Call Deadline: 31-Jan-2013

Meeting Description:

The 5th annual meeting of the Illinois Language and Linguistics Society (ILLS) will be held April 5-7, 2013 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. ILLS is a graduate student conference open to all subfields of linguistics. This year's conference will include a poster session and a special session on the topic of 'Minority Languages' in addition to the general presentations.

Invited Speakers:

Zsuzsanna Fagyal (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Carrie Gillon (Arizona State University)
Michael Kenstowicz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
John Rickford (Stanford University)
Ryan Shosted (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Call for Papers:

Deadline for submission is January 31. Equal consideration will be given to papers from all major linguistic subfields, as well as related cross-disciplinary areas. You may submit at most: one single-author abstract and one multi-author abstract, or two multi-author abstracts. For abstracts co-authored with a faculty member, the student should be the primary author and should have carried out the bulk of the research and analysis. In addition, the student will be responsible for the presentation of the paper at the conference.

Abstract Formatting and Submissions:

ILLS requests the submission of abstracts which summarize the main points of the research paper including hypotheses, methodology, and conclusions. Abstracts are to be submitted in PDF format, and should be no more than 500 words in length, including examples and in-text citations. Full references are not necessary. Please use the (Author, Year) format.

No identifying information may be included on the abstract itself. We will be able to identify the authors via the information they provide to LINGUIST List. Abstracts themselves must remain unidentifiable for the review process. Any identifying information (i.e. names) on the abstract PDF itself will be cause for dismissal of the abstract.

1. Go to http://linguistlist.org
2. Click 'Conferences' (on left side)
3. Select 'Easy Abstracts' (under the 'Conferences' menu)

Presentation Information:

Conference presentations will be 20 minutes in length, with 10 minutes provided for questions. Please note that depending on the number and quality of submissions received, we may invite some submissions to present a poster in lieu of a paper. The top 4 submitted student abstracts will be awarded $200 to cover conference travel costs.
