Language acquisition and Language universals,
Language and Animal communication,
Language evolution and Computer modelling.

All necessary information about this new scheme of activity is available at:

The deadline for submitting a proposal is 15 May 2001.

Details about EUROCORES' rationale and objectives are available at:

Furthermore, a Call for Proposals for Exploratory Workshops to be held in
2002 has been launched at the beginning of March. The deadline for

Finally, the 5th issue of 'Reflections', the ESF Humanities Newsletter, will
