FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

The conference will take place from 30 August to 1 September 2001. 
The sole (or main) venue will be College House, Ilam Road, 
Christchurch (a hall of residence adjoining the campus of the 
University of Canterbury). The conference will begin at about 9.00 
am on 30 August and end about mid-afternoon on 1 September.

Papers are welcomed on any area of linguistics. We expect that most 
papers will occupy 45-minute time slots (i.e. about 30 minutes plus 
15 minutes for discussion), but we will be able to accommodate 
shorter papers (30-minutes time slots), and perhaps also longer ones, 
as well. Please indicate any special requirements below. You are 
invited to indicate a provisional title now, and supply an abstract 
before 7 June 2001.

The registration fee (which includes morning and afternoon tea and 
lunch, and welcoming drinks and nibbles) is:
 Normal Earlybird discount (by 1 May 2001)

Nonstudents $100.00 $90.00

Accommodation per night (bed and continental breakfast) at College

Dinner is not included in the registration fee or accommodation 
charge. There will be a conference dinner on one of the nights, of 
which details and cost will be announced later. On other nights, 
conference-goers will have the choice of dining at one of several 
venues on campus, or near the campus in Ilam, or elsewhere in 
Christchurch.
