15TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SOCIETY FOR TEXT AND DISCOURSE
Amsterdam, July 6-9, 2005
Deadline: February 1, 2005
The Society for Text and Discourse will hold its Fifteenth Annual Meeting at the Faculty of Arts, Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from Wednesday through Saturday, July 6-9, 2005. The Society for Text & Discourse is an international society of researchers who investigate all aspects of discourse processing and analysis. The purpose of the society is to consolidate research in discourse processing, to enhance communication among researchers in different disciplines, and contribute to the education and professional development of those in the field or entering the field. Therefore, we invite scholars from various disciplines (e.g., psychology, linguistics, artificial intelligence, education, sociology, anthropology, communications, philosophy and poetics) to attend and participate in the annual meeting.
The specific aim of this conference will be to bring together behavioral scientists with scholars who are traditionally more focused on the structure of language, text, and discourse. One interest that many of these structure-oriented researchers share is their concern with the function, context, and process of language use. We therefore invite proposals for papers and symposia in this general area. The deadline for submitting proposals is February 1, 2005.
We are pleased to announce the following invited speakers have agreed to give plenary talks at the meeting:
Department of English Language and Linguistics
University of Wisconsin--Madison, USA
Department of Psychology
University of Glasgow, UK
Department of Psychology
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, NL
Presentations at the Fifteenth Annual Meeting of the Society for Text and Discourse can be in the form of posters or spoken papers. The deadline for submitting proposals for both presentation formats is February 1, 2005. A Review Committee will review the proposals, and authors will be notified regarding acceptance by the end of March 2005.
