OTHER ASPECTS OF INTEREST

Santiago de Cuba, located at some 900 kms from Havana, is Cuba's
second largest city. Its economic, cultural and social importance in
Cuban history is unquestionable. Santiago is also the capital of the
province with the same name. Surrounded by the green mountains of the
Sierra Maestra range and the Caribbean Sea, Santiago is unique in its
geography and beautiful landscape. Its surroundings make the city one
of the most important tourist attractions on the entire island. The
Organizing Committee, in coordination with the city's tourist agencies
will offer visiting delegates a host of options allowing participants
to enjoy the city's beauty and charm.

Message 2: Extended deadline - Third International Conference on the Mental Lexicon

Date: Thu, 18 Apr 2002 23:29:54 -0600
From: gary libben <gary.libbenualberta.ca>
Subject: Extended deadline - Third International Conference on the Mental Lexicon

 FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION -- MAY 1, 2002

The Third International Conference on the Mental Lexicon
Banff, Alberta, Canada
October 6-8, 2002


Hosted by the International Mental Lexicon Research Group


Sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada


The International Conference on the Mental Lexicon brings together
psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the
representation and processing of words in the mind. The conference
encourages the variety of perspectives on lexical representation and
processing and, in particular, clinical and computational submissions.

The 2002 conference will be held in Banff Alberta, Canada
(www.discoverbanff.com). Banff is a resort town in the Rocky Mountains
and is a 1.5 hour drive from Calgary, Alberta. The Conference will be
held at the Banff Centre, a conference facility that integrates
meeting rooms, hotel accommodation and daytime food services
(www.banffcentre.ab.ca).

The conference will take place over three days (October 6, 7, & 8,
2002). As in the previous two meetings (Edmonton 1998 & Montreal
2000), the conference will include both 15-minute platform
presentations and poster sessions on each day.

The conference is again hosted by the Mental Lexicon Research Group-
an international collaborative research initiative funded by the
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Past
meetings have each resulted in special issues of Brain and Language. A
third publication of peer-reviewed papers from the conference is again
planned for publication in 2003.

HOW TO SUBMIT ABSTRACTS

We invite abstract submissions for both platform and poster
presentations. The revised deadline for receipt of abstracts is: May
1, 2002. Please submit your abstract electronically as an e-mail

2. To have your paper considered for platform presentation only: "ML
Conference abstract platform"

3. To have your paper considered for poster presentation only: "ML

Please prepare your abstract as a Microsoft Word document using Times
New Roman 12-point font with one-inch margins on all sides. If
