The Association for Linguistic Typology now solicits bids for a conference
venue and host for ALT 13, 2019. The cycle for ALT 13 will return to
Europe, so we seek bids for that general geographic region. We invite bids
especially from places in Europe where ALT has not been before.

In order to be included for consideration by ALT's Executive Committee,
please reply to the ALTsecretary and conference organizer, Kristine
Hildebrandt (khildeb at siue.edu), with responses to the following questions:

1. Organizing Committee

Who are proposed members of the local organizing committee? What is the
availability of administrative support at the host institution?

2. Location

Describe the availability of conference halls of various sizes. Describe
also the availability and accessibility of hotels and student
accommodation. Describe also the logistics of venue access, including
access by airport/rail and by local public transport. Keep in mind possible
conflicts with respect to timing, for example local holidays, events,
celebrations, etc. in that location.

3. Timing

Describe the preferred timing, keeping in mind that ALT normally takes
place during summer, and describe or justify timing alternatives (for
example late summer or early autumn), if available. Please keep in mind the
availability of conference halls, hotels etc. at your institution and in
your area. Please describe any possible combination and/or conflicts with
other workshops or conferences at the proposed time of year (e.g. the LSA
Summer Institute in the U.S., and the ICHL).

4. Finances

Please describe any potential funding sources (research councils,
university funding, or other sponsors) that can be used towards ALT 13.
Describe also options available from your institution for offering
scholarships to students and scholars from developing countries.

5. The Role of ALT

The local host institution is the primary organizing force for ALT conferences.
As such, the host is expected to have its own decision-making process in
place. However, ALT will serve an advisory role in particular matters,
including local organizing committee set-up, program committee
establishment, facilitating calls for abstracts and award organization, and
the ALT business meeting.

Please send this information or direct any questions to Kristine
Hildebrandt (khildeb at siue.edu) by 31 May, 2016. The Executive Committee
will consider the applications, with the intention of selecting the venue
by 15 July, 2016.
