Call Deadline: 15-Nov-2021

Meeting Description:

We are very pleased to announce that the 32nd edition of Semantics and Linguistic Theory will be co-hosted by El Colegio de Mexico and Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, on June 8-10, 2022, in Mexico City.  Save the date!

Semantics and Linguistic Theory (SALT) is the premier North American conference on semantics as a part of linguistic theory.

Call for Papers:

Semantics and Linguistic Theory 32 will take place in Mexico City and will be co-hosted by El Colegio de Mexico and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, on June 8 – 10, 2022. SALT 32 will be held in a hybrid format (or a virtual format, depending on the COVID-19 situation in 2022).

We invite submission of abstracts for 30-minute oral presentations (with an additional 10 minutes for questions) or posters (with a short lightning round presentation prior to the poster session) on any topic in natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory. Abstracts (and their metadata) must be completely anonymous. The main text should be at most 2 pages (US Letter or A4) in length, including examples, with an optional third page ONLY for references, large graphs, tables, pictures, figures, and non-English, glossed examples. The abstract should use a 12pt font and 1 inch margins (for US Letter) or 3 cm margins (for A4) on all four sides. The abstract must be submitted as a single PDF file. In addition to the intellectual interest of the abstract, clarity and readability will also be taken into account in reviewing. The name of the studied language(s) should be included as keywords in the abstract (even if it is English). Authors may be involved in at most two abstracts and may be the sole author of at most one abstract.

SALT does not accept papers that, at the time of the conference, have been published or have been accepted for publication. In addition, preference will be given to presentations that are not duplicated at other major conferences. If the work or a close variant of it is under submission to or accepted for publication or presentation in any other major venue (such as a national or international conference or a journal/book chapter), we request that the authors create a small section titled ''Additional Submission'' after the references at the end of the paper. This section should include the other venue(s) for which the work has been submitted, the status of those submissions, and an indication of any major aspects of the SALT abstract not submitted elsewhere. We require that authors update us by email if/when there is a relevant change in the status of other submissions.

Submissions should be made via the SALT32 EasyChair site:
