We invite abstracts for 20-minutes presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion) on topics dealing with formal aspects of Slavic syntax, semantics, morphology, phonology, psycholinguistics, and computational linguistics (main conference). In addition to the main conference, there will be two workshops focusing on secondary imperfectives in Slavic (workshop 1) and computational aspects of translation (workshop 2). For details about the workshops and procedures of application, we refer to the respective calls on the conference homepage.
