Call for papers

Call Deadline: 29-Mar-2021

Extended Call Deadline: 16-Apr-2021

Types of Proposals:

  • Individual Paper
  • Thematic Panel

1. Individual Paper
Papers dealing with any aspect of Slavic linguistics and within any framework are welcome to be submitted, as well as those that represent cross-disciplinary approaches (sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, language acquisition, etc.). All talks are to be 20 minutes in length, plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Abstracts should be written in English and should be limited to one page of text, and a second page for references and examples. Abstracts should be emailed to in PDF format, with any non-standard fonts embedded.

The abstract itself must not contain the name(s) or affiliation(s) of the author(s) or any other information that identifies the author(s). The body of the cover e-mail should include the paper title, author name(s), affiliation(s), status (faculty, graduate student, etc.), and contact information. Graduate student abstracts will be entered into consideration for the annual Townsend award.

Submissions are limited to one single-authored and one jointly authored abstract per applicant.

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.

2. Thematic Panel
Thematic panel proposals should include the abstract of the panel session limited to one page, panel title and names of the proposed participants (up-to four panelists in a two-hour time-slot), titles of the talks in the panel.

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.
