6th International Workshop on
Tree Adjoining Grammars and Related Frameworks

20-23 May 2002
Venice, Italy

goals and scope
The Tree Adjoining Grammar (TAG) formalism has been studied for some time, both for its mathematical properties and computational applications, as well as for its role in constructing grammatical theories and models of language processing. Over the years, these lines of inquiry have fed off of one another: empirical consequences have been derived from TAG's mathematical restrictiveness, and extensions to the TAG formalism have been motivated by the exigencies of grammatical analysis. One of the main goals of the TAG+6, then, is to bring together the full range of researchers interested in the TAG formalism, to continue the kinds of productive interaction that have been the hallmark of TAG research. We anticipate holding sessions devoted to syntactic theory, mathematical properties, computational and algorithmic studies of parsing and generation, psycholinguistic modeling, and applications to natural language processing.

It has been observed for some time that a range of grammatical frameworks, for example minimalist syntax, categorial grammar, dependency grammars, HPSG, and LFG, share certain properties with the TAG formalism. Such properties include lexicalization of syntactic structure, a conception of syntactic derivation rooted in generalized transformations, a simple notion of local grammatical dependency, and mildly context sensitive generative capacity. A second main goal of TAG+6, and the reason for the + in the workshop's name, is to better understand these connections between TAG and other related grammatical frameworks. In addition to submitted papers on such connections, TAG+6 will also include invited presentations by experts on some of these related grammatical frameworks.

We invite submissions on all aspects of TAG and related systems. Anonymous abstracts may be submitted for two sorts of presentations at the workshop: long talks, which will be 40 minutes in length, and short talks, 20 minutes in length. Regardless of type of submission, abstracts may not exceed two pages in length (not including data, figures and references). All abstracts must be submitted electronically to the following address: Please use 'Abstract' as the Subject header and include, below the abstract, the following information, which should constitute the body of the message: 1. Name(s) of author(s) 2. Affiliation(s) 3. E-mail address(es) 4. Postal address(es) 5. Title of talk 6. Preference for long or short presentation The anonymous abstract may then be included either in the body of the message in ASCII format, or else as a PDF attachment. Abstract Submission Deadline: February 15, 2002 Notification Of Acceptance: March 1, 2002 PROCEEDINGS Proceedings including an extended (4 page) version of all accepted abstracts will be distributed at the workshop.
