Call Deadline: 01-Jun-2011

Meeting Description:

The Meaning-Text Theory is a holistic linguistic theory characterized, in
particular, by the central position of the lexicon, the primacy of semantics,
the importance of the communicative (= information) structure, and the
reliance on dependencies at all levels. MTT has been extensively
developed over the last four decades with respect to its coverage of
linguistic phenomena and application in a variety of research fields - in
particular, natural language processing.

After MTT '03 in Paris, MTT '05 in Moscow, MTT '07 in Klagenfurt and MTT
'09 in Montreal, this conference is the fifth in a series that aims at bringing
together researchers working on MTT and related frameworks and their
implementation in the framework of different natural language processing
applications. The conference will be held in conjunction with the
International Conference on Dependency Linguistics
(http://www.depling.org/) to take place immediately before MTT '11.

Unlike the previous MTT Conferences, MTT '11 will be organized in terms
of thematic tracks. This new format shall help center the conference and
stimulate in-depth contributions and discussions at the conference.

Call for Papers:

Submissions are invited on one of the following themes, approached from
the perspective of MTT or any other related framework:

- Fundamentals (semantics, syntax, morphology, phonology and their
interaction), Chair: Sylvain Kahane
- Dictionaries and Lexical Semantics, Chairs: Valentina Apresjan and
Tilmann Reuther
- Collocations, Chairs: Margarita Alonso Ramos and Leo Wanner
- Semantic Derivation and Morphology, Chair: Maarten Janssen
- Computational Applications, Chair: Igor Boguslavsky
- Terminology, Chairs: Amparo Alcina and Marie-Claude L'Homme

Submission Format:

(including all figures, data, notes, and bibliography) using a 12 point font,
