This year’s Australian Linguistic Society 2017, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Society, welcomes submissions for oral presentations and poster presentations on any topic within the fields of general linguistics and sociolinguistics. Oral presentations are 20 min presentation + 10 min question time. Poster presentations allow authors to display and explain their A0-sized poster during a dedicated poster session.

Once you are logged in select the ‘New submission’ tab. You will be asked to enter your author details, title, abstract and keywords in the text boxes. The system will ask you to select your preferred presentation type i.e. oral presentation or poster. We strongly encourage a poster submission if your dataset lends itself well to graphical presentation, in-depth personal discussion, or is a dataset of modest size. Posters will have a session on Day 2 of the conference. The system will also ask you to enter all author and institution information into an online form
