consultation with the EACL Board. Selected proposers will be informed

August 1999.

- Location (accessibility, conference venue, hotels, student dorms)
- Local CL Community
- Proposed Date
- Meeting Space (space for plenary sessions, tutorials, workshops, 
 posters, exhibits, demos and small meetings)
- A/V equipment
- Food/Entertainment/Banquet/Receptions
- Local Arrangements (chairs, committee, volunteer labor, registration

criteria (unordered):
