After a very successful first Semitic Syntax conference at USC

to be held June 26-27, 1999. The conference will be preceded by a workshop

place during the Linguistic Society of America Summer Institute (June
21-July 30)
which will be held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
(website: http://www.beckman.uiuc.edu/linginst). Participants will be
selected on the basis of refereed anonymous abstracts, to be judged by a
selection committee. Each talk will be 40 minutes long with an additional
15 minutes for discussion.

Please send 10 copies of an anonymous abstract, at most 2-pages long
(including examples and references). Please enclose a 3x5 card with
submission stating name of paper, name of author, affiliation and address,
including e-mail address, phone number, and indicate clearly whether the
paper is for the conference or the workshop. The name of the author SHOULD
NOT appear on the abstract. Submissions by e-mail or fax will not be
accepted.
