======<><><><><><><><><><><><><>====== 

The European Language Resources Association, ELRA, is organising an
Exhibition at the First International Conference on Language Resources
and Evaluation in Granada, Spain.

The exhibition is open to companies wishing to promote, present and
demonstrate their products and prototypes, to the wide range of
experts and representatives from all over the world, participating in
the conference. You will have an excellent opportunity to meet with
all of the major players in the area of Language Engineering, both
from main international and national companies and from European CEC
projects.

The number of accepted papers to be presented at the conference is
well over 200, and we are expecting more than 350 participants,
balanced between academia and industry. Panel sessions on important
topics will attract major decision makers. The themes of these panels
will include: "Funding LRs" - economic aspects and thoughts on the
future for the field of evaluation; "International programmes in LE" -
European, American and world-wide programmes in comparison.

To benefit from this remarkable opportunity and for further details
and registration, please contact the ELRA secretariat in Paris:

Re: proposed session at AAA 98 (Philadelphia): Language as Metaphor
and Metaphors for Language (update) 

I advertised this proposed session here in January, as well as in the
February issue of the AAA Newsletter, and although i have had a number
of responses, only a few of them were in keeping with the theme, so i
am still accepting submissions until March 15. I won't repeat the
description here, but will email it to anyone who asks. See the AAA
website (www.ameranthassoc.org) for general information.
