*****************************************************************

 !!!SPECIAL SESSIONS!!!

NOTE THE EARLY DATE THIS YEAR, PLUS THE FACT THAT FASL PROPER RUNS 
ALL DAY SATURDAY AND AFTER LUNCH SUNDAY. This is because FASL9 is 
being held in conjunction with a special workshop/forum on the topic:

 Slavic Linguistics 2000:
 The Future of Slavic Linguistics in America
 (SLING2K)

SLING2K is funded by the U.S. Dept. of Education, and will take place 
all day on Friday, February 18, 2000. Participants in this event 
include the following scholars:

Ronelle Alexander, Edna Andrews, John Bailyn, Christina Bethin, David
Birnbaum, Catherine Chvany, Lenore Grenoble, Charles Gribble, Laura
Janda, Maria Polinsky, Adam Przepiorkowski, Irina Sekerina, and
Charles Townsend

The uncertain future of the field of Slavic linguistics has given rise
to a number of productive discussions in the pages of journals such as
the Journal of Slavic Linguistics and at the sessions of meetings such
as the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European
Languages. In the words of Olga Yokoyama, "the time has come to take a
hard look at the future of our field as an occupation". The SLING2K
workshop is designed to do just this. We are inviting a variety of
experts to submit position papers, which will be put on the web by 15
December 1999. These are meant to serve as springboards for
discussion, rebuttal, response, and debate. Position paper authors
will summarize what they regard as the state of the field with respect
to their particular subdiscipline(s). Papers should summarize past
achievements and sketch out new directions. Responses will be
entertained on a continuing basis, until the program is full. We hope
that a realistic assessment of the viability of Slavic linguistics in
the 21st century will emerge from the debate, and that the product of
the workshop will be of considerable use to current and future
graduate students in making informed decisions about the concentration
of their academic energies.

The workshop itself will take the form of an interactive forum, where
all participants have read the position papers, and will ideally
respond to one or more of them and participate in a vigorous
give-and-take discussion and general brainstorming session. The
workshop proceedings, including the full text of all position papers,
selected responses, and edited transcripts of the discussions will be
published by Slavica Publishers (the exact schedule and format of the
volume to be shaped by the nature of the actual workshop).

Web pages will be located at: http://www.indiana.edu/~slavconf/

	!!!POSTER SESSION ON SLAVIC SEMANTICS!!!

As a special one-time event intended to increase the participation of
semanticists in FASL meetings, there will be a special poster session
(up to 6 posters) on Slavic Semantics at FASL9, concurrent with the
regular Saturday poster session. Abstracts for the special session
will be separately refereed by a committee organized by Barbara
Partee. Papers from this session will not be published in the FASL9
proceedings, but can be submitted for review for a special semantics
issue of the Journal of Slavic Linguistics to be co-edited by Barbara
Partee and Wayles Browne. Please submit abstracts (same specifications
and number of copies as for normal FASL papers, and same deadlines,
notification dates, etc.) for the Special Poster Session on Slavic
Semantics to:

Slavic Semantics Poster Session
c/o Barbara H. Partee
Department of Linguistics
University of Massachusetts
Amherst, MA 01003-7130
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Note: You may submit the same abstract to both the regular FASL9
program and to the special poster session; in that case, you must
indicate on a separate piece of paper attached to your abstract which
venue would be your first choice if both are accepted.

There will also be an informal luncheon meeting on Sunday Feb. 20 to
continue the discussion begun at FASL 8 of ways to facilitate the
development of Slavic semantics; all welcome. To join an informal
e-mail interest group on this topic, contact
parteelinguist.umass.edu.

The Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics (GURT)
2000 will focus on the interrelationships between linguistics and other
professions. We invite proposals for papers and colloquia that examine
language use in or apply linguistics to the professions of education,
journalism, law, medicine, and technology. 

Individual papers will be 20 minutes long followed by 10 minutes of
discussion. To propose an individual paper, send four copies of a
one-page abstract. In the upper right-hand corner of all four copies
indicate the professional strand most closely related to the presentation
(education, journalism, law, medicine, technology, or 'other'). In the
upper left-hand corner of one copy, place the submitter's name, address,
phone, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation. The other three
copies should contain no identifying information. 

Organizers of colloquia may send proposals for either 2 or 4 hour blocks
of time. Colloquium organizers serve as the liaison between participants
in their colloquium and the GURT2000 organizers, and are responsible for
communication among the participants. To propose a colloquium, send four
copies of a single page statement from the organizer explaining the theme
of the colloquium, how the individual presentations relate to each other,
how much time is being requested, and how the time will be allocated. In
the upper right-hand corner of all four copies indicate the professional
strand most closely related to the colloquium (education, journalism, law,
medicine, technology, or 'other'). In the upper left-hand corner of one
copy, place the organizer's name, address, phone, e-mail address, and
institutional affiliation. The other three copies should contain no
identifying information. 
	
In addition to the organizer's umbrella abstract, four copies of one-page
abstracts should be sent for each individual presentation within the
colloquium. In the upper left-hand corner of one copy, place the
presenter's name, address, phone, e-mail address, and institutional
affiliation. The other three copies should contain no identifying
information. 
	
Abstracts for all presentations within one colloquium must be submitted
together. 


ALL PROPOSALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1999. Send
proposals to: GURT 2000, Department of Linguistics, Georgetown
University, Washington, D.C. 20057. E-mail inquiries should be directed
to: alatisjgusun.georgetown.edu.
