 Second International Conference on

 August 16-20, 1994
 University of Maryland
 College Park, MD


In accordance with the theme of our 10th Anniversary meeting, of
focusing on future aspirations, we are offering an award of
$500 for the best proposal submitted describing a substantive
research project to be done using conceptual graphs (cgs).
Only bona fide students, that is, both graduates and undergraduates
currently registered at recognized educational institutions,
may make eligible submissions.

Proposals may deal with advances in theory, application, or
implementation. They ought to be substantive and thoughtful, including
enough detail to describe adequately the limits of the proposed project,
to a maximum of ten pages, preferably fewer. The planned research
is expected to be productive of significant results,
which may be measured or otherwise rigorously evaluated.

Five copies of each proposal must be sent to:

 University of Maryland
 College Park, MD 20742
 phone: 301-405-6722
 FAX: 301-314-9658

by AUGUST 1, 1994, along with proof of current student status, for example,
a letter affirming student status, from an institutional advisor or officer.

All eligible proposals will be published along with the shorter papers
presented at the Conference. The name of the winner will be
announced at the Reception on the last night of the Conference.
Ineligible proposals will be returned to submitters without review.

If you have further questions, please contact the General Chair of
ICCS'94, Judy Dick at, or telephone 301-405-2048.

A small amount of grant money is available for aid in student travel.
