submission dates at about the same time, the submission deadline for
    CL2000 is postponed to

                         Monday 21st February, 2000.

    If you wish to take advantage of this extension, you are asked to email
    the Chair of the Stream to which you intend to submit the title, author(s),
    abstract, and keywords for your paper *as soon as possible*.

    Highlights of the conference include 8 invited speakers, 12 tutorials, and
    a strong workshop programme held in-line with the conference. Collocating
    with CL2000 are DOOD2000, LOPSTR2000, and ILP2000. Full details about the
    conference, including the email addresses of the Stream Chairs, are given
    at the above URL.

            Call for Proposals: Software Demonstrations Program

    Demonstrations Chair:

    Jeff Reynar
    Microsoft Corporation


    The ANLP-NAACL2000 Program Committee invites proposals for the
    Demonstrations Program for ANLP-NAACL 2000, to be held at the Westin Hotel
    in Seattle, Washington, USA, May 1-3, 2000. The goals of this program are to
    encourage both the early exhibition of research prototypes and the
    demonstration of mature systems (commercial sales and marketing activities
    are not appropriate in the Demonstration program, and should be arranged as
    part of the ANLP-NAACL2000 Exhibit Program).

    Areas of Interest

    We would like to encourage the submission of proposals
    for demonstrations of software related to all areas of
    computational linguistics. Areas of interest include, but are
    not limited to:

    Natural language processing systems, including
    Dialogue systems and interfaces
    Machine translation systems and translation aids
    Message and narrative understanding systems
    Language-oriented information retrieval and information extraction systems
    Application systems using embedded language technology components
    Reusable components (parsers, generators, speech recognizers, etc.)
    Software tools for facilitating computational linguistics research
    Software for demonstrating or evaluating computational linguistics research
    Aids for teaching computational linguistics concepts

    Format for Submission

    Demo Proposals consist of the following parts, which should all be sent to
    the Demo Chair (electronic submissions preferred).

    An abstract of the technical content to be demonstrated, not to exceed two
    pages, including title, authors, full contact information, references and
    acknowledgements. (This will be published in an addendum to the proceedings,
    so please submit in camera ready format.)

    A detailed description of hardware and software requirements expected to be
    provided by the local organizer. Demonstrators are encouraged to be flexible
    in their requirements (possibly with different demos for different
    logistical situations). Please state what you can bring yourself and what
    you absolutely must have provided. We will do our best to provide equipment
    and resources but nothing
    can be guaranteed at this point beyond space and power. Please contact the
    demo chair at one of the addresses below for any specific questions.

    A "Script Outline" of the demo presentation, including accompanying
    narrative, and either a web address for accessing the demo or visual aids
    (e.g. screen-shots, snapshots, or sketches). No more than 6 pages, total.

    Submissions Procedure

    Proposals should be submitted as soon as possible, but before March 15th, to
    the ANLP-NAACL2000 Demonstrations Chair. Please submit your proposals and
    any inquiries to:

    Jeff Reynar
    Microsoft Corporation
    One Microsoft Way
    Redmond, WA 98052-6399

    Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their relevance to
    computational linguistics, innovation, scientific contribution,
    presentation, and user friendliness, as well as potential logistical

    Other Details

    Further details on the timing and format for the demonstrations sessions
    will be determined and provided at a later date. We anticipate charging a
    $40 fee for presenting demos, to help defray costs.

    Important Dates

    Submission Deadline for Demo Proposal: 15 March 2000

    Notification: 1 April 2000
    Conference Dates: 1-3 May 2000

             Subject: Second International Workshop on Hybrid Logic (HyLo

    >> From: Carlos Areces <carlos@wins.uva.nl>

                       Twelfth European Summer School
                     in Logic, Language and Information
                           August 6-18, 2000
                       Birmingham, Great Britain

                         WORKSHOP ON HYBRID LOGICS
                       (Bringing Them All Together)

                              CALL FOR PAPERS


    Modal logic suffers from a certain asymmetry: even though the basic
    semantic notion in modal languages is truth at a state, classical
    modal logics lack the expressive power to talk about the states
    themselves. Whether we think of states as intervals, geometric points,
    nodes in a feature structure, or individuals in a description, this is
    a genuine weakness.

    Hybrid Logics are modal languages which use "terms as formulas".
    Although they date back to the late 1960s, the last three years have
    seen a resurgence of interest, with new results in expressivity,
    interpolation, complexity, and proof techniques. It has also become
    clear that hybrid logics offer a theoretical framework for uniting the
    work of a surprisingly diverse range of research traditions.

    This workshop is likely to be relevant to a wide range of people,
    including those interested in description logic, feature logic, modal
    logics for information systems, temporal logic, and labelled deduction
    for modal logic. Moreover, if you have an interest in the work of the
    late Arthur Prior, note that this workshop is devoted to exploring
    ideas he first introduced 30 years ago --- it will be an ideal
    opportunity to see how his ideas have been developed in the
    intervening period.

    In this workshop we hope to bring together researchers and students
    from all the different fields just mentioned (and hopefully some
    others) in an attempt to explore just what they all have (and do not
    have) in common. If you're unsure whether your work is of relevant to
    the workshop, please check out the newly opened Hybrid Logic Site:

    TSD Series

    TSD series evolved as a prime forum for interaction between researchers in both spoken and written language processing from the former East Block countries and their Western colleagues. Proceedings of TSD form a book (currently published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series).
