    University of Exeter, United Kingdom: 19-22 November 2000
    The Natural Language Translation Specialist Group of the British
    Computer Society and the University of Exeter announce an
    international conference to be held at the University of Exeter, UK
    from Sunday evening 19 November to Wednesday morning 22 November 2000.
    The event is a follow-up of the successful conference 'Machine
    Translation: Ten Years On' held in 1994 at Cranfield University, UK.
    Against the backdrop of an increasingly multilingual society, MT 2000
    looks at the main challenges to MT and multilingual NLP at the dawn of
    the new millennium. The focus of this year's conference is not only
    recent machine translation research and products, but also the latest
    multilingual developments in general. There are contributions from
    researchers, users, educationalists and exhibitors in the field of
    multilingual language engineering. Further information can be obtained
    from our website at http://www.bcs.org.uk/siggroup/sg37.htm.

    Lancaster (UK), 30 March - 2 April 2001
    Incorporating a celebration of the life and works of Geoffrey Leech, with
    invited talks from:
    Prof. Douglas Biber - "Historical shifts in modification patterns with
    complex noun phrase
    structures:  How long can you go without a verb?"
    Prof. Jennifer Thomas - "Negotiating meaning: a pragmatic analysis of
    indirectness in political interviews"
    Prof. Geoffrey Sampson - "Thoughts on Twenty Years of Drawing Trees"
    Prof. Mick Short - "Style in Fiction and Non-fiction: A Corpus-based
    approach to Speech,
    Thought and Writing Presentation"
    Corpus Linguistics 2001 will be a forum for all concerned with the
    computer-assisted empirical analysis of natural language. Our definition
    of 'corpus' is broad, and we therefore welcome those working on
    substantial literary texts or other kinds of text collection as well as
    more 'traditional' corpus linguists.
    Similarly, we wish to encourage further cross-fertilisation between work
    occurring in language engineering (e.g. information extraction,
    parsing) and linguistics. We believe that corpus linguists should be aware
    of the latest developments in language processing. We also believe that
    language engineers should be aware of the findings and needs of corpus
    The aims of Corpus Linguistics 2001 are:
    1. to encourage dialogue between those working on similar issues in
    different languages and between areas with a (perhaps as yet
    untapped) potential to interact.
    2. to encourage dialogue between researchers using corpora in linguistics
    and those using corpora in language engineering.
    3. to celebrate the life and works of Geoffrey Leech.
    Geoffrey Leech reaches 65 in 2001, and as part of the celebrations for
    this event, a special series of lectures will be given during the
    conference by four invited speakers who have worked closely with Geoff at
    various stages in his career: Doug Biber, Jenny Thomas, Geoff Sampson and
    Mick Short.
    For the main conference, papers of ca. 20 minutes are invited on topics
    such as:
    - corpus-based studies of any language level in any language
    - contrastive corpus linguistics
    - computer-aided studies of style
    - corpus- or text-based lexicography
    - corpus/text building, encoding and annotation
    - development of corpus-based language engineering tools
    - applications of computer-aided text analysis in non-linguistic fields
    (market research,
        advertising, media studies, sociology, psychology, etc.)
    Proposals for workshops (half day or full day) are also invited. Topics
    broadly in line with the theme of the conference will be
    considered. Workshops will be held on the 29th March. The conference
    language will be English.
    Abstracts of up to one page should be submitted to the Programme Committee
    by 1st Dec 2000.  As well as an outline of the paper, the abstract should
    include the authors' names, affiliations, and contact addresses (including
    e-mail and fax numbers).
    Abstracts of two pages should be submitted to the Programme Committee by
    1st Dec 2000. The abstract should include the names of the organisers,
    their contact details, and the projected number of papers to be presented
    at the workshop. Workshop organisers should also indicate whether they
    wish to generate a set of proceedings for their workshop.
    Those proposing a software demonstration should additionally indicate in
    detail what (if any) hardware and software requirements they have.
    Proceedings will be produced from the conference. Additionally, selected
    papers will appear in an edited collection to be published in honour of
    Geoffrey Leech.
    Deadline for abstracts: 1 December 2000
    Proposers notified of acceptance of workshops: 8 December 2000
    Authors notified of acceptance of papers: 15 December 2001
    Deadline for full papers (for proceedings): 13 February 2001
