Meeting Description:

CALL FOR PAPERS
International Conference on English Language Teaching Instruction and
Assessment
April 24-25, 2004
International Conference Hall, Auditorium
National Chung Cheng University, Taiwan

Following the communicative theories of language and trends in
methodology, language assessment has shifted its focus from
discrete-point tests to performance-based measures. Now researchers
are documenting the importance of interweaving assessment with
instruction. Teachers are experimenting with alternate assessment
formats to profile students' growth and change. Nevertheless,
standardized tests are still used for screening and exit
decisions. Along with the development of technology in recent years,
most standardized tests are computer-based or web-based. Riding the
wave of changes in language assessment and its integration with
bewildering technology, we believe that keeping our sense of balance
will be facilitated by conversations with scholars from
English-speaking countries and by sharing our own EFL observations.
In addition, how to apply assessments to remedial instructions will
also be discussed in this Conference.

CALL FOR PAPERS: 
Abstracts are invited for 30-minute presentations (including 10
minutes for questions and comments) related to the overall theme,
including, but not limited to:
*communicative testing of language skills
*alternative (performance-based, interpretive, portfolio) assessment
*computer-based/web-based testing
*remediation
*any topic related to English teaching

CALL FOR WORKSHOPS: 
Abstracts are invited for 60-minute workshops (including 15 minutes
for questions and comments) related to the overall theme, including
but not limited to:

*computer-based/web-based testing
*remediation
*any topic related to English Language teaching

CALL FOR PUBLISHERS' SESSIONS: 
Abstracts are invited for 60-minute publishers' sessions in which
representatives of publishers demonstrate how a textbook or other
teaching material can be applied in the classroom.

CRITERIA FOR SELECTION:
All proposals will be subject to a blind review by a team of ESL/EFL
experts selected by the Conference Coordinating Committee. Relevance
to the topics of the conference and to English language teaching
practice in Taiwan and the neighboring regions, quality of research,

Message 2: Workshop on Numerals, Leipzig

Date: Fri, 01 Aug 2003 17:58:30 +0700
From: David Gil <gileva.mpg.de>
Subject: Workshop on Numerals, Leipzig

Department of Linguistics
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
Leipzig, Germany

Second Call for Abstracts

WORKSHOP ON
NUMERALS IN THE WORLD'S LANGUAGES

29 - 30 March 2004
Leipzig, Germany

###

The workshop will consist of one plenary lecture (to be announced),
some six papers by local participants, and approximately one dozen
papers chosen from submitted abstracts.

###

Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to
submit a one-page abstract, by regular mail, email, or fax, to David
Gil, at any of the following addresses:

Department of Linguistics,
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology,
Inselstrasse 22, D-04103 Leipzig, Germany

email: gileva.mpg.de 
fax: 49-341-9952119

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 October 2003

###

Papers presented at the workshop should be concerned with any aspect
of the morphology, syntax, semantics and discourse use of numerals.
Papers may deal with either the internal properties of numeral
expressions or their external properties, namely how they interact
with the larger linguistic units of which they form part. Papers may
be about cardinal numerals, or other types of numerals, such as
ordinal, collective, distributive, multiplicative, and so forth. Of
particular interest are papers which present novel facts about
numerals in little-known languages, papers which propose
cross-linguistic typological generalizations about numerals, and
papers which explore possible links between numerals and more general
aspects of cognition and culture.

###

Programme Committee:

Bernard Comrie
Patience Epps
David Gil
Eva Schultze-Berndt

###

The Workshop is being held immediately prior to the 5th Conference on
the Evolution of Language (Evolang), 31 March - 3 April 2004, also in
Leipzig.
