Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
Call Deadline: 30-Jun-2007
Annual meetings of the Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation (PACLIC) have provided places where scholars in theoretical and computational linguistics mainly from the Pacific Asia region get together to share new ideas about language, information and computation. The conference focuses on studies of diverse langauges used in the Pacific-Asia region like Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, etc.
The 21st PACLIC will be held at Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea, on November 1-3, 2007. It will be hosted by the Korean Society for Language and Information. We invite prospective authors to submit abridged versions of original and unpublished papers on all aspects of theoretical and computational linguistics. Priority will be given to papers that are interdisciplinary and cover a wide range of languages in Asia. Outstanding papers will be considered as candidates for the best paper prize.
Annual meetings of the Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation (PACLIC) have provided places where scholars in theoretical and computational linguistics mainly from the Pacific Asia region get together to share new ideas about language, information and computation.
The 21st PACLIC, organized under the auspices of the PACLIC Steering Committee, will be held at Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea, on November 1-3, 2007. It will be hosted by the Korean Society for Language and Information. Following the tradition of previous PACLIC meetings in Hong Kong (2001), Jeju, Korea (2002), Singapore (2003), Tokyo, Japan (2004), Taipei (2005), and Wuhan, China (2006), PACLIC21 emphasizes the integration of theoretical frameworks with applied fields, cognitive accounts for language processing, and computational modeling of language.
We invite prospective authors to submit abridged versions of original and unpublished papers on all aspects of theoretical and computational linguistics. Possible topics include but are not limited to: (1) language, (2) information, and (3) computation. Priority will be given to papers that are interdisciplinary and cover a wide range of languages in Asia. Outstanding papers will be considered as candidates for the best paper prize.
Abridged papers should not exceed 3,000 words including the bibliography. Author information should appear on a separate page with (1) the topic area of the paper: (language and/or information and/or computation), (2) the title of the paper, (3) name(s) of the author(s), (4) affiliation(s), (5) postal address(es), (6) e-mail address for correspondence, and (7) the preference for oral or poster presentation. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. The deadline for paper submission is June 30, 2007. Papers should be submitted online at http://paclic21.snu.ac.kr .
Important dates of PACLIC21:
Due date for abridged paper submission: June 30, 2007
Acceptance notification to authors: August 15, 2007
Due date for the camera-ready full paper: September 15, 2007
Due date for early registration: October 1, 2007
PACLIC21 meeting: November 1-3, 2007
For further information about the paper submission and PACLIC21 in general, please contact the program committee chair Hee-Rahk Chae at paclic21hufs.ac.kr or at hrchaehufs.ac.kr .
Message 2: Quatifier Modification

Linguistic Field(s): Semantics; Syntax
Call Deadline: 08-Mar-2007
From the eighties onwards, logicians and linguists have studied the properties of quantifying expressions by assigning them generalised quantifier meanings. While this line of research has been successful in isolating formal generalisations about the expression of quantity, it has ignored the internal composition of complex quantifiers.
Recently, the modificational structures within complex quantifiers have gained a fair amount of attention, mostly thanks to studies of a.o. modified numerals, negative and negated quantifiers, focus-sensitive operators, approximatives and except phrases. These studies yield a richer analysis of natural language quantifiers than was possible given the coarse level of generalisation of Generalised Quantifier Theory. Additionally, these studies shed light on the cross-categorial application of some modifiers.
The general aim of the workshop 'Quantifiers and Modification' is to bring together researchers of different fields (syntax, semantics, logic) and thereby deepen our understanding of the role of modification in the diverse landscape of natural language expressions of quantity.
The theme of the workshop brings up questions like the following:
- Is it tenable to retain a single analysis for any modifier? Or should its use within the domain of quantifiers be seen as separate?
- What are the restrictions on the combinations of quantifiers and modifiers and what is the nature (semantic, syntactic or other) of these restrictions?
- Is there cross-linguistic variation w.r.t. these restrictions?
- What is the categorial status of a modified quantifier?
- How do the formal properties of modifiers relate to the formal results familiar from generalised quantifier theory?
