We are pleased to announce the First Newcastle Postgraduate Conference in
Theoretical and Applied Linguistics in association with the University of
Durham, sponsored by the AHRC.

The success of the Durham Postgraduate Linguistics Conference over the past
decade, and the recent amalgamation of Durham's linguistics department with
Newcastle University's School of English, has led to the creation of a new
conference based in Newcastle. This conference is designed to give linguistics
postgraduates an opportunity to present and discuss their research in an
informal and intellectually stimulating setting.

Professor Bernard Comrie (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary
Anthropology) and Professor Vivian Cook (University of Newcastle upon Tyne) will
be giving guest lectures at this year's conference. Professor Comrie's talk will
be on Language and Genes. Professor Cook's talk title is to be confirmed.

We invite postgraduate students to submit abstracts for oral and poster
presentations on ANY area of linguistics, theoretical or applied (see below for
abstract submission guidelines).

KEY DATES:
The deadline for submission of abstracts has been EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, 24TH
MARCH. The conference itself takes place at Newcastle University on Friday, 23rd
June.


PRESENTATION GUIDELINES
Accepted abstracts will be allotted 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes
for discussion. There will be two poster sessions on the day of the conference,
but posters will be on display all day. Speakers will also be invited to submit
their paper for publication in the Newcastle & Durham Working Papers in Linguistics.
