Subject: ACH/ALLC '91 update

underway. The conference host is Arizona State University,
located in Tempe, Arizona. Conference dates are March 17-
The official registration packet and preliminary program
will be distributed in January. This preliminary
information is to help you in planning the conference:
The program committee has received a record number of
submissions, and by all accounts the quality of these
abstracts is excellent. The selection of papers should be
completed in the next few weeks.
Featured speakers for the conference include Martin Kay,
Ralph Griswold and Helen Aguerra.
There will be a software fair and poster sessions, and the
vendor exhibit, which will feature over 100 exhibitors.
A dormitory has been reserved for ACH/ALLC '91 registrants
with fees of about $15.00/day. The number of rooms is
limited, however, and you may be required to share a room.
If you want to secure a place in this dorm, you will need to
prepay directly to the ACH/ALLC '91 registration office.
Details will be sent with the registration packet.
There are also two commercial hotels in which rooms have
been reserved for the conference, one with rooms at
$50.00/day and the other which charges about $80.00/day.
Both of these hotels allow up to four persons in a room (at
$10.00 extra per person), and have airport shuttle service,
restaurants, etc. All locations are about equally distant
from the conference site.
Activities will begin on Sunday, March 17th, in the late
afternoon and continue until Thursday, March 21st, at noon.
There will be recreational activities earlier on Sunday for
those who arrive early.
If you are traveling from any distance, it is generally
cheaper to travel via Los Angeles International.
A conference car rental package will be included in the
registration packet, although an automobile will not really
be necessary for the conference; you will be able to walk to
all conference activities. A taxi to the airport costs only
An optional overnight trip to the Grand Canyon is being
planned for Thursday (returning mid-afternoon Friday), as
well as shorter river runs and museum tours.
There are many other recreational activities possible in
Arizona in March, including golf, swimming, major league
baseball spring training, and the like.
Others may wish to reserve time for an independent trip to
the Petrified Forest or one of many archeological sites.
The conference registration fee is $90.00. ACH and ALLC
members will receive a discount of $15.00, as will graduate
students and independent scholars. There will also be an
early registration discount of $15.00 (February 1st).

The Program Committee is very excited about how the
conference is shaping up; please make every effort to be a
part of ACH/ALLC '91!
