Special topic: CONVERSATION
The conference is open to all other pragmatics-related topics
as well (where pragmatics is interpreted very broadly as a
cognitive, social, and cultural perspective on language and
communication). The distribution of topics across event types
is described below.

Plenary lectures: A number of plenary lectures on a diversity
of topics of general interest. Plenary speakers will include:
Penelope BROWN (Nijmegen), Fernando CASTA=A5OS (Mexico City),
Eve CLARK (Stanford), Catherine KERBRAT-ORECCHIONI (Lyon),

Lecture sessions: Regular lecture sessions (20-minute
presentations followed by 5 minutes for discussion and
allowing 5 minutes for switching between sessions) are
reserved for papers which are directly related to the special
topic of the conference. The Conference Committee reserves
the right to place individually submitted abstracts, the
quality of which would normally make them acceptable for
presentation, in poster sessions (as opposed to the lecture
sessions) on the basis of their relative distance from the
special topic.

Poster sessions: Poster sessions are largely devoted to
papers of general interest. Four different sets of posters
stay up for a whole day on four different days. Authors of
posters will be expected to be available for discussion
during a period when no other sessions are held. Individually
submitted papers which are less directly related to the
special topic will be placed here, though it is also possible
to submit papers directly for the poster sessions. (All
abstracts, including those for poster presentations, will be
printed in the set of abstracts provided at the beginning of
the conference!)

Panels: Panels take the form of a series of closely related
lectures on a specific topic, which may or may not be
directly related to the special topic of the conference. They
may consist of one, two or three units of 90 minutes. Within
each panel unit a maximum of four 15-minute presentations are
given consecutively, followed by 30 minutes of discussion
(either devoted entirely to an open discussion, or taken up
in part by comments by a discussant or discussants). The
organizers of panels are responsible for submitting the
complete set of abstracts before the regular abstracts
deadline and, in case of acceptance, for the further
preparation of the event (which will involve, for instance,
making sure that the discussants receive drafts of the
complete papers before the conference).=20

Round Table: A round table discussion is being planned to
close the conference.

Ten copies of a one-page abstract (or of the set of abstracts
in case you are proposing a panel) should be sent before
November 1st 1995 to the following address:

 IPrA Secretariat
 P.O. Box 33 (Antwerp 11)
 B-2018 Antwerp

All abstracts should contain (in this order): Full name, full
address, title of your presentation, and a summary of your
topic, approach, and major conclusions. Only hard copies are

(i) It is not possible for the organizers to consider paper
or panel proposals other than those submitted by members;
non-members interested in presenting a paper or
proposing/participating in a panel should apply for
membership, using the attached form, before the November 1st
1995 abstracts deadline. This condition can be waived only
for prospective participants from countries with serious
currency restrictions.

(ii) Accepted papers/panels cannot be entered into the
preliminary program unless the advance registration fee is
paid before the March 1st 1996 advance registration deadline;
notices of acceptance will be sent out in late January 1996.
Prospective participants who have to withdraw at a later date
due to circumstances beyond their control, will be partly
compensated for the financial loss: they will receive a copy
of the set of abstracts by mail, and the remainder of their
registration fee will count as payment for their 1997 IPrA
membership dues.

Through the generosity of the local organizing committee of
the 4th International Pragmatics Conference held in 1993 in
Kobe, Japan, it will be possible to provide one or more
fellowships to scholars from countries with currency
restrictions to enable them to participate in the 5th
International Pragmatics Conference in Mexico City.
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae along with
their paper abstract, together with a letter specifying the
support they would need.=20

Prospective participants will have to register directly with
the local Conference Secretariat at the following address:
