Subject: CLIC call for papers


The Center for Language, Interaction, and Culture Graduate Student Association

Issues its call for papers for the third annual student conference on
language, interaction, and culture to be held May 16, 1997, at Sunset
Commons, at the University of California, Los Angeles. The theme of
this year's conference is:

Embodiment in Social Interaction

Example topics include (a) non-vocal practices of social action, (b)
the interaction between vocal and non-vocal practices of social
action, and (c) practices for, and consequences of, making social
identities relevant in interaction.

The Center for Language, Interaction, and Culture (CLIC) is located at
the University of California, Los Angeles. The purpose of CLIC is to
promote cross-disciplinary discussion about issues regarding language
as a complex resource for thinking and acting in the world. CLIC is
composed of faculty and graduate students from anthropology, applied
linguistics, education, psychology, and sociology.

Submissions must be hard copy and should include (1) a detachable
title page that includes (a) the title of the paper, (b) the author's
name, affiliation, postal address, and e-mail address, and (c) a list
of equipment needed for the presentation; and (2) a 250-500 word
abstract of the paper. No information identifying the author may
appear in the abstract. Three copies of submitted abstracts must be
received no later than Friday, February 14, 1997. Late submissions
will not be accepted. Accepted papers will, with the permission of
the author, be published in the journal of Issues in Applied
Linguistics. Further questions can be addressed via e-mail to
<clicucla.edu>.

All submissions should be sent to:

CLIC Graduate Student Association
University of California Los Angeles
Department of Applied Linguistics
P.O. BOX 951531
3300 Rolfe Hall

interest group of the Association for Computational Linguistics)

DATES: 25-27 August 1997

LOCATION: Schloss Dagstuhl, Saarbruecken, Germany

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 31,1997

SUBMISSION ADDRESS: djohnswatson.ibm.com

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: Submissions are invited from all areas of
study that deal with the mathematical properties of natural language.
These areas include, but are not limited to, mathematical models of
syntax, semantics and phonology; computational complexity of
linguistic frameworks/theories and models of natural language
processing; mathematical theories of language learning; parsing theory;
and quantitative models of language.

If the co-chairs feel the area of a submitted paper cannot be adequately
reviewed by the program committee, an attempt will be made to get
outside reviews.

SUBMISSION FORMATS: All contributions to MOL5 are to be made
electronically as either an unformatted (plain text) ASCII file or

that selected papers will be published after peer review as a special
issue or collection.
