> *ALT 10 (Leipzig, Germany)*--
> 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.
