 COLING 2000 *** REMINDER ***

 DEADLINE for TUTORIAL proposals: 15 February 2000

The Coling 2000 Tutorial Programmme Committee invites proposals for the
Tutorial Program for Coling 2000, which is to be held in Nancy,
Saarbruecken and Luxembourg, July 29-August 6th 2000. The tutorials will
be held in Nancy, July 29th-30th, immediately preceding the main
conference. Bus facilities will be provided to go to Saarbruecken on
Sunday 30th July.

Each tutorial should be well-focused so that its core content can be
covered in a three hours tutorial slot (including a 30 minute break). 
6-hour tutorial slots may be possible as well. 

It is hoped that it will be possible to accomodate a large number of
high quality proposals for tutorials. However, proposers are encouraged
to submit as early as possible to ensure that appropriate arrangements
can be made to accomodate all accepted tutorial sessions. Electronic
submission would be greatly appreciated.

 The International Conference on Computational Linguistics
 COLING 2000 will take place in three countries in the heart of Europe.
 - Nancy (Tutorials 29/30 July, 2000)
 - Saarbr´┐Żcken (Conference 31 July - 4 August, 2000)
 - Luxembourg (Workshops 5/6 August 2000)
 Transportation between the three almost neighbouring sites will be
 COLING 2000 will be the ideal place to
 - present your latest results at the conference and workshops
 - demo your systems to colleagues
 - study new trends and techniques in the tutorials
 - exhibit your language technologies for the 21st century
 - hire needed specialists before somebody else does

The journal of Cognitive Systems Research covers all topics in the
study of cognitive processes, in both natural and artificial systems: 

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning 
Problem-Solving and Cognitive Skills 
Language and Communication 
Integrative Studies of Cognitive Systems

The journal emphasizes the integration/synthesis of ideas, concepts,
constructs, theories, and techniques from multiple paradigms,
perspectives, and disciplines, in the analysis, understanding and
design of cognitive and intelligent systems. Contributions describing
results obtained within the traditional disciplines are also sought if
such work has broader implications and relevance.

The journal seeks to foster and promote the discussion of novel
approaches in studying cognitive and intelligent systems. It also
encourages cross-fertilization of disciplines, by publishing
high-quality contributions in all of the areas of study, including
artificial intelligence, linguistics, psychology, psychiatry,
philosophy, system and control theory, anthropology, sociology,
biological sciences, and neuroscience.

The scope of the journal includes the study of a variety of different
cognitive systems, at different levels, ranging from social/cultural
cognition, to individual cognitive agents, to components of such
systems. Of particular interest are theoretical, experimental, and
integrative studies and computational modeling of cognitive systems,
at different levels of detail, and from different perspectives.

Send submissions in POSTSCRIPT format by electronic mail to one
of the three co-Editors-in-Chief.
(Note The journal transends traditional disciplinary boundaries, 
and considers contributions from all relevant disciplines and approaches. 
The key is the quality of the work and the accessibility and relevance
to readers in different disciplines.)

The first two issues of this new journal, published by ElsevierScience, 
have appeared on the Web . 
In addition to this electronic form, the issues will also be printed
and bound as archival volume. Published papers will be considered
automatically for inclusion in specially edited books on Cognitive
Systems Research.
