The Societas Linguistica Europaea (SLE) and the University of Zurich are pleased to announce the “50th Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europaea (SLE 2017)”, to be held in Zurich, 10 - 13 September 2017, and would like to invite you to submit papers and posters for the conference.

SLE meetings provide a forum for high-quality linguistic research from all (sub)domains of linguistics. The upcoming edition of the SLE meeting will also host a round table of experts to discuss topics of special linguistic interest. The SLE 2017 round table bears the title “Saussure and linguistics in the 20th and 21st centuries”.

The deadline for all abstracts is 15 January 2017. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be by 31 March 2017.

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

The deadline for all abstracts is 15 January 2017. Notification of acceptance will be given by 31 March 2017.

Abstracts are submitted via Easychair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sle2017). Some guidelines about how to submit your paper can be found at http://sle2017.eu/submission-guidelines.

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 (excluding 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. A list of workshops will be found on the conference webpage after notification of workshop rejection / acceptance (deadline 15 December).


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 5 min. for discussion, 5 min. for speaker and changes.

Further details can be found on the conference website: http://sle2017.eu/.
