Subject:  ESSLLI'98 Student Session


       	           August 17-28, 1998, Saarbruecken, Germany

  			   Deadline: February 15th, 1998



We are pleased to announce the Student Session of the 10th European
Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI'98) organized
by DFKI and the University of Saarbruecken, Germany.  and taking place
at the University of Saarbruecken in August 17-28, 1998.  We welcome
submissions of papers for presentation at the ESSLLI'98 Student
Session and to appear in the proceedings.

This is going to be the third ESSLLI Student Session and as before, it
will provide an opportunity for ESSLLI participants who are students
to present their own WORK IN PROGRESS and get valuable feedback from
other researchers and fellow-students.  Presentation of creative and
innovative ideas is encouraged.

The ESSLLI'98 Student Session welcomes submissions from students at
any level, that is, from undergraduates (before completion of Master
degree) as well as postgraduates (before completion of PhD degree).
Note also that all authors of ESSLLI'98 papers have to be students,
papers co-authored by non-students cannot be accepted.

As in the previous years, the ESSLLI'98 Student Session will consist
of paper presentations.  The ESSLLI'98 Student Session has its own
timeslot in the ESSLLI'98 schedule: 60 minutes every day for two
weeks, provided that a sufficient number of good quality papers is
accepted.  Each presentation will last 30 minutes (including 10
minutes of discussion).

The Student Session papers should describe original, unpublished work,
completed or in progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and
promise.  No previously published papers should be submitted.  All
topics within the usual six ESSLLI subject areas are of interest,
without further restrictions.  The areas are as follows: Logic,
Linguistics, Computation, Logic & Linguistics, Logic & Computation,
and Linguistics & Computation.

The accepted papers will be published in the ESSLLI'98 Student Session
proceedings, which will be made available along with the readers for
the ESSLLI'98 courses.

Student authors should submit an anonymous extended abstract headed by
the paper title, not to exceed 4 pages of length exclusive of
references and a separate identification page (see below).  Note that
the length of the full papers will not be allowed to exceed 10 pages.

Since reviewing will be "blind", the body of the abstract should omit
author names and addresses.  Furthermore, self-references that reveal
the authors' identity (e.g., ``We previously showed (Smith, 1991)
...'') should be avoided.  Instead, use references like ``Smith (1991)
previously showed ...''.

To identify each paper, a separate identification page should be
supplied containing the paper's title, the name(s) of the author(s),
the author(s)' affiliation(s) and complete addresse(s) a short (5
line) summary and a specification of the subject area into which the
paper belongs.  The subject areas considered are: Logic, Linguistics,
Computation, Logic & Linguistics, Logic & Computation, and Linguistics
& Computation.

The student authors should submit their papers electronically to:

  korbay at ufal.mff.cuni.cz

For any kind of submission a plain ascii text version of the
identification page should be sent separately by email, using the
following format:

        title: <title>
        author: <name of first author>
        address: <affiliation and address of first author>
        author: <name of last author>
        address: <affiliation and address of last author>
        short summary (5 lines): <summary>
        subject area (one of):
        [ Logic | Linguistics | Computation | Logic&Linguistics |
        Logic&Computation | Linguistics&Computation ]

Please always submit the identification page in a separate message.

The submissions  should  be in one of the following formats:
- self-contained LaTeX source (the most encouraged)
- PostScript
- ASCII text

In order to present a paper at the ESSLLI'98 Student Session, every
student author has to register as a participant at ESSLLI'98.
However, authors of accepted papers will be eligible for a reduced
registration fee.

Subject:  Mini-Symposium '98 (Update)

Change of Conference Dates

Due to the unforeseen conflict of schedule with the Texas Linguistics
Society's conference on phonetics and phonology, the 1998
Mini-Symposium has been postponed to April 5, 1998. Please refer to
the revised Call for Papers below for the new deadline for abstract
submission and other important dates. We apologize for any


The Fourth Annual Mini-Symposium on Phonetics and Phonology

Sponsored by the Phonology Laboratory, the Department of Linguistics
and the Society of Linguistics Undergraduates (SLUG)

April 5, 1998

University of California

Berkeley, California

Inner Structure of Distinctive Features

Invited Speakers:

Bruces Hayes, University of California, Los Angeles

John Ohala, University of California, Berkeley

Abstracts are invited on papers which focus on the phonetic structure
of distinctive features and the relevance of them to our understanding
of the sound patterns in language. Potential topics include, but are
not limited to:

1.  The micro-structure of features, that is, the phonetic cues that
comprise them.

2.  Production. The articulatory implementation of distinctive features:
data and theories; articulatory and aerodynamic aspects.

3.  Perception. Salience of features in specific contexts. Dominance
relations between features. The extraction of features from the speech

4.  Phonetic validation of the domain of features: segments, syllables,
words. The varying temporal domains of features.

5.  Binary vs. gradual feature values. Ranges of allowable variation for
feature values. Binary vs. privative features.

6.  Features in Gestural Phonology

Papers will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes discussion.
