Apologies for cross-posting

The 14th International Conference of the Association for Linguistic
Typology will be held at the University of Pavia, Italy, on 4-6 September
(Wednesday-Friday), 2019.  Abstracts on any topic in typology will be
invited for oral presentations, posters, and a limited number of theme

*Abstract submission for the general session opens around the end of
November, and more detailed information will be provided in the second
circular. At this time, we would like to invite submissions for theme
session proposals.*

Theme sessions will consist of up to seven oral presentations on a common
theme. They are proposed by a theme-session convenor. Proposals should
consist of a maximally 500-word description plus a preliminary list of up
to six potential authors (with titles) who have expressed serious interest
in participating. If accepted, a theme session will be listed in the final
call for abstracts (end of November 2018), so that scholars not initially
contacted by the convenor have a chance to participate.

Abstracts submitted to a theme session will be evaluated by the Program
Committee. There may be up to five theme sessions.

*Theme session proposals should be sent to alt2019.themesessions at gmail.com

*Deadline for receipt of theme session proposals:* 15 November 2018

*Notification of acceptance for theme sessions: *25 November 2018
