      > FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
      >
      > Tilburg University will host the Seventh International Workshop on
      > Computational Semantics (IWCS-7), which will take place on 10-12
      > January 2007. The aim of the workshop is to bring together
      > researchers interested in any aspects of the computation, annotation,
      > extraction, and representation of meaning in natural language,
      > in multimedia objects, and in multimodal messages.
      >
      >
      > TOPICS OF INTEREST
      >
      > Areas of special interest for the workshop will be computational
      > aspects of semantic theories; theoretical aspects of the design of
      > language understanding systems and systems for multimodal
      > communication; and semantic annotation of natural language and
      > multimodal utterances. Papers are invited that are concerned with
      > topics in these and closely related areas, including, but not
      > limited to, the following:
      >
      > * construction of representations of meaning in natural language
      > * methodologies and practices for semantic annotation
      > * modelling and using context in semantic interpretation
      > * machine learning of semantic structures
      > * formal and computational methods in lexical semantics
      >
      > * computing meaning in multimodal interaction
      > * construction and use of underspecified semantic representations
      > * semantic concepts and ontologies
      > * approaches to textual entailment
      > * the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue acts
      >
      > * the semantic web and natural language processing
      > * semantic aspects of language generation
      > * the semantics-pragmatics interface in computational perspective
      > * semantic relations in discourse and dialogue
      > * shallow and deep semantic processing and reasoning

      > SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
      >
      > Three types of submission are solicited: full papers, short papers,
      > and project abstracts.
      >
      > Full papers
      > -----------
      > Full papers are original papers of maximally 12 pages, that will be
      > published in the workshop proceedings and will have a full oral
      > presentation of about 30 minutes at the workshop.
      >
      > Short papers
      > ------------
      > Short papers are mini-papers of maximally 4 pages, that will be
      > published in the workshop proceedings and have a very brief ('flash')
      > oral presentation at the workshop. Authors of short papers are
      > invited to also put up a poster and participate in a poster session.
      >
      > Project abstracts
      > -----------------
      > Project abstracts are brief descriptions of 2 pages of ongoing,
      > recently completed, or starting projects. They will be published in
      > the workshop proceedings and will be presented in a poster session.
      >
      > Submission formats
      > ------------------
      > Submissions of all three types should be in postscript or pdf
      > format and prepared with LaTeX; see the IWCS-7 website
      > http://let.uvt.nl/research/ti/sigsem/iwcs/iwcs7 for more
      > information on the style files to be used. The page limits
      > presuppose standard 11 point Computer Modern font. Final versions
      > of accepted contributions will have to be submitted as LaTeX
      > source files to facilitate publication of the proceedings; we also
      > aim at publishing a selection of accepted papers in book form
      > after the workshop.
