SIXTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE on SYMBOLIC and LOGICAL COMPUTING
DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY
MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA
OCTOBER 15 - 16, 1992
ICEBOL6, the Sixth International Conference on Symbolic and Logical
Computing, is designed for teachers, scholars, and programmers who want
to meet to exchange ideas about computer programming for non-numeric
applications -- especially those in the humanities. In addition to a
focus on SNOBOL4, SPITBOL, and Icon, ICEBOL6 invites presentations on
textual and logical processing in a variety of programming languages such
as Prolog and C. Topics of discussion will include artificial
intelligence and expert systems, and a wide range of analyses of texts in
English and other natural languages. Parallel tracks of concurrent
sessions are planned.
ICEBOL's coffee breaks, social hours, lunches, and banquet will
provide a series of opportunities for participants to meet and informally
CALL FOR PAPERS
Abstracts (250-750 words) of proposed papers to be read at ICEBOL6
are invited in any area of non-numeric programming. Planned sessions
include the following:
analysis of texts (including bibliography, concordance, and index
artificial intelligence and expert systems
computer languages and compilers designed for non-numeric processing
electronic texts and encoding

preparation of texts for publishing
Papers must be in English and may not exceed twenty minutes reading
time. Abstracts should be received by March 1, 1992. Notification of

Papers will be published in ICEBOL6 Proceedings.
Presentations at previous ICEBOL conferences were made by Paul
Abrahams (ACM President), Gene Amdahl (Andor Systems), Robert Dewar (New
York University), Mark Emmer (Catspaw, Inc.), James Gimpel (Lehigh),
Ralph Griswold (Arizona), Susan Hockey (Oxford), Nancy Ide (Vassar) and
many others. Copies of the ICEBOL5 Proceedings are available.
