Meeting Description:

Europe's premier international conference on language in society, will be hosted by the University of Limerick, Ireland, in July 2006. The Sociolinguistics Symposia were begun in the 1970s by a group of sociolinguists who saw the need for a forum to discuss research findings and to debate theoretical and methodological issues concerning language in society. The symposium has since grown into a large, international conference, typically attracting about 500 participants. The plenary speakers will be:

Mercedes Bengoechea (Alcalá de Henares)
Jeff Kallen (Dublin)
Stephen May (Waikato)
Deborah Tannen (Georgetown)
Peter Trudgill (Fribourg)

The SS16 Organising Committee welcomes papers on any aspect of sociolinguistics. Proposals related to the conference theme ''New Perspectives on Sociolinguistic Change, Conflict and Accommodation'' are particularly welcome. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by a panel of reviewers and will be accepted on the basis of their scientific merit. Three categories of proposal will be considered: (i) themed panel; (ii) poster; (iii) paper. However, with respect to (ii) and (iii), the Committee reserves the right to place contributions in either category in consultation with the reviewers.

Each author may submit no more than one individual and one co-authored abstract.

Deadline for paper and poster proposals: 30 SEPTEMBER 2005

Notification of paper and poster acceptance/rejection: 16 DECEMBER 2005
