 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 TEACHING AND LANGUAGE CORPORA (TALC94)

 Lancaster University 10 - 13th April 1994

AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE

While the use of computer text corpora in research is now
well established, they are now being used increasingly
for teaching purposes. This includes the use of corpus
data to inform and create teaching materials; it also
includes the direct exploration of corpora by students,
both in the study of linguistics and of foreign
languages. Talc94 will bring together researchers and
teachers who are involved - or who would like to be
involved - in such work, to take part in an international
exchange of current experience and expertise.

DATE AND VENUE

The conference will be held on the campus of Lancaster
University, Lancaster, UK, from 4.00 p.m. on Sunday 10th
April to 4.00 p.m. on Wednesday, 13th April.
Accommodation will be provided in high-standard student
residences, with en suite facilities.

CONFERENCE ON INFORMATION-ORIENTED APPROACHES
TO LOGIC, LANGUAGE AND COMPUTATION
(4th Conference on Situation Theory and its Applications)

Saint Mary's College of California, Moraga, California, USA

Conference: June 12--15, 1994
Instructional workshops: June 8--11, 1994

In the past few years, there has been a growing sense of
convergence in information-based work in the study of
language and logic. Situation theory, domain theory, and
linear logic, for example, are increasingly seen as having
common underlying intuitions and motivations. For this
reason, it has been decided to broaden the focus of the
Situation Theory and its Applications conference from
situation theory, per se, to the general study of logic,
language and computation from an informational
perspective.

A special feature of this year's conference is a symposium
on visual reasoning, organized by Jon Barwise and John
Etchemendy.
