Message 1: SALT 8 - First Call for Papers

From: SALT 8 Conference <salt8MIT.EDU>
Subject: SALT 8 - First Call for Papers

 SALT 8 - First Call for Papers

 Semantics and Linguistic Theory
 Eighth Annual Meeting
 Massachusetts Institute of Technology
 May 8-10, 1998

SALT 8 welcomes submissions for 30-minute presentations (with 10
additional minutes for discussion) on any topic in the semantic
analysis of natural language emphasizing the connection to linguistic
theory. Authors should submit 10 copies of abstracts, no more than 2
pages (1000 words) long. Authors' names, address, affiliation, status
(faculty/student), phone number and e-mail address, paper title, and
list of prior or planned presentations at other conferences should
accompany the abstracts on a 3x5 card. Fax or E-mail submissions will
not be accepted.

- -------------

SALT does not accept papers that by the time of the conference have
appeared or have been accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed

Preference will be given to presentations not duplicated at other
major conferences (including LSA, NELS, WCCFL, etc.). Authors are
asked to indicate prior or planned presentations of their papers on
the abstract submission card.

Any person can submit at most one abstract as sole author and a second
abstract as co-author or two abstracts as co-author.

Choose a title that clearly indicates the topic of the paper. State
the problem or research question raised by prior work, with specific
references to relevant prior work. State the main point or argument of
the proposed presentation. Give at least one critical example, with
explanation of why and how it supports the main point or
argument. When examples are in languages other than English, provide
word by word glosses. State the relevance of your ideas to past work
or to the future development of the field. Describe analyses in as
much detail as possible. Avoid merely saying "a solution to this
problem will be presented". [adapted from the LSA guidelines for
abstract submissions] 

Deadline for submission of abstracts is Tuesday December 2, 1997. The
program will be announced in February 1998.
