*** SECOND AND LAST CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ***

MAD'01: 4th International Workshop on

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Discourse

Improving text: From text structure to text type

5-8 August 2001, Ittre (Belgium)

****************************************************************************
There is still room for a few non-speaking participants ("first come - 
first serve"). Please register BEFORE 15 June 2001, otherwise we cannot 
guarantee availability of (on-site) accommodation.

GOAL AND TOPICS:
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from different
disciplines, in particular theoretical and applied linguists, computational
linguists, and psycholinguists, to exchange information and learn from each
other on a common topic of investigation: text and discourse. More
specifically, the question to be addressed is "What makes a good text
good?" Text quality depends upon many factors and can in itself be
considered a complex concept (what is good for one aspect of the text need
not benefit other aspects). In order to make real advances in the domains
of text quality and document design, it is necessary to combine results
from both theoretical (linguistics) and experimental (psychology) research.
