Call for volunteers and nominations:  ALT Scientific Committee

For the 2015 ALT Conference the Executive Committee is starting up a new 
procedure for reading and ranking abstracts.  To increase the 
membership’s involvement in the program, and to broaden the range of 
subfields represented among abstract readers, we will appoint a 
Scientific Committee to help the Program Committee read and rate 
abstracts. Nominations and self-nominations for the Scientific Committee 
are now open. Members must be ALT members and must have a Ph.D.

Workload of the Scientific Committee:

Abstract reading will take place in late January to early February.
Scientific Committee members will read abstracts in their own subfields.
The number of abstracts per member will probably be 5-15 (it depends on 
the size of the committee and the number of abstracts submitted)

The Nominating Committee will evaluate the nominations and appoint the 
Scientific Committee.

YES, Scientific Committee members can submit abstracts for the 2015 

How to volunteer or nominate: Send an email to:

       <nominations.alt at gmail.com>

Include your (or your nominee’s) full name, institution, email address, 
and area(s) of interest and expertise using these subfields:

historical lingusitics

(These will help the Program Committee assign abstracts to readers.)

DEADLINE for nominations and volunteers: November 15, 2014.

Johanna Nichols, President, ALT
Jean-Christophe, Secretary-Treasurer, ALT
