ALT 10 (Leipzig, Germany)
Association for Linguistics Typology
10th Biennial Conference
August 15 -- 18, 2013 (Thursday -- Sunday)
Abstracts on any topic in typology are invited for oral presentations,
posters, and a limited number of theme sessions. Non-members of ALT may
submit abstracts but will be expected to join ALT in order to present a
paper at the meeting.
Deadline for receipt of abstracts: January 15, 2013 (papers/posters) or
December 10, 2012 (theme sessions: see below)
Notification of acceptance: February 28, 2013
There may be up to four theme sessions, and two poster sessions. 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
(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.
(4) Theme session: Theme sessions will in general consist of three to
seven oral presentations on a common theme. They are proposed by a
theme-session convenor. Proposals consist of a maximally 500-word
description plus a preliminary list of up to six potential authors (with
titles) who have expressed serious interest in participating. If
accepted, a theme session will be listed in the final call for abstracts
(late December 2012), so that linguists who were not initially contacted
by the convenor also have a chance to participate. Abstracts submitted
to a theme session will be evaluated jointly by the Programme Committee
and the convenor.
