The scientific societies DGfS, GI, GLDV, ITG/DEGA and OeGAI jointly organize a
biannual conference for natural language processing. The next conference,
KONVENS-94, will be held in Vienna, Austria, from September 28th to 30th.
KONVENS aims to provide a representative picture of current research activities
from all subfields of natural language processing. To achieve this goal the
participation of researches from all relevant disciplines like computer science,
artificial intelligence, linguistics, philosophy, psychology and electrical
engineering is encouraged. We expect contributions about topics from basic as
well as applied research and innovative applications.

For every KONVENS a special topic is chosen. For KONVENS-94 this will be
 T h e l e x i c o n i n n a t u r a l l a n g u a g e p r o c e s s i n g

language processing are invited.
