 APRIL 9 - 11, 1997
 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's language institute and the 
 Humanities and Social Science department, with the Center for 
 Aerospace Safety Education invites all interested parties to 
 participate in an aviation communications conference:
 "Aviation Communications: a Multi-Cultural Forum."
 This conference is intended to be a vehicle for ideas and information 
 to be exchanged concerning all aspects of communications including 
 linguistics, culture, gender, race, class, and globalization.
 It is not required that your research be in aviation. It is only 
 necessary that your work is transferable to aviation situations in 
 cockpits, between cockpit and tower, maintenance operations, 
 human-machine interface, etc. Optimal communication is often
 problematic because of gender, racial, cultural, linguistic, 
 economic, political, etc. assumptions hidden behind standard

 Please note that this conference will be an outstanding opportunity
 for industry, government, and other funding sources to make direct
 contact with researchers. 

 Some suggested areas:
 Human Factors Language Studies 
 Barriers to Communications Communication Studies
 Intercultural Communications English as a Second Language 
 Technology and Culture Studies Science and Technology Studies 
 Risk and Technology Politics of Technical Decisions
 Cybernetic Communication Political Psychology of Communication
 Language/communication models of terrorism,intelligence,organized 
 crime,foreign policy, and security
 Globalization of language/communication 
 ***There may be other areas which are applicable; the above
 are only suggestions.

 If received before March 7, 1997, conference registration fee is $50 
 for academic participants and $150 for industry participants. 
 (Regisitration fees received after Mar. 7, will be $100 and $200 
 for academic and industry attendees, respectively.) The registration 
 fee will cover banquet dinner, lunches, and refreshments; as well as
 a copy of the published proceedings.
 We believe that these organizations would benefit from this gathering:
 national airlines communication industries 
 international airlines all branches of armed services 
 international safety agencies language related organizations 
 regulatory agencies academic institutions
