 The second international colloquium on deixis

Nancy, December 7-9, 1995

Following the very successful meeting that was held last year at the
University of Kentucky, the CRIN-CNRS&INRIA Lorraine invites you to the
second International Colloquium on Deixis to be held Thursday, December 7,
to Saturday, December 9, in Nancy, France.

The aim of the colloquium is to bring together researchers from different
fields such as linguistics, psychology, philosophy, semiotics, anthropology
or cognitive science who are interested in the description and the
intepretation of deictic phenomena in texts, human to human or human to
computer interactions. This suggests a wide range of possible theoretical
or methodological contributions as well as case studies of deixis in

Please send copies of an extended abstract (5 pages) or finished papers to
the colloquium organization by June, 15 1995.

Nancy is a medium sized town in the east of France with a strong academic
tradition. It is accessible by train from Paris or by plane thanks to its
new airport "Metz-Nancy Lorraine".
Many different hotels at all prices may host you during and after the
Colloquium. Details will follow with registration information.
