Meeting Description:

International Conference
Cognitive Modeling in Linguistics´┐ŻEuro(tm)2003
Varna, Bulgaria
September 1-7, 2003



Conferences on Cognitive Modeling have been held with success since
1998. In 2000 the title was changed to "Cognitive Modeling in
Linguistics". In 1998 and 2000 the conference on Cognitive Modeling
was held as a part of the National Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (CAI), and Divnomorskoe (Russia) hosted the conference in
2001 as a part of the International Congress on Artificial
Intelligence (ICAI-2001) and in 2002 as a part of the IEEE
International Conference "Artificial Intelligence Systems" (IEEE
AIS'02). This year the conference is to be held in Varna (Bulgaria) as
a joint event of "Cognitive Modeling in Linguistics" and
"Computerization of Natural Languages". The aim of the conference is
to integrate the efforts of specialists in cognitive psychology,
learning theory, neural networks, cognitive linguistics, knowledge
engineering, semiotics, and psycholinguistics in their investigation
of cognitive processing of language information.

ICPLA 10th Symposium
Call for Papers 

Call Deadline extended: 15-June-2003 

The 10th meeting of the International Clinical Phonetics and
Linguistics Association (ICPLA) will take place in Lafayette,
Louisiana in 2004, and the Organising Committee is now issuing the
formal Call for Papers. The Conference will take place from Wednesday
night 25 February 2004 until Saturday 28th. An innovation for ICPLA10
will be the introduction of a fourth plenary lecture, on Wednesday
night, just before the welcoming buffet/ reception. This plenary will
be presented by Dr John W. Oller, Jr., and the other plenary speakers
will be Dr David Ingram (Arizona State University), Dr Gary Weismer
(University of Wisconsin, Madison) and Dr Claire Penn (Case Western
Reserve University and the University of the Witwatersrand, South

ICPLA10 has been timed to allow delegates to attend the Mardi Gras
celebrations in Louisiana just before the conference starts. Mardi
Gras parades and festivities take place, of course, in New Orleans,
and Baton Rouge. But there are also many other towns in the Acadiana
region of the state that hold celebrations. Lafayette itself hosts
several parades, and arrangements will be made with the conference
hotel to provide special rates for delegates deciding to come a day or
two early. Full details on accommodations and costs will be available
in the next couple of months, and members will be e-mailed. Details
will also be made available on the ICPLA
website. (

We now invite all ICPLA members to submit abstracts for consideration
at ICPLA10. We do also welcome abstracts from non-members. Papers in
all areas of our field are welcomed. Members receive a discount
conference rate. Abstracts should be submitted electronically to The abstract should be no longer than 350 words;
please state whether you wish the abstract to be considered as an oral
presentation (20 mins + 10 mins discussion) or a poster, or for
either. As with ICPLA9, we hope to publish selected papers in
'Clinical Linguistics and Phonetics' and the 'Journal of Multilingual
Communication Disorders'. 

Please provide abstracts in the following format: title; author(s) and
affiliation(s); text of abstract; references (please keep to minimum);
status (oral / poster / either); name and full postal address of
communicating author, together with phone, fax, and e-mail details.
Please submit abstracts by 15th June 2003. We aim to inform authors of
