Meeting Description:

The 13th International Conference of the Association for Linguistic Typology will be held at the University of Pavia, Italy, on 4-6 September (Wednesday-Friday), 2019. Abstracts on any topic in typology will be invited for oral presentations, posters, and a limited number of theme sessions.

Call for Papers:

Abstract submission for the general session opens around the end of November, and more detailed information will be provided in the second circular. At this time, we would like to invite submissions for theme session proposals.

Theme sessions will consist of up to seven oral presentations on a common theme. They are proposed by a theme-session convenor. Proposals should consist of a maximally 500-word description plus a preliminary list of up to six potential authors (with titles) who have expressed serious interest in participating. If accepted, a theme session will be listed in the final call for abstracts (end of November 2018), so that scholars not initially contacted by the convenor have a chance to participate.
Abstracts submitted to a theme session will be evaluated by the Program Committee. There may be up to five theme sessions.

Theme session proposals should be sent to

Deadline for receipt of theme session proposals: 15 November 2018
