First Call for Participation

ISDD 06 - International Symposium: DISCOURSE and DOCUMENT
Caen (France) 15-16 June 2006

http://discours2006.info.unicaen.fr/

****************************

In connection with the development of digital documents, discourse  
linguistics, document engineering and NLP are increasingly  
converging: a) applying corpus analysis methods to discourse calls  
for greater use of NLP techniques; b) new modes of access to  
documents’ contents place more emphasis on exploiting discourse  
structure. This convergence is manifest in a number of joint studies,  
and results in cross fertilisation between text and discourse  
linguistics on the one hand, document engineering and NLP on the other.

The Discourse and Document Symposium will bring together researchers  
interested in what can be termed the “document level” in discourse  
linguistics, in computational linguistics, and in document engineering.

The programme is organised in FOUR SESSIONS:
-	Corpus analyses and modelling of discourse organisation;
-	New document types and new modes of access to textual information;
-	Computational approaches to discourse and document processing;
- 	NLP systems Demonstrations.

with INVITED SPEAKERS
Michael Hoey, School of English, University of Liverpool, UK
Simone Teufel, University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, UK.

and a STATE OF THE ART ROUND TABLE
“Discourse and Document”: what prospects for a multidisciplinary  
approach? Research themes, applications, organisation of a research  
community.
