Time: October 29-30, 1996.

 discussion. Others besides the invited speakers are
 welcome to attend the symposium (upon payment of a
 small registration fee) and participate in the
 discussions. If you are interested in attending the
 symposium, please contact Jaan Ross before May l5,

Language: the language of the conference will be English.

Publication: it is planned to prepare and publish a bilingual
