Meeting Description:

The 43rd Annual Meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society (BLS 43) will take
place Friday through Sunday, February 3 - 5, 2017, on the UC Berkeley campus. 
BLS 43 welcomes abstract submissions from all areas of descriptive,
experimental, and theoretical linguistics.

New this year, BLS will host an undergraduate poster session.  We invite
undergraduates and recent graduates who are not yet enrolled in graduate
programs to submit abstracts related to the areas of phonetics, phonology,
morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics,
historical/comparative linguistics, computational linguistics, and
psycholinguistics.  Descriptive, theoretical, and experimental approaches are
all welcome.

Participation in BLS 43 is an excellent way to receive feedback on your work
from prominent scholars, including invited speakers and those giving talks
within the general session, special session, and parasession. The special
session will focus on language contact and dynamics, and the areal parasession
will highlight the languages of North and Central America.  

Invited Speakers:

Norma Mendoza-Denton (University of California, Los Angeles)
Omer Preminger (University of Maryland)
Keren Rice (University of Toronto)
Natalie Schilling (Georgetown University)
Sarah Thomason (University of Michigan)

Submission Guidelines:

The period for submissions is now open.  Please submit your abstracts through
our EasyChair conference page by 11:59 pm PST on November 1, 2016. 

Please submit all abstracts through EasyChair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bls43).  Authors will be notified of
acceptance by December 1.  

Authors may maximally submit one single-authored abstract and one co-authored
abstract. Abstracts, including titles, data, and examples, must fit onto 1
page with 1'' margins and 12pt font. References may be included on a separate
page. Abstracts must be anonymous; omit names or phrasing (e.g. my paper
(Author 20XX) ) that would otherwise reveal author identity. Surname-year
citations (Author 20XX) that do not identify the author of the abstract as the
author of the cited paper are acceptable.

Please fill out all required fields in EasyChair and check the “Undergraduate
Poster Session” option as well as at least one box indicating a topic
corresponding to the linguistic subfield(s) of greatest relevance to your
abstract. All submissions will be anonymized for review.
