Call For Papers

Workshops, posters and individual papers are invited on any topic
belonging to the field of linguistics. One person may submit a single-
authored paper, a single-authored paper and a co-authored one (not as
first author) or two co-authored papers (only one as first author). Note that
keynote papers within workshops count as ordinary papers. Presentations
will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes question time.

All abstracts have to be registered and sent to the Scientific Committee by
15 January 2011.

General Session - Workshops
General session papers can deal with any topic in linguistics. Workshop
papers take into account the topic of the workshop proposal, and are
usually pre-selected by the workshop convenors before they are submitted
to the scientific committee (SC). The acceptance of a paper depends on the
quality of the abstract.

Abstracts will be read by three referees. Abstracts submitted to the general
session and to the poster session will be evaluated by three members of the
SC. Workshop papers receive two evaluations by SC members and one by
the convenors. The threshold for acceptance is the same for general
session, poster and workshop abstracts. The acceptance rate of the
previous conferences was 60% for the general session.

As of SLE 2009 more than half of the presentations have taken place within
the framework of thematic workshops. Workshop proposals should contain:

(i) A 1000 word description of the topic (including the research questions to
be addressed) and
(ii) a provisional list of workshop participants and a short description of
their topics.

We encourage workshop convenors to distribute an open call for papers on
the LinguistList (announce your cfp as a session of SLE 2011) and other
fora. The deadline for the submission of workshop proposals is 15
November 2010. Workshop proposals will be evaluated and ranked by the
SLE Scientific Committee. Notification of acceptance will be given by 15
December 2010. After a workshop proposal has been accepted, the
convenors will be requested to invite their participants to submit their full
abstracts by 15 January 2011.

Since we want conference participants to be able to attend individual
workshop presentations, SLE workshops have to be compatible with the
main conference schedule. This means that the format of the workshops
must be organized around 30 minute presentations (20 min. + 10 min.
discussion). Workshops can contain 10 or 15 slots (corresponding to 1 or
1.5 days); each workshop ideally comprises:

1. An introductory paper by the convenor(s) or by a key-note speaker,
which summarizes previous research, specifies the approach(es) to be
taken and sets the scope of the papers to be presented.
2. Eight papers (1 day) or thirteen papers (1.5 day).
3. A slot for final discussion on the topics covered by the papers,
methodological issues and questions for future research.

Further details can be discussed with the SLE Conference Manager

The next SLE meeting will hold a poster session of an hour for both senior
and junior researchers. Posters and oral presentations will be evaluated
according to the same quality standards. In order to foster interaction, all
other sessions will be suspended during the poster session.

The maximum size of the poster is 1.10 m x 1 m.

Guidelines for Submission

Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (exclusive of references) and
should clearly state research questions, approach, method, data and
(expected) results. The abstract will also contain three to five key words
specifying the (sub)field, the topic and the approach.

The deadline for all abstracts (for the general session, the poster session
and the workshops) is 15 January 2011. Notification of acceptance will be
given by 31 March 2011.

Submit your title through the Submit Abstract form of our website, where you
can upload your abstract as an attachment. The abstract should not
mention the presenter(s) nor their affiliations or addresses. Abstracts are
preferably in Word or .RTF format; if your abstract contains special symbols,
please include a pdf version as well.

Prize for the Best Presentation and the Best Poster

There will be a prize for the best oral presentation by a PhD student, a prize
for the best oral presentation by a postdoc and a prize for the best poster.

For current purposes, PhD-students are students that have not completed
their PhD before the conference. Postdocs have completed their PhD not
earlier than January 2008. A nominated paper may be co-authored; in such
a case the nominee will be the first author.

Applicants are invited to mark the button referring to the prize when they
register their abstract. On the basis of the ranking of the abstracts, the
Scientific Committee will set up an internal shortlist with nominees for the

Members of the Editorial Board of Folia Linguistica (Historica) and the
Scientific Committee will decide who will be awarded the first prize in each
category, which consists of 500 euros and the 2nd and 3rd prize, which is a
three-year SLE membership.


Registration will start from 1 April 2011 onwards. SLE 2011 keeps the SLE
2010 conference fees (see our website).
