Sixth Conference of the European Chapter
of the Association for Computational Linguistics

21-23 April 1993
Onderzoeksinstituut voor Taal en Spraak (OTS)
Research Institute for Language and Speech
University of Utrecht, The Netherlands

Purpose: This conference is the sixth in a series of biennial
conferences on computational linguistics sponsored by the European
Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics. Previous
conferences were held in Pisa (September 1983), Geneva (March 1985),
Copenhagen (April 1987), Manchester (April 1989) and Berlin (April
1991). Although hosted by a regional chapter, these conferences are
global in scope and participation. The European Chapter represents a
major subset of the ACL. The conference is open to both members and
nonmembers of the Association.

Scope: Papers are invited on all aspects of computational linguistics,
including, but not limited to: morphology, syntax, semantics,
discourse analysis, pragmatics, grammar formalisms, formal languages,
software tools, knowledge representation, AI-methods in computational
linguistics, analysis and generation of language, computational
lexicography and lexicology, lexical databases, machine translation,
computational aids to translation, speech analysis and synthesis,
natural language interfaces, dialogue, computer-assisted language
learning, corpus analysis and corpus-based language modelling, and
information retrieval and message understanding.

Special Sessions/Tutorials: The Programme Committee plans special
sessions around the following themes:
- logic and computational linguistics
- data-oriented methods in computational linguistics

This thematic orientation will be further developed in a tutorial
programme to be held the day preceding the conference (20 April 1993).
Details will be provided in the circular of October 1992.

Submission: Authors should submit an extended abstract of their
papers, or in case of hardcopy 6 copies, to the Programme Committee at
the following address:

EACL-93 Programme Committee
Trans 10
NL-3512 JK Utrecht
The Netherlands
Phone: (+31) 30-392531
Fax: (+31) 30-333380
Email: eacl93@let.ruu.nl

The first page should include the title, the name(s) of the author(s),
complete addresses (including e-mail), a specification of the topic
area (one or two keywords, preferably from the list above), and an
indication of whether the paper addresses one of the themes of the
Special Sessions. The extended abstract should not exceed 5 pages A4.
It should contain sufficient information to allow the referees and the
Programme Committee to determine the scope of the work and its
relation to relevant literature. Contributions should report on
original research that has not been presented elsewhere. Electronic
submission is preferred, using standard LaTeX or plain ASCII. In case
of problems with this, contact the organizers at the above address.
For future final versions, hardcopy or LaTeX files will be accepted.

Schedule: The deadline for submission is 1 December 1992. Authors
will be notified of acceptance by 1 February 1993. Camera-ready
copies of the final papers must be postmarked before 5 March 1993, and
received by 12 March 1993, along with a signed copyright release
statement. Papers not received by the due date will not be included
in the conference proceedings, which will be published in time for
distribution to everyone attending the conference.

Programme Committee: The Programme Committee will be co-chaired
by Louis des Tombe, Steven Krauwer and Michael Moortgat (OTS, Utrecht).

Local Arrangements: Contact Nadine Buenen or Joke Dorrepaal at the above
address. More information on local arrangements will be provided in the
next circular.

Other Activities: A programme of demonstrations and exhibits is
planned. For information, contact the EACL address above.
