Language Tutorial:

LAGB Education Committee Session:

The LAGB Education Committee will hold a two-hour session on linguistics and education. Further details are available on the Education Committee website:


Call for Papers:

The LAGB welcomes submissions on any topic in the field of linguistics; papers are selected on their (perceived) merits, and not according to their subject matter or theoretical framework. We particularly welcome papers from areas of linguistics that have not been well represented in previous meetings in order to capture the diversity of linguistics research currently undertaken in the UK and beyond.

All abstracts will be blind-peer-reviewed by an international committee of reviewers. Both members and non-members are invited to offer papers for the meeting. The normal length for papers delivered at LAGB meetings is 25 minutes (plus 15 minutes discussion).

The deadline for submissions is 15 April 2013. Notification of acceptance will be made by the end of May 2013.

Call for Themed Sessions:

As well as individual abstracts, we encourage groups of speakers to submit a set of abstracts for a themed session (or panel) on any linguistic subject of their choice. Such groups will normally take up a whole session of the programme (ideal numbers of abstracts for such sessions might be 3, 4, 5 or 6). All the abstracts for such sessions will be considered together, as a group. One contact for the whole session should be provided. Individual papers will be judged on their own merits and may be accepted for presentation in the general session if the themed session is not accepted as a whole.

Abstracts for themed sessions should be submitted together, within a single PDF document, with the same format as specified for individual abstracts. They should be accompanied by a brief synopsis of the merits of the themed session. Please contact the LAGB President, Ad Neeleman (a.neelemanucl.ac.uk) directly if you have any questions about this.

How to Submit an Abstract:

The deadline for abstracts is Monday 15 April 2013. Details of the venue, how to submit an abstract, and how to apply for a conference bursary are available from the conference website:
