Meeting Description:


John Brigham has asked me to organize the panels for the Association
which will meet in conjunction with the International Association of
Semiotic Societies that will meet in Lyon from July 7-12, 2004.  We
will hold our meeting concurrently with theirs, with the possibility
of people going to sessions at the main meeting, and their members
sitting in with us and perhaps schedule a small reception where those
who are interested can find out about us.

The theme of the international conference is Signs of the World:
Interculturality and Globalization, and while papers directed toward
that very broad topic are welcome, in the spirit of Bobbie Kevelson we
are of course open to all varieties of legal semiotics.

If you are interested in participating, please send me a short
paragraph length abstract, your name, title, and contact information.

Meeting Description:

**Deadline for poster and paper proposals: April 1, 2003**

The 15th Sociolinguistics Symposium, Europe's premier international
conference on language in society, will return to Newcastle (UK) after
18 years, in April 2004. It will be hosted by the University of
Newcastle upon Tyne, the University of Durham, University of
Northumbria, and the University of Sunderland.

The Sociolinguistics Symposia began in the 1970s by a group of
UK-based sociolinguists who saw the need for a fairly informal forum
to discuss research findings and to debate theoretical and
methodological issues concerning language in society. It has since
grown into a large, international conference, typically attracting
400-500 participants. Normally, it takes place once every two years in
a UK university but sometimes in continental Europe too. In 1986, the
University of Newcastle upon Tyne hosted the 6th Sociolinguistics
Symposium. We are very pleased that it will return in 2004.

Themes: Culture, Contact, and Change

Proposals that address the themes of the conference (Culture, Contact,
and Change) are especially welcome; however, the organisers welcome
papers on any aspect of sociolinguistics.

Keynote Speakers:

Peter Auer (University of Freiburg)
Jenny Cheshire (Queen Mary, University of London)
Jane Hill (University of Arizona)
Lesley Milroy (University of Michigan)
Shana Poplack (University of Ottawa) **REMINDER**

**Deadline for poster and paper proposals: April 1, 2003**
(The deadline for thematic panel proposals was March 2, 2003.)
