Meeting Description:

Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Grant Goodall. Dr. Goodall received his graduate training from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He is currently Professor of Linguistics at UCSD. Goodall's primary area of specialty is natural language syntax, with an established interest in applying linguistic research to the public realm, especially with regards to language teaching policy and practice. His current research projects include Wh-movement and inversion phenomena, processing effects in syntax, and experimental methods for studying syntax. Before joining the faculty at UCSD, he worked at the University of Texas at El Paso and held visiting appointments at the Université de Genève (Switzerland) and the Universidad Nacional del Comahue (Argentina).

The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is located in Arlington, Texas, situated between Dallas and Fort Worth. Arlington is easily accessible by two major airports: DFW and Love Field. Discounted hotels in Arlington are available for UTA events, and some limited space will be available to stay with students on a first come, first serve basis.

Call for Papers:

Papers for this conference are invited in all areas of linguistics, (including TESOL), and especially in our conference topic: What is Experimental Syntax Good for?

Students from any educational institution are strongly encouraged to submit their research and share insights they have discovered in the field. Presenters can choose between oral and poster presentations. Oral presentations will last 20 minutes with 5 minutes for discussion and questions. An allotment of time will be set aside for poster presentations and discussion. This is a great opportunity to develop professional skills. The best presentations will be awarded the Yumi Nakamura Memorial Prize in Linguistics (up to a total of $1000.00 USD in prize money). Poster and oral presentations are considered, accepted, and judged as equal counterparts.

The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended until Monday, 29 November, 2010. Notifications of acceptance will be distributed by mid-December, 2010. Abstracts should be written on a single page (500 words or less) in Times New Roman or a similar font, 12 point, with one additional page for graphs and/or references. Electronic submissions are preferred and the text of the e- mail (or title page) should include:

-Your name
-Address, phone number, e-mail address
-Title of paper, and
-Type of presentation: oral or poster
Please do not include your name on the abstract pages.

Abstracts should be sent as an attachment in MS Word format to LinguaUTAgmail.com. Please do not submit using an .html or PDF format, as we will need to format the abstract for inclusion in the abstract booklet. If you use fonts or symbols that are unusual, please submit both MS Word and PDF, and we will make sure the correct symbols appear. Late submissions will not be accepted.
