Meeting Description:

The Slavic Linguistics Society (SLS) is a professional organization devoted to the systematic and scholarly study of the Slavic languages. The organization brings together academics from Europe and North America (and elsewhere) through an annual conference that alternates between North American and European institutions, a mailing list, and other activities. It seeks to promote dialogue across different sub-disciplines of linguistics and theoretical frameworks.

Membership in the Slavic Linguistics Society is open to anyone, regardless of academic rank or employment. We particularly encourage graduate students to join (there is a reduced student membership fee!), and to become involved with the activities of the organization.

Call for Papers:

The 15th Annual Meeting of the Slavic Linguistics Society will be conducted virtually.
The dates will remain 4–6 September 2020.
We are therefore extending the deadline for another two weeks, through 15 June 2020. Other than that, not much has changed. There will however be no registration fee.
Papers dealing with any aspect of Slavic linguistics and within any framework are appropriate, as well as those that represent cross-disciplinary approaches (sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, language acquisition, etc.). All talks are for 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Keynote speakers:
Joanna Błaszczak (University of Wrocław)
Željko Bošković (University of Connecticut)
Małgorzata Ćavar (Indiana University)
Maria Polinsky (University of Maryland)

Your abstract should:
- Be anonymous
- Be submitted in pdf format, with any non-standard fonts embedded
- Be no longer than two pages, including references, figures, and data (single-spaced with 1-inch margins, 12-point text, preferably Times New Roman)
- As appropriate, identify the framework, describe the methodology, explain how the data are analyzed—in other words, please be as concrete and specific as possible in describing your work.
- Abstracts should be submitted using EasyAbs:
- If you are a student, under the “Institution” field please also include that information (in order to be considered for the Charles E. Townsend Award).
- Each individual may submit at most one single and one co-authored paper
- An up-to-date SLS membership will be required for presenting at the annual meeting, but is not required at the time of initial abstract submission.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 June 2020.
