SAL, Spanish Applied Linguistics
Special Volume: Cognitive Processing in Spanish Bilinguals
Edited by Cristina Sanz, Georgetown University
December 2000

The special volume Cognitive Processing in Spanish Bilinguals  will feature
papers that concern the Spanish bilingual and which involve the theoretical
and modelling approaches and the research methodologies used in cognitive
science. The volume will consist of five articles and one introduction.

Studies based on data from populations other than Spanish/English
bilinguals, such as Basque/Spanish, Catalan/Spanish and Quechua/Spanish,
are encouraged.

Proposals for contributions are welcome in all research areas related to
cognitive processing and psycholinguistics, including but not limited to
the following:

Third language acquisition
Metalinguistic awareness
Input processing
Lexical retrieval

The typical submission will be 20 pages in length, excluding tables, charts
and bibliography. SAL adheres to the guidelines established in the
Publication Manual of the APA.

For paper submission, e-mail an abstract of no more than one page  to
sanzc at gusun.georgetown.edu. You may send the abstract as the text of your
e-mail message or as an attachment (no WordPerfect format, please).
Confirmation will be sent via e-mail within two days following receipt of
the abstract.

The abstract should include the following information: Title, Author(s)
name(s) and affiliation(s), electronic addess, postal address, and phone

          2000 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2000)

  Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications

                          March 19-21, 2000
                       Villa Olmo, Como, Italy


SAC 2000:
Over  the past fourteen years,  the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has  become a primary  forum for applied computer scientists and
application developers from around  the world to interact and  present
their work. SAC 2000 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP)  and in cooperation  with ACM SIGs  SIGBIO,

Authors  are invited to contribute  original  papers in all  areas  of
experimental computing and  application  development for the technical
sessions. There  will be a number of special tracks on  such issues as
Programming Languages,  Parallel and Distributed Computing, Mobile and
Scientific Computing, Internet and the WWW, etc.

Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track:
A  special track on   coordination models, languages and  applications
will be held at SAC 2000.   The term "coordination"  here is used in a
rather  broad sense covering traditional   models and languages  (e.g.
ones based on the Shared Dataspace  and CHAM metaphors) but also other
related formalisms such as configuration and architectural description
frameworks, systems  modeling abstractions and  languages, programming
skeletons, etc.

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

   * Novel models, languages, programming and implementation techniques.
   * Relationship with other computational models such as object
     oriented, declarative (functional, logic, constraint) programming
     or extensions of them with coordination capabilities.
   * Applications (especially where the industry is involved).
   * Theoretical aspects (semantics, reasoning, verification).
   * Software architectures and software engineering techniques.
   * Configuration and Architecture Description Languages.
   * Middleware platforms (e.g. CORBA).
   * All aspects related to the modeling of Information Systems
     (groupware, Internet and the Web, workflow management, CSCW).

Guidelines for Submission:
Original papers from  the above-mentioned or  other related areas will
be considered.   This  includes  three categories  of  submissions: 1)
original and unpublished  research; 2) reports of innovative computing
applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government,
education  and industry;  and   3) reports  of successful   technology
transfer  to new problem domains.   Each submitted paper will be fully
refereed  and undergo  a  blind  review process    by at least   three
referees. The accepted papers  in all categories  will be published in
the ACM SAC 2000 proceedings.

Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

   * Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to either of the SAC 2000
     Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track Program Chairs
     (addresses shown above). Alternatively, submit your paper electronically
     in uuencoded compressed postscript format; this is strongly encouraged.
     Fax submissions will not be accepted.

   * The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body
     of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person.
     This is to facilitate blind review.

   * The body of the paper should not exceed 5,000 words (approximately
     15 pages, double-spaced).

   * A separate cover sheet (in the case of electronic submission this
     should be sent separately from the main paper) should show the title
     of the paper, the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the
     address (including e-mail, telephone, and fax) to which
     correspondence should be sent.

   * All submissions must be received by September 1, 1999.

Anyone wishing to review papers for this special track should contact the
Track Program Chairs at the addresses shown above.

Important Dates:
   * September 1,  1999: Paper Submission.
   * November  1,  1999: Author Notification.
   * December  1,  1999: Camera-Ready Copy.
