** Participate in MW2005 **
If you missed the deadline for paper proposals, but have a great project to
showcase, you can still participate in MW2005. You have until December 31,
2004 to propose to demonstrate your Web site. See

Vendors of museum interactive multimedia technology, content management and
design services should consider the Exhibit Hall. See the prospectus at

** Scholarships **
Every year Archives & Museum Informatics sets aside a proportion of MW
registration fees to sponsor a Scholarship Program. To be eligible you must
have made a significant contribution to the development of a cultural or
heritage Web site, and must demonstrate that you would not be able to
attend the meeting without support. Professionals from the developing world
are strongly encouraged to apply.

In addition, thanks to the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN),
fifteen competitive scholarships to MW2005 are available specifically for

Call for Papers
Cross-Modular Approaches to Ellipsis
   Workshop August 8-12, and organized as part of the 17th European Summer
School on Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI) August 8-19, 2005,
Edinburgh, Scotland
Workshop Organizers:
   Jennifer Spenader (j.spenader(a)gmail.com)
   Petra Hendriks (p.hendriks(a)let.rug.nl)
Workshop Purpose
The area of ellipsis resolution and generation has long been neglected in work
on natural language processing, and there are few examples of systems or
computational algorithms. However, the misuse or non-use of ellipsis in
highly preferred contexts can make a dialogue difficult to understand similar
to the way inappropriate referential expressions can impede comprehension.
This workshop will provide a forum for researchers to present data that give
insights into the nature and function of ellipsis from a discourse
perspective as well as present methods to deal with ellipsis in NLP
   Additionally, we encourage discussion about how information from several
knowledge sources (syntax, semantics, pragmatics, world knowledge) can be
used to resolve and generate elliptical expressions, emphasizing approaches
that draw on empirical results or have been tested in actual implementations.
   More specifically, we encourage contributions related to :
* implemented ellipsis resolution algorithms that incorporate information from
more than one linguistic module
* appropriate generation of ellipsis
* studies of ellipsis in dialogue and the relation of ellipsis to discourse
* formalized treatments of ellipsis that incorporate semantic, pragmatic and
discourse structural information
* corpus studies of ellipitical phenomena
* elicitation tasks that give insights into interpretation or generation of
elliptical phenomena
Submission details:
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract. Submissions should not
exceed 6 pages. The following formats are accepted: PDF, PS, ASCII text.
Please send your submission by email to j.spenader(a)gmail.com by the
deadline listed below. As reviewing will be blind, please refrain from
including identifying information on submitted abstracts. Instead the
accompanying email should contain contact information about the author(s).
The submissions will be reviewed by the workshop's Program Committee and
additional reviewers. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop
proceedings published by ESSLLI. The final versions will be done and latex
and more information will be given later to accepted authors.
Workshop format:
   The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants. It
will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive days in
the first or second week (not yet determined) of ESSLLI. There will be two
slots for paper presentation and discussion per session. On the first day the
workshop organizers will give an introduction to the topic.
