5th Discourse Anaphora and
Anaphor Resolution Colloquium

São Miguel (Azores), Portugal, September 23-24, 2004
hosted by the University of Azores


Call for Papers

Following the success of the previous international colloquia on Discourse Anaphora and Anaphor Resolution at Lancaster in 1996, 1998 and 2000, and Lisbon in 2002, the next colloquium in the series will take place in Azores in 2004.
