The 7th International Workshop on
Natural Language Understanding and Logic Programming

An affiliated workshop with ICLP, as part of FLoC'02

Copenhagen, Denmark, 27-28 July, 2002

Submission deadline extension: the deadline for submission is March 10, 2002!


The International Workshop on Natural Language Understanding and Logic Programming was first organized in Rennes, France, in 1984. Since then similar workshops took place in Vancouver, Canada (1987), Dalgharten, Sweden (1991), Nara, Japan (1993), Lisbon, Portugal (1995) and most recently, the 6th NLULP took place in Las Cruces, New Mexico in December 1999, as part of the International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP'99). This year, NLULP is affiliated again with ICLP, The International Conference on Logic Programming, which is held as part of FLoC'02, The 2002 Federated Logic Conference, the major computational logic event of the year.

Topics of interest include all aspects of the intersection of Natural Language Understanding with Logic Programming and Constraint (Logic) Programming, both theoretical and practical, in all levels of linguistic investigation. Special emphasis will be given to works addressing the logical, mathematical and computational relationships between linguistic formalisms and logic programming. Relevant issues include, but are not limited to, investigations of the logical theory underlying linguistic formalisms; alternative approaches to the semantics of such formalisms; applications of constraint logic programming to ``constraint-based'' linguistic formalisms; issues governing grammar engineering, scalability, modularization, information encapsulation, etc; applications of inductive logic programming methods to NLP; higher-order logic programming; applications of functional programming to NLP; etc. However, all works dealing with issues of natural language and logic programming are welcome.


Papers should be written in English and describe original, unpublished work. They should emphasize completed rather than proposed work. The state of completion of reported results should be clearly indicated. Papers must be anonymous and refrain from self-reference. Accepted papers cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the title page.

Submissions should be no longer than 15 pages (A4 or Letter format, single column, 11pt, at least 2.5cm / 1 inch margins), including title (but no author names), abstract, keywords and references. All contributions are to be made electronically, preferably as PDF attachments. Please send your anonymous submission to the organizer, If electronic submission is impossible, please contact the organizer. The deadline for submission is Sunday, 10 March, 2002.

The anonymous submission should be accompanied by an e-mail listing the following details:

All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. The accepted papers will be made available both electronically and on paper as the Workshop's Proceedings. Depending on the quality of the submissions, we intend to publish selected papers in a special issue of the Journal of Language and Computation.
