The 11th annual Student Conference in Linguistics will be held at The
University of Texas at Austin May 8-9, 1999. SCIL is a student-run
conference which aims to bring together graduate students from around the
world to present their research and build connections with other students.
The proceedings are published in the MIT Working Papers in Linguistics.

We invite original, unpublished work in any area of linguistics. We would
particularly like to encourage submissions which focus on endangered or
underdescribed languages, in keeping with the conference theme.

Guidelines for Submission:

Please submit ten copies of a one-page, 500-word, anonymous abstract for a
twenty-minute paper (optionally, one additional page for data and/or
references may be appended), along with a 3" by 5" card with:

 (1) your name,
 (2) your affiliation,
 (3) your address, phone number, and e-mail address,
 (4) the title of the paper, and
 (5) an indication of which subdivision of linguistics best describes the
topic (e.g., Phonetics, Phonology, Syntax, Semantics, Psycholinguistics,
Anthropological Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Sociolinguistics,
etc.)

The abstract should be as specific as possible, and it should clearly
indicate the data covered, outline the arguments presented, and include any
broader implications of the work.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 5:00 PM, February 15, 1999. Send
