			 SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

			 PACLING-99
 Pacific Association for Computational LINGuistics
 University of Waterloo
 Waterloo, Ontario, Canada N2L 3G1

			 August 25-28, 1999

The 4th PACLING conference will be held at the University of Waterloo,
Waterloo, Canada, on August 25th to 28th, 1999. PACLING '99 is hosted by:

	o Canadian Society for Computational Studies of Intelligence
	 (CSCSI)/ Societe canadienne pour l'etude de l'intelligence par
	 ordinateur (SCEIO)
	o University of Waterloo, Canada
	o The Technical Group on Natural Language Understanding and
	 Communication of Institute of Electronics, Information, and
	 Communication Engineers of Japan
	o The Technical Group on Thought and Language of Institute of
	 Electronics, Information, and Communication Engineers of Japan

PACLING '99 will be a low-profile, high-quality, workshop-oriented
meeting whose aim is to promote friendly scientific relations among
Pacific Rim countries, with emphasis on interdisciplinary scientific
exchange demonstrating openness towards good research falling outside
current dominant ``schools of thought'', and on technological transfer
within the Pacific region. The conference represents a unique forum
for scientific and technological exchange, being smaller than ACL,
COLING, or Applied NLP, and also more regional with extensive
representation from the Pacific.


INVITED SPEAKERS

There are two invited speakers this year. Fred Popowich, from Simon
Fraser University, will speak to us about ``Running on MT: Aspects of
Real Time Machine Translation'', while Bob Carpenter, from Bell
Laboratories, will announce his topic soon. Further information will
be published on the PACLING homepage as soon as it becomes available.


SUBMISSION DETAILS

Authors should prepare extended abstracts, in English, not more than
3000 words including references. The title page must include: author's
name, postal address, e-mail address (if possible), telephone and
facsimile numbers; a brief 100-200 word summary; and some key words
for classifying the submission.

Papers that are being submitted to other conferences, whether verbatim
or in essence, must reflect this fact after key words. If a paper
appears at another conference, it must be withdrawn from PACLING
'99. Papers that violate these requirements are subject to rejection
without review.

Authors of a selection of representative papers which the Program
Committee identifies will be invited to revise their papers and submit
to a special issue of Computational Intelligence: An International
Journal based on PACLING '99.

Please send four copies of each submission to:
