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.

We distribute the program for Twendial'98. Twendial'98 aims at
bringing together researchers from various backgrounds that apply
formal methods to the study of dialogue phenomena. In particular, we
hope to bridge the widely recognised gap between theory and practice
in the design of dialogue systems. Twendial'98 is organized by Joris
Hulstijn and Anton Nijholt of the University of Twente, Enschede, the
Netherlands.

Invitation

Researchers and students with an interest in dialogue phenomena and
formal methods are invited to take part in the workshop. Fees include
a copy of the proceedings, lunches, coffee and tea during breaks and
an informal reception. Regular fee for the workshop is Dfl. 175,- To
