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.

PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT

First International Workshop on Written Language Processing

Sydney, Australia

7th-9th December 1998


The aim of this workshop (IWWLP) is to bring together researchers from
around the world who are interested in the cognitive processes
involved in reading. The emphasis will be on the empirical study of
orthographic, phonological, semantic and syntactic processing in
reading words and sentences. It is hoped that the research reported
throughout the workshop will include analyses of a broad range of
languages and types of script. Papers will be of 20 minutes in length
with 10 minutes extra for questions. There may also be poster
sessions depending on the number of participants involved.

The workshop will take place shortly after the 5th International
Conference on Spoken Language Processing that will also occur in
Sydney (30th November-4th December 1998, see:
http://trust.anu.edu.au:80/icslp98/).

There will be an official call for papers for IWWLP at a later
date. At this stage, we are wanting to develop a mailing list of
interested parties and to determine the approximate number of
participants. If there is any chance of you participating, please send
an email to M.Taftunsw.edu.au (as soon as possible) saying the
following:
