Subject: Southeast Asian Linguistics Society Conference Call
 May 9 - 11, 1996
 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The conference will feature papers on any of the languages of Southeast
Asia. Topics will include:

* descriptive, theoretical or historical linguistic 
 language planning
* literacy
* bilingual education
* linguistic anthropology 
* language atitudes and ideology 
 discourse and conversational analysis
* language and gender 
 language and politics

Abstracts are invited for the conference. By February 5, 1997 please
submit five copies of an anonymous abstract with a separate 3 x 5"
card identifying:

1. the author, his/her affiliation;
2. address where notification or rejection should be mailed in
3. daytime telephone number; and

4. e-mail address, if available.

The abstract should not exceed one page; an additional page of data
and references may be submitted.

Papers presented at SEALS VII will be published in the Society's
Proceedings (by the Southeast Asia Program, Arizona State University).
To ensure inclusion in the volume, authors are asked to submit a
camera-ready copy of their papers by August 15, 1997. Presentations
will be 20 minutes in length, with 10 minutes for questions.

This conference is intended to bring together researchers who
work on psychologically motivated computational models of human
language. We solicit contributions on models of linguistic
processing, acquisition, or representation at every level:
phonetic, phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, and
pragmatic. The goal of the conference is to build bridges
between computationally oriented researchers who have focused on
different aspects of human language processing.


We solicit extended abstracts for oral or poster presentations on
psychologically motivated computational models of human language
processing, or empirical or theoretical results bearing on such
models. Papers/posters may concern any aspect of human language
processing, including but not limited to:

 phonetic, phonological, or morphological processing
 lexical access
 acquisition of phonology or morphology
 acquisition of syntax and semantics
 syntactic parsing
 semantic and pragmatic interpretation, text understanding
 conversation (e.g. turn taking, pauses, discourse cues)
 lexical choice

Authors are urged to write for computationally literate
researchers that may not be in their own subfield. We hope the
conference will afford people an opportunity to present work in
progress for feedback, and to get ideas and epiphanies from other
computational or psychological researchers with different
backgrounds. To facilitate the interchange of ideas, the
schedule will set aside a significant amount of time for
discussion, as well as an outing, probably to Napa for


The submission should consist of a title/identification page plus
an abstract.

The title page should contain the title, author(s),
affiliation(s), and the submitting author's mailing address,
telephone number, fax number and e-mail address, as well as a
Please note that oral presentations and posters will be
considered to be of equal status at this conference; as a result,
they will be reviewed equally, and will have equal chances of
appearing in subsequent publications. In order to help place
oral and poster presentations on an equal footing, both poster
and oral presenters will give 2-3 oral summary "previews" of
their presentations. However, authors may not get their first
choice of presentation method because of scheduling conflicts.

The actual abstract should be 2-3 pages long, in sufficient
detail to allow substantive evaluation. It should not contain
the authors' names or addresses, as reviewing will be blind.
Furthermore, self-references that reveal the authors' identity
(e.g. "We previously showed (Chiu, 1991)...") should be avoided.
Instead use references like "Chiu previously showed (Chiu, 1991)

Submissions by e-mail are STRONGLY encouraged. Acceptable
formats for electronic submissions include, in order of

 1) HTML
 2) Postscript (e.g. from LaTeX)
 3) ASCII (plain text)

A sample HTML skeleton abstract form which may be downloaded and
copied, as well as other submission details, are included on our

We expect that some or all of the submissions will be published
in either a conference or a themed volume. Submissions for
publication will be full-length papers, and will themselves be
reviewed at a later date. Please keep checking the web page for
further information on publishing plans.
