31st TABU Dag 2010
University of Groningen, The Netherlands
3-4 June 2010
Abstract submission deadline: 22 March 2010

The Center for Language and Cognition Groningen is pleased to announce 
the 31st TABU Dag, which will take place at the University of 
Groningen on 3 and 4 June 2010. Senior researchers, postdoctoral 
researchers, (post)graduate students, and others who are interested 
are warmly invited to participate.

TABU Dag is an annual international linguistics conference which 
offers excellent opportunities to meet other linguists and discuss 
current research in several areas of linguistics. (Post)graduate 
students and postdoctoral researchers in particular are encouraged to 
present their work.

In addition to the presentations, four plenary lectures will be held. 
We are happy to have Michael Cysouw (Max Planck Institute for 
Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig), Julia Hirschberg (Columbia 
University), John C. Trueswell (University of Pennsylvania), and Sten 
Vikner (University of Aarhus) as keynote speakers at the conference.

TABU Dag provides an opportunity for the participants to present work 
addressing any of the following research areas:

- Computational linguistics
- Discourse and communication
- Language and literacy development across the life span
- Language variation and language change
- Neurolinguistics
- Syntax and semantics

In addition, we encourage abstract submissions from other linguistic 
areas, which may have remained unmentioned in the overview above.

We invite short abstracts for presentations and posters in English.

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words. Abstracts should be 
submitted, preferably in PDF format, via the submission system on the 
conference website.

Depending on the number of submissions, some authors may be invited 
for a poster presentation.

Time allotted for presentations is 20 minutes, followed by 5 minutes 
of discussion. The official language of the conference is English.

The deadline for the abstract submission is 22 March 2010.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent on 19 April 2010.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Groningen!
