 Language
Processing and Logic Programming  invites the
submission of papers for NLULP5, in Lisbon, Portugal.


TOPICS OF INTEREST:

Papers are invited  on substantial, original, and unpublished research
on  all   aspects of  Logic Programming applications to computational
 linguistics,
including,   but not limited to, the followings.

- syntax                                - parsing
- semantics                             - generation
- phonetics                             - language understanding
- phonology                             - speech analysis/synthesis
- morphology                            - computational lexicons
- discourse                             - electronic dictionaries
- pragmatics                            - terminology
- quantitative/qualitative linguistics  - text database and retrieval
- mathematical linguistics              - documentation
- contrastive linguistics               - machine translation
- cognitive linguistics                 - machine aids for translation
- large text corpora                    - natural language interface
- text processing                       - dialogue systems
- hardware/software for NLP             - multimedia systems

It will be nice to have in Lisbon Practical Applications of PROLOG in the area
 of NLU, for
demonstrating Prolog's attractiveness for this area.
