We are delighted to offer three options for participating at GLAC in 2016:

- Thematic colloquia panels consisting of 3 papers, each 30 minutes (20 minute talk, 10 minute question period)
- Posters presenting research

Papers, colloquia and posters may be on any linguistic or philological aspect of any historical or modern Germanic language or dialect, including English (to the Early Modern period) and the extraterritorial varieties. Papers from the full range of linguistic and philological subfields, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, stylistics, metrics, language acquisition, contact, and change, as well as differing theoretical perspectives, are welcome. All abstracts will undergo anonymous review.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF format to EasyAbs at Abstracts should be a maximum of one single-spaced page in length, and be written in a standard 12-point font. The page should be headed only by the title of the paper/poster, and the abstract should contain no self-identification. Follow the directions on the EasyAbs website to submit the author’s name, institutional affiliation (if any), title of the paper, and e-mail address. A proposal for a three-paper thematic colloquium consists of three paper proposals (on three pages) submitted as a unit.

We have also opened early registration: Since hotel rooms in Reykjavík in May tend to fill up early, we suggest registering as soon as possible.

For any questions, please contact the organizing team at

Plenary speakers: Höskuldur Thráinsson (University of Iceland) and Kristján Árnason (University of Iceland).
