Linguistic Sub-field: Linguistic Theories 
Call Deadline: 01-Jul-2004 

Meeting Description:

The Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics (CASTL) at
the University of Tromsoe, Norway, is pleased to host the 13th annual
Conference of the Student Organization of Linguistics in Europe, 2-4
December 2004.

ConSOLE, organised by a different European university every year,
provides a forum for students of linguistics from all over the world
to present independent research.

Abstracts are invited from all areas of theoretical linguistics
including (but not limited to) phonology, morphology, syntax,
semantics and language acquisition. Submissions from other areas of
linguistics will also be considered provided that the theoretical
significance of the paper is clearly demonstrated in the abstract.

 ConSOLE XIII will feature a special session on I-Phonology. We invite
papers discussing the nature of phonological primes, the role of
contrast in phonological systems, the division of labour between
representation and derivation/constraint evaluation, the status of
phonetic grounding in phonological theory, and the relation between
phonology and higher linguistic levels.

 Accepted papers are allotted 30 minutes for presentation plus 10
minutes for discussion. For detailed submission guidelines, visit .

We are happy to announce that the following linguists have accepted
our invitation to ConSOLE XIII:

Elan Dresher (Toronto)
Gillian Ramchand (Tromsoe)
Charles Reiss (Concordia)
Michal Starke (Tromsoe)

*About Tromsoe*
The conference will take place in the world's northernmost university
town, situated far above the Arctic Circle. Thanks to the Gulf Stream,
however, winter temperatures are usually between +5 and -5 C. The town
is famous for its spectacular Northern Lights and lively party scene,
and offers great opportunities for downhill and cross-country
skiing. Moreover, as the sun in Tromsoe sets in late November and does
not come up until late January, participants will also be able to
experience a bite-sized version of polar night!

*Financial support*
As is customary for ConSOLE, accommodation will be provided (free) for
4 nights for those presenting at the conference. Given Tromsoe's
remote location, ConSOLE XIII offers travel support for presenters
without sufficient funds, to be evaluated on a case-by-case
basis. Presenters will also be exempt form any conference fees.

*Important dates*
Deadline for abstracts: July 1st
Notification of acceptance: September 15th
Final programme: October 1st
Conference: December 2-4
