Call for Papers:
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.
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 conveners. 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.
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 prizes.
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).
