A conference entitled "Structure and context in language processing: A
psycholinguistic conference in honor of Donald J. Foss" will be held
October 11-12, 1996 in Austin, Texas at the Thompson Conference Center
at the University of Texas. This conference is cosponsored by The
Psychology Department of The University of Texas at Austin, The
Science Directorate of the American Psychological Association, and
friends of Donald J. Foss.

'Structure and context in language processing' is an important theme
for many areas of psycholinguistics -- parsing, speech perception,
language acquisition, language evolution, and others. At the
conference psycholinguists from a variety of areas will come together
to share their theoretical insights and empirical evidence on this
topic. Individually, they focus on different parts of the processing
picture; collectively, they provide insights into processing of a
number of linguistic structures (syntactic, morphological, prosodic,
etc.), in a number of contexts (which involve factors that go beyond
linguistic structure). Invited speakers include: Thomas G. Bever,
Helen Smith Cairns, Charles Clifton, Anne Cutler, Randy L. Diehl,
Catharine H. Echols, David Fay, Kenneth Forster, Merrill F. Garrett,
Morton Ann Gernsbacher, Philip Gough, James J. Jenkins, Beth
L. Losiewicz, Peter F. MacNeilage, Richard P. Meier, Robert E. Shaw,
Shari R. Speer, David Swinney, and Kathy Y. van Nice. The closing talk
will be given by our guest of honor, Donald J. Foss.

The registration fee is $75.00 ($40.00 for students), which includes
breaks, lunches, and a reception aboard the Lone Star riverboat on
Friday, October 11. There is an additional fee of $30.00 for those
attending the banquet in honor of Don Foss on Saturday, October
12. Participants must register by the deadline; there will be NO
on-site registration. The FOSS CONFERENCE REGISTRATION DEADLINE is
very soon: TUES, OCT 1.
