Subject: Announcing the 2002 NFLRC Summer Institutes!


The National Foreign Language Resource Center (NFLRC) at the University of
Hawaii at Manoa is pleased to announce its 2002 line-up of Summer
Institutes, our big annual professional development opportunities, which
this year will focus on HERITAGE LANGUAGES, SAMOAN, CHINESE, KOREAN, AND
JAPANESE (pragmatics)!


1) HERITAGE LEARNERS AND NATIONAL LANGUAGE NEEDS (June 19-21 Symposium)

This symposium will provide practical information, theoretical
considerations, and program/curriculum models for language education that
utilizes existing heritage language resources. It will offer a range of
language, culture, literacy, and technology workshops by experts who have
extensive knowledge and experience in developing innovative K-16 heritage
language programs. Special pre-registration rates in effect through May
20, 2002. For more information, visit:

2) IA FAALAUTELE LAU GAGANA - SAMOAN PEDAGOGY WORKSHOP (June 24-29)

This workshop will bring together experts in Samoan Language teaching,
teacher training, materials development, and Samoan Language content areas
(e.g., oratory, grammar, literature) to share information and to discuss a
range of Samoan Language curriculum development issues (e.g., community
awareness, literacy education, resources, language structure, and use,
etc.). For applications or more information, visit:

		http://www.nflrc.hawaii.edu/prodev/si02s/


3) WEB-BASED WORKSHOPS FOR ADVANCED READING & WRITING DEVELOPMENT &
 MAINTENANCE (August 5-16 online Chinese & Korean workshops)

This workshop serves as an online professional development opportunity for
non-native-speaking teachers of Chinese and Korean language at the K-16
level. We will offer 2 concurrent two-week intensive language courses in
Chinese and Korean. The intensive courses, delivered entirely over the
World Wide Web using a tested and proven pedagogic model, focus on the
development and/or maintenance of communicative language skills at the
advanced level, with strong emphasis on written communication meeting high
standards of literacy. For applications or more information, visit:

The NFLRC is also pleased to co-sponsor the UHM Center for Japanese
Studies' 2002 Summer Institute . . .

4) PRAGMATICS IN THE JFL CLASSROOM: PERFORMANCE-BASED APPLICATIONS
 (July 22-August 2 Workshop)

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a wide range of
pragmatic phenomena in Japanese spoken discourse, and to explanations,
activities, materials, and approaches for the instruction of pragmatics in
the JFL (Japanese as a Foreign Language) classroom. The workshop will
provide an opportunity for anyone, regardless of their experience with
teaching pragmatics, to develop instructional materials and strategies for
introducing pragmatics to JFL learners. Interested Japanese language
educators teaching at the secondary or collegiate level are welcome to
apply. For more information, visit:

NASSLLI'02
The first North American Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information

and

LLC11
The eleventh Logic, Language, and Computation Colloquium at CSLI

June 24-30, 2002
Stanford University

*********

We are pleased to announce that the first North American Summer School in 
Logic, Language, and Information (NASSLLI) will take place at Stanford 
University from the 24th to the 30th of June. It will be followed by the 
eleventh Logic, Language, and Computation Colloquium (LLC) at CSLI, the 
program of which will be integrated with the school.

The thematic focus of NASSLLI is modeled on that of its European sister 
event, ESSLLI. As it is customary with schools of this nature, the classes 
will run from foundational and introductory to advanced. Each lecturer will 
give a set of five one hour lectures on a topic suitable for a broad 
audience interested in the interface of logic, language, and computation.

NASSLLI is ideal for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in 
linguistics, computer science, philosophy, mathematics and psychology, as 
well as postdoctoral students, IT professionals, and faculty seeking to 
extend their knowledge of the field.

We wish to extend you an invitation to join us here at Stanford between 
June 24 and June 30, 2002, in order to experience cutting edge research 
carried out by some of the finest teachers in North America and Europe.

Our program to date:

- Martin Abadi (CS, UCSC) [Computer Security]
- Samson Abramsky (CS, Oxford) [Games in Computer Science]
- Sergei Artemov (CS, CUNY New York) [Proof Polynomials]
- Patrick Blackburn (INRIA Lorraine) [Lectures on Hybrid Logic]
- Craig Boutilier (CS, University of Toronto) [Logical and Statistical 
Methods in AI]
- Joan Bresnan (Linguistics, Stanford) [Optimality Theory]
- Paul Dekker (Philosophy, Amsterdam) [Dynamics, Semantics, Pragmatics]
- R.E. Jennings (Philosophy, Simon Fraser University) [Logicalization]
- Ed Keenan (Linguistics, UCLA) [A Mathematical Theory of Grammatical 
Theories]
- Phokion Kolaitis (CS, UCSC) [Constraint Satisfaction, Complexity, and Logic]
- Larry Moss (Math, Indiana) [Dynamic Epistemic Logic]
- Marc Pauly and Mike Wooldridge (Liverpool) [Modal Logic and Agents]
- Fernando C.N. Pereira (Computer and Information Science, UPenn) [Machine 
Learning in Natural Language Processing]
- Frank Veltman (Logic & Cognitive Science, Amsterdam) [Logic in AI]
- Dag Westerstahl (Philosophy, Stockholm) and Stanley Peters (Linguistics, 
Stanford) [Generalized Quantifiers]



In addition to lectures, the event will include workshops, evening lectures 
by distinguished researchers, as well as sporting events, party and more.

There will be a limited number of scholarships awarded to eligible students.
