Meeting Description:

Following the success of the previous international colloquia on
Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution at Lancaster in 1996, 1998
and 2000, and Lisbon in 2002, the next colloquium in the series will
take place in S. Miguel, Portugal, in 2004.

DAARC2004 aims to continue the trend set by the previous DAARC events,
