            Since 1984, there has been a highly successful biennial series of International Conferences on Functional Grammar: Amsterdam (1984), Antwerp (1986), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (1988), Copenhagen (1990), Antwerp (1992), York (1994), Córdoba (1996), and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (1998). Each of these conferences has helped advance the theory of Functional grammar and create an ever-growing international community of researchers. It is now time to announce the ninth in this series.


            The Ninth International Conference on Functional Grammar (ICFG9) will be held at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) in Madrid, from 20 to 23 September 2000, and will be organized by the UNED in collaboration with the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM).


            The organizing committee are Ricardo Mairal, Vicky Escandell (UNED), Angela Downing, Joaquín Garrido, Juana Marín-Arrese, Elena Martínez-Caro (UCM), Esperanza Torrego and Jesús de la Villa (UAM).


            The Conference will be held in English and will be devoted to Functional Grammar (FG) as set out by the late Simon Dik (Dik, S. 1997. The Theory of Functional Grammar. Parts I & II. Ed. by K. Hengeveld. Berlin: Mouton de Gruyter). Papers are invited that address matters arising from that book and more generally from the tradition of work in FG.


There will also be a special section devoted to other functional and/or cognitive models and approaches.
