    Since 1984, there has been a highly successful
biennial series of International Conferences on Functional
Grammar: Amsterdam (1984), Antwerp (1986), Vrije
Universiteit Amsterdam (1988), Copenhagen (1990), Antwerp
(1992), York (1994), Córdoba (1996), and Vrije
Universiteit Amsterdam (1998). Each of these conferences
has helped advance the theory of Functional grammar and
create an ever-growing international community of
researchers. It is now time to announce the ninth in this

    The Ninth International Conference on Functional
Grammar (ICFG9) will be held at the Universidad Nacional
de Educación a Distancia (UNED) in Madrid, from 20 to 23
September 2000, and will be organized by the UNED in
collaboration with the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
(UAM) and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM).

    The organizing committee will be: Ricardo Mairal,
Vicky Escandell (UNED), Angela Downing, Joaquín Garrido,
Juana Marín-Arrese, Elena Martínez-Caro (UCM), Esperanza
Torrego and Jesús de la Villa (UAM).

    The Conference will be held in English and will be
devoted to Functional Grammar (FG) as set out by the late
Simon Dik (Dik, S. 1997. The Theory of Functional Grammar.
Parts I & II. Ed. by K. Hengeveld. Berlin: Mouton de
Gruyter). Papers are invited that address matters arising
from that book and more generally from the tradition of
work in FG.

    There will also be a special section devoted to other
functional and/or cognitive models and approaches.
