 Theme: LITERATURE AND THE ANALYSIS OF DISCOURSE (WITH SPECIAL
 ATTENTION TO THE MULTICULTURAL CONTEXT.
 Gent University (Belgium), Wed 9 Sept 1992 - Fri 11 Sept 1992.
1.STATEMENT OF PALA'S AIMS.
Pala's principal aim is to encourage cooperation between scholars
and teachers interested in language and/or literary studies. The
interests of PALA members are wide, and this is reflected in papers
given at PALA conferences.
Interests of members include: stylistics, literary theory, the
teaching of language and literature, critical linguistics,
pragmatics, discourse analysis, textual understanding, rhetoric,
narratology, semiotic approaches to text and performance, socio-
linguistics, cultural studies, post-structuralist theory; in short,
any theme which has relevance to the study of language and
and literature and their role in society.
2. THE 1992 CONFERENCE THEME
To highlight the currently expanding field of discourse studies,
the 1992 conference will have as its core theme 'LITERATURE AND
THE ANALYSIS OF DISCOURSE, WITH SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE MULTI-
CULTURAL CONTEXT.
With this theme the organizers want to capture interests as wide
as the processes of writing and reading literature, the analysis
of dialogic text, the relationship between literary and non-
literary discourse, oral literary traditions, discourse theory,
literary communcation as social practice, etc.
Papers which deal with the writing and reading of literature in
the multilingual or multicultural context are especially welcome.
3. CALL FOR PAPERS
In keeping with the PALA tradition, papers will not be exclusively
restricted to the core theme, and anyone who is interested in giving
a paper, leading a workshop, presenting a poster session or organizing
some other kind of activity which PALA members will find of interest
is also invited to submit a proposal. This can be done by completing
the proposal form and mailing it to before 15 JANUARY 1992 to
PALA92ENGLLANG.RUG.AC.BE.
4. REGISTRATION & QUERIES

Message 2: ACL-92 Student Session Call for Papers

Date: Tue, 17 Dec 91 15:27:43 -0500
From: Don Walker <walkerflash.bellcore.com>
Subject: ACL-92 Student Session Call for Papers
			CALL FOR PAPERS
			Student Session
			 at the
30th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics
		 28 June - 2 July 1992
		 University of Delaware
		 Newark, Delaware, USA
PURPOSE: This session provides a forum in which student members
can present work in progress and receive feedback from other members
of the computational linguistics community, particularly senior
researchers. The session will be workshop-style, consisting of
short paper presentations and discussion.
REQUIREMENTS: Papers should describe original, unpublished work in
progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and promise. Topics
of interest are the same as for the main conference. All authors
must have ACL Student Membership at the time of the conference.
For membership information contact Don Walker at the address below.
Papers submitted to the main conference will not be considered for
the student session. Students may of course submit papers to both.
Note that having a student session for the presentation of ongoing
work in NO way influences the treatment of student-written papers
submitted to the main conference. Rather, the student session will
provide an entirely separate track emphasizing students' ``work in
progress'' rather than completed work.
FORMAT FOR SUBMISSION: Authors should submit four copies of an
extended abstract up to 3 pages long (including title, authors,
references, etc). Submissions should be laid out in the conventional
double-column conference format, with 1 inch margins on all sides,
and a typeface no smaller than 10 pt. In addition, a SEPARATE
``topic area'' page should include the title, name(s) of the
author(s), complete addresses (including e-mail), and one or more
keywords identifying the topic area. Send to:
	Lenhart Schubert (ACL Student Session)
	University of Rochester
	Computer Science Department
	Rochester, NY, 14627-0226 USA
	schubertcs.rochester.edu
EMAIL SUBMISSION: As an experiment, authors are encouraged to submit
an additional copy of their paper via email. LaTeX, Postscript,
or ASCII formats are acceptable. Also, please note the SCHEDULE
information below. Email submissions should be directed to:
	traumcs.rochester.edu (David Traum (+1-716) 275-7230)
SCHEDULE: Submissions must be RECEIVED by 10 FEBRUARY 1992. Authors
submitting email versions must have email versions arrive by this date
and hardcopy versions postmarked by this date; authors not submitting
email versions must have the hardcopy arrive by this date. Authors
will be notified of acceptance by 20 MARCH 1992. Camera ready copies
of final papers must be received by 20 APRIL 1992.
CONFERENCE INFORMATION: Programs and registration forms will be
mailed in March to ACL members. Nonmembers interested in receiving
copies, dues statements, and other information about the conference
or concerning the ACL generally, should contact Don Walker (ACL),
