Preliminary Announcement

First AMAST Workshop on Language Processing

Place : University of Twente, Enschede
the Netherlands

Time : 6-8 December 1995

Organizers : A. Nijholt (Enschede)
M. Nivat (Paris)
T. Rus (Iowa City)

Theme : Algebraic Methods in Language Processing

This workshop is organized in the framework provided by
the Algebraic Methodology and Software Technology (AMAST)
movement. In this framework four large international
conferences have been held and, until now, three workshops
(one on Topology and Completion in Semantics, the other two
on Real-Time Systems).
The First AMAST Workshop on Language Processing will be
organized in Enschede. This workshop will focus on algebraic
methods in formal languages, programming languages and
natural languages.

Aims of the Workshop
The aim of this workshop is to bring together those
researchers on formal language theory, programming
language theory and natural language description
theory, that have a common interest in the use of
algebraic methods to describe syntactic, semantic and
pragmatic properties of language. The workshop does
not concentrate on natural language only. There is
interesting use of algebraic methods in programming
language processing (compiler construction and
development of programming language environments)
and (obviously) in formal language theory. Moreover,
it is becoming clear that some of the methods
developed in these fields can play a role in natural
language description and processing.
