    Finite State Methods in Natural Language Processing
    ESSLLI Workshop, August 20-24 2001, Helsinki


    Finite state methods are used in various areas of linguistic
    computation, including tokenization, lexicography, spell checking,
    part of speech tagging, speech recognition, grapheme to phoneme
    conversion, computational phonology and morphology, as well as
    computational syntax.

    In recent years the use of finite state methods has increased both in
    practical applications (such as in morphological analyzers for a
    variety of languages), as well as in more theoretical approaches (such
    as in recent attempts to formalize optimality-theoretic analyses in
    phonology by finite-state means).

    The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and
    Ph.D. students working with finite-state methods within natural
    language processing and computational linguistics.

    The workshop belongs to the program of the 13th European Summer School
    in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI) which is organized at the
    University of Helsinki from August 13 until August 24, 2001 (see the
    home page http://www.helsinki.fi/esslli for more information).

                        * SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS *

                           third workshop on



                      Siena, Italy, June 18-20, 2001


                    (Submission deadline: March 15, 2001)


    Traditional inference tools (such as theorem provers and model
    builders) are reaching new levels of sophistication and are now widely
    and easily available. A wide variety of new tools (statistical and
    probabilistic methods, ideas from the machine learning community) are
    likely to be increasingly applied in computational semantics. Most
    importantly of all, computational semantics seems to have reached the
    stage where the exploration and development of inference is one of its
    most pressing tasks - and there's a lot of interesting new work which
    takes inferential issues seriously.

    The Workshop on Inference in Computational Semantics (ICoS) intends to
    bring researchers from areas such as Computational Linguistics,
    Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, and Logic together, in
    order to discuss approaches and applications of Inference in natural
    language semantics.
