Subject: reminder/Cognitive Science Conference

The 1997 Cognitive Science Conference will take place at Stanford
University from August 7 to 10. This year we are trying to help the
conference regain its original breadth, and we are especially
interested in attracting participants from the linguistics community.

For those who have not yet heard, we have extended the arrival
deadline for full (six-page) papers until Tuesday, February 11, so
there is still time to submit. For details about length and format,
please see the call for papers in

If you cannot make the full-paper deadline, you can still submit a
one-page abstract by March 4, three weeks later. Most abstracts will
lead to poster presentations, but we may invite some abstract authors
to give regular talks.

If you have questions about the conference, or if you are willing
to review papers, please send email to
