      2005 International Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC'05)
     International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery

                  27 - 29 August 2005, Changsha, China

               *** Submission Deadline: 15 March 2005 ***


The ICNC=A1 05-FSKD=A1 05 will feature the most up-to-date research results
in computational algorithms inspired from nature, including biological,
ecological, and physical systems. It is an exciting and emerging inter-
disciplinary area in which a wide range of techniques and methods are
being studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems.
The joint conferences will also promote cross-fertilization over these
exciting and yet closely-related areas. Registration to either conference
will entitle a participant to the proceedings and technical sessions of
both conferences, as well as the conference banquet, buffet lunches, and
tours to some attractions in Changsha.

Specific areas include, but are not limited to neural computation,
evolutionary computation, quantum computation, DNA computation, chemical
computation, information processing in cells and tissues, molecular
computation, computation with words, fuzzy computation, granular
computation, artificial life, swarm intelligence, ants colony, artificial
immune systems, etc., with applications to knowledge discovery, finance,
operations research, and more.

Call for Papers: ESSLLI'05 Student Session

We are pleased to announce the Student Session (StuS) of the 17th
European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI'05,
8-19 August, Edinburgh, http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/esslli05/). We invite
papers for oral and poster presentation from the areas of Logic,
Language and Computation.
The ESSLLI Student Session encourages submissions from students at any
level, undergraduate, as well as postgraduate. This year, unlike in the
past, papers can be submitted for oral OR poster presentation

Student authors are invited to submit a full paper, not to exceed 7
pages of length exclusive of references. Papers are to be submitted
with clear indications of the selected modality of presentation, i.e.
oral or poster. The submissions will be reviewed by the student session
program committee and selected reviewers.

The preferred formats of submissions are PostScript, PDF, or plain
text, although other formats will also be accepted.

The paper and a separate identification page must be sent
electronically to: gervain_at_sissa.it.

Deadline: 22nd February 2005.

For more information and the technical details of the submission, see:

         Subject: ESSLLI Workshop: Formal semantics and cross-linguistic data

Formal semantics and cross-linguistic data
15-19 August 2005

organized as part of
European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information
ESSLLI 2005 http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/esslli05/
8-19 August, 2005 in Edinburgh

Workshop Organizers:
    Helen de Hoop H.deHoop_at_let.ru.nl
    Joost Zwarts J.Zwarts_at_let.ru.nl

Workshop Purpose:
The purpose of this workshop is to strengthen the ties between formal
semantic methods and theories on the one hand and data from lesser-studied
languages across the world on the other hand. Both formal semantics and
descriptive and typological linguistics will benefit from more interaction
in this area. The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD students
and researchers to present and discuss their work with colleagues and
researchers who work in the broad subject areas represented at ESSLLI.

Workshop Topics:
Most formal semantic and pragmatic work is done on (Indo) European
languages, especially English. Only a small, but growing, number of formal
semanticists are involved in descriptive and typological linguistics
involving languages from other continents and some promising work has
already been done on topics such as quantification, number, tense, aspect,
and modality. We think it is of utmost importance for the development of
formal semantic and pragmatic theories to broaden the empirical database. In
this way, linguistic typology can provide us with a new perspective on
semantic and pragmatic analyses, while in addition formal accounts can offer
more precise criteria for a proper treatment of semantic and pragmatic
variation. For this workshop, we solicit original contributions that either
apply formal semantics-pragmatics in the analysis of lesser-studied
languages or in which theory formation crucially draws on data from such
languages or comparison between languages.
