The Societas Linguistica Europaea and The University of Naples Federico II would like to invite you to submit papers and posters to the conference.

Submission Guidelines: Workshop Papers, General Session Papers, and Posters:

The deadline for all abstracts is 15 January 2016. Notification of acceptance will be given by 31 March 2016.

Abstracts are submitted via Easychair ( Abstracts should clearly state research questions, approach, method, data and (expected) results. They should not contain the names of the presenters, nor their affiliations or addresses, or any other information that may reveal their authorship. They should not exceed 500 words (exc. references). Abstracts should have the same title as the entry submitted via Easychair. Whereas general session papers can deal with any topic in linguistics, workshop papers should take into account the topic of the workshop proposal, and are usually pre-selected by the workshop convenors. If the abstract is by a keynote speaker at a workshop, please insert “keynote paper” in your abstract so that the paper can be reviewed as an introductory paper to a workshop. The list of workshops can be found on the conference website:

Submitting Multiple Papers:

One person may submit a single-authored abstract, a single-authored abstract and a co-authored one (not as first author), or two co-authored abstracts (only one as first author). Presentations will last 20 minutes, allowing 10 minutes for discussion and room changes.

Presenting a Poster:

The SLE 2016 meetings will have one poster session for both senior and junior researchers. In order to foster interaction, all other sessions will be suspended during the poster session. Posters may remain available during the rest of the conference. The maximum size of the poster is 1.10 m (vertical) x 1 m (horizontal).

Prize for the Best Presentation and the Best Poster:

There will be a prize for the best oral presentation by a PhD student, a prize for the best oral presentation by a postdoc and a prize for the best poster.
