Pre-Conference Workshop:
Title:New Methods in Hispanic Linguistics

As part of the 2011 HLS at the University of Georgia, we will also be 
hosting a workshop entitled /New Methods in Hispanic Linguistics /on 
Thursday, October 6^th . The workshop will be aimed at highlighting new 
analytical developments in linguistics, including (but not limited to) 
experimental and quantitative techniques. The papers selected will be 
grouped according to the area of focus of the research and/or the nature 
of the methodological innovation employed. Presenters areencouraged to 
submit proposals that concentrate on providing introductory overviews 
and brief 'hands-on' tutorials of current methodological tools (e.g., 
methods for statistical analysis or software for psycholinguistic 
experimentation) for workshop attendees. As the methodologies utilized 
in linguistic studies continue to include a broader range of training in 
quantitative and experimental techniques, we are using this workshop at 
the 2011 HLS as a means of providing a forum for discussing best 
practices in the field.Facilities for conducting workshop-style 
presentations will be available for this workshop.

All submissions for the conference workshop must be received by May 20, 
2011 and should follow the same guidelines as the papers for the general 
sessions. In submitting an abstract for the conference workshop via 
EasyAbs, please be sure to indicate that the abstract is intended for 
the "Special Session". Any questions regarding abstracts for the 
conference workshop can be sent to hls2011 at
