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 individual papers as well
as for 2-hour and 4-hour colloquia that examine language use in or apply
linguistics to the professions of education, journalism, law, medicine,
and technology. Researchers working in a profession not represented by
these strands are welcome to submit their papers within an "other"
category. Specifications for all proposal submissions follow.

 
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
