(partly sponsored by the Office of Naval Research) and workshops
(partly sponsored by the cognitive science program at Indiana
University through the NSF) precedes the conference, and special
interest group meetings will be held. For more information, send email

This year's Cognitive Science conference will explore the possibility
of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) in Cognitive Science. SIGs are an
important component of many scientific societies, providing a
mechanism for networking and collaboration of researchers interested
in a particular area. Two SIGs have already been proposed (on
Educational Dialog, and Human Centered Design of Computing
Environments) but others are welcome. The meetings at the conference
will be informal, and there is no fee or early signup required. If
you would like more information contact: Brian Fisher at

********* Tenth International Conference on Turkish Linguistics ********

 First Circular: 15 July 1999

The Tenth International Conference on Turkish Linguistics will be held
between 16-18 August 2000 at Bopazigi \niversitesi, Istanbul. The
official language of the conference will be English, but submissions
in Turkish are also welcome.

The organisers will host three types of presentation: individual papers, 
workshops, poster sessions. 

1. Individual papers
Time allotted to each speaker will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for 

2. Workshops
Workshops are intended to create a platform where specific topics are 
discussed in depth. Workshop organisers are therefore asked to bring 
together work dealing with related aspects of a topic rather than aim at 
general aspects of broader issues. Each workshop will last between 1.5-2 
hours. The organiser of a workshop is expected to invite 3-4 researchers 
working on a specific topic, as well as designate a moderator. The 
organiser should submit a general abstract of the workshop together with 
the abstracts of the individual presentations. An organiser may choose 
to act as a moderator, or to present a paper. A workshop will be 
evaluated on the basis of whether it constitutes a cohesive session. 
Each submission will also be evaluated separately.

3. Poster sessions
These are intended to provide information about work in progress, and/or 
research results; poster sessions are also suitable to give 
demonstrations such as computer programs, etc. 

Selection of papers
The selection of individual papers, workshops, and poster sessions will 
be made by a review committee on the basis of anonymous evaluation of the 

Submission of abstracts 
The deadline for the receipt of abstracts (including workshop proposals) 
is Tuesday, 1 February 2000. The maximum number of abstracts that may be 
submitted by any individual is one single-authored and one jointly 
authored. This limit applies for all abstracts. 
Abstracts should not exceed one page including examples and bibliography. 
The preferred format is single line space, 12 points Times New Roman. For 
each abstract, please submit one named copy and five unnamed copies, and 
ensure that nothing in the text of your abstract reveals your identity.
