                  6th International Workshop on
          Tree Adjoining Grammars and Related Frameworks

                         20-23 May 2002
                          Venice, Italy

            SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 30, 2002



    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 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: January 30, 2002
        Notification Of Acceptance: March 1, 2002

    Proceedings including an extended (4 page) version of all
    accepted abstracts will be distributed at the workshop.
