Message 2: 1998 GLOW Colloquium (second call, and updated)

Date: Thu, 17 Jul 1997 05:58:27 -0400 (EDT)
From: Shravan Vasishth <vasishthling.ohio-state.edu>
Subject: 1998 GLOW Colloquium (second call, and updated)

 The GLOW Colloquium (Extraordinary) 1998

 Hyderabad, India
 January 20-22, 1998
 
 Central Institute of English & Foreign Languages,
 Hyderabad, India
 
 
 Call for Papers
 
 We are happy to announce that the GLOW organization has agreed to
 a GLOW colloquium in Hyderabad (India), which will be the first
 meeting of GLOW to be held in Asia. This is in response to a need
 expressed by some Asian linguists for a geographically more
 accessible GLOW. (The Hyderabad colloquium will be in addition to
 the GLOW colloquium in Tilburg in the same year.)
 
 The aim is to bring together current theoretical discussion in
 Europe and America and language data and analysis sourced from
 ongoing work in universities in the Asian region.
 
 
 This extraordinary GLOW colloquium
 
 * will follow the GLOW pattern of organization for the conference
 programme, and its procedure for selection of abstracts
 
 * will, as the first GLOW meeting in Asia, aim to focus generally
 on Asian generative linguistics, but will not be further
 restricted with respect to theme.
 
 Invited Speaker: Mamoru Saito, Nanzan University, Japan.
 
 
 Abstract Submission
 
 The colloquium will consist of approximately 20 talks of 45 minutes
 each, followed by 15 minutes of discussion. Abstracts may not
 exceed 2 pages with at least a 1 inch margin on all four sides and
 should employ a font no smaller than 12 pt. They should be sent
 anonymously in tenfold, accompanied by a camera-ready original with
 the author's name, address and affiliation, to

 General Information
 
 Accommodation
 
 Speakers will be given accommodation and food in the guest houses
 of CIEFL and neighbouring science Institutes, free of charge. Non-
 speaker participants will be offered inexpensive University
 accommodation and food on a first-come basis. We regret that we are
 not in a position to offer even partial reimbursement for speakers'
 travel, but hope that lower living expenses in Hyderabad will
 partly make up for this. (Hyderabad can also provide hotel
 accommodation of acceptable standard at very inexpensive rates
 compared to Europe.)
 
 
 The Venue
 
 The Colloquium and the Workshop will be held in the main building
 of the Central Institute of English & Foreign Languages
 (Hyderabad).
 
 Hyderabad is on the tourist map of India, being an old city
 (founded c. 1500 A.D). It has a distinctive Deccani muslim culture.
 It is well-connected by air and rail to Bombay, Delhi and Madras,
 and also to tourist resorts like Goa. The town has some good eating
 places and a long tradition of excellent cuisine. The weather in
 January is temperate (between 24 and 12 degrees C).
 
 Travel
 
 International air-fares are at their annual lowest during the
 period beginning January 12th. Participants may be able to make a
 further saving by booking tickets early.
 
 The Hyderabad airport receives very few international flights; so
 international travellers usually arrive at Bombay, Delhi, Calcutta
 or Madras and change to a domestic airline. Make sure that you have
 a confirmed ticket on the domestic sector.
 
 "Pre-paid" taxis are available at the Hyderabad airport. (Ask for
 'Arts College', a nearby landmark.)
 
 
 Conference Fee
 
 A conference fee of (Indian) Rs 750 or US$ 25 must be paid by bank
 draft drawn in favour of GLOW Colloquium, CIEFL, Hyderabad. Payment
 by credit cards cannot be accepted.
 
 
 National Currency
 
 The national currency is the (Indian) Rupee. The current exchange
 rates are (approximately)
 
 US$ 1 = Rs 36
 Sterling = Rs 57
 DM 1 = Rs 20
 FF 1 = Rs 6
 
 
 Visas
 
 A tourist visa is recommended. We can send an official letter of
 invitation for other types of visas (if required).
