Meeting Description:

Semantics Workshop of the American Midwest and Prairies (SWAMP) 2011 is a student-led conference designed primarily to provide an opportunity for graduate students to present original work, collaborate with those from other departments and universities, and hear from leaders within the field of semantics. SWAMP presentations are focused on natural language semantics and related areas such as syntax-semantics interface, pragmatics, philosophy of language, computer science, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and cognitive psychology.

We would like to announce that SWAMP has 2 invited speakers:

Elizabeth Smith (Northwestern University)
Craige Roberts (The Ohio State University)

Your SWAMP 2011 Organizing Committee:

Murat Yasavul, Andrew Plummer, Gregory Kierstead, and Jefferson Barlew

Call for Papers:

Due to its overlap with the start of the fall semester at many schools, the deadline for the submission of abstracts for SWAMP 2011 has been extended until 15 September 2011.

We welcome work that is sufficiently developed for public presentation, but that has not already been submitted for publication or presented at a major conference. Presentations will be 30 minutes long, with 10-15 minutes for questions, depending on the number of participants. We invite presentations of new and original research in semantics and related areas, including (but not limited to) the syntax-semantics interface, pragmatics, philosophy of language, computer science, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and cognitive psychology.

To facilitate the goals of this meeting and keep it informally centered on graduate work, we ask each participant university to submit one to two abstracts apiece. Decide among yourselves whose work you would like to submit. Once decided, please submit a short abstract (no more than 500 words) with a title and affiliation(s). Our hope is that everyone who wants to present will have an opportunity to do so, but if time constraints make this impossible, then talks will be selected based on the quality and originality of the work, degree of completeness, and the areas of research represented at the workshop. In addition, although both faculty and students are encouraged to participate, student presentations will be given priority, all other things being equal.

Please email a pdf version of your abstract to gwkling.osu.edu with subject heading 'SWAMP 2011 submission.' Please include author name(s), affiliation(s) and primary email address(es) in the body of the email.
