Papers and posters

Deadline for submission: Sept. 13th, 2013.
Link for online submission: myreview
Contact for questions: Erica Cartmill, evolangx@gmail.com

Submissions can be both for podium presentations (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion) and for poster presentations. They are limited to one first-authored podium presentation and one first-authored poster per person. There is no limit on second authored submissions. - When submitting, please indicate whether your submission is to be considered for inclusion as a talk, as a poster, or as either of the two.

For both podium and poster presentations, there are two possible types of submission:

(a) Full papers, which can have a length of between 6 and 8 pages, and
(b) Abstracts, which can be up to 2 pages long.

All accepted submissions will be published in a bound proceedings volume to appear before the start of the conference.


Submissions must be formatted according the following guidelines/stylesheets:

Submissions that do not conform to these guidelines will not appear in the conference proceedings. In particular, please do not change the margins, line spacing, font size, etc. Please note: For 2-page abstracts, please use the same template as for the long papers, but just make them 2 pages long. Additionally, there is no need to include the "abstract" section in 2-page abstracts.

Normal standards of academic excellence apply. Submitted papers should aim to make clear their own substantive claim, relating this to relevant scientific literature, and briefly setting out the method by which the claim is substantiated, the nature of the relevant data, and/or the core of the theoretical argument concerned. Submissions may be theory-based, but empirical studies should not rest on preliminary results. All submissions are refereed by at least three relevant referees, and acceptance is based on a scoring scheme pooling the reports of the referees. In recent conferences, the acceptance rate has been about 50%. Notification of acceptance will be given by Oct. 15th, 2013.
