 | GLOW 2002 |
 | Amsterdam/Utrecht, the Netherlands |
 | April 9 -11 2002 |
 | Workshops on April 7, 8,12 and 13 |

The 25th edition of GLOW will be back in the town where it all
started: the colloquium will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands,
on April 9-11, 2002 (with workshops in Utrecht on April 12 and
13). The theme of the main session will be Linguistic
Microvariation. The programme of the this GLOW Conference will be
somewhat different from previous GLOW colloquia. A first difference
concerns the fact that there will be more phonology in the colloquium
than usual. A parallel session on phonology is planned on the third
day of the conference, in addition to the usual phonology talks in the
main session.

A second difference concerns the fact that the workshops this year are
planned for two days after the colloquium in Utrecht. The following
workshops will be organised:

- The Syntax Discourse Interface (April 12)
- Phonological Language Acquisition (April 12&13)
- Tools in Linguistic Theory (April 7&8)

Finally, we will organise a special lustrum-evening with invited
speakers. Richard Kayne, Alan Prince and Henk van Riemsdijk have
accepted an invitation to present a paper for this occasion on the
evening of Wednesday, April 10.

Also, this year the selection procedure of the papers for the
colloquoium will be slightly different from the standard procedure. We
will ask external specialists to review a number of abstracts. Each
abstract will be reviewed by at least ten linguists. The results of
this procedure will give an ordered set. The fifty abstracts that
receive the highest score will be discussed in a selection committee
consisting of local organizers and representatives of the GLOW Board
in order to determine the final selection of twenty six papers.

Given the fact that around Easter the hotel situation in Amsterdam and
Utrecht is very complicated, we advise people who intend to visit GLOW
next year to make reservations for accomodation as soon as
possible. You can find suggestions for accomodation and other
practical information on our websites:


Deadline for submisssion of abstracts, for the main session and the
workshops, is December 1.

For the main session, ten anonymous copies of the abstract plus a
datasheet providing the title of the paper, and name, affiliation,
address and e-mail address of the author should be sent to: GLOW 2002
Selection Committee Meertens Institute PO Box 94264 1090 CG Amsterdam
