Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are excessively long. Also, please remember that, once posted, your announcement will be permanently available at our website: http://www.linguistlist.org/issues/indices/Confs1997r.html For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.

Subject: Congress on Storage & Computation in Linguistics 1998


In this message we ask your attention for 

the Utrecht Congress on Storage and Computation in Linguistics,

organized October 19th - October 21st 1998 (Monday through Wednesday)
by the Utrecht institute of Linguistic OTS, at the occasion of its
10th anniversary.

Keynote speaker is RAY JACKENDOFF (What's in the Lexicon?). 

Other invited speakers are: 
FRANS ZWARTS
(Negation, Temporal Connectives and Nonveridicality), 
ED KEENAN & ED STABLER
(Language invariance and Language Learnability), 
JAN KOSTER
(The uniformity of Grammar),
JOHN OHALA
(On the origin of the processes creating phonological varaints), 
GEERT BOOIJ
(Lexical storage and phonological change), 
HARALD CLAHSEN
(Storage and Computation of Language in Children with Williams
	Syndrome),
STEVEN GILLIS
(The acquisition of metrical phonology: 
Computational learning experiments with(out) parameters, 
NICHOLAS ASHER
(Discourse parsing and interpretation),
FRANS VAN EEMEREN
(Rhetorical analysis within a dialectical framework),
SALLY THOMASON
(Competition and rule creation in language variation and change), and
PIETER MUYSKEN
(Accommodation strategies in language contact).

Also there will be an evening lecture on Monday evening, October 19th,
by: STEVE PINKER "Words and rules".

This evening lecture will also be open to non-participants from UiL
OTS and from the National Graduate School of Linguistics LOT, in so
far as there sufficient places.

Besides the invited lectures there are 19 oral presentations of
selected papers, and 24 poster presentations. As of September 7th, a
full congress programme and registration form can be found on the
internet http://www-uilots.let.uu.nl/Conferences/sc_home.htm or can be
obtained from our secretariate.

NOTE THAT REGISTRATION IS NECESSARY ALSO FOR PARTICIPANTS FROM UiL OTS
AND LOT, AND THAT THE REGISTRATION FEE WILL BE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER
AFTER OCTOBER 1ST. THUS, ON-SITE REGISTRATION IS POSSIBLE, BUT WILL BE
RELATIVELY COSTLY.
