>We cordially invite you to participate in the 6th International
>Conference of the International Society for Italian Linguistics
>and Philology (SILFI), which following Siena (1988), Cambridge
>(1991), Perugia (1994), Madrid (1996), and Catania (1998) will
>be held in Duisburg, from June 28th to July 2nd 2000.
> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
>SILFI, the sole international society of Italian Linguistics and
>Philology was founded at a very informal level in early Sep-
>tember, 1985, during the 7th International Conference on
>Historical Linguistics, held at Pavia. It was founded in order
>to promote the study of Italian linguistics and philology and to
>bring together all those working in Italian studies in Italy and all
>over the world.
>The congresses of SILFI are open to all scholars working in the
>vast field of Italian linguistics and philology. At the General Meeting,
>the right to vote is, however, reserved to official members of SILFI.
>SILFI currently has about 200 members. Membership fees cover the
>two years in between two congresses. They can also be paid during
>the congress
>Membership fees for the period 2000-2002 are:
>Students & PhD-students: 25,00 DM (ca. Euro 12,50)
>others: 40,00 DM (ca. Euro 20,00)
>Exchange rate: 1 EURO = ca. 2 DM
> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
>In order to allow as many scholars of Italian linguistics and philology
>to participate and exchange research results, research in progress, ex-
>periences and ideas, congresses of SILFI are generally open to all
>topics of Italian linguistics and philology. Tradition has it, however,
>that each time one section of the congress is reserved in advance for
>a specific topic.
>Following the decision of the last congress held in Catania, the topic
>of this section at the congress in Duisburg will be:
> «L'italiano parlato / Spoken Italian»
>As the motto of the congress in Duisburg «Tradition & Innovation»
>indicates, the aim of the congress is to bring together the wealth of know-
>ledge gained by using traditional resources and methodolgy with projects
>which either try to exploit the possibilities offered by the electronic media
>for research and teaching or try to find new ways of integrating scientific
>studies with society. The topic «Spoken Italian» seems to be an excellent
>starting point for such an endeavour.
