The conference theme is 'Linguistic Varieties in Contact' (both between languages and dialects); other related contributions will also be considered.

In addition to the normal oral presentations, in this edition of the conference we will have an additional poster session.
Abstracts may be submitted at http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/LARP2012-MX_IU and the contact email is larp2012.mxiu at gmail.com.

The preferred languages for presentation at LARP are Spanish and English, but presentation in other Romance languages are also accepted.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is (in English, Spanish or any other Romance language) April 30, 2012. We request that the abstracts not be longer than one-page (single spaced, Times 12pt); there may be an additional page for bibliography or figures. Please specify the preferred nature of your submission, oral or poster. Only one individual and/or one co-authored paper will be accepted.
