Linguistic Field(s): Typology
Call Deadline: 30-Nov-2014
The 11th Biennial Conference of the Association for Linguistic Typology will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1-3 August 2015. It is organized by the Linguistics Department of the University of New Mexico.
2nd Call for Papers:
Abstracts on any topic in typology are invited for oral presentations, posters, and a limited number of theme sessions. Non-members of ALT may submit abstracts but will be expected to join ALT in order to present a paper at the meeting.
Deadline for receipt of abstracts: November 30, 2014 (theme sessions) or January 15, 2015 (individual papers/posters)
Abstracts for individual presentations:
(1) Oral presentation: Each paper will have 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.
(2) Poster: One or more poster sessions will be organized.
(3) Oral/poster: This means you prefer an oral presentation but can also present a poster. If there are more good abstracts than we can accommodate, the Program Committee will schedule some as posters. Choosing ''poster'' or ''oral/poster'' will probably increase your chances of acceptance.
Abstracts are anonymously reviewed; in line with previous meetings, the committee will strive to ensure that selection is rigorous but that the acceptance rate is not too low.
Notification of acceptance: February 28, 2015
A theme session may consist of three to six oral presentations on a common theme (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion). They are proposed non-anonymously by a theme-session convenor. Proposals consist of a short description of the theme (100-200 words) plus a list of planned presentations with names of authors, titles, and short abstracts (100-200 words). Bringing together the potential presenters and their abstracts for a theme session is the sole responsibility of the theme-session convenor and is completely independent of the Program Committee. The deadline for submitting theme sessions is November 30th, and notification is by December 20th. Theme sessions are evaluated and accepted or rejected en bloc.
Submit your abstract via the EasyAbs site of the conference: http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/ALT11-2015
Note: One individual may be involved in a maximum of two abstracts (max. one as sole author), regardless of category (oral, poster, theme-session talk).
Abstract subfields: Abstracts should be classified thematically into one of the following subfields:
- Historical lingusitics
An abstract, including examples, if needed, must be no more than 500 words and no larger than one page of A4 (or US letter), in type no smaller than 10 point and preferably 12 point; margins should be at least 12 mm (0.5 inch) on all sides. Abstracts exceeding the word or page limit or in type smaller than 10 point will be rejected without being evaluated. Please indicate the number of words at the bottom of the abstract. Put this information at the top of your abstract:
– Abstract title
– Abstract category (oral, poster, oral/poster)
– Abstract subfield
Format: If at all possible, please submit your abstract as a pdf.
Name: Give your pdf a filename similar to the title.
Anonymity: Abstracts must be anonymous. Also, please anonymize your pdf by removing identifying information.
