 FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE VARIATION IN EUROPE

 ICLaVE 1 (Barcelona 2000)

 Universitat Pompeu Fabra

 June 29-30/July 1, 2000


The International Conference on Language Variation in Europe (ICLaVE)
has been set up as a regular, biennial meeting which aims at
addressing any aspect of linguistic variation observed in languages
spoken in present-day Europe. The idea of setting up this conference
originated in the Coordination Committee of the European Science
Foundation Network on the Convergence and Divergence of Dialects in a
Changing Europe (http://www.esf.org/human/hn/old/DIAL/dial.htm), funded
from 1995 to 1998.

ICLaVE will continue work in this and other areas related to language
variation. The first ICLaVE will take place in Barcelona June 29 - 30/
July 1, 2000, and will be organized by M. Teresa Turell (Universitat
Pompeu Fabra). The scientific program will consist of regular papers
(selected on the basis of abstracts), invited papers and poster
presentations.

Scientific Committee:
Frans Hinskens (U. of Leipzig); Paul Kerswill (U. of Reading);
Maria-Rosa Lloret (U. of Barcelona); Inge Lise Pedersen (U. of
Copenhagen); M. Teresa Turell (U. Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona)); Juan A.
Villena (U. of M�laga).

Local Committee (U. Pompeu Fabra):
Josep M. Fontana, Montserrat Forcadell, Montserrat Gonz�lez, Louise

FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

The Scientific Committee invites abstracts for papers in any area of
language variation in European languages. The abstracts should
indicate clearly whether they are for a regular 30-minute slot for a
Paper (20-minute presentation; 10-minute discussion) or for a Poster,
in which case specified display space and time slot will be offered.

The criteria for abstract selection will be: conceptual and
methodological relevance to the study of language variation,
specifically in European languages; empirical and conceptual
substance; quality of argumentation; originality. The abstracts will
be reviewed anonymously by members of the Scientific Committee during
January and February 2000.

CONFERENCE LANGUAGE

The conference language will be English. Papers should be presented,
and abstracts submitted, in English.
