FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF THE CONFERENCE

The CUNY Conference operates on a shoe-string. We have 
always kept registration fees as low as possible, especially
for students. The way we make ends meet (barely!) is by 
contributions from CUNY and other institutions. We are 
immensely grateful for this financial support, and encourage
you to encourage your administration to make a donation to 
this good cause. We can provide wording you could use in a 
request letter. Any amount is welcome! In the past, 
contributions have ranged from $300 to $5000.

So please -- approach your dean, your provost, or the 
financial officer of your company, and explain what a 
valuable forum the CUNY Conference is for the exchange of 
research ideas.

 ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS

The 15th Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing
solicits abstracts for papers and posters presenting 
theoretical, experimental or computational research on any 
aspect of human sentence processing. Abstracts will be 
reviewed anonymously, and will be considered for both the 
general conference sessions and the special sessions on 
"Processing at the Interfaces".

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, December 3, 2001

This deadline applies to all submissions, whether for paper 
or poster presentation. We envisage making notifications 
concerning acceptance/rejection by December 31, 2001.

WHAT TO SUBMIT IN YOUR ABSTRACT

The text of the abstract should be no longer than 400 words.
You may also include examples, references and data summaries
(but please, no data charts or diagrams). This additional 
material taken together should not exceed 15 lines of text.

At the top of the abstract, please include the names and 
affiliations of all authors; also include an email address 
of the author who will handle correspondence. Please 
indicate whether you wish your abstract to be considered for
PAPER ONLY, POSTER ONLY, or PAPER OR POSTER. The last 
category means that you would be willing to present your 
work as a poster should the abstract not be accepted for the
spoken sessions. Please leave several blank lines between 
this information and the abstract proper (title and text), 
to facilitate anonymous review.

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT

We will accept e-mail submissions only, addressed to the 
conference's correspondence address: <sentprocgc.cuny.edu>
