CONSOLE 7 - Call for Papers
- -----------------------------

The seventh meeting of the Student Organisation of Linguistics in Europe
(ConSOLE) will be held at the University of Bergen, Norway, from 9 to 11
December 1998.

SOLE aims at providing students of generative linguistics with a
possibility of gaining international experience and a publication forum of
their own. Furthermore, SOLE strives to enhance contacts and cooperation
between students of generative linguistics in Europe and around the world.

Papers are solicited from students in the field of generative linguistics, 
more specifically in, but not limited to, phonology, morphology, semantics, 
sign language, language acquisition and syntax.

Submissions may be sent either by regular mail or e-mail. If regular mail
is used, please send five copies, of which four should be anonymous and one
should contain your name, affiliation, address and e-mail address.
Abstracts should be set in at least 10 point and must not exceed two
pages, including references, diagrams, and examples. Please send abstracts

E-mail submissions must be text only (ASCII format). Abstracts submitted in
this way should not exceed 1300 words, including references, diagrams, and
examples, and they may be sent to:

The deadline for submission is 1 August, 1998 (regardless of mode of

 Invited Speakers, Special Sessions

- Objectives 

This conference is the second of a series of European conferences on
research and technology for digital libraries funded by the European
Commission's TMR Programme. Its objectives are: to bring together
researchers from multiple disciplines whose science relates to the
development of digital libraries; to provide an opportunity for these
scientists to form a research community in Europe specific to digital
library development and to enable them to discuss issues and
strategies specific to the European context; to assist young
researchers in establishing relationships with senior scientists in
their areas of interest; to enable review and discussion of research
under way in Europe, the US, Japan and other countries on digital
libraries; to stimulate researchers, especially young scientists, to
explore new areas of interest in digital library development; to
establish a forum for discussion of issues specific to Europe such as
interoperability, multilinguality, intellectual property policy, and
information commerce; to provide an opportunity for researchers in the
relevant enabling technologies and information sciences, to discuss
issues related to interoperability between world wide distributed
digital libraries.

>From a technical point of view, the European Conferences series aims
to contribute to the definition of those digital library parameters
which especially influence issues of access, retrieval, and
interaction with information; to identify key problems which must be
solved to make digital library services an effective reality; to
identify a general structure or framework for integrating research and
solutions; and to propose and encourage specific, high priority
research directions within such a framework.

The conference organisers solicit papers on topics related to digital
libraries, including but not limited to the following list:

o Digital Library Models, Frameworks, and System Requirements 
o Metadata 
o System Integration and Architecture Issues 
o Interoperability, Scalability 
o Networked Information Discovery, Agent Technologies 
o Information Retrieval, Organisation, Navigation - Tools and
