This workshop was the third in a series of meetings that aim at the advancement of the study of writing systems and the skills which they require (writing, reading), and at a better communication and cooperation between researchers from different fields of writing research, such as theoretical and compu- tational linguistics, psycholinguistics, language acquisition and educa- tion. Keynote speakers at the workshop were Charles Perfetti and Richard Venezky. We deeply regret that Richard Venezky passed away one year later, at the age of 66. He was an authority on research into literacy and spelling, and a very nice person. The main organizers of the Cologne meeting were Martin Neef (University of Brunswick) and Beatrice Primus (University of Cologne), which we gratefully acknowl- edge.
