IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO REGISTER FOR THIS CONFERENCE.
................................................................ 

This conference aims to bring together researchers working in
different contexts with bilingual spoken data (code-switching and
other forms of language contact) in any languages. The focus will be
on issues of transcription, encoding, analysis (especially automated
analysis), and exchange of data among researchers. The conference
coincides with the publication (in June 2000) of the LIDES Coding
Manual: A Document for Preparing and Analysing Language Interaction
Data by the The LIPPS Group (Language Interaction in Plurilingual and
Plurilectal Speakers).

There will be a conference fee of 20 pounds which will include lunch.
Limited on-campus accommodation is available. Further information,
about both the LIPPS project and the conference, is posted on the
Conference web site at
http://www.ling.lancs.ac.uk/staff/mark/LIPPS/Announce.htm where you
can also find a registration form. Abstracts of papers will also be
posted there shortly.
