Abstract submission

The abstract submission deadline has passed. The following information is for reference only.

For abstract submission, please use the Linguist List EasyAbs service via this link.
The abstract should be:
  • A short summary of the intended presentation, capturing the central idea, methods of research and the (possibly tentative) key conclusions, also citing any relevant previous work or theoretical background of the field
  • Limited to 4000 characters (including spaces) in length in total, including references
  • Anonymous: the abstract itself should hold no reference to the author or their affiliation (please also check your file's attributes)
  • in PDF format
At most one single-authored and one joint abstract per participant will be considered. Talks will be 20 minutes in length, followed by 10 minutes of discussion time. Please consider the interdisciplinarity of the  event: not all of the audience may be familiar with very specific terminology. The working language of the conference is English. If your abstract (and presentation) contains examples from other languages, please translate (and if relevant, gloss) them.
The selection of speakers from the abstract pool will be made on a competitive basis, giving priority to original and generally interesting topics. The evaluation process is anonymous, and as such, the affiliation and academic rank of the authors will not be considered. 

The abstract submission deadline is the 8th 22nd of February. Notifications of acceptance will be sent in early March. It will be possible to revise one's (accepted) abstract prior to the conference.
If you are unsure how to approach the questions posed in the call, take a look at the FAQ for some ideas.
