"Preference and Efficiency in Discourse"
Paris, November, 18-19, 2010

We are pleased to announce an international symposium on information
and meta-informative centering in natural languages to be held at
Paris-Sorbonne University on Nov. 18-19, 2010. The Meta-Informative
Centering Theory (MIC) is currently developed at CELTA (Centre de
Linguistique Theorique et Appliquee).  The symposium is intended to
focus on preference and efficiency in discourse, and to continue
discussion on crucial issues of the MIC theory in connection with
research on pragmatics including the Socio-Cognitive Approach (SCA) to
pragmatics developed at the State University of New York at
Albany. For further information, please go the CELTA website pages:
