            The 5th International Conference on
         Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution

         S. Miguel, Azores, September 23 - 24, 2004

Following the success of the previous international colloquia
on Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution at Lancaster
in 1996, 1998 and 2000, and at Lisbon in 2002, the next colloquium
in the series will be held in Furnas, S. Miguel island, Azores,
Portugal, in 2004, on the 23-24th September.

The programme of DAARC2004 includes 2 invited talks, by Tony
Sanford and Amit Bagga, and 30 contributed presentations,
which reflect the most recent advances of the work on anaphora,
ranging from theoretical linguistic approaches through
psycholinguistic and cognitive work to computational modelling
of anaphor resolution.

Detailed information on the venue, accommodation and registration
can be found at: http://daarc2003.di.fc.ul.pt . July 15 is the 
deadline for registration with reduced fees.
