Abstract Submission
This is a summary - please consult the website for full details:

- We are running a new system for abstract submission this year, using the
Linguist List's EasyAbstracts system.
- There is no obligatory conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on anything.
- Abstracts should be uploaded to the 17mfm's page on the EasyAbstracts site by
2nd March 2009: http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/17mfm
- Abstracts should be no longer than one side of A4, with 2.5cm or one inch
margins, single-spaced, with a font size no smaller than 12, and with normal

your name and affiliation on it if your abstract is selected for presentation.
All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by members of the organising
committee and advisory board.
- You should use one of these formats for your abstract: pdf, Word, or plain
text. If you need to use a phonetic font in your abstract, either embed it in a
pdf file, or use the Doulos SIL font
- Full papers will last around 25 minutes with around 5 minutes for questions,
and there will be a high-profile poster session lasting one and a half hours.
When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate whether you would
prefer to present your work as an oral paper or a poster paper, or whether you
would be prepared to present it in either form.
- If you need technical equipment for your talk you will need to let the
organisers know if your abstract is selected for presentation. We will do our
best to provide it, although this cannot be guaranteed.
- We aim to finalise the programme, and to contact abstract-senders by around
the early April, and we will contact those who have sent abstracts as soon as
the decisions have been made.
