Subject: 7th International Pragmatics Conference

7th International Pragmatics Conference, early July 2000, Budapest, Hungary

Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee: Frenc Kiefer, IPrA President

 Special Theme:

 Cognition in Language Use:

 The role of perception and representation, memory and planning, and
 metalinguistic awareness.

As usual, the conference will be open to all other topics relevant to the
field of pragmatics conceived broadly as a functional - i.e. cognitive,
social, and cultural - perspective on language and language use. There will
be plenary lectures (some on the special theme, others on topics of wider
interest), parallel lecture sessions (on topics related to the special
theme), poster sessions (on topics outside of the special theme area), and
panels (which may be on any topic relevant to pragmatics). Letters of
intent for the organization of panels may already be sent to the IPrA
Secretariat. A full call for papers will be distributed in January/February
1999. The anticipated deadline for abstracts is 1 November 1999.
