Subject: Pacific Asia Conf on Lang/Information/Computation (PACLIC 16)


The Korean Society of Language and Information is pleased to announce that
the 16th Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation
(PACLIC 16) will be held at Jeju Island, Korea, on January 31- February 2,
2002. The conference is an annual meeting of scholars in theoretical and
computational linguistics from the Pacific Asia region. The aim of the
conference is to provide a forum for recent work in various areas of
linguistics and is to bring together researchers from various active areas
in theoretical and computational linguistics. (The conference site Jeju,
sometimes romanized as Cheju, is an island located south of the Korean
peninsula and enjoys a semi-tropical climate and a culture of its own. It is
known as the Isle of Gods and often called Hawaii of Korea. Right after the
conference, the Island will also host World Cup 2002.)

Extended abstracts are invited on unpublished research on all aspects of
both theoretical and computational linguistics, including, but not limited
to: morphology, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse
analysis, typology, corpus linguistics, formal grammar theory, natural
language processing, natural language systems and related computer

Abstracts should at least be 6 A4 pages long (about 1,500 words), using 11pt
fonts and double line spacing throughout, with the title of the paper, the
name(s) of the author(s), affiliation(s), postal address, and e-mail address
for correspondence on a separate page. Accepted papers will be published in
the Conference Proceedings. A camera-ready full paper is expected to be
about 10 A4 pages with single line spacing. We envisage a meeting with two
invited keynote addresses.

The deadline for abstract submission is 30 September 2001. Electronic
submissions are preferred. Acceptable file formats are PostScript (.ps),
Portable Document Format (.pdf), MS Word (.doc), and plain text. Please
