From: <>
Subject: LSA Calls for Papers

The privilege of offering papers for presentation at the
LSA Annual Meeting is open to all members of the Society.
During 1994, members may submit papers in four categories:
(1) anonymously reviewed 15-minute papers, (2) anonymously
reviewed 30-minute papers, (3) organized sessions, and
(4) anonymously reviewed poster sessions for topics in
psycholinguistics only. The guidelines and abstract
specifications may be found with the requisite submittal
form in the December 1993 LSA Bulletin or may be requested
from the Secretariat ( The
guidelines for abstract preparation must be rigorously
adhered to for the abstracts to be considered by the Program

Abstracts for all presentations at the Annual Meeting in New
Orleans, 5-8 January 1995, must be received with a submittal
form no later than 5:00 PM, 10 September 1994. Submissions
should be addressed to the LSA Secretariat, 1325 18th Street,
NW, Suite 211, Washington, DC 20036.

Members are urged to remember that post office delivery,
INCLUDING EXPRESS MAIL, is erratic. Abstracts received
after the deadline will not be considered and will be
returned to the authors. Strict enforcement of this
deadline is necessary to allow sufficient time to process and
prepare the abstracts for mailing to the Committee members.
All abstracts must be reviewed and rated before the Committee
meeting scheduled for 23-25 September 1994.

Software Poster Session

The Linguistic Society will again sponsor a poster session for
software. Participation is limited to LSA members who have
developed software of interest to the discipline and which may
be purchased for less than $100 in addition to the cost of
distribution media. Authors will be encouraged to discuss
further developments or to simplyh interact with users and
potential users one-to-one. Participants will be expected to
come to the meeting with posters and their own computers if
they wish to do demonstrations.

Abstracts of software discussed in poster form will be in the
Meeting Handbook. An abstract submittal form may be requested
from the Secretariat ( The
deadline for receipt of software abstracts is 14 October 1994.
Abstracts should be sent to: LSA Secretariat, 1325 18th Street,
NW, Suite 211, Washington, DC 20036-6501.
