Abstract:

This volume presents important results of the Collaborative Research Center
(Sonderforschungsbereich) "Situated Artificial Communicators," which was
funded by grants from the German Research Foundation (Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft) for more than twelve years. 

The contributions focus on different aspects of human-human and
human-machine interaction in situations which closely model everyday
workplace demands. The authors are linguists, psycho- und neurolinguists,
psychologists and computer scientists at Bielefeld University. They jointly
tackle questions of information processing in task-oriented communication.
The role of key notions such as context, integration (of multimodal
information), reference, coherence, and robustness is explored in great depth. 

Some remarkable findings and recurrent phenomena reveal that communication
is, to a large extent, a matter of joint activity. The interdisciplinary
approach integrates theory, description and experimentation with simulation
and evaluation.

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $52,932. This money will go to help keep the 
List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 2006 
LINGUIST List Cruise for some Fund Drive fun!

http://linguistlist.org/cruise.html 

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form.

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to donate by 
check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
