      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
