This year’s invited speakers are Emmanuel Chemla (ENS), Valentine Hacquard (Maryland), Lauri Karttunen (Stanford), and Sarah Moss (Michigan).

Visit for information. The same website will be updated with practical information regarding hotel reservations by early December; please keep an eye on it if you plan to attend.

The abstract submission deadline is Monday, December 2, 2013.

Abstracts must not exceed two pages in letter-size or A4 paper, including examples and references, with 1 inch margins on all sides and 12 point font size. Linguistic examples should be included where they are discussed, not grouped together on the second page. The abstract should have a clear title but should not identify the author(s). The abstract must be submitted electronically in PDF format. Submissions are limited to 1 individual and 1 joint abstract per author, or 2 joint abstracts per author.

For detailed instructions about EasyChair and the submission process, please visit the conference website: The EasyChair account will be open to submissions from early November.

When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate whether you would like it to be considered (i) for a talk only, or (ii) for a talk or poster. You will also be asked for up to 3 key-words, to aid us in assigning referees. If your work specifically pertains to a language or languages other than English, you may add up to 2 key-words specifying the language(s) or the famili(es).
