Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2006

Meeting Description:

The LSA Summer Meeting has returned! In addition to providing a forum for the presentation of research in any area of linguistics, the meeting will focus on issues of particular relevance and importance to graduate students. While open to everyone, the summer meeting is intended to foster networking and interaction among graduate students, and between graduate students and more senior linguists. This year’s theme will be connections within and across boundaries.

Program: 20-minute papers (with 10 additional minutes allocated for discussion) and a poster session. Abstracts from all areas of linguistics and from all theoretical perspectives are welcome. The meeting will also feature a plenary by the President of the LSA, three plenary workshop sessions, and invited talks by junior level faculty.

Plenary lecture: Sally McConnell-Ginet, President of the LSA

Plenary workshops:

Getting published, getting funded, and getting a job
Issues in professional ethics
Future directions in linguistics

Invited talks: TBA

Abstract submission and review: Abstract submittal forms and review guidelines are available on-line at the LSA website http://www.lsadc.org. All abstracts must be submitted electronically, and will be reviewed by the LSA Program Committee. Abstract submission is restricted to members of the LSA. For information about joining the LSA, visit the LSA website.

A member may submit at most one individual and one joint abstract. In case of joint authorship, one address should be designated for communication with the LSA Program Committee. Although all LSA members will be eligible to submit an abstract, graduate students are especially encouraged to participate, and priority will be given to graduate student submissions.

Funding: The LSA has applied to the NSF for funds to support 30 travel grants that will be available for graduate students whose papers or posters are accepted for presentation at the meeting. These grants are intended to cover travel expenses, housing, and per diem for the duration of the conference. Graduate student members of the LSA are asked to indicate their interest in being considered for a travel grant at the time of abstract submission. Further information on funding is available at http://www.lsadc.org.

Contact information: For further conference information, please contact Prof. Wendy Wilkins (MSU), or the LSA Secretariat.
