The Fourteenth Annual Meeting of the Winter Conference on Discourse, Text &
Cognition will be held in the usual location: The Inn at Teton Village,
Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The meeting typically attracts cognitive scientists
interested in various aspects of language and text and the roles they play
in various types of cognitive activities, e.g., reading, conversation, and
learning. The meeting will take place from Friday, January 24, through
Monday, January 27, 2003. Sessions begin at 4:00pm and end at 8:00pm each
night. We have the option of extending the conference to a fifth day
(January 28th) if there are sufficient papers to warrant it.  This will be
determined at the end of October when we have an idea of the number of folks
who would like to present.

Proposals for symposia, individual paper presentations, or posters may be
submitted. The submission deadline is September 10, 2002. Proposals will
undergo review, with notification of acceptance to be provided by the end of
2002. (If you would like to review proposals please e-mail Susan Goldman).
Posters will be presented in an organized poster session.

Tim Koschmann has already indicated that he will organize a symposium on
video interactions.  If you are interested in organizing another symposium
or inviting a special speaker, please get in touch with Susan Goldman
