 The 22nd International Systemic-Functional Congress
 Beijing, China
 18-22 July 1995

 The involvement of Systemic Functional Linguistics in computational
 applications has grown to a point at which it would be beneficiary
 to take stock of the various ongoing activities.

 There are a number of interesting problems that arise
 if one uses Systemic Functional theory for natural language
 processing (NLP). The goal of the section is to give researchers
 using Systemic Functional theory (or aspects of it)
 for NLP applications a chance to talk about issues of common interest,
 introduce their approaches to particular problems and (perhaps)
 work out solutions together.

 The idea is to organize the section as a mixture of talks and extensive
 discussions. If it turns out that there are some really BURNING
 issues, it is also possible to have workshops tailored to particular
