The University of Cyprus is hosting the 4th International Conference on Language Variation in Europe (ICLaVE 2007) from 17 to 19 June 2007 in Nicosia, Cyprus.
ICLaVE is one of the most important conferences for research in the area of language variation in Europe. It aims to bring together specialists in European languages/languages spoken in Europe with the purpose of discussing methodological and theoretical issues in the study of language variation and change. Scholars in any area of linguistics, such as historical linguistics, psycholinguistics, dialectology, sociolinguistics etc., are invited to submit proposals for a poster or paper presentation or a workshop.
We invite abstracts for paper (20-minute presentation + 10-minute discussion) and poster presentations in all areas of language variation in European languages and languages spoken in Europe.
Participants wishing to present a paper or a poster should send an anonymous copy with the title of their paper/poster and an abstract of 350 words maximum, including references. Please send your contact information (name, affiliation and a contact address) in a separate file, and clearly state which kind of presentation you prefer.

In their proposal, workshop organizers should briefly describe the workshop topic and give the names, affiliation and e-mail addresses of presenters, as well as the abstracts of individual papers.
