                      The 7th International Workshop on
             Natural Language Understanding and Logic Programming
             An affiliated workshop with ICLP, as part of FLoC'02

                      Copenhagen, Denmark, 28 July, 2002



    The International Workshop on Natural Language Understanding and Logic
    Programming was first organized in Rennes, France, in 1984. Since then
    similar workshops took place in Vancouver, Canada (1987), Dalgharten,
    Sweden (1991), Nara, Japan (1993), Lisbon, Portugal (1995) and most
    recently, the 6th NLULP took place in Las Cruces, New Mexico in
    December 1999, as part of the International Conference on Logic
    Programming (ICLP'99). This year, NLULP is affiliated again with ICLP,
    The International Conference on Logic Programming, which is held as
    part of FLoC'02, The 2002 Federated Logic Conference, the major
    computational logic event of the year.

    The Workshop aims to cover all aspects of the intersection of Natural
    Language Understanding with Logic Programming and Constraint (Logic)
    Programming, both theoretical and practical, in all levels of
    linguistic investigation. Special emphasis was given to works
    addressing the logical, mathematical and computational relationships
    between linguistic formalisms and logic programming.

    Please refer to the main FLoC'02 web site for information on
    registration and accommodation. You do not have to register to any
    other FLoC'02 event in order to participate in NLULP'02; however,
    there is a registration fee supplement if you are not registered to
    any other FLoC'02 main conference. Some grants are available to
    provide travel support for participants in FLoC'02. Note that the
    deadline for early registration is June 15.


    We are grateful to The Association for Logic Programming for the
    financial support of the Workshop.
