This year, the Japanese/Korean Conference will celebrate its 10th
anniversary during the weekend following Hangul (Korean Alphabet) Day
(Oct. 9). With affection and appreciation, we would like to dedicate the
conference and the proceedings to the memory of Jim McCawley (1938-
1999), who was one of the founding fathers of Japanese and Korean
Linguistics in this country. To mark this very special occasion, we have
invited Jim's former students, long-time friends, and colleagues.

This conference aims to provide a forum for presenting research in
Japanese and Korean linguistics, thereby facilitating efforts to deepen our
understanding of these two languages which have striking typological
similarities. We especially encourage presentations which investigate both
languages. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, syntax,
semantics, pragmatics, discourse, typology, grammaticalization, historical
linguistics, phonology, morphology, language acquisition,
psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics.

All the presentations, including those by invited speakers, will be 20
minutes long, and will be followed by a 10 minute question-answer period.

Submitted items should include:

By snail mail:
1) One copy of a ONE-PAGE abstract (500 words maximum). First line
should indicate the category, Formal or Functional, followed by the sub-

 For example, Formal/Syntax, Formal/Morphology, or
 Functional/Discousre, Functional/Grammaticalization,
 Functinal/Cognitive linguistics etc.).

Second line should be the paper title: Omit your name and affiliation from
the abstract. A second page may be used ONLY for examples and citing

2) A 3" by 5" card with the title of the paper, the name(s) and affiliation(s)
of the author(s), and the address, phone number and e-mail address of the
primary author.

If your address, phone number and e-mail address will be different during
the summer, be sure to include that information.

3) EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: By e-mail: In addition to (1) and (2)
above, submit via e-mail the same abstract and the author information
described in (1) and (2) to protect the loss of information as well as to
facilitate the abstract selection process.

 The 10th J/K e-mail address is : <10th >.

Please use the subject header "JK10, (your last name and first name
initial), (category, i.e., "Formal/Syntax" or
"Functional/Grammaticalization" etc.)". See the next example.

 JK10, Nagashima, S., Formal/Phonology

Include all the author information in the body of the e-mail.

Abstracts should be sent as an attachment, and should be also pasted in the
body of the e-mail. Please include any non-standard fonts that you use. If
you send your abstract in any format other than plain text, please allow for
time to solve any technical difficulties that may arise. Acceptable formats

 1. Plain text
 2. Microsoft Word (Important! Please send two versions: TEXT ONLY
 and RTF files.)

4) Note that only one abstract from each individual can be considered for
acceptance. One individual abstract and one jointly authored abstract may
also be submitted.

5) All the necessary information about the conference will appear on our
JK Conference Website shortly

In the year 2000, the Advances in Modal Logic workshop and the

description logics, dynamic logic, epistemic logic, modal logics
of agency and space, modal logic and game theory, modal logic and
grammar formalisms, modal realism and anti-realism, modal and
temporal logic programming and theorem proving, model theory and
proof theory of modal and temporal logic, representation of time
in natural language semantics, non-monotonic modal logics,
provability logic, temporal databases. Papers on related
subjects will also be considered.

During the workshop there will be a special session on
description logics and applications of modal logic in Knowledge
