Call for papers

We invite PhD and MA students for abstract submissions in any field of theoretical linguistics, especially on topics in syntax, morphology, phonology (including prosody), formal semantics and pragmatics (including information structure), as well as their interfaces with phonetics, language acquisition, and psycholinguistics. Both theoretical and experimental papers are solicited, and synchronic and diachronic approaches are equally welcome. Recent PhD holders (from 2014) are welcome to submit their abstracts.

The conference will include both oral and poster sessions. Each talk will be given 35 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion. Poster sessions will last about 60 minutes during which the authors are required to be present and ready to answer questions from conference participants passing by. The poster format is 100x70cm (vertical orientation). The language of the conference is English.
