Message 2: Site for SCIL V

Date: Sun, 17 Nov 91 22:33:46 EST
From: Student Conference in Linguistics <>
Subject: Site for SCIL V
Hello everyone,
let us first take this opportunity to remind all students that the deadline
for next year's SCIL conference is coming up in a month and a half and also
to encourage you to send in abstracts. Below you'll find another call for
papers. The other reason that we're posting this message is to see
who might be interested in hosting SCIL V in 1993.
After hosting the first three conferences, the folks at MIT thought it
was time to take a break and to let someone else take over. So in 1992, it's
OSU's turn. Ideally, we should have a different place hosting SCIL every
year (with the proceedings centrally published through MIT).
So, if there are students at departments in North America who would like to
host SCIL in 1993, they should contact us sometime before the next business
meeting at the conference in April.
