Full Title: Association for Linguistic Typology Biennial Conference 
Short Title: ALT10 

Date: 15-Aug-2013 - 18-Aug-2013
Location: Leipzig, Germany 
Contact Person: Martin Haspelmath
Meeting Email: ALT10 at eva.mpg.de
Web Site: http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/conference/2013_ALT10/ 

Linguistic Field(s): Typology 

Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2013 

Meeting Description:

The 10th Biennial Conference of the Association for Linguistic Typology will
be held in Leipzig, 15-18 August 2013. It is organized by the Linguistics
Department of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology.

Final Call for Papers:

Abstracts on any topic in typology are invited for oral presentations or posters. Non-members of ALT may submit abstracts but will be expected to join ALT in order to present a paper at the meeting. Oral presentations may be submitted with the specification of a theme session; they will then be jointly evaluated by the Programme Committee and the theme-session convenor(s). 

Deadline for receipt of abstracts: January 15, 2013 (papers/posters)
Notification of acceptance: February 28, 2013 

Papers are anonymously reviewed; in line with previous meetings, the committee will strive to ensure that selection is rigorous but that acceptance rate is not too low. 

Categories of Submission:

(1) Oral presentation (single or multiple author): Timing will depend on the number of papers accepted for presentation and will most probably range between 20 and 25 minutes per paper, plus 10 minutes for discussion. 
(2) Poster: One or more poster sessions will be organized, depending on demand.
(3) Oral/poster: This means you prefer an oral presentation but can also present a poster. If there are more good abstracts than we can accommodate, the Programme Committee will schedule some as posters. If you choose either category ‘poster’ or ‘oral/poster’, this will probably increase your chances of acceptance. 

Theme Sessions:

More detailed descriptions are available at http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/conference/2013_ALT10/files/theme_sessions.html.

1. Generalized noun modifying clause constructions (Convenor: Yoshiko Matsumoto)
2. Typological hierarchies in synchrony and diachrony (Convenors: Sonia Cristofaro, Fernando Zúñiga, Karin Stüber)
3. Lexical typology of qualitative concepts (Convenors: Ekaterina Rakhilina & Tatiana Reznikova)
4. Linked Data in Linguistic Typology (Convenor: Sebastian Nordhoff)
5. Quantitative Linguistic Typology: State-of-the-Art and Beyond (Convenor: Harald Hammarström)
6. Predicate-centered focus from a cross-linguistic perspective (Convenors: Tom Güldemann & Ines Fiedler)
