Meeting Description:

The 96th Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Society of America will take place from January 6-9 2022 at the:

Washington Hilton
1919 Connecticut Ave.
Washington, DC 20009

A note on meeting format: The bulk of the annual meeting content will be presented in person. Attendees who are unable or unwilling to attend the in-person meeting will be offered a virtual alternative.

Calls for Participation:

- Call for Poster and 20-minute paper abstracts (May 1 - late June):

20-Minute Papers:
The papers accepted for presentation at the Annual Meeting will be scheduled in themed sessions of three, six, or seven papers, on Thursday evening, Friday and Saturday morning and afternoon, and on Sunday morning. Each paper presentation lasts 20 minutes, and is followed by 10 minutes of discussion.

Poster Sessions:
Depending on subject and/or content, it may be more appropriate to submit an abstract to the poster session for visual presentation rather than to a 20-minute paper session. In general, the sort of research which is most effectively presented as a poster draws its major conclusions from the thoughtful examination of charts and graphs, rather than a sustained chain of verbal argumentation. Therefore, authors will want to make points in narrative form as brief as possible. The poster should be able to ''stand alone'', that is, be understandable even if the author is not present, and should not require audiovisual support.

- Call for organized session proposals (due May 17):

Organized sessions may be on any linguistic topic that would be of interest to meeting attendees (e.g. characteristics of a particular language family; trends and advances in a particular subfield of linguistics; current debates on a particular research topic). They may also address topics of interest to particular groups of attendees (e.g. students, hopeful book authors, prospective grant-writers, policy advisors). They may have a theoretical or a pragmatic focus. Graduate students and junior faculty are particularly invited to submit proposals on professional development topics. Proposals are particularly welcome from groups historically underrepresented among LSA members, from LSA Committees and Special Interest Groups, and on topics relating to the Mid-Atlantic region in general and Washington, DC in particular.

A session may take many forms: symposium, workshop, tutorial, or another form as appropriate. It may be either 1 hour and 30 minutes or 3 hours in length. Specific examples and further information are given on our website:
