 June 29-July 2, 2000
 Stanford University

The Seventeenth International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-2000)
will be held at Stanford University from June 29 to July 2, 2000. The
conference will bring together researchers to exchange ideas and report
recent progress in the computational study of learning.

ICML-2000 will include 150 presentations on learning in classification,
robotic control, planning, natural language, text processing, computer 
vision, user modeling, and other domains. Details about ICML-2000, 
including the conference schedule, are available at

The meeting will feature invited talks by Jerome Friedman, Paul Utgoff, 
and Haym Hirsh, as well as six workshops on Sunday, July 2. Registration 
for the conference is $250. We expect hotel space in Silicon Valley to
be scarce, so please make your reservations soon.

ICML-2000 will be collocated with COLT-2000 and UAI-2000. Registrants to
any of these meetings will be able to attend the technical sessions of
the others at no additional cost. The conference has received support
from DaimlerChrysler, ISLE, Motorola, IBM, CSLI, Hewlett-Packard, and
NASA Ames. If you have questions about ICML-2000, send electronic mail

Message 2: Journal of Japanese Linguistics

Date: Thu, 15 Jun 2000 15:39:24 -0700
From: East Asian Studies Center <>
Subject: Journal of Japanese Linguistics


Call for Submission

The East Asian Studies Center at Indiana University is happy to announce the
publication of Journal of Japanese Linguistics under a new editorial board
(Natsuko Tsujimura, Editor-in-chief). JJL seeks to sustain and enhance an
intellectually stimulating discussion forum. The journal publishes original
research that deals with issues in Japanese linguistics from both
theoretical and descriptive perspectives and from a wide range of areas
including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, language
variation, acquisition, and historical linguistics as well as discussion of
pedagogical implications. It is intended to provide linguists an opportunity
for discussions of research and exchange of ideas and solutions. JJL also
promotes interaction and collaboration between theoretical and descriptive
camps so that together they may lead to a better understanding and treatment
of Japanese linguistic phenomena. Under these objectives we would like to
invite submissions to JJL that fall under the following categories:

(i) empirically oriented, descriptive work that includes original
observations of linguistic phenomena
(ii) theoretical application to empirical work
(iii) discussion of linguistic issues problematic to language pedagogy
and/or pedagogical implications of (i) or (ii)

JJL also plans to publish abstracts of recent dissertations. Recent Ph.Ds
who have completed dissertations since 1997 are encouraged to send abstracts
of their thesis, following the guidelines stated below.


Submission Guidelines

The editor assumes that a manuscript submitted for publication has not
previously been published, and that it is not currently being considered for
publication elsewhere. At the time of submission, the contributor should
indicate if a modified version of the manuscript is being considered for
publication elsewhere. Copyright will be held by the Journal of Japanese

Manuscripts intended for publication should conform to the Linguistic
Society of America Style Sheet, except for certain conventions specified
below. The author's name should not appear under the title on page 1, and
any wordings elsewhere that would identify the author should be avoided.
Please attach a separate sheet of paper that specifies the title and the
author's name, affiliation, and mailing address. A 200-word abstract of the
article should be provided on this sheet. Areas of study to which the
article may be of particular interest (such as formal syntax or
conversational analysis) should be listed at the end of the abstract.

Manuscripts should be written in English and typed on one side of
letter-size or A4 paper. Endnotes, not footnotes, should follow on a new
page, labeled "Notes." References should begin on a new page following the
endnotes. All text, including notes, must be double-spaced. Example
sentences should be accompanied by a word-for-word gloss and a free
translation. Any abbreviation should be explained on first use in a note.

Isolated words or phrases in Japanese that appear in the text should be
italicized or underlined. Glosses of individual Japanese words should follow
that word in quotations, e.g., sensei "teacher." For all Japanese citations,
please use one of the commonly used Romanization systems.

The editor reserves the right to return manuscripts for retyping if the
proper conventions are not followed.

4 copies of manuscript should be sent to:
 Natsuko Tsujimura
 Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures
 Goodbody Hall 248
 Indiana University
 Bloomington, IN 47405

Ph.D dissertation abstracts should include the following information:
