Call for Papers:

Submissions from young researchers (35 years old and younger) working in any area of linguistic typology, grammar and phonology are welcome. Each talk selected for presentation will be allotted 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The official languages of the conference are Russian and English, and abstracts can be written in either language. The deadline for abstract submission is 5 September 2019. Anonymous abstracts in .doc/.docx/.rtf format should be sent to the following email address:, with “ABSTRACT” stated as the email subject. Note that the abstract should not exceed 4000 characters, excluding references, otherwise it will be rejected on formal grounds. In the abstract, please define the problem, methods and findings of the research. The following information should be provided in the body of the e-mail:

- Title of the abstract (if your abstract is in Russian, please provide English translation),
- Author’s or authors’ first and last names (with English transliteration, if necessary), and affiliation(s),
- e-mail address.

If you use non-standard fonts, please attach them to the e-mail and send an additional copy of your abstract in .pdf format.

One individual may be involved in a maximum of two abstracts (maximum of one as sole author).

The decision of the Organizing Committee on the acceptance/rejection of submissions will be communicated to the authors no later than 21 September 2019.

We will be very grateful to potential submitters if they fill in the following short form: or send us by e-mail a preliminary version of the title of their abstract (together with the author details) by 24 March. This information will greatly help us in applying for a grant from The Russian Foundation for Basic Research. However, a) sending the preliminary version of the title is not obligatory and does not affect the abstract selection process; b) by sending a preliminary title the author is not supposed to commit oneself to submitting an actual abstract, and if he does submit at a later point, the actual title of the abstract can be entirely or partly different from the preliminary version.

There is no participation fee.
