Fifth International Conference on Meaning-Text Theory (MTT '11)
8-9 September 2011, Barcelona, Spain

The Meaning-Text Theory is a holistic linguistic theory characterized in particular by the central position of the lexicon, the primacy of semantics, the importance of the communicative structure (= information structure), and the reliance on dependencies on all levels. MTT has been extensively developed over the last four decades with respect to its coverage of linguistic phenomena and application in a variety of research fields - in particular natural language processing.

After MTT '03 in Paris, MTT '05 in Moscow, MTT '07 in Klagenfurt, and MTT '09 in Montreal, this conference is the fifth in a series that aims at bringing together researchers working on MTT and its implementation in the framework of different natural language processing applications. The conference will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Dependency Linguistics to take place immediately before MTT '11. Unlike the previous MTT Conferences, MTT '11 will be organized in terms of thematic tracks. This new format shall help center the conference and stimulate in-depth contributions and discussions at the conference. Submissions are invited on one of the following themes approached from the perspective of MTT or any related framework:

MTT 2011 will be organized in 6 Tracks:

1. Fundamentals (semantics, syntax, morphology, phonology and their interaction), Chair: Sylvain Kahane
2. Dictionaries and Lexical Semantics, Chairs: Valentina Apresjan and Tilmann Reuther
3. Collocations, Chairs: Margarita Alonso Ramos and Leo Wanner
4. Semantic Derivation and Morphology, Chair: Maarten Janssen
5. Computational Applications, Chair: Igor Boguslavsky
6. Terminology, Chairs: Amparo Alcina and Marie-Claude L'Homme


Submissions must be in English. They may not exceed 10 pages in length (including all figures, data, notes, and bibliography) using a 12 point font, printed in one column) and should indicate to which track they are submitted. Style files for LaTeX and Word will be published later in the website of the conference. All submissions will be electronic in pdf format via EasyChair.
