 International Conference on computational linguistics and its

		 June 10-15, 1997, Moscow, Russia

 Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to inform you about DIALOGUE'97, an international
conference on computational linguistics and its applications,
which will take place June 10-15, 1997 in a country side near
Moscow, Russia. The conference revived the tradition of the
interdisciplinary DIALOGUE seminars which were regular national
annual events in the USSR during 70s-80s. The conference title
means that it is a meeting place for a dialogue: 

a) between researchers from different fields that are related to
 computational linguistics (linguists, computer scientists, cognitive
 scientists, psychologists);

b) between researchers from the former USSR and from the
 international community in computational linguistics.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* theoretical and cognitive linguistics
* syntax, semantics, pragmatics and their interaction
* multilingual natural language processing
* systems for natural language processing
* text, dialogue and speech act in the computational framework

The number of participants is expected about 100. Every
prospective attendee is required to submit a short research
summary including relevant recent publications, regular and
e-mail address, fax and phone numbers.

Participants who wish to present their work are additionally
required to submit a poster (3-4 double-spaced pages, 6-8 kB) or
a full paper (not exceeding 12 double- spaced pages, 24
kB). Please send submissions preferably via e-mail (in plain
ASCII or uuencoded Winword files) to the address of the Program
Committee before February 1, 1997. Submissions in Russian and
English are equally accepted. We plan to organize selected
English-to-Russian and Russian-to-English translation of talks.

Addresses for all correspondence:
Snail mail:
 Russian Instititue for Artificial Intelligence
 P.O.Box 111, Moscow,
 103001, Russia.

 Deadline for submission: February 1, 1997
 Notification of acceptance: March 1, 1997
 Final paper due: March 25, 1997

In the field of computational linguistics in Russia conferences
DIALOGUE became a regular event which attracts the leading
researchers from the former USSR as well as foreign
researchers. We hope that DIALOGUE'97 will continue this
