Meeting Description:

ACAL deals with all aspects of the linguistics of African languages, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, information structure, sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, areal linguistics, and language planning and policy. The 2015 ACAL conference accepts both workshop proposals and general session abstracts.

Call for Papers:

In addition to general-session abstracts, we encourage ACAL members to consider organizing topic-specific workshops. Workshop organizers should submit a one-page workshop description along with a list of paper titles and presenters. The deadline for the submission of workshop proposals is November 3, with notification of acceptance/rejection for the workshop given to the workshop organizers by November 17. Once accepted, the workshop organizers will be requested to invite their participants to submit their full abstracts by December 8. These full abstracts will be evaluated individually by the local UO organizing committee.


All abstracts should be written in English with glosses or translations for words or examples in any other language. Each abstract, including the title and any data in figures or tables, should not exceed 500 words. The 500-word abstract should be single-spaced and in a font no smaller than 11 point. Outside the body of the abstract, please indicate session the paper is being submitted to (general session, poster session, or name of workshop).

The deadline for both general-session abstracts and individual workshop abstracts is December 8, with notification of acceptance by mid-January, 2015.

Workshop proposals and abstract submissions should be sent by email to, with the word ''Abstract'' or ''Workshop'' and your last name in the subject line. Submissions should be in both PDF format, and Microsoft Word formats (e.g. .DOC, .DOCX) or .rtf. In the body of the email message please include the following information:

- Full Name
- Affiliation
