Subject: Correction to HPSG-2002 1st CFP

The HPSG-2002 Call for Papers sent out last week erroneously gave the 
dates for abstract submission deadline and notification of 
acceptance, respectively, as 15 Feb. and 1 April 2001. The correct 
year for both is 2002, of course. The corrected CFP appears below.
