 Questions and Answers regarding ICCL-4/NACCL-7

Q: I have a few questions about the announcement of NACCL/ICCL to be
held at UW-Madison in June, 1994. First, is there a limit to regular
NACCL/ICCL submissions? For example, can one submit a co-authored
abstract and a single-authored one? Second, is the paper for the
Young Scholar Award to be presented at the conference (which has
not been presented before)? Third, should the paper for Young Scholar
Award address the issues of typlogy or can the paper discuss all
aspects of Chinese linguistics, theoretically or empirically?

A: As for the first question, the answer is YES. That is to say that
you can submit a co-authored paper and a single-authored one at the
same time. As for the second one, the answer also is YES, i.e. the paper
which wins the Young Scholar Award will be presented at the conference
and all of the papers submitted for this award should have been neither
presented nor published before. As for the third question, there is no
limitation for the themes of the papers submitted for the Young Sholar
Award. In other words, the theme of ICCL-4/NACCL-7, i.e. typology, is
set only for the regular papers submitted for the conference as well as
the talks given by the keynote speakers.
