ALS2019 Call for Panels and Preconference Workshop Sessions

The 2019 conference of the Australian Linguistic Society (ALS2019) will take place at Macquarie University in Sydney, on 11-13 December 2019, with pre-conference workshops to be held on Tuesday 10th December.

The Australian Linguistic Society acknowledges the International Year of Indigenous languages by proposing for its 2019 conference the overarching theme Celebrating Diversity. We will celebrate the diversity of Indigenous and non-Indigenous languages, in Australia and elsewhere, as well as the diversity of people who engage with these languages, or with linguistics, broadly conceived. Although proposals that resonate with the theme Celebrating Diversity will be especially welcome, proposals may be on any topic relevant to the interests of members of the ALS.

Proposals for themed panel sessions within the main conference (11-13 Dec) and pre-conference workshop sessions on the 10th of December can be for single sessions (90 minutes), double sessions (2x90 minutes) or all-day sessions (3x90 minutes). Whether for the themed panel sessions or the pre-conference workshop, proposals should include: (1) Title, (2) Outline and Motivation (200 words max), and (3) Outline of the full planned proceedings; this may include specific speakers/titles for talks, or intended profiles of who/what is to be included, and whether you plan to do a public call for papers. Workshop and panel convenors will be fully responsible for ensuring quality through the appropriate process of review, selection, and for organization of constituent paper presentations. Themed panel and workshop proposals will not go through the EasyChair review procedure that the stand-alone ALS2019 papers will go through. However, if an abstract is not accepted for a specific panel/workshop, the panel/workshop organisers may forward it on to the main ALS conference for consideration.

Please send your proposal to
The deadline for proposals is Friday 17 May 2019.
