Meeting Description:

Reminder: Upcoming Deadline for Submission of Abstracts

Semantics and Linguistic Theory 15
March 25-27 2005
University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)

Invited Speakers:

David Beaver, Stanford University
Scott Soames, University of Southern California
Anna Szabolcsi, New York University

Semantics and Linguistic Theory 15 will be hosted by the Linguistics
Department of the University of California Los Angeles. The conference will
take place on March 25 through 27 2005. Please note that these dates
include the holidays Good Friday and Easter.

SALT 15 invites submissions for 30-minute presentations (plus ten-minute
discussions) on any topic pertaining to natural language semantics  with
relevance to linguistic theory. Abstracts should be at most 2 pages in
length (including examples and references) using a 12 pt. font with 1-inch
(2.5 cm) margins on all four side. In the interest of fairness, these
limitations will be strictly enforced.  The same person may submit at most
one abstract as a sole author and one as a co-author.

We especially encourage abstracts that deal with the semantics of
underrepresented languages, including, but not limited to, the native
languages of the Americas.

Pending funding, we hope to be able to reimburse student speakers for their
travel costs. Please indicate if you would qualify for such a grant in the
body of your abstract submission email (see below).

As a matter of general policy, SALT does not accept papers that at the time
of the conference have been published or have been accepted for
publication. In addition, preference will be given to presentations that
are not duplicated at other major conferences. We therefore request that
authors indicate prior or planned presentations of their papers along with
their contact information when they submit their abstracts.

We strongly encourage electronic submissions, which may be sent to
salt at ucla.edu. We ask authors to adhere to the following guidelines:

 -  Please write the (first) author's name plus the word 'abstract' in the
subject line of your message (e.g., 'Jones abstract'), and include author
name(s), affiliation and contact information in the body of the email.

 - Please send the abstract as an attachment.  We prefer .pdf files but
will also accept plain text or MS-Word files; if you send the latter, we
ask that you send us a .rtf rather than .doc file if possible.

If you choose to send in your abstract via regular mail, please submit 7
anonymous copies plus a separate card giving the title of the abstract,
author name(s), affiliation, and contact information. Abstracts should be
mailed to:

         SALT 15 Committee
         UCLA, Department of Linguistics
         3125 Campbell Hall
         Los Angeles, CA 90095-1543

Abstracts (electronic or otherwise) should reach us by 12pm Pacific time on
December 20, 2004.  We regret that we will not be able to consider
abstracts arriving after this date.
