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.

 ISRAEL ASSOCIATION FOR THEORETICAL LINGUISTICS

 Forteenth Annual Conference


We enclose details about accommodation, travel and the schedule for
IATL 14, to be held be held in Ben Gurion University, Beer Sheva, on
June 8-9 1998. We hope you will be able to join us.

Accommodation: people wishing to book accommodation should contact 
Ariel Cohen (arikcbgumail.bgu.ac.il) ASAP.


There are three main options:

* BeerSheva Hilton: single 95$, double 115$, suite 220$ (all prices 
per night and include breakfast, the prices do not include 17% VAT).

* Neot Midbar Hotel: single 56$, double 74$, triple 104$, lunch 13$, 
dinner 22$ (at the Red Sand Grill restaurant).

* BGU dorms: shared apartment: 179 NIS(approx 50$) for one night, 
or 330 NIS (= 93$ approx) for up to a week. Own apartment 
(suitable for a couple): 265 NIS for one night, or 549 NIS 
for up to a week.

Travel: BeerSheva is well connected to both TelAviv and Jerusalem 
by fast, air conditioned Egged buses; ask driver for Ben Gurion
University stop. Once you're safely off the bus, cross the road,
main entrance becomes visible immediately.

Drivers: Turn left to Ben Gurion Ave., which is the street running south
of the university and north of a big hospital. Take the second
left turn (a turn without a traffic light; if you hit a light,
you have driven too far). You will see two gates with barriers; pick the
one on the left - this is the visitors (paid) parking.
