Second Call for Abstracts

Members and non-members wishing to present a paper at ALT VI are asked
to e-mail a one-page abstract to the chair of the program committee,
Lindsay Whaley, to reach him no later than January 1, 2005. A second
page may be included with the abstract listing data.  The abstract
itself should contain no identification of the author.  A separate page
should indicate the title of the abstract, the name(s) of the author(s),
and one mailing address, with telephone, fax, and e-mail address as

The committee strongly encourages submissions by e-mail (preferably with
the abstract in pdf format and author information as part of the e-mail
text), but abstracts may also be sent by fax.  Authors are asked to
check their pdf files carefully to ensure that special characters are
embedded properly.

Submissions should be sent to:
lindsay.whaley at dartmouth.edu
(fax number: 1-603-646-9288)

The time allotted for presentation and discussion is 30 minutes. Members
may also submit abstracts for symposia, including the names of
participants and the amount of time requested. Participants may not be
involved in more than two abstracts, of which at most one may be
single-authored. English is the preferred language at the conference.
Talks in other languages will be accepted only at the discretion of the
program committee.

By February 1, 2005 the program committee will convey its decision on
acceptance of papers to those submitting abstracts. The committee
consists of Balthasar Bickel, David Gil, Aditi Lahiri, Brian Migliazza,
Uri Tadmor and Lindsay Whaley (chair).


The ALT has a limited amount of funds to provide partial support for a
small number of participants attending the ALT VI meeting.

Financial support for ALT VI will be awarded on the basis of the
following two factors: (a) high quality of abstract; and (b) financial
need of applicant.

Persons wishing to apply for financial support should include an
application for financial support when submitting their abstract. The
application should consist of a brief (one paragraph) statement
explaining why the applicant considers himself/herself to be in need of
financial assistance. No applications for financial support will be
considered after the January 1 deadline.

The ALT funds are intended for scholars from developing countries and
for students anywhere. Currently-employed professional linguists from
affluent developed countries should not apply.
