SCIL 11
The University of Texas at Austin
May 8-9, 1999

Special Theme: Endangered Languages
Keynote: Jonathan David Bobaljik - Dept. of Linguistics, McGill University

Call For Papers

The 11th annual Student Conference in Linguistics will be held at The
University of Texas at Austin in May 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We invite original, unpublished work in any area of linguistics.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 Abstracts to:

SCIL 11 Abstract Committee
501 Calhoun Hall
The University of Texas at Austin
