Final Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for the GLOW 35 Colloquium (Topic: 'Context in Grammar') as well as for the four associated workshops.

For colloquium/workshop descriptions, visit our website:


Abstract Format:

Abstracts (both for oral presentations and posters) must not exceed two pages in length (preferably A4, but letter-sized is also acceptable). This includes data and references. Submissions must follow the following guidelines:

- 2.5 cm (1 inch) margins on all four sides. On A4 paper, these margins produce a 160mm x 247mm text box. Submitters whose computers are set up for other paper sizes should adjust their margins accordingly to produce a text box of this size. This is especially important for the printing of the Spring Newsletter.
- Font no smaller than 12pt, with single line spacing; no more than 50 lines of text per page, including examples.
- Examples must be integrated throughout the text of the abstract, rather than collected at the end.
- Nothing in the abstract, the title, or the name of the document should identify the author(s).
- At most two submissions total (including both colloquium and workshops) per author, at most one of which can be single-authored. The same abstract may not be submitted to both the colloquium and a workshop.
- Only submissions in .pdf format will be accepted.

Talk/Poster Format:

Abstracts are invited for slots for oral presentations for 45 minutes + 15 minutes of discussion. In addition, GLOW 35 offers two poster sessions. When submitting the abstract, the author(s) should indicate whether they wish to be considered for oral presentation only or would also be willing to present a poster. Financial reimbursement is limited to oral presentations.


All abstracts must be submitted via:
