Call for Papers:

The 10th International Conference on the Evolution of Language (Vienna, April 14-17, 2014) invites substantive contributions relating to the evolution of human language. Submissions may be in any relevant discipline, including, but not limited to, anthropology, archeology, artificial life, biology, cognitive science, genetics, linguistics, modeling, paleontology, physiology, primatology, and psychology. Normal standards of academic excellence apply.

Submitted papers should aim to make clear their own substantive claim, relating this to relevant scientific literature, and briefly setting out the method by which the claim is substantiated, the nature of the relevant data, and/or the core of the theoretical argument concerned. Submissions may be theory-based, but empirical studies should not rest on preliminary results.

Submissions can be made (by September 1, 2013) both for podium presentations (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion) and for poster presentations. They are limited to one first-authored podium presentation and one first-authored poster per person. There is no limit on second authored submissions. When submitting, please indicate whether your submission is to be considered for inclusion as a talk, as a poster, or as either of the two.

For both podium and poster presentations, there are two possible types of submission: (a) Full papers, which can have a length of between 6 and 8 pages, and (b) Abstracts, which can be up to 2 pages long.

All accepted submissions will be published in a bound proceedings volume to appear before the start of the conference.

For details concerning the submission process and submission formats go to the conference site (http://vienna.evolang.org).

Call for Workshop Proposals:

In addition to the general session, EVOLANG X will be able to host up to four thematically focused half-day workshops to be held between 09:00 and 13:45 on April 14 (i.e. accommodating 8 half-hour slots, 15 minutes for an introduction, and 30 minutes for a coffee break).

Workshop proposals should be sent to the local organizers (evolangunivie.ac.at) by April 30, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be given by May 20, 2013. The responsibility for the detailed scheduling of the workshops and for the quality of workshop contributions will rest with workshop convenors.

For details concerning the submission of workshop proposals go to the conference site (http://vienna.evolang.org).
