Background

The SynSem research group at the Oslo Center for Advanced Study (CAS) holds a working meeting with parts of the (enhanced) Universal Dependencies (UD) initiative, to discuss meaning construction on top of UD syntax. The meeting will be held from Monday, March 19, to Wednesday, March 21, 2018, at Hotel Gabelshus in Oslo. We expect to start the programme on Monday morning after breakfast, i.e. encourage everyone to travel to Oslo on Sunday already; on Wednesday, we will wrap up the meeting at lunch time (say 13:00), so that for most people it should be possible to still catch flights back home that day.

Logistics

Participants are expected to make their own travel arrangements to Oslo and submit transportation receipts for reimbursement upon completion of the meeting. SynSem has earmarked up to EUR 1000 per participant traveling from outside Europe and up to EUR 400 per participant from within Europe; in case you find it impossible to make travel arrangements to Oslo within these limits, please make contact with Dag and Stephan as soon as possible. Accomodation and meals while in Oslo will be covered by SynSem directly.

Please submit your receipts for travel (airfare and airport transfers) for reimbursement on-line no later than mid-April. After Sunday, April 15, 2018, the Norwegian tax payer can no longer guarantee reimbursements.

Programme

We expect to prepare the programme collectively, with presentation (or maybe demonstration) and discussion slots as obvious building blocks. All participants are invited to (though not required) to present on their ongoing work, possibly in collaborating teams. In a first instance, we welcome suggestions for programme elements (of any type, not limited to the above examples), which we will collect incrementally.
