15th POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE IN LINGUISTICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER

Reminder - Call for Papers

Dear Postgraduates,

In March 1992 the University of Manchester hosted its first Postgraduate Linguistics Conference. Since then, this annual event has gained popularity and it now draws participants from across the world to exchange ideas in a relaxed but stimulating environment. The aim of the conference is to bring together postgraduates from within the various areas of the discipline for them to present current research to their peers. We hope the day will be rewarding for all, both in learning and establishing new contacts.

The PG Conference will be held at the University of Manchester on Friday 3rd March 2006, from 9.00am to 6.00pm in the Roscoe Building (Rooms 3.3 and 3.4.). We are pleased to announce that Bas Aarts, Professor of English Linguistics in the Department of English Language and Literature at University College London and the Director of the Survey of English Usage (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/~ucledba/), will give the plenary talk from 14.00pm to 15.00pm in the Mansfield Cooper Building, Room G.19.
(Check the website http://www.manchester.ac.uk/visitors/travel/ for maps and directions)

Any postgraduate student (MA or PhD) is very welcome to submit an abstract on any topic related to linguistics.

Papers will be 20 minutes in length plus 10 minutes discussion. Parallel sessions will allow twenty papers to be given.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided during the day (payment included in the registration fee), and an informal conference dinner in the evening will also be organised for all those interested. Suggestions for overnight accommodation can be provided on request.

Please send abstracts by email in Word or PDF version to the conference email address pgconference2006hotmail.co.uk by the 10th of January 2006. They should have a maximum of 300 words (excluding references). If you are using any special font, please attach them to the document and let us know. Together with the abstract, you should provide the following information: your name, your affiliation (department and university), your email address (the one you check regularly), the title of the paper, and the area of research (e.g. syntax, phonetics, psycholinguistics, etc.).
The selected abstracts will be informed in late January. The papers presented will be published in our annual series of proceedings (PLUM).
