The leitmotif of the 43rd PLM will be 'Theory and evidence in the study of language'. Proposals of papers for both oral and poster sessions related to this main theme, as well as to other fields of modern linguistics, are invited.

Each paper in the oral session will be given 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion. Poster sessions will be an integral part of the conference programme. The language of the conference is English. All regular submissions will be reviewed by our International Advisory Board.

We also invite abstracts for the following thematic sessions:

- On the development of extraterritorial varieties: Migrants, women, and other providers of 'bad data'
- Corpus approaches to (lexical and grammatical) semantics
- Theory and evidence in the study of phonotactics
- Multimodality in interpersonal communication: Empirical evidence and theoretical explanation
- Theory and evidence in language evolution research

There will also be a satellite session 'From dawn to twilight: Potential origins and current developments of the Celtic languages'.

The number of talks that can be accepted for these sessions is limited due to time constraints. However, the poster sessions are not limited and poster presentations may be offered instead. Please visit the conference website for detailed descriptions of thematic sessions and submission instructions (http://ifa.amu.edu.pl/plm/2012/PLM2012_Thematic_sessions).
