The ITC-IRST (Institute for Scientific and Technological Research) in
Trento, in the North of Italy, will host the Sixth International
Workshop on Parsing Technologies (IWPT'99) from 20 to 22 December,

Prague & Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic) 1995, and Boston/Cambridge
(Mass.) 1997.

A 'Call for Papers' for IWPT'99 will appear in the Spring of 1999.
