Language (natural & formal), vision and music seem to share at least the following attributes: a hierarchical organisation of constituents, recursivity, metaphor, the possibility of self-reference, ambiguity, and systematicity. Can we propose the existence of a general symbol system with instantiations in these three modes or is the only commonality to be found at the level of such entities as cerebral columnar automata? Also, we invite papers which examine cross-cultural experience of these modalities. What can Engineering of software platforms for integrated Intelligent MultiModal & MultiMedia processing of language/vision/music/etc. tell us? TOPICS INCLUDE: o combinations: language and music; language and vision; music and vision. o What can Engineering of software platforms (e.g. AAU CHAMELEON; cf. http://www.cpk.auc.dk/imm) for integrated Intelligent MultiMedia processing of language/vision/etc. tell us? o Metaphor: For example: the use of terms like "interval" and "range" in music. o Rhythm: How is Rhythm important for language, vision and music? o Acoustics: What role does it play in the three modalities? o The roles of embodiment and culture in the formation of symbolic apparatus; For example: the use of gesture in face-to-face communication. o Emotions: what role do they play in the three modalities? o Synesthesia o What the visual, musical and linguistic arts can tell us. o What is the developmental relationship between prosody and music? What is the cognitive evidence for the dependence of music on language? o Can we speak meaningfully about a semantics of music? o Architectures for integration of language, vision and music; what aspects are conscious and what automatic? What aspects are common and what are specific to each? o What is the role of modelling creativity? Are the creative processes similar or in what way are they different? SPECIAL SESSION ON CREATIVITY: In AI we have failed to get much handle on creativity. Conn Mulvihill will Chair a special session on creativity looking at writing, poetry, painting, and music composition. Irish Nobel Prize Laureate Seamus Heaney is composing a translation of Beowulf at present with special attention to the sound - reminiscent of movement in a longship type craft and there are those that claim that music is central to any hope of understanding Joyce. We think also of the likes of Kandinsky here. Is Joyce prose or music? Is Kandinsky art or music? What is Picasso? What are the links between language, vision and music? Is creativity the same for each? and by the way, What is creativity? It is intended to involve Writers-in-Residence at NUI, Galway Pat McCabe ("The Butcher Boy") & Paula Meehan (Poet). o Are recent trends towards integrating ideas in the Arts/Humanities and Sciences/Engineering important here? (cf. http://www.futurehum.uib.no/ & http://tn-speech.essex.ac.uk/tn-speech/ & http://www.cpk.auc.dk/imm) o Why are there many arts and not just one? CSNLP: The International Workshop on the Cognitive Science of Natural Language Processing (CSNLP) has been run in IRELAND since 1992. The CSNLP-8 workshop will continue the tradition of emphasising presentations of Ireland's and International original research in all areas of the Cognitive Science of NLP including Computer Science, Psychology, Linguistics, Philosophy, Neuroscience and related disciplines on the obvious problems of speech, NLP, and vision processing, robotics, learning, reasoning, knowledge representation and mobile/remote computing. Papers addressing this year's theme are particularly welcome.

Born in 1950, he studied at Harvard, US and the University of California, US where he earned a Ph.D. in the History of Consciousness for an exploration of William Blake. His mentor was the anthropologist and philosopher Gregory Bateson. He has taught and lectured widely in the United States and abroad on creativity and the spiritual underpinnings of art. Since 1976 he has given solo improvisation concerts on violin, viola, and electric violin, and has presented workshops at many conservatories and universities. He has performed internationally, and has had numerous appearances on radio, television, and at music and theater festivals. He has collaborated with other artists in media including music, dance, theater, and film, and has developed programs melding art, music, literature, and computer technology. He has published articles in a variety of fields since 1966, and is the author of ``Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art'' (Putnam, 1990). In recent years he has created computer software including The World Music Menu and Visual Music Tone Painter. He is currently working on a new book on creativity called Genius & Magic. He lives with his wife and two sons in Los Angeles, US. see: http://www.freeplay.com LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL G/ERARD SABAH graduated from the `Ecole Polytechnique' in 1971 and entered the CNRS in the same year. Besides his engineering degree from the Polytechnique, further degrees include a 'Diplome d'etudes Approfondies' (DEA) in 1972, then a 'Doctorat de 3eme cycle' (1975) (subject: automatic learning of pattern recognition operators) and a 'Doctorat d'etat es Sciences' (1978) on Natural Language Understanding by Computers. He is currently a Research Director at CNRS, and the head of the Language and Cognition group at LIMSI (Laboratoire d'Informatique et de Mecanique pour les Sciences de l'Ingenieur: Computer Sciences and Mechanics for Engineering Laboratory). He is the author of the two volumes 'L'intelligence artificielle et le langage' (vol. 1: Knowledge Representation; vol. 2: Understanding Processes), published by Hermes, Paris. His present interest is the study of the cognitive processes in natural language understanding, acquisition and generation. The main activities of his group (currently about 25 people) concern multi-agent architectures for text analysis and understanding, flexible parsing, dialogue processing, reasoning mechanisms, generation and learning. Until recently he was responsible of the natural language pole of the Man-Machine Communication PRC (National Programme of Co-ordinated Research) and responsible for the Cognitive Science Network in southern Paris, a network of universities and research laboratories working in Cognitive Science. He has also been the president of the French Association for Cognitive Research. He is presently member of the AFIA (French Association for Artificial Intelligence - member of the ECCAI federation) bureau and editor in chief of its journal. see: http://www.limsi.fr/Individu/gs/ LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL IPKE WACHSMUTH has held the chair of Knowledge-Based Systems/ Artificial Intelligence in the Faculty of Technology at the University of Bielefeld, Germany for the past ten years. He holds a Master's degree in mathematics (Dipl.-Math.), obtained in 1975 from the Technical University of Hanover, Germany, where he also obtained his Ph.D. (Dr.rer.nat) in 1980 for research in cellular automata synchronization, and a Habilitation degree in Computer Science which he obtained from the University of Osnabrueck, Germany, in 1989, for research on knowledge base organization. Before coming to Bielefeld, he held faculty and project leader positions in the Department of Mathematics/Computer Science and the Linguistics Department at the University of Osnabrueck, Germany. He was also assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Northern Illinois University in 1981-83 and research fellow in the LILOG group at IBM Germany in 1986- 88. Prof. Wachsmuth has a strong multidisciplinary commitment and has published in the fields of cellular automata, cognitive learning research, intelligent tutoring systems, natural language understanding, AI technology assessment, expert and agent systems, large knowledge bases, virtual reality, and gestural interaction. His current research activities cover virtual environments, dynamic knowledge representations and multi-agent techniques in the context of multimodal human-machine communication.

The land may still be poor but no-one these days would equate Connaught with hell. As anyone who ever watched the sun go down on the famously beautiful Galway bay will tell you, it's definitely more on the heavenly end of the spectrum. A friendly sprawling city, Galway has all the amenities of a much larger place yet maintains its laid-back vibe. As a University town, it is incredibly youthful, culturally vibrant and undeniably cosmopolitan. You can lose your shirt at the races or your inhibitions at the oyster festival. A light mist will enhance your complexion as you cycle over the salmon weir, along by the cathedral. Bring your umbrella and prepare to have lots of fun....""
