FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN CONTRASTIVE SEMANTICS AND PRAGMATICS

 University of Brighton, 6-9 April 1995

 Call for Papers

The conference aims at bringing together researchers in various areas and
theories within semantics and pragmatics, with reference to any two
languages. We hope to present a spectrum of achievements in semantics and
pragmatics with both theoretical (including formal) and applied orientation.
We believe that increasing specialization in the area calls for such a
synthesis and recapitulation in the midst of the 1990s.

Invited speakers include: G. Fauconnier, F. Kiefer, B. Lewandowska-
Tomaszczyk, R. van der Sandt, P.A.M. Seuren, and others, to be announced
at a later date.

Participants' papers are invited. They should be 35 minutes long (maximum),
followed by up to 15 minutes discussion. The title `Contrastive Semantics
and Pragmatics' is understood broadly to accommodate all contributions to
the field and authors should feel free to present work on any topic
falling within the above area. The deadline for abstracts is 15 DECEMBER
1994. They should be not more than 300 words long, typed or word-processed
and sent to the organizers of the conference, Katarzyna Jaszczolt or
Kenneth Turner.

The conference is being organised by:

The Language Centre,
University of Brighton,
Falmer,
Brighton BN1 9PH,
United Kingdom

NEALL Conference 1994: The INTERNET Superhighway - How to get
into the Fast Lane
 CALL FOR PAPERS
NORTH EAST ASSOCIATION FOR LEARNING LABORATORIES (NEALL)

The North East Association for Learning Laboratories (NEALL) is
organizing its 1994 conference, to be held on Sept 31 - Oct 2 at
Cornell University in Ithaca NY. The overall intent of the
conference is to bring language lab directors and teachers
together to share the latest information on accession to and the
effective use of the INTERNET as it relates to its use in
language teaching. The conference seeks to create more effective
access ramps to the information Super Highway, increase awareness
as to the numerous destinations, facilitate movement throughout
the system and enhance information retrieval through such
features as ARCHIE, VERONICA and JUGHEAD.

The program is designed to offer something for everyone who has
an interest in the use of the INTERNET and wishes to use this
medium to enhance the pedagogy of foreign language teaching. It
is not only for the experienced practitioner, but also for the
INTERNET "wannabe's", who are grappling with the basic problems
of how to secure the fiscal and equipment resources required for
connection. Hopefully this conference will serve as a platform
for the development of stronger ties among the various INTERNET
user communities. Along this line, it is anticipated that one of
the sessions will be a free flowing showcase meeting where
everyone present will be called upon to share their particular
successes in finding useful INTERNET destinations, routes and
strategies.

Therefore, we invite papers/demonstrations on the use of the
INTERNET, not only as it relates to learning laboratories and the
teaching of foreign languages, but also on the political aspects
of the INTERNET, i.e. where and how to find fiscal and hardware
support.

However, in the interests of universality and flexibility, we
also invite papers on ANY topic which involves the innovative use
of computers/learning laboratories for foreign language teaching.

Extended abstracts (up to ten pages) are due by June 1, 1994.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by mid-August. Hard copy
submissions should be sent to the address below. E-mail
submissions are preferred.
