Meeting Description:

Conference Theme: Heritage Languages (of the Southwest) in the era of e–learning

LASSO Membership:

Participation in LASSO is a privilege of membership; this means that an individual must be a current member in order to present a paper and be listed in the conference program. You may fill out a membership form at the same time you register for the conference online. Membership includes a subscription to the International Journal of the Linguistic Association of the Southwest. http://clas.ucdenver.edu/lasso/index.html

Submissions by graduate students are welcome, and students are eligible for the Helmut Esau Prize, which includes a $400 cash award.

2nd Call for Papers:

We welcome abstracts for papers in all areas of linguistics. Abstracts for papers or panels on Heritage Languages in the era of e-learning, and particularly those Heritage languages found in the Southwest U.S., are especially welcome. Proposals for complete panels with multiple speakers are also welcome but must fit within the 90 minute time frame of the conference presentations.

Presentation Format:

Presentation time for papers will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts may be in English or Spanish. Presentations should be given in the same language as the abstract. Only one abstract as single author and a second as co-author will be accepted from any one individual.

Abstract Format:

Abstracts should be 250-500 words, single-spaced in 12 point Times New Roman font. Abstracts should summarize the main points and indicate key aspects of the data and methodology. Use of special font items should be kept to a minimum. In general, omit the bibliography. Abstracts will be distributed via the Internet as received. At the beginning of the abstract, write the title of the paper. At the end of the abstract, repeat the title and also list the author's name (if more than one author, list names in the order they should appear in the program), academic affiliation, mailing address, telephone number, cellular phone number, and email. If the first author, who will be point of contact for the submission, will not be available at his/her usual address or e-mail during the summer, provide summer contact information in the cover e-mail.

Abstract Submission:

Abstracts should be submitted via EasyAbs: http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/Lasso2014 a .pdf, .txt, .doc or .odt file. Special font items travel best in a .pdf file. For questions, email LASSO2014sandiegogmail.com. Do not submit abstracts to this email address.

Authors will receive a reply notifying them that their abstracts are under consideration. If such notification has not been received within one week, the abstract did not reach its destination and should be resent. Authors will be notified by late July as to whether their papers have been accepted.

Deadline for abstract/proposal submission is May 1, 2014.
Deadline for panel submission is April 15, 2014.
