Meeting Description:

We are proud to announce the 2nd Central European Conference in Linguistics for postgraduate Students (CECIL'S 2), to be held on 24-25 August 2012 at Peter Pazmany Catholic University (PPCU), Hungary.

The two-day conference aims to bring together postgraduate students in linguistics from a wide range of research areas, providing an interdisciplinary forum for students to present and discuss their work in an intellectually stimulating and informal setting.

The event will take place at the picturesque campus of PPCU just outside Budapest, and is hosted by the Department of Theoretical Linguistics of PPCU.

Selected papers from the conference will be published in a peer-reviewed online publication.

We are pleased to be able to offer a number of travel bursaries worth up to EUR 250 each to accepted student presenters. Preference will be given to students coming from the Eastern Central European countries, but students from other countries are also encouraged to apply. (The conditions for application will be made available on the conference website.)

We invite PhD and MA students to submit anonymous abstracts for 35-minute (25+10) talks and for poster presentations in any field of modern linguistics, especially on topics in syntax, morphology, phonology (including prosody), formal semantics and pragmatics (including information structure), language acquisition, psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics, as well as on their interfaces and interactions. Both theoretical and experimental papers are solicited, and synchronic and diachronic approaches are equally welcome.
