Deadline for submissions: January 10, 2014

The Graduate Program in Linguistics at the University of Western Ontario is pleased to present the Sixth Annual Western Interdisciplinary Student Symposium on Language Research (WISSLR), to be held March 14-15, 2014. In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the Masters program at Western, we are pleased to invite students of all levels to submit abstracts on original research on language from a range of disciplinary approaches. Topics may come from such areas as theoretical linguistics, applied linguistics, computational linguistics, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, communication disorders, natural language processing, linguistic anthropology, linguistic interfaces, philosophy of language, to name a few. 
The symposium will be held at the University of Western Ontario, with the possibility of streaming live to the Internet using Blackboard Collaborate technology. We also welcome presentations from other locations via the same means (all software is downloadable for conference participants).

Each participant will have 15 minutes for their presentation, and 5 minutes for questions and discussion. Students of all levels are encouraged to participate. Works in progress are welcome.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words, double-spaced (plus a separate page for references) can be submitted to wisslr.uwo at gmail.com, by January 10, 2014. Successful applicants will be notified by January 17, 2014. Please send your anonymous abstract as a .pdf attachment, and include your name, academic affiliation and level, email, and title. There will be a number of spots reserved for undergraduate presenters. There are a limited number of spots available for off-site presenters, so preference for online presentations will be given to international candidates. Partial travel assistance may be available for some participants coming to London for this event.
